Yesterday at school we had Field Day. This included lots of fun, active games for kids, like sack races and other kinds of relay races. All kinds of stuff. Anyway, one of the races the kids did was the "Leap Frog" race. Two kids are in a gro... Read more
It's almost summer and I'm the thinnest I've ever been in my adult life.

I'm ready for the school year to end! My students are driving me batty. I'm ready for summer, and so are they. I need a vacation so badly, but I'm not going to get one anytime soon. I start my summer job the Monday after school gets out. I ... Read more
Green poop...

At first I was alarmed by the green poop... but then I googled it and I realized that it was from all the spinach/romaine/broccoli, etc... So I'm definitely getting my veggies in! Hopefully I can turn my poop green more often!... Read more
A workout that really makes you lose weight!
Thursday, May 17, 2012      4 comments

I'm running the Couch to 5K Week one workout, but not quite as it was intended. Instead of running at an easy pace (slow enough so I can talk while running - as the podcast tells you to do), I'm sprinting! Go fast, very fast! I do one minute ... Read more
What's your weighing method?
Sunday, May 13, 2012      5 comments

I hate my scale. I really do. But I feel like I NEED it so much. I weigh daily, but I only record my weight on Friday mornings. This week I felt like I did so well with tracking and exercising and no weight was lost. Maintained. Great, rig... Read more

New things are happening! *Today I did three REAL box jumps. Not many I know, but they scare me! The step in my class is pretty high. I think I'm gonna go into that fitness room when there's not a class and practice box jumps. I was so ... Read more
Every muscle in my body is sore...ouchie!

I'm sore all over. My workouts this week have been really hardcore. Monday and Wednesday I went to my Abs class and a class called "Tone & Flex" that had me doing pushups, lunges, plie squats, burpees, and using free weights to work every mus... Read more
The Magical Weight Loss Solution
Monday, April 30, 2012      6 comments

Track in advance! It works! Yesterday I tracked all of the food that I was going to eat today. And I ONLY ate what was on that tracker. The Starburst in the candy dish (that's supposed to be for students) called to me, but I didn't answe... Read more
Taking the guess work out of weight loss
Sunday, April 29, 2012      5 comments

I am not giving myself choices this week. Today I made a list of meals for the week, made a grocery list, went shopping, and then made all of my lunches for the week. They're already in the fridge. I'm taking all of the guesswork out of eatin... Read more
My first 5K! Pics included :)
Sunday, April 22, 2012      8 comments

I did my first 5K today! It was along the beach, in Wilmington, NC. It was called the Race for the Planet. It was a great experience, and it helped that I freaking ROCKED it. I went faster than ever before. I ran and walked, but I did the ... Read more
Kicking it into high gear!
Saturday, April 21, 2012      5 comments

I haven't been myself lately. To use a cliche I hate, I'd say I'm "losing my spark." Yep. That's it. I haven't been tracking, I worked out only two days this week (even though I kicked a$$ those two days, lol) . I've just been going through... Read more

-Ate a TON of food over my Spring Break...haven't checked my weight yet. I'm scared. -Have my first 5K coming up on Sunday that I feel pretty unprepared for. I haven't spent enough time running outside. Today I did 4 miles, and I don't eve... Read more

I've been out of the game for the last week. I've barely been tracking, and I've only exercised maybe three times in the last two weeks. For SHAME. I think it's Spring fever. Last week, work was crazy and I had to stay late for a couple of d... Read more
Day 4 of reduced sugar. This is impossible.

Day 4 of Reduced Sugar and... I'm feeling better today. I slipped up with dinner, though. My husband got takeout. I asked for a grilled chicken sandwich with a side salad. They put barbecue sauce on the sandwich, and it was on a white s... Read more

Day 3 of greatly reduced sugar consumption and very few processed foods and... I'm starting to feel better. Not 100%, and I'm still really, really hungry all the time, but I am feeling less tired than yesterday. One weird thing - I feel ... Read more
