I was looking at my last post, and it might as well have been a whole year ago! I have been crazy busy at work getting my 3rd graders ready for the FCAT. For any non-Floridian readers, the FCAT is “the” test students take in various grade levels to determine their proficiency. For 3rd graders, the stakes are particularly high. If they don’t demonstrate mastery of the skills, they repeat third grade. And for me, their teacher, the stakes are high as well. Of course, I am doing ALL that I possibly can to help them. But I feel the pressure big time. I feel like if they fail, that I have failed them….
So anyhow, I’ve been spending extra time at work. Then, I pick up my boys from the daycare, come home and cook dinner/clean/do laundry/whatever household chores need to be done. By the time the boys are down in their beds, I’m exhausted and not really thinking about posting anything.
But I really do love blogging. It’s a great release, and I love to document my weight loss on here. If I’m doing well, it makes me feel extra super-duper proud. So here’s a little “yay me” moment… I’m down to 185.8! Woot woot! I haven’t been this low since college. I’m so excited to be dwindling dwindling. I feel like I’m finally starting to look and feel like the sexy vixen that’s been hiding under all of my layers of fat.
I’ve still got my eyes on the “grand” prize of losing as much weight as possible by my 30th birthday (late March). I know it’s a stretch to get to 160, but if I can at least get into the low 170s, I will be a very happy camper!
Good luck & God bless you all, bloggie buddies!
