I have lost 2 more pounds!!!  I am so excited.  I got a few more to go but it has been a great journey.  It hasn't been that hard and I am even liking exercise more.  I can even tell my endurance has gone up.

A New Journey

After hitting bottom (sort of) I decided to do something about it.  I have been embarking on a journey of weight loss and healthy eating.  On July 7th I started the 21 Day Fix program.  I am doing well on it.  I have been exercising everyday and controlling my food portions.  I have lost 5 pounds and I feel so much better.

I probably couldn't have done this without the support of my health coach Becky.  She really helped me get my mind in the right place to be able to start this.

So here's to changing my lifestyle!

I Am Accomplishing

Being a school teacher I have time each year where I don't work. It is really nice because after being "on stage" for 9 months wears you out.  Not that I am complaining but it does take a lot of energy to teach 1st graders something.

Anyway, I have about 2 and half months where I really don't have to do anything,  However, I do choose to accomplish something.  I can't just sit.  So, so far I have visited my mother, helped at work with some things for the new year and have started cleaning my house.  I have cleaned Daniel's room, laundry room, and guest bath.  Today I am working on the master bathroom. (notice I am not there right now)  Tom has helped me too.  Yay.

Later on in my vacation, I am planning on doing some lesson planning so the start of school will be a little easier to begin.  It is better to have things ready that to just go in cold turkey.

That is what I am accomplishing.  What are you accomplishing this summer?

Maya Rose Above

This is my tribute to a great woman, Maya Angelou. She was a great woman who rose above and shared her great wisdom with all of us.

One Very Proud Aunt

This is my wonderful nephew-in-law (is there such a thing?) Andrew. He graduated from McGeorge School of Law on Saturday May 17. It was a great graduation and totally renewed my faith in lawyers. The graduates were told to help and be kind and turn hate into love. It was all very uplifting. Now we just need to pray and cross our fingers that he passes the BAR examine in July. Go Andrew.
