Wow... it's been a rough week! Monday had some high points, but work has been brutal! Bad thing is that I've had so much to do after school that for the past two nights we have not got home until 8:15 p.m.

Yesterday I had a work-related meeting after school, and then I had to take my two 8th graders to Freshman orientation for high school. It seems unreal that they are going to high school next year! I had to go straight from work to my meeting, then straight from my meeting to the high school so no gym yesterday. That actually made me a little sad. I was over a little bit in calories (eating on the run will do that sometime) and I knew that a good workout would have helped out a little.

Today is church night, but I worked out for an hour anyway. I went directly from work, and then we left the gym and went directly to church. Right now I am WORE OUT. My leg is even swollen a little, and it hasn't done that in a while.

Tomorrow won't be much better. My son has an event at school, so it will be work --> gym --> son's school. Thankfully, I think I have NO plans for Friday, lol!

Two Three things:

1. I have to figure out a plan for not going overboard at Wednesday night church dinner. I look at the menu ahead of time, and always "plan" on eating from the salad bar, but I always end up having the entree and the dessert and feeling bad about it. Not going is not an option... my kids really look forward to it each week, and it's the only place where a family of 5 can eat for $10!

2. I looked forward to going to the gym today. I worked out for an hour and felt awesome afterwards. I feel like I am pushing myself, and I am feeling so much better. My mood has improved, too.

3. My scale at home is moving, and I really pray the damned scaled at school moves on Friday morning. Instead of the Biggest Loser at work, I am starting to feel like a big loser. I almost feel like the others look at me like I am not doing my best. Just like on the show, people assume that the biggest people should lose the most. The fact that the scale at school has shown me losing ZERO kinda sucks.

Ok... I am going to bed so that I have enough energy to get through tomorrow.
