My creativity is running low, today, hence the lame post title. I am heading into my classroom, again, to try to tackle the bulletin boards some more. Hopefully, I can make some more headway! It is looking pretty good, if I do say.
Just finished leftover eggplant parmigiana for lunch and it was delicious. It was a 'skinny' recipe, so it is a lot healthier than the traditional recipe!
On that note - I have lost 3 lbs! That is halfway to my goal of 6 lbs! I may up it to 7lbs, though, since my shopping trip has been delayed another week. I am going on August 18th for my school shopping trip! We have to wait for Thomas to sell a car before I can take the money and run! LOL. I cannot wait for that first paycheck I will receive!!!!!
I have been drinking lots of green tea and eating a grapefruit everyday, along with watching what I eat more closely. I have also cut out almost every drink other than water and green tea. I love juice, but the sugar content is terrible!
Sorry for such a short post, but I need to get dressed to head to town. After I work in my room, I have to attend a contract meeting. I am not sure if I am eligible to vote, yet, but I do want to know what the new contract entails! :)

"Healthy is the New Skinny," RIght?

Exercise and Diet. Two things which I do not enjoy, that is, until I see results. Then, I am all about it!!! :)
This past year, I have tried to be more careful about what I eat and it has paid off! I am exactly 10 pounds lighter than I was at this time last year! No, I am not going to tell you what I weigh, but I will say that it is still not quite where I want to be. So, my new plan is to finish off those last few, pesky pounds before school starts. The goal - 6 pounds in 6 weeks. I feel that this is a healthy goal and within reach!
I have always despised diet and exercise plans because they were never quite what I wanted, so I made up my own, today! :) I printed off a blank calender page and dated for the next six weeks.Each week has a goal weight and a daily exercise routine. I am wanting to focus on getting more fit and not just losing pounds by dieting. So....
The diet routine is still a work in progress...Last year, I was able to cut out all sugary drinks and (most) alcoholic drinks and that accounted for over half of the ten pounds lost. Now, that I do not have that 'quick fix', it will be a bit more difficult. We rarely eat out for dinner, and I do not keep junk food around the house. I believe my overall goal will be to include more fruits and veggies in my diet and drink more water.
Well, that was probably more than you want to know and you are most likely bored to tears. LOL. Hopefully, recording this goal will help me stick to it!
I will let you know how it goes.....
