    I am at school today. Our first official day isn't until tomorrow, but we have to work one extra prep day this week. I intended to come in on Thursday, but my little guy has open house at his school and I want to take him to meet his teachers.

    I hate coming in to see the state of things. As usual, they had unplugged everything from the computer, so it took me 1//2 an hour to replug everything. I'm not even sure it is correct. We have ELMOS and several other peripherals hooked in to the computer. They also lost my desk chair but I hunted it down in a friends room.

    Our new superintendant is letting us know who is boss. He is bringing the kids in Tuesday instead of Wednesday next week and has cancelled the district wide "Welcome Back" meeting during which the award winning KHS marching band would play their field show for us. It was the highlight of each new school year.

    I did not sleep well last night and am cranky. The good news is that I have in 2 no binge days and am back into the 230's.

    Paula, I feel like our personal journal is that personal. I think it should be a place where you can put the things that you need to get out of your system in a place where (hopefully) supportive people will come in and cheer you on or hold your hand or whatever else needs done. So being able to write about your journey regarding binges on here only makes sense. However I can also see where a thread dedicated to that could be very helpful to others who have the same issues.

    Sorry about your super, I know that administrators think in their own heads they are doing the right thing, but at least in my experience, it rarely feels that way to those of us who feel the brunt of their decisions.

    p.s. happy belated birthday, sounds as though it was a lovely day.

    Chris, that is a neat link. I'll have to take a closer look when I am not exhausted.

    I've had two full days of both physical and mental hard work at school. My room is nearly decorated and I have implemented some really neat new ideas that I will talk about tomorrow. I also have a very funny shopping story that I want to share.

    Right now, I am heading to bed because I feel a binge coming on and I am really just lacking sleep.

    Proud of myself today. For the first time in months, I did not give in to a binge. I was planning it in my head for hours last night even while I was at the gym. BUT when I got home, I hung with my family for about an hour and then went to bed.

    School has been great the last two days. I have worked hard and my room looks awesome. This year I am implementing something called the "English Box". English can only be spoken in a small boxed off area of my room and only when absolutely necessary. To help my students with this I decided to create desk pockets to hold a dictionary and a few other things. This leads to my funny shopping story...

    Online, I found an idea that uses canvas work aprons for that purpose. Home Depot has them for 77 cents each. So yesterday at 7 am I was there buying 30 of them. Well, I found out that the Home Depot in the early AM is a fabulous place to pick up men. One particular good looking guy was shopping with his buddy. He looked at me and said "You're up early. Are you a contractor?" I said "No, A teacher". Then his buddy commented that we must be starting soon. Every time I ran into them after that, The first guy would attempt to keep the conversation going. It was fun and made me feel very pretty. Silly, I know.

    Have a great day everyone.

    A few years ago, my sis and I were shopping at the Home Depot in her town, and the place was swarming with guys, shopping and working, our approximate age and pretty darn good looking. She was single at the time and I told her she needed to get a part time job there! And yes, just in case, that is what I will do.

    so happy you managed to walk away from a binge. Need of sleep is a huge trigger for me, luckily doing all these veggies seems to be over riding my sleep issues for the most part. Looks like we may finally be figuring out our own personal recipes. Congrats.

    We are off to the Boston, MA area for the weekend. My BIL is turning 50. We will see most of my husband's family, so it should be fun.

    I decided last night that I will be auditioning for a new show next Thursday. It is called "Lust N' Rust" the trailer park musical. I'm not sure about my chances because there are only 3 female roles that I could play. BUT It will get me more audition experience and a male friend of mine from WW will also tryout.

    I am starting a true W30 tomorrow. I will follow the food list and will not weigh until October.
    PS Binged last night. When I am tired and frustrated/angry, it is a lethal combo.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    should you wait to start the Whole 30 till you get back from Boston? Just seems like you could work to stay primal while gone, but being so restrictive while going away to a party might be asking a bit much of yourself.

    The play sounds fun.

    I am really going to attempt W30 starting today. I will have to avoid alcohol and cake, but I really feel the need to get started. I am making NO exceptions this time. I already weighed and measured yesterday morning. For breakfast I am having coffee with CM and eggs.

    When I measured yesterday, the gravity of my situation really came home to me. Since my mother passed away in October, I have gained 30 lbs and 5 inches on my waist and hips. Scary and sad, but not impossible to turn around. I am going to make sure to eat ample fat and keep my carbs at 50 or below on top of the W30 strictures.
