The new job seems to be worst on a Monday, or maybe it just seems that way... I enjoy many aspects, just wish that the 'management' had a more positive induction programme and managed their staff in a more personable way - instead of using their... Read more

Yay! Another pound gone!! Yay! Tried on some more clothes as I swopped 'wardrobes' from summer to winter and they're getting looser... I bought a suit with trousers and skirt a couple of months ago; both were too tight... tried them on toda... Read more

Last night I wore a pair of trousers I hadn't worn in a month - they pulled straight up without wiggling and wriggling... this morning I put on a pair of jeans I hadn't worn in a month or two - they did up easily and I could see no muffin top gl... Read more

Thursday having been manic, not to mention emotional, at work, today was almost tranquil by comparison. I taught 2 maths lessons for my colleagues - I've missed doing that since changing jobs this month... it was fun! We were all more relaxed a... Read more

Another 'interesting' day at work... good thing I've got broad shoulders as the day ended in tears for both of my young teachers, one because of TOM coupled with behavioural problems in the class, the other because she is a newly qualified teach... Read more

Up at 5:20 again, but left work at 5:30pm today, after a full day's teaching, followed by a 'Meet the Teacher' session with the year's parents. It was great. I stunned them into silence and managed to get them onside by saying all the right thin... Read more

Got up at 5:20, got to school at 7:00, no morning break, a very short lunchbreak, just enough to bolt down my salad and some fruit... homa at 7pm, cooked dinner, collapsed on sofa after, at 9pm, having enetered my points. Too tired to exercise, ... Read more

Really pleased, it's been 9 days since I last weighed and measured ME and it was good news. 2 pounds and 1 waist inch down! I'm pushing myself harder during the exercising and I'm managing it - not used to this - I am by no means a n... Read more

Today, finally, I did it! I brought up my nutrition feedback report and I was so close to being on track with everything that it's a YES!!!! I've struggled to eat enough protein, carbs fibre and calcium. Today it was all good and I was only just... Read more

... so today I concentrated on strength training, as I had done LOTS of stair-climbing at school, including a few times from the ground floor up to the third, at 2 flights per level!! Funnily enough I'm not as tired now, even though I was at abo... Read more

We had a barbecue tonight. I find them difficult, we always prepare too much food and we always end up eating too much. BUT tonight I managed it! We had my niece and her husband over. I had a little of everything, including sparkling w... Read more
