Congrats, Tyra. I've been staying away from the boards a bit--just way too busy with school starting up. I've been working 14-hour days, plus part of the weekends. I've fallen off the wagon a bit this week--not because of cravings, but convenience. We had pizza--twice. However, we did get Pizza Hut's thin crust, and just got a medium. Still, I felt really, really guilty. Then we went to In 'n' Out yesterday. Bad, bad, bad. (No fries, though.)
At this point, I'm down about another pound, and there's been a tiny bit of change in inches. At least I haven't started to gain! I'm just tired and fed up with myself that I don't seem to be able to harness this job into one where I can have a life. I've been grading papers all day, and still haven't made more than a half-way dent in the stack. Right now, I'm revamping my plans for the next two weeks, as I'm going to have to take three days off (one for a district professional responsibility, and two for my daughter's shoulder surgery) the 9th through the 11th. I had planned to be introducing new material that week, so I've got to move everything around.
Tomorrow is going to be just a "me and DH" day, possibly with a little visit with DGD. My commitment to myself this coming week is to tighten up to a near-induction eating plan again, although I'm not really feeling any bad effects from the few extra carbs I've had. I'd just like to accelerate the weight loss. I think I'll excuse myself from working out until next weekend. I'm just physically worn out from being back at school and on my feet all day. I have 7th graders this year, and I had no idea they would be so unable to function if I wasn't standing at every individual's desk every second of every class period. I need to be cloned: an eye, a mouth, and an ear--35 times.
So, if I don't "chat" with you ladies much in the next few weeks, it doesn't mean I'm not still out here, trying my best to hang in there through this crazy life of mine!
If this is the worst thing that happens all year, I think I can deal with it!
