Great Day!

Well, aside from not wanting to get out of bed this morning cause Zeke looked so warm and snuggley... The morning started out great. The sun was shining, Starbucks wasn't wrapped around the building, made it to school early.

The U of Memphis came out to talk with the 11 teachers (including me) who will be mentoring student teachers next year. So, that was interesting to see how much the program has changed since I was in the program. I am so looking forward to next year. I hope my student teacher will be as excited about it as me. When I was in school we only did 1 semester of student teaching. But starting this year, they will be in the school for the entire school year. 1st semester only Mondays and Tuesdays (other than the first week of school). Then second semester they will be there more.

That lasted about 30 mins then I was off to weigh in... This is where my day could go terribly bad or awesomely good. I will be honest, I was expecting the negative. But much to my surprise the scale showed I have lost 8 lbs since the first weigh in... EIGHT POUNDS!!! That is great!!! I am super excited. Biggest Loser last night was a very emotional 2 hours for me. Olivia is my role model for this weight loss and life change. She looks amazing and I really think that she might just win this thing!!! Back to the 8 lbs, this really gives me the push I have been needing!!!

So for our celebration dinner tonight, we are having grilled salmon, green beans, and brown rice. Oh and weight watchers cookie dough dessert... I love those things!!!


  1. Congrats on the weightloss!!! "Weigh" to go! :)

  2. What great news! Keep up the great work! That 8 lbs will be 18 lbs before you know it!

  3. Thanks Ladies! It really did help me to stay the course... :)
