What a summer!!!

I know I haven't been around much this summer but I wanted to let you know that I have still thought about weight loss everyday.

Although I have drank soda and didn't walk my dogs everyday. I still made an effort to exercise my body and choose good foods.

I only gained 3 pounds this summer which I really think I could consider it close to maintaining. But as my last full week of summer vacation approaches I am thinking about this fall.

At this time last year I weighed almost 30 lbs more. I started the school with 3 things that really fit comfortably. This year I have more close that fit but I stil want to get into clothes that are smaller. I am still roughly a size 18/20. I would love to be a 16 by Christmas.

I look back at my life and see times that I've been able to lose weight or gain weight the most and it's always in the fall.

This year I am going to keep up my healthy habits and make this the lost losing fall ever!!!

Week two of summer

It's been a great week!!! I've lost 4lbs this summer so far! I have walked my dogs everyday! Totaling 275 minutes this week! Over 10 hours total this summer!!! I went to zumba twice this week and a kickboxing class. I feel good. Next week I start nannying. It's something I have done for several summers and I love my girl I get to hang out with. I am looking forward to spending time with her and working out more. It's going to be a great summer!

New Beginnings!

So some of the reasons that I have been MIA is because I have been interviewing for another job!

I have applied, interviewed and 2nd interviewed for a position closer to my house. In a great school district. It was a pay cut and a very hard decision to leave my dearest friends and family at my current school but it was well worth it.

I spent last weekend praying and deliberating the pros and cons of this move.

My current school is urban and low income and comes with a lot of struggles but it also comes with so many benefits and a feeling at the end of the day that I  have changed lives and impacted the future.

I love my current school. I love my best friends that I teach with and hang out with everyday.

But they are all leaving too. My bestie is moving to Tulsa Oklahoma with her husband and two of my other besties are leaving one because they did not ask her back (which made me so mad, she is the best teacher and they fired her for personality reasons because they just did not like her, she had great relationships with the kids and she also had great test scores, which makes me mad but is a reason that they keep or release teachers.)
the other teacher I love is leaving because in this profession you have to be surrounded by amazing people that you can count on and rely on and with all of us leaving, its too hard to stay.

The school that I am moving to is brand new. It is gorgeous! I am moving grades I am moving to 8th grade but I am very excited about it because I am tired of babying 6th graders. Also the team that I am moving on is awesome. I really like everyone I ahve met and I am excited about getting settled into a home school.

This new school is closer to home and a block away from where I want to take my kids (when I have them)

 Although this was a rough decision. I think it was what is best for my family and my future.

Also 4 more days of school left!

I am still here

Hey guys I wanted to let you know that I am still here.

I have not been as faithful with my food tracking but I am maintaining my current 20 lb weight loss. I am still going to zumba and going for walks with my puppies.

Sorry life has been crazy but I am still on this journey. I am still here with all of you!

Today is an absolutely beautiful day. It's gorgeous outside.

But something's are going on with my family... Health problems, depression, alcohol abuse, it's really hard not to take those things on. I want to but I know I need to set boundaries.

I just need to let everyone know I feel terrible. It's all I can think about. I am asking for prayer and I am giving it to God.

Wednesday weigh in...Oh yeah its good!!!

 Yep that is 20 pounds! I have lost 20 lbs!! gone forever! Gone for good! I think that is great because last week I was up 3 so that meant I lost 4lbs since last week.

I ditched the soda. Started counting everything and started lifting weights. I am hoping for a bigger loss next week! This is usually how I work.

I really want to be -25 lbs in a month! That is my 28th birthday! I would love to hit it by then! But I know it will take some dedication! But I think I have it!
