Keep Calm and Enjoy in Moderation

Christmas is only 8 days away!  Holy Cannoli!  I love this time of year.  My tree is finally decorated.  The decorations are out.  The cards are bought…not sent but purchased.  Christmas really is a great time of year! ‘Tis the Season for baking, giving, and eating.  Being a teacher, there are LOTS of goodies around […]

Turn Your “Can” Into “Will”

If you want to accomplish anything in life

I am struggling. It is the same vicious cycle. I will have a conversation with myself in the mornings (usually when I am in the shower) and talk about how good I am going to do that day. I am going to make good choices and track, track, track. I give myself this big ole’ […]

What Is Your Why? – Medifast Weekly Weigh In

When you feel like quitting, think about why you started

Hey all, my name is Katherine. Do you remember me? Haha. Just kidding. It has been a few weeks with a lot going on and I haven’t been able to hop on to write a post. I can’t believe how close to the holidays we are getting. I am in the process of putting up […]

Sunshine and Roses – Weekly Weigh In

Weight Watchers Weekly Weigh In November 11

I sure wish I could tell you that my life lately has been all sunshine and roses.  I can’t. I wish I could tell you that I have made great choices and am on the road back to health again.  I can’t. I sure wish I could tell you that I have been back to […]

Happy Fall Ya’ll!

Jen and Jason at Burt's Pumpkin Farm

Today is the first official day of fall.  I was going to put this post up at 4:44 pm when fall officially hit but SHOCKER – I was too busy!  Between grading endless mounds of papers, hours of lesson plans and meal prep for the week, it just didn’t happen. But, I am here now […]

Get in the Game – Weekly Weigh In

Weight Watchers Weekly Weigh In June 28

I went to weigh in on Friday. I didn’t really want to. My scale at home showed I had gained three pounds on vacation and I wasn’t thrilled about weighing in at Weight Watchers. But…I did it anyway. Accountability people.  Here are the dirty deets… I gained. Shocker. I ate some not so great things […]

Eat Breakfast – Weekly Weigh In

Weight Watchers Weekly Weigh In June 7 2013

I went to Weight Watchers on Friday to weigh in.  I hadn’t weighed all week.  I also didn’t eat Paleo last week and had some ice cream, oh, and brownies.  So…here is what I got: Gained 1.6.  Shocking..not really.  That’s what happens when I take a week “off.”  I still went to Crossfit four times […]

My “I Want” List – Medifast Weekly Weigh In

Plan Big. If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.

Well, last week didn’t go so well. I wish that I could do this eating plan perfectly for you all and get to my goal in a year like some people on the Medifast boards do, but apparently I am more human than they are. This past week I was up 2 pounds. I have […]

When writing the story of your life, don't let anyone else hold the pen.

Hovering:  A verb.  It means to “Remain poised in one place, typically with slight but undirected movement.” I am hovering. I have been hovering for a while and I need someone/something to come get me out of this “hovering” position. Unfortunately, I am in charge of my own aircraft.  I am the pilot. I cannot […]
