Disney. Might be a good place to bring the kids, but it’s a miserable place to hold an academic conference.
Last week I was trapped on one of Disney’s less-than-magical resorts from Wednesday-Saturday. No transportation off the compound, bus transportation from my hotel to the conference hotel, access to 3 snack bars, one casual cafeteria-styled restaurant and one sit-down restaurant. Miserable & expensive food.
But I’m back. Been prepping my winter online class all day. Fall classes aren’t over, of course, but I’ve got some downtime while my students finish up their end-of-the-semester work, so no grading for me yet. Anyway, it’s the perfect day to sit inside & plan a class.
I’m also making other plans for this fat, depressingly out of shape body of mine. First, to walk every day & build up my stamina. Second, to record all my food on “fatsecret” every night on the I-Pad & record my calories/fat here. Third, to power up this plan to the point where I can achieve at least a 4-pound loss a month. I figure I need to lose 60 pounds at this point & at 4 pounds a month, that’s 15 months. So…welcome to bigprof’s 15-month challenge. Just 3500 calories burned or not eaten a week & I’m there.
Hope it goes well. Hope it leads to bigger efforts.
Hope all is well with you chicks too!
