Eat What You Like....Hanging with Friends

I am still feeling good and on the workout wagon.  I had a great friend come into town and we had a wonderful weekend. We ain't and drank and lived it up all night.
I ate so much I normally wouldn't but its OK.

I don't feel guilty

I don't regret it

I do plan to do it again

Back In the Swing of Thing...

Ive took about 5weeks off from my daily gym routine.  It started out as laziness and ended up being mandatory. I had an operation that prevented me from going to the gym for 4weeks.  My rest period is over and its time to get back into my routine.

I have for the last 3 days been back to my normal two a day workout. I'm so happy to report.  I have dearly missed going to the gym.  I missed the feeling of accomplishment, seeing the regular instructors, and even the sweat.  It felt so good to let the toxins out my body through good old fashion sweat. 

I also weighted in on Sunday and my CURRENT WEIGHT IS: 250.1lbs...
I'm pretty happy that I didn't gain and I continued my slow but steady decline in my weight! Like the tortoise I guess slow and stead will win the weight loss race in the end.

Have a good Week and Enjoy your workout!

Hi Ho Hi Ho...It's off to work I go...

Well me and the 2700 other dwarfs that teach in the state of Texas are headed back to work for our 1st days of school. I have been busy this summer preparing. A lot of the time neglecting my workouts and diet due to late night prep work.

I won't say I am the perky super teacher but this year I plan to try to be.  I will be back on my routine and I am going to challenge my students to work for their best also.

Materials Used: Sheet protectors,fabric tape, cardboard, white paper
My husband has always supported my career and this year is no different. Since I had surgery he will be at the school helping me set up my room and decorate.  He also made my student white boards. He finished them in about an hour. THE MAN IS TALENTED!
Finished Product Student Whiteboards!

Thanks for Reading,

Shades of Blue

I'm not depressed but I have been hit by a case of the blues. I don't know what to do to bring it around.

What to do when you're feeling blue?

Work starts Monday and in my head its going to be great, I'm a little afraid in my heart I won't be able to make that greatness happen. :(

Might explain the blues


Still no workouts went to the store with my daughter my body is mad it me. Still on the mend

Tired or What else is new in your world?

I have been working non-stop since June. This doesn't seem unusual except for the fact I:m a school teacher who would generally have a few months to relax and detox from the school year.  This summer I've spent the last few weeks preparing for the upcoming year. So in total I've had just about 2weeks off.  I'm not complaining. I'm thankful for my job in a time when so many are unemployed.

I haven't been working out much but I have been trying to eat healthy so stay tuned. I have a few new recipes coming up and new workout I plan to try this week.
