Day 4

Alright, so I forgot to post on Friday. But, it was a good day...although I wound up with a headache by the end of the day...students are sooooooooo ready for spring break right now its not even funny. I am so glad we only have three more days this week with students, then one day without the students then I can leave that afternoon to go see my man! woohoo! motivation for working seems to have left me...but, it must come back...and it will tomorrow...I have to do LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of work tomorrow...oh well the time will pass quickly anyway.

Friday I had a great day...I had an egg on toast for breakfast, lunch was some chicken stirfry, and dinner was a nice tuna salad (just lettuce, tomatoes, onion, loose tuna and small bits of fresh apple). it was great I even got to go for a nice run.

Today, I went for a 6 mile run with a good friend of mine over the bridges downtown in our great city! It was a wonderful run. I had two pieces of toast and coffee before the run, after the run i had a weak moment while getting the brakes fixed on my car and I took my daughter to Krystals and we each got a 3 Krystal chick meal...they were soooooooooooooooo good with their delicious french fries! It had been so long since I'd had those lol but we each were able to eat two and some french fries (we agreed next time we split the fries and drink since neither of us could finish lol). Then when I got home I had a Tablespoon of Nutella (heavenly), then later after my nap we heated up the rest of our chicks and had those with some grapes. When we got to her play I had a sierra mist and popcorn, then when I got home my mom was baking a pizza. I think it's called brick oven pizza and it was spinach, mushroom, and onion...OMG it was sooooooooooo delicious! I couldn't even belive how good it was...I had a piece of that hehe hopefully there'll be some left for lunch tomorrow! :D

Anyway, my daughter is in a play, Annie. It is so cute, I can't wait to see it...for time number three...tomorrow afternoon. She *made* me go tonight so I could compare red cast to blue cast and of course I thought her cast was better (really, they were the blue cast was just above awful :-/)

Day 2

Today was much easier than yesterday. I felt a lot better than I have in a while. I made sure I wore some awesome shoes today to make me feel good! ;)

I had one cup of coffee before I left home, then I got a coffee from dunkin donuts on my way to work (<3 their coffee!).

Breakfast: another fried egg sandwich with a half a slice of havarti and on a piece of whole wheat bread.
Lunch: advocado sandwich with onions and swiss on a sandwich thin, two things of dannon yogurt, an apple, and a clementine. I also had one fun size hershey's special dark bar.
Dinner: veggie delight 6" sub from subway with water and 4 doritos (I only remember that because I was sharing them with my daughter and she said I could only have 4 the rest were hers lol)
Dessert: I had to meet my cousin to discuss her wedding plans and we met at dunkin donuts, I got a coffee with splenda and cream and I had 5 munchkins...they were so delicious!

I unfortunately ran out of time to exercise today. I was going to rush home to run and go meet my cousin all stinky like, but then I'd have wound up having the munchkins for dinner and I figured that probably wasn't a great idea.

On a side note though, I am a teacher and last week we wrapped up a unit on cyber bullying in my intensive reading class. Well, I instructed to students to put together a power point comparing and contrasting cyberbullying, the results were AMAZING! They put so much effort into them, the actual slideshows were so impressive; but, I printed off their final products and only two need revisions. :)

All in all, it was a fantastic day and I can't wait to get to tomorrow, because as of tomorrow it will be exactly one week until I get to see my hubby! (Today I am a week away from beginning my drive! YIPEE!)

Day 1

So, yesterday, after having a great eating day a friend of mine gives me a jar of Nutella. She saw it on sale and knows how much I love Nutella so she picked it up. I came home and after cooking a very healthy dinner of chicken stirfry I proceeded to eat pretty much the entire jar of nutella on my own (my daughter had 3 tablespoons). So, I felt this was my rock bottom as far as sweets go. I now know I have a problem. So, I have decided I am going to go on a journey to become healthier. Today was day one.
Breafast: fried egg sandwich with half a piece of havarti melted on it served on a half a piece of a sandwich thin with strawberries
Lunch: I had a can of progresso chicken soup with extra fiber and some oyster crackers
Snack: Airhead and strawberries
Dinner: I was invited to the above friends house for dinner and we had salad, manwich on potatoe rolls and applesauce. There were VERY tempting mini banana splits that I did NOT eat.

I also took an extra few minutes for myself and went running, I did three miles.  It was good and when I was done I wish I had done four. So, my goal tomorrow will be four miles.

My goal here isn't necessarily to lose weight but to be healthier and set goals for myself so I will never be just stagnant. Stagnant is boring and who wants to stay the same?! So, here's to change!
