Monday, Monday...

Went back to work today after having 2 weeks off. Boy am I tired! My school kids were pretty good. Must have still been asleep from the holiday break. I pray that it lasts for a while! hehe Actually, it was good to see them. They were excited to tell me about their Christmas break. Allison and Whitney got up pretty good this morning. I was really expecting some griping and complaining from tired worn out girls but they did well. I think their tiredness is catching up though. They are wound up and pinging off the walls as I type. You know, kinda the crazy wild way kids act when they are tired. I hope they crash pretty soon. I need some peace and quiet! :)

Our weather has been really nice the past couple of days. We had a high of about 74 today. It was super nice when I took the kids to recess. I really don't mind this weather even though it doesn't feel like winter weather. It keeps my heating bill down and that is great with me! It has actually been a bit refreshing after the super cold weather we had last week.

I have decided to cut WAY down on the Diet Cokes. I will allow myself one a day as long as I get 3 bottles of water as well. I think that is so much healthier. It will also be a great tool to use as I try to lose weight. I am following the Weight Watchers plan. I am not joining but I have the stuff from when I joined in the past and I am going to use it. Found out that there some other ladies doing it at school so that could be a good thing for me. After my run after Dixie the other day I was convinced that the extra fluff wasn't for me anymore. Oh, and I weighed myself at school today too. I think the scale must have been broken because there is no way I could weigh what it said! (Can you see the look of shock on my face?) I need a lifestyle change. Time to get healthy. I grocery shopped after school today and I think I did pretty good. I see lots of chicken, lean meat, and salads in our future. Good thing I like that kind of stuff! I'll try to update my progress on here. I really want to do well!

I think my scale is broken because it rounds your weight up to the nearest hundred LOL! Good Luck with WW, I'm trying to follow it as well - maybe we can help each other stay "OP" (on program)

Good luck with the weight loss. I am right there with you. And this year, I promise to stay at it!!!

good luck with the weight loss. Actually, when you get to the point where you cut out Diet Coke altogether, you will see a BIG and immediate weight loss--it's just suffering through the headaches that first week that kills you...
