Thanks Lisa! I knew I could come here and share.

Definitely been a rough day. The tragedy in my state has me at a loss for words. We talked about it a lot at work. My coworkers and I took the time to pause and reflect on how devastated so many parents must be right now. I know I appreciated that.

I struggled reading the news article I just read.

My parents want to eat now. I'll check in tomorrow afternoon. I'm having some allergy testing tomorrow morning. I'm now allergic to peanuts. I'm not surprised, but really, it's the last thing on my mind.

Please, please, as they are saying on the news, hug your children tonight.

I'm here and we are ok. We are on the opposite side of the state from Newtown. We are just devastated by today's events. I don't even know where to begin about how screwed up the whole thing is. What is this world coming to? Tomorrow we have to go to a school concert and honestly I am considering dropping the costumes and candles off and going home. DD is supposed to be a reindeer for the Rudolph song and I know she would be sad if we skipped it but frankly my nerves are on edge.
Today I want to just hide under the covers and never let my kids leave the house.

I am totally in shock about the news of yesterday. AS a teacher you wonder about what they went through. I am glad to hear CC and B&B are safe. I am glad that I don't have to go to school today because I don't know if I can.

Dona, I'm sending you oodles of good thoughts, prayers and Our teachers do so much for our children every single day and you are no exception. Your school kids are older but I am sure they are just as frightened and upset as anyone else. What a horrible tragedy. I wish you peace and strength.

Hope everyone has a great Friday!
Did you get it done before the rain?

Hang in there on the eating and just take it one day at a time. You are running in a lot of directions all at once and subbing last minute. Might be time for a pjlla plan!

I'm down 6 pounds for the month. 4 to go for my challenge. I'm going to be ready to keep on moving forward in January.

Have a great day all!
I was down a bit on the scale yesterday, so obviously I didn't fall apart as badly as I thought. But I do have a plan to keep things under control this week.

Woooohoooo on down 6 pounds...in Decembeer no less! WTG!

I'm here and fine, but absolutely sick to my stomach over the horror of that event. My college roommate and friend was from Newtown, so I know the town, so as soon as the radio mentioned Newtown and Sandy Hook, my ears perked up. And my next thought was to pray for those parents.

I know the feeling. I wonder what changes I will find at my school come Monday morning.

*************

Happy Saturday all! I am at a swim meet....again! And again all day tomorrow.

Made a decent dent in my shopping yesterday, but still not done. But I feel a bit better.

As I mentioned above, I was down a bit yesterday, so I was thrilled. if I can have a good week, I should be able to go into Christmas week at the low end of my maintenance range, which will be a nice cushion.

I want to chat more, but I'm on my IPad and sitting in cramped stadium seating, sweating, so I'll BBL to chat more when I can move........P

The last 30 hours or so (I found out about the tragedy during my lunch break) have been exhausting. I am still at a loss for words. I saw a few friends today (at church) and we chatted a bit. They each work in a school in CT and I know Monday will be hard for them. I also have another friend who I called last night and she is a school psychologist in CT. I am very nervous for her. I'm sure the vertigo episodes that plagued me last night and this morning are related.

I am trying to keep busy. Last night, I did some shopping. I didn't buy much, but it gave me something to do especially since my parents had dinner plans with some friends. Allergy testing occupied an hour of my time this morning. I am negative for all the tree nuts and am happy about that. I am being encouraged to gave some additional testing to see how severe of an allergy I have to peanuts, but I'm not sure that I'll have it. The office only does it in the morning and it is very difficult to take the morning off from work, or at least it will be through January. I'll think about it. This is really still one of the last things on my mind. Even Christmas planning, shopping, etc. is a necessity, not something I'm enjoying or thinking about clearly.

I picked up some new music to add to my iPod. Some of it is Christmas music. I'm hoping that will boost my Christmas spirit. Knowing that I'm not alone is helping.

Thanks for listening.

Hello friends

I cannot believe how busy I have been! I have been lurking here to catch up on reading, but never seem to have enough time to post.

First, I love the idea for the new thread! For me, one month at a time seems like a good plan to stay focused. I fell of the wagon for a week or two. And, I mean off. And the wagon was no where in sight! I think the stress of completing my online classes mixed with a couple situations at work have me beyond stressed. So, I vowed to get back at it and started fresh this week. I already feel much better, even if I am still up a couple pounds. I am also finding it harder to fit in my exercise with DSs activities in the afternoons and DH being busier with school related things. Thankfully, he graduates in one month! But, job searching is tough. He may have to continue working in the ER and find something per diem as a respiratory therapist until he finds something full time. More stress

I spent a good deal of my day yesterday baking. I need to get going on this cookie making! I'm doing good, though. I only tried one of each kind so I could see if the were cooked properly and then I immediately froze them. They kids came in the kitchen and asked for cookies and they were already in the freezer! I got some confused looks from that one!

Today is the kids program/play at church. My cousin who lives about an hour away invited us down to watch the Steeler game and celebrate her son graduating from college this week. I really want to go, but I have sooooo much to do today. I need to catch up on laundry for the week and still have things to do for work for this week. I'm not sure what I am going to do. I could really use today to get caught up and even make more cookies, but I feel like I should visit with my family. Bah!

I really cannot image what the people in Newtown are going through. Just a senseless tragedy. As a teacher and parent, I have no words. Prayers to everyone in the nation.

I am going to try to post here more often. I definitely keeps me on track!

I am off to try to get a load of laundry done before I get ready for church. Have a great Sunday!

Jill

Thank you to Pamela for taking a week. Only one left for January!

Jill--I say go visit your family. I know it is crazy at your house, but it might be more relaxing to be around people that you love than to catch up on all the stuff.

**
I did my last really long run before the Mickey in January. It was tough. I feel great today, so I did a good job with stretching before hand and watching the pace. So that is awesome. But the weather was tough. 45 and rainy. We were supposed to only have a few passing showers but it rained on and off from mile 7 on, and continuously from mile 14 on. We wanted to go 23 miles, but only did 21 because we were freezing!

I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Pamela, I was happy to hear that you and your family are safe. Sounds like you've made good progress on your Christmas chores and will be ready to relax and enjoy soon.

CC, I'm sure the coverage in your area is overwhelming. It sounds like you did a good job keeping busy and focused on other things as well as being in touch with your friends. One day at a time.

Jill, so nice to see you! I thought of you, too, Friday. We have lots of folks who work at schools on our thread. I'm with Rose and say go have some fun -- all the tasks will be there when you return. Unless the laundry fairy pays you a visit.

I will have 4 weeks in February if anyone wants to start choosing weeks when January is full.

Rose, congratulations on finishing your last long run before the Mickey Marathon. The next time you have to run that far you will get that beautiful medal.

Just in time for this hectic last week before Christmas came a little article from sparkpeople.com called 9 Simple Tricks to Eat Less.

1. Enjoy every bite.
2. Use smaller plates, cups and bowls.
3. Pre-portion your foods.
4. Know your pitfalls.
5. Keep a food journal.
6. Use the proper plate method (ratio fruits/veggies/protein/carbs).
7. Pack in the protein.
8. Doggy bag it.
9. Eat breakfast.


Here is the link to the whole article that gives a lot of action tips if you are interested. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/...es.asp?id=1386

I'm thinking that I will be able to put some of these ideas to use this week!

Have a great day all!

Hey friends! Here at swim meet at UNH today. Missed her first event because they changed the start time without any warning...think they are worried about impending storm.

Did some online shopping this morning, so I am nearly done! Stupidly though, I missed the opportunity for earning extra air miles by accidentally using the wrong credit card. I was able to cancel one order and will reorder tonight with the air miles card, but probably SOL with the other two orders. Head cold/sore throat making me a bit foggy so I'll blame it on that.

Didn't make the best breakfast choice today (sugary baked oatmeal) but I am determined to not let it lead to a bad eating day. I have healthy lunch and snacks and drink packed and with me today. the points in the oatmeal are pretty high, as is the carb count, so I will have to be careful the rest of the day...but with just one more weigh-in before Christmas, I am determined to be down a bit more this week and end the year on a good number.

Gotta go watch a swim...I'll BBL to chat more.......P

I'm back! Three events down, not sure how many more to go.

Had a last minute gift idea for DD, so I will be stopping at the craft store on my way home if it isn't snowing. Hasn't started yet, thank goodness.

I know I should get up and take a brisk walk instead of sitting here, but so not feeling it today. not sure if I will make it for a run tomorrow either. Coughing and running...not a good combo.

Gonna go talk with DD now.......P
