Link to swap

Here's a link to the South Beach swap over on SCS- I hope some of you can join me!

Still not going all that great but I'm looking ahead to the end of this week when things should be better after the weekend.

Yes, I'm still Around

I know it doesn't seem like I am- things have been really crazy and not all that great. Work has been better this week. I definitely needed the Thanksgiving vacation and I did a lot of soul-searching over break and realize that I can't expect my students to change but I can be the one to change. I am reprioritizing things within the next week. I am being observed tomorrow so I have been focusing on that tonight and getting ready for that but I do know that I am making myself leave work by 4:00 until I start tutoring (which will be soon). I have yet to use the elliptical and I would use it in the morning BUT I already get up at 5:00 and I don't know that I could get up much earlier. So, I'll have to adjust for that. I also have gained some of my weight back and so that's another reason I need to adjust. Two big thins have been happening that have made me realize the importance of reaching my goal and getting moving. My mom has to check her sugar everyday to keep track of it and I know that I am predisposed to diabetes so I need to change that but you know- it's hard to change a lifetime of bad habits. The second thing- I have been watching The Biggest Loser this season and it's been eye-opening and an inspiration- here these people have given up over 3 months with their families to change their lives- I don't want to get to that point- I need to make that change NOW! So, here we go again. If anyone is interested- I'm hosting a swap on SCS for South Beach recipes. If anyone is signing up let me know and I'll get you the link so you can sign up. I would love to have you! Thanks for the encouragement and I want to encourage everyone else out there not to give up!

I am still here!

There has been a ton of stuff going on and I'm not doing well on my goals. I haven't kept track of anything including my steps in about two weeks. I know that I need to get back on the ball but I'm really disheartened with my job right now and have no energy for anything other than that. I have put off doing anything related to my job all weekend. I leave for church in about an hour so I will be grading papers when I returne and then I need to sit down and figure out a plan because I know that I can't keep going on like this. I know my weight and lack of exercise as well as lack of motivation is not helping me at all in the fight for the prize. All that to say, I'm still here and will return to this faithfully this week!
