almost time to go home

Well hello everybody..

sorry for not posting yesterday..I woke up and was very achey...but I drank some orange juice and I was good to thats good..don't want to get sick! Then I got home and ate chinese food (evil!!) but thats ok I had enough points to do so. I also made some banana bread which can be dangerous..

As far as today goes...been a little stressed at work these last two days that I have even gotten a headache from one of my teeth is starting to bother me..dang stress..ew..but now that it is almost time to go home...I am feeling VERY good. Tonight I'm going home to clean up the house cause I'm having a ladies night on Friday night!!! ;)

Quote of the Day:
Share your ideas, questions, successes, and failures with other teachers. You will create strong bonds with your colleagues. Both you and your students will benefit.

When I read that quote..I thought about how all of you have been wonderful teachers to me..and I love the support group here!! Thanks for keeping me going!

I need to finish up some things before I leave work..then home to clean and maybe sneak in some time for tv..but we'll see.

And I'm very proud cause I was able to drink LOTS of water these last two days..WAHOO.

Well hello everybody,

Today is flying by...I swear I didn't get enough done at work today....

Hope everybody is doing great and ready for a good week!! I got up this morning and made my lunch with lots of veggies and healthy options which makes me happy because now if I get hungry..anything I snack on will be ok to eat...I have also been sure to drink lots of water lately so hopefully that will help out!

Tonight I'm making sure I have enough points because we might go to Buffalo Wild Wings..

Smoothie - 4

String Cheese - 2

Sandwich - 4
Triscuits - 2
Laughing Cow Cheese - 1
Veggies to snack - 0

I will try to post a menu if I have time..but no promises

Have a great evening everybody!!

ready to go

Well usually sundays are my days home with john...we usually get to sleep in and make breakfast together. Sundays usually were the only day that we had all day together when we first started dating (now john has managed to get both saturdays and sundays off)..It became tradition on sundays to do nothing but sleep in, make breakfast, relax, and get some things done around the house. Well today we didn't have that..and its been a few weekends since we have gotten to do that since we have other things going on. Today we went to breakfast at my friend's house..her mom cooked since my friend's birthday is tomorrow...Amazing breakfast..i'm still stuffed from it even though I really didn't eat too much. However the stuff that I did eat wasn't the best for me..biscuits and gravy to say the least :)

I am very proud of myself though because I went shopping this evening and bought so many healthy things and I'm ready for this to be a good week. I made up baggies of veggies so they are easy for us to grab in the morning before work. This way we make sure we get the veggies we need in as a snack.

I'm very exhausted though since we went out pretty late last night celebrating my friends birthday..which I did very well on drinking even though there were a few birthday shots I took with her..but not as many as I would have done before WW. And I didn't drink beer either so I'm even closer to the 30 days without beer goal that I have.

Well off to bed so I can get some energy for this coming week and just spend some time watching some tv with my man since we really didn't have time to talk and relax together this weekend.

Good Night and good luck on another week!

can't sleep

Good morning everybody...saturday and sundays are something I look forward to because I can usually sleep in..however today that was not the case..I think I slept maybe five hours if that :( We got home really late and my stomach was bugging me so I stayed up and watched some tv...and now i'm up again just wide awake...

Anyways I totally forgot to mention yesterday that I am SO excited because when I got dressed yesterday I was able to put on a pair of jeans that I have not worn since before last summer..AMAZING!

Yesterday I also took out some of my workout videos and vitamins and decided I need to start working out and taking my vitamins..those will help a lot. I really wish there was a gym in our complex but NO and I don't have the money at the moment to join somewhere.

Well I'm a little worried about today since we are going out for a friend's this age its hard to go to a bar and not drink or to drink something that is good for you...however I am on day 19 of not having a goal is go 30 days!!

So my question to you is what do you drink that isn't going to be horrible for my points when everybody around you in slamming their beers not worried about empty calories...? I have points leftover to use today but I'm not going to give in and have a beer!!

Have a great saturday!

Welcome to my site!

Well hello to everybody...this is my first official blog post.

I will introduce myself by saying that I am just starting this weight watchers journey....with my boyfriend, John, at my side. We have been together over a year and a half and realized that since we have been together we have gained some weight. We really just both want to be healthy more then anything and why not start now. He has already lost about 10 pounds and I've lost 6 pounds. We are still very new to the program so any insight would be amazing.

Thanks to Roni for her amazing blog/site because that is the reason I wanted to start ww.

I look forward to making posts as often as I promises yet..I still want to learn how to do all of this first!! I have kept an excel sheet for all the weeks since I've started but now I try to post everything on here when I have time.

Quote of the Day: The teacher is like the candle which lights others in consuming itself. "giovanni ruffini"

Since I went to Purdue University for Elementary Education..I have a calendar on my desk at work that gives me a new quote everday about teaching..thought i'd share today's with you :)

Thanks for viewing!!
