I had the day off. What do I do?


Double chocolate protein biscotti.


So if I were to have written this last week, a different theme would have popped out. Obedience.

This week...disobedience.

If it haven't said so before, I am in weight watchers and last week was really good. There was a reason for that.

This week...not so much.

Nonetheless (one of my favorite words - nevertheless and specificity are two others) tomorrow is a new day.

I will keep tracking. Watch my abundance when it comes to snacking. Pay attention to when I am hungry. Drink water. Be honest.

I came home after my meeting and read a chapter in Made to Crave. God is so good. He always feeds me truth when I need it.

Some thoughts from the book - I get tired of sacrificing and my self effort wears thin. Check and check. Food will not make me feel emotionally better. I need to tattoo that one on.

Your mercies are new each day. Thank you!!!

Super Sad...

I'm jealous. 

Jealous of the crippling blizzard that The Weather Channel is talking about.

I want snow.

I want snow that shuts me in my home.

I want a day where I can sit on the couch all day and read...simply because I can't go anywhere else.

How sad is that?

Organizing Again...

What I was able to purge...

The folders I use the most

I redid the labels and coordinated all of the folders now.  Loving it!

Work time!

What do you do when you are an early bird? 

You miss the two hour delay phone call and end up working in your classroom for 3 hours.

Good times! 

On the bright side, I accomplished quite a bit at school and was able to enjoy LOTS of peace and quiet since most people didn't show for another two hours.

I did it!

Although, I hate celebrating it, because I remember hearing others celebrate their losses and me being upset with the lack of mine. 

I wanted to lose another 1.4 to get my ten pound sticker and earn a massage.  I did...and a little more.  The exact number is not needed, but I made it! 

Which brings me to my thought.  I need to look only at me!  I feel God keeps bringing this lesson back to me.  There was a lady last night who lost 6.6.  The comparison fact popped into my head and I disregarded the importance of my number.  I obviously didn't lose that and I felt my number wasn't that great.

"Cathy, she's fighting a different battle."

A gentle reminder and a bold statement.  I can stand firm in my celebration and celebrate hers too.

Where is the balance? I am trying to keep my conversation of losing weight and doing the weight watcher program to myself and my close friends who can encourage me along the way.

At one time in my weight loss journey, I was quite obsessed. I was consumed.

This round is different. I am thinking the points in my head but it doesn't change everything like it used to.

However, I do want to put it out there...because accountability is good. I want to lose 1.4 pounds (and sooner than later). It's when I will treat myself with a non-food reward...a massage!!! There's an amazing woman from my church who is cheaper than you'd think and is amazing!!!
