As promised

I had a decent day today, despite how it started out.  For the life of me, I just could not fall asleep last night.  I gave it a really good try, too.  I had my alarm set on my phone for 5:30 a.m. and, when I woke up after finally falling asleep, it was light outside.  I knew it was not 5:30.  I never jumped up so fast when my phone blared 6:19 at me.  Shoooot (or some other word)!  I had to get myself put together and out the door in about half an hour.  Easy for some people, but no small feat for those of us who aren't exactly morning people.

When I got into work, I immediately went into an almost two hour meeting with a family.  Then all of our teachers came back and I had a lot I had to get done in my office.  As I talked about yesterday, I wasn't feeling terrific with all the staff back, knowing I had gained weight since this time last year.  We took our staff ID pictures as well as a group photo and I just had to get over myself.  The person taking my picture to get my ID card said I had a great smile.  That always makes you feel nice ;-)  And, truly, no one cares to the level that we do.  I seriously just need to feel what I'm feeling but then be proactive and move forward.  That's the best I can do.  If I forget where I have been, I just need to look at the pink ticker tape at the top of this page.  It's no longer at 420.  While I have gained weight back, I have still kept off 71 pounds, which is no small feat.  I don't even know where it is now since I have to weigh myself to do an update ... it may be even more.

I have a full and very busy day tomorrow, the day before our kids return to school on Wednesday, so I better head off to bed.  Maybe I'll be able to get in some exercise tomorrow after work, even if it's just a little bit.  My body really needs it, so does my soul.

Blogging will keep you focused. I keep checking up on you and am hoping you are doing well. Getting back into a routine with school, work, etc. will most likely help immensely.
