Busy, Busy, Busy

I have been so super busy lately. School is about to start back up and I am a teacher, so I have been running around trying to fix up my classroom. I am also about to start up tking my Masters classes again so that is also adding to the stress.

I a happy abut what I have done this summer, but I wish you could tell more when you look at me. My body seems slimmer to me, but some of my clothes fit a little snug around my belly and it doesn't look like I have done anything at all. I know this isn't all just going to magically fall off and it will take me awhile, but I wanted to go back finished with my weightloss. Two months to lose over 60 pounds?? Haha. Nice dream.

I have actually gained a little weight since I left in June, but I have managed to lose 2 cup sizes and maintain my loss in pant sizes. I think the gained weight is muscle from going to the gym a lot and running and when that evens out I will lose the weight number.

How can you be almost 200 pounds and wear a size 10 jean? That doesn't add up.

I hope everyones week has been going well. I need to up my water count and keep up with my calories. Those two things will have gotten me to my first reward. Funny how close you get to rewarding yourself the harder it is to accomplish your goals.

Confession: We went to Waterburger for dinner tonight because it was their 60th Anniversary and if you wore orange, you got a free hamburger. Pretty sad huh?

Cheer: I have really made headway in cleaning up my house. I took another 3 bags of clothes and shoes to Goodwill =) My goalis to get all of the clothes off of my bedroom floor (a huge, huge pile) and either give them away or find a home for them in my closet or dresser by the time school starts. That means I have to give up a lot of too lose or too tight clothes.


  1. I gave you an award...check it out. http://theskinnyoncarbs.blogspot.com/2010/08/weigh-in-and-award.html

  2. You have inspired me! I have donated 6 bags of old clothing to Goodwill myself! Thanks for helping get my butt in gear!

    I am envious that you are a teacher. I always wanted to be a teacher when I was younger. I used to teach school to my little brother and sister when we were kids. I always loved it.

    Have a great week!

  3. okay... You are not alone on the "if you wore orange, you got a free burger" thing. I look for deals like that! And i would have done it to. You have got my blood flowing about cleaning out the house. I cleaned the whole garage by myself on sunday and we can actually walk from the side door to the back door, which was blocked by an old big screen tv. I then came in my room and got ride of 4 huge trashbags of tshirts... why do i need 3xl tshirts when they are too big now? and im not young anymore where i can wear shirts with dirty sayings on them so i threw them away to. Just wanted to say thanks and i love you!


Show me some love!! Or kick my butt!!
