Musings, updates and other random things.

Well, I realized that it has been over a week since I last updated, so I figured it was time. 
 
I so have a love/hate relationship with this time of the year.  Obviously I am thrilled that the sun is shining and the weather is warm, and the end of the school year is near, but as a teacher, this is such a crazy time of the year.  Within the next month I have a dance this Friday night, I am leaving on Tuesday for a three-day trip to B.oston with my S.tudent Government kids.  Then two weeks later, I am one of the co-organizers of an all-school trip to a local amusement park ( at night), and I have the 8th grade dinner dance- which is like a prom.  And yes, I am literally the person running this- this thing is more work than my wedding.  And finally, we cap it off with my final exam I have to give and grade and graduation. 
God, that made me tired just writing it.   I am trying my very best not to get too overwhelmed. 

Now, on to some updates.  As of last Friday, my beta was down to 560, which is great.  I have to go back tomorrow afternoon for another check.

  In other good news... I am down 3 more pounds!  This is for a grand total of 6 pounds in 2 weeks!  I am so excited.  I have not made it back to the gym yet, but I have been walking 2 miles everyday since last Wednesday. The physical activity and having some success with my diet has made such a huge difference mentally.  I just feels so nice to have something positive to focus on for once.  

So for now... I will continue to quell those nagging thoughts about when we are going to cycle again, and I am just going to focus on moving forward towards positivity.

You are doing really well, and I suppose with all the running around you'll have to do even after the school is finished you could be a size 0 in no time! :o) Love, Fran
