My sister in-law started another blog today. This one is about the life of a sock monkey. It is actually kind of funny. I wish that I could think of ideas like that. Of course, I wish that I had a computer at my house so that I could write and do stuff like that at my house instead of having to wait once or twice a week to go out to the in-laws and use theirs. Oh well, there is only a couple of weeks left of vacation before heading back to school. I can do more then.

I'm worried about starting another class. I really need to finish my graduate application. I really hope that I can move on the salary scale. Of course by the time taxes are taken out and insurance eats up the rest, there really isn't that much left.

I need some ideas on which to write about. I'm still working on the weight loss thing. I have some green tea pill help now. I've also decided to try and do some pilates while the kids take their naps. Well, those are the ideas anyway. We'll see what happens.

Bad day

I was all ready to be good on Friday, when I had to switch lunches with one of my kids. I ordered peanut butter and jelly for all of my kids for our field trip and she didn't like pb & j. I felt sorry for her because she is always good and would never complain about it, so I switched. Today we're celebrating my sister-in-law's birthday and eating pizza. I did excercise with my daughter the other day. She did really good with telling mommy to "come on," "get up," and other motivational things. It was really depressing to see how bad I had gotten.

Tomorrow is another day.

The goal? 145. How much to go? 136
I've lost 20 pounds before, I can do this! I hope.
That Bahama trip is looming closer and closer.

Off the Wagon

Oh, I was bad today. It didn't start out so horrible. I had an icecream with the kids on our field trip. Then after school I started nibbling and nibbling and eating and eating. It was not a pretty sight. I was down to 181 today. We did walk alot though. Those poor little kids were so tired. I felt sorry for them and me. Tomorrow is another day. I've got to get back on track.

This is just a minor setback. I will not go down the tubes simply from one mistake. It is done and over so onward we go.

One pound since yesterday lost! Hopefully never to be found again. I even cheated on a tiny piece of cheesecake. I tried to be good.

My "friend" came back from her Mexican cruise. She was showing me her pictures. Many bathing suit pictures. Which was no big deal, but man it made me think about how much weight I need to loose before I go. I miss being pregnant and eating everything I wanted. Of course, I was a HUGE pregnant lady, but I didn't care and the baby was still healthy.

One small victory for me, one long journey to go.

I think I've lost

I can't remember what my last weight was, but I think that I've lost a couple pounds at least. I weighed in this morning and I was 182. The seventies are coming. I had yogurt for breakfast. For lunch, I had a 1/2 chicken salad sandwich and a salad. I need to remember to bring my low fat ranch to school. For supper, I had a small TV dinner. I haven't had any dessert yet. I'm hoping that I can wait until I get home and then have some grapefruit. Onward to tomorrow. I also need to take some small apples to school. I did have 5 or six small animal crackers at the end of school. After school is such a hard time. So is late at night. I need to increase my water consumption. Not great, but not too bad.

Bits of Randomness

I think that someone else wrote with this title.
I think I like the look of blue and green together. (the new contemporary, yet easy-going, "think I'll go get a latte look.)
Why is it when you sit across the room you can think of everything to write. You sit down, then everything flows out your brain.
