It's Friday!

I am so so glad it's Friday! The last three weeks have been crazy hectic! While I am glad that I am venturing back to school for another degree-one that I will enjoy I might add. It is really tough to go back. I have just lost that school momentum. Study groups and group projects are just not as fun as they were the first time! Plus, everybody is like 8 years younger than I am. Don't get me wrong, I am plucking along, and I will make it! This is what I want to do, and I am gonna stick it out! But, boy will I will be glad when December of 2010 gets here!!

On another note, some know that I have been doing weight watchers since January. I have had really good results! I have lost about 15 pounds, which I think is great! Now, I gotta tone it up! I have stepped up the exercise this week! I have gotten on the treadmill 5 days this week and did weights and abs 3 days! That is really good for such a lazy girl as me! You gals that run 5 miles a day! More power to you! Maybe one day I will get there! But for today, I am proud of my treadmill work! Weight Watchers took away 4 of my points this week. Apparently they do that when you lose weight....what a bummer! It has been tough! Who knew 4 little points would make such a big dif! Score 2 for reasons to get on that treadmill though! You get a point for 30 minutes! Yesterday, I ate a banana and orange juice for breakfast. When I looked up my points, imagine my horror when I realized that cost me 4 POINTS! That's right you read it right 4 of my 20 points! I won't be making that mistake again! From now on, no more fruit juice for me! Water it is!

However, orange juice brings me to my last point. Good ole Vitamin C! I think I need it. Since I have been going to the kindergarten everyday, I have gotten sick 3 times this semester. The current ailment is PINK EYE...yea I know gross, right! I think it's from the kids....really I do. I love those little creatures, but I gotten tighten up the old immune system if I am planning on teaching! Anybody got any tips? I am not a big fan of the multi vitamin....not sure why, but I really have an aversion to taking those big monster pills. A girl told me yesterday that Air born is good. Hmmm....maybe I will try it. I know one thing though, I am not wasting a fifth of my daily weight watchers points on some OJ for the vitamin C. I will skip down to GNC and get some tablets!

Peace Out bloggers! I am headed to Pickwick for a fishing and boating weekend with the boyfriend and the puppy! The weather is supposed to be great! I need a little break!

Congratulations on your weight loss! Mike and I joined a gym after moving to TN and hitting our highest weight. We've lost about 10 pounds each and have hit that plateau. It's so rough to lose these next 5-10 pounds. I'm so excited for you. Keep up the good work!!

Congrats girl on the new skinny you! When I taught, I had two sets of staplers and tape and stuff. The kids used one set and not the other. I also sprayed doorknobs and surfaces with lysol. After awhile you get immune to student germs. Good luck!
