    Though for once my windows are cleaned, curtains washed before Good Friday... (could it be Atkins energy??) but today is the day the whole family makes special savoury Easter bread/cakes & it gets competitive, everyone is tired basically the opposite of fun!!

    As I get older the simpler ways of my childhood become more & more attractive....
    It sounds like you had a very festive celebrations, victcy! My youngest daughter griped loudly about how we don't do anything at Easter any more...such as hide eggs, plan large meals, invite everyone over to the house, etc. It was a year ago that both she and her sister declared Easter as "a ridiculous custom". Like you, every year I age is one year more I love to make life simpler and enjoy the little things.

    Good job! Sounds like your in control!

    Apparently I'm tired and I can't hit the right buttons these days.

    Today was a good day and frustrating day.

    Good because the scale showed 227, a 7 pound loss from over 2 weeks ago, and frustrating because we interviewed four candidates for a teaching position on my team----and we have it narrowed down to 2 candidates that we just can't decide...or agree on. The principal has the final decision, but we all of us have to come to a decision and agree on one and fight for them. It's going to be a tough week.

    In the mean time....I'm feeling pretty powerful over a lot of vices. Except for coffee. I need my coffee.

    Working on week 3 of induction.

    Lisa, congrats on your loss! Keep it up!

    I've been MIA again and I don't know how the days just slip by without me even noticing. I want to post everyday but I keep passing by the computer without even seeing it. I'm working on housecleaning and moving furniture from one room to another and when I take a break, I'm too tired to do anything else.

    I hope everyone is doing good on their eating and exercising. This is the best time of year to get healthy because there's so much to do inside and out that it keeps us busy and away from the kitchen.

    Have a great weekend!

    Thank you, Nyna. It's a battle to eat healthy and live the real life. Passing by the computer is not a bad thing...but I miss reading your posts. I need to clean my house. We're hosting a bridal shower on Saturday---when a lot of my final projects are due. Gluten for punishment here, I guess.

    I think today tops the day for me as the "worst day" for awhile. I'm sucking down black coffee more than I should. Drinking water less than I should. And swearing under my breath a lot more than I know I should.

    Fire drill, not enough subs, kids talking about seeing each other in the toilet, using toilet language (me thinking about swearing but not saying it), one student threw up in the trash can in the corner of the room like a champ! Let's just say that if my boss comes to me about anything from today's events, I'm just going to direct him to the trash cans and the kids involved. 4 weeks left.

    We got this. We can do this. It's not hard. Dealing with 22 needy third graders is hard. Having deal with a fire drill and not enough subs, and kids getting in trouble or throwing up...in one day, that's hard. Let's eat healthy because we know it's worth it.

    Wow, Lisa! It sounds like you had a brutal day yesterday but I hope things are improving today. And I hope the Bridal Shower goes on without a hitch!

    I've had a very good week and am noticing my clothes getting looser so I'm happy about that. I don't weigh myself anymore and don't miss it at all. I do better without having very little fluctuation flying in my face.

    Have a great weekend.

    The season has changed here, spent yesterday swapping clothes over in my wardrobe & went for my walk in my sandals. Looking forward to a good week....the zucchini are cheap & my fridge is full of fresh veggies!

    victcy, it sounds like you're enjoying the season change as much as I am. The lilacs are blooming here and I just love them! And all the outdoor activity is helping to keep me on plan. I'm still losing and feeling like a million bucks! I'm getting way more exercise than I had been and am feeling stronger and more energetic and am loving it.

    We must all have been really busy this month as we haven't been posting!

    We have had some rainy days, not our usual May weather.... but it can't get me down as I'm actually losing again, so I am in a happy place!

    Yay for losing again, victcy! Definitely a happy place to be with the weather you're having.


    We're just getting into the high 70s and 80s here. I know I have been busy. I get caught up on the weekends.....and get "caught up" in the craziness of the end of the school year. 1 week left until summer break.

    Maybe we need a new thread for the month of June.

    Tomorrow's the last day of school. Friday's the last official day for work this school year. Youngest daughter graduated last Sunday. Oldest graduates in a couple of weeks. I am ready for a long break.

    It hasn't been easy---down right frustrating. I hid the scale until next weekend.

    I hope everyone's hanging on.
