Excuses, excuses

I haven't worked out much in the last few weeks and my eating has been completely out of control. It's like I have no self control at all. If it's in front of me within driving distance, I eat it. I could list the things I've eaten over the last few days and it would make you sick - seriously!!! And I've had all kinds of excuses. For not working out; I'm really busy, I have a test to write, I'm tired, it's cold, I'll do it later, tomorrow, next week. I swear, I have so many excuses it is not funny. As for the eating, yeah that was a joke. At school there have been a lot of goodies. A. Lot. Up until this week I've indulged a time or two but managed to keep it under control. This week was finals and if they were using my room for a test I couldn't be in there. So I went to the faculty room. Where the goodies were. And I sat and ate. And ate. And ate. My excuse? I didn't have breakfast, lunch, dinner a week ago, whatever. It…

...please where can I buy a unicorn?

That was a comment I received today. I know things are going really well for me right now but even I don't know where you can buy a unicorn.

Today was the last day at school. The student's had their final final this morning, then we had parties in the homerooms, and we ended the students day with a senior class play. It was fun. Then came our Christmas party. Even though I work for a private school they know how to throw a party. We had a nice catered lunch with beer, games for really cool prizes, and a bonus. Woo Hoo!!! I now have more money then I anticipated. Very cool. Maybe I'll use the bonus to buy a water softener for the new house. Sounds like fun doesn't it??

Tomorrow it all begins. I am going to lose 10 lbs over this break and it all begins tomorrow. Tonight however I rest.

Just a quick update

It's the final week of school and things are crazy.  Today is my classes final then all that's left is grading and I'm done.  Tomorrow is the last day of school and our Christmas party.  That will be fun but I'll be glad when it's over. The final couple of weeks here have been so crazy with me finishing up the class I was taking and the classes I'm teaching I've just been snowed under. Plus add buying the house and all that entails on top  of it and yikes!!!  I haven't had a moment to breath.  So now that breathing room is in sight I have to get serious.  I'll be home for the next 3 weeks packing, cleaning and preparing for next semester and the move.  So here's my plan.  I'm going to work out twice every day,  weights in the morning, running in the afternoon - or vice versa if I really feel like running in the morning.  I'm going to eat good, I'll be home and making all my own food, there is no reason to eat garbage.  Plan for next …

Since this is a health and fitness blog let's talk about your teeth. I have terrible teeth. They are all crooked and have caused me lots of problems over the years. The good news is they are really, really strong. So if I can keep them clean inspite of their screwed up shapes they should last a long time. Well, except for that grinding teeth and cracking them issue but let's ignore that for now. Because of my messed up teeth I'm kind of a fanatic about keeping them clean. I brush and floss twice a day and I use toothpicks after I eat anything. I am always trying the latest toothbrush or toothpaste in an effort to extend the life of my teeth. So when I was asked to try the DenTek complete clean floss I …
