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!

Im also still around, crazy as can be for me too. Also still struggling with getting back on track, gained a few pounds back and now realizing (again) that exercise is the only way to beat this horrible monster. I will have to do something daily to keep a healthy lifestyle a reality. Biggest Loser is such an inspiration but I want to see what they eat on a daily basis! Who do you think will win? Glad to see you are back and hi to all the other gals!
