Missing in Action

Teaching doesn’t leave a lot if time to do much. It’s been an interesting ride so far.

Getting through the first unit has had it’s ups and downs but it’s ok. I’m getting myself more than ready for the next unit which is my unit for the internship. This means that this work with be graded and will determine my licensure.


So I’m spending my time really getting into the Revolution of America. Let’s go Benjamin Franklin. Meet me at the bar Thomas Jefferson. Let’s dance Patrick Henry.

Let’s do this.

EatSmart Bathroom Scale


Hey All

I’ve been asked to review an EatSmart Bathroom Scale by the company, and when I was approached I was super excited, because you know how much I love weighing myself periodically (read, everyday) to check progress (or recently the lack thereof).

When it came in the mail I was so excited. I took it right up stairs and set it in the bathroom. Not only was it really pretty and goes great with my bathroom, but it was so easy to just set up.

I put the two AAA batteries inside and then stepped on it once to calibrate, and then once more to weigh in.

Although I need to work on the actual number itself, the scale was accurate to a T!

I checked it by weighing myself, and then weighing myself with a 5 pound bag of flour. It was 5 pounds exactly more with the bag.

It fits nicely under my towel rack so it stays out of the way when not in use, and it’s not clunky at all. It weighs very little and the glass top makes it look streamlined and modern.

I’m very happy with it.

Marine Corps Marathon Training – Week 12

12/18 week

Monday – walking
Tuesday – 3 miles running
Wednesday – 3 miles running
Thursday – rest
Friday – rest
Saturday – walking food tour
Sunday – Navy/ Air Force half marathon

My week was ruined for training because of an ankle/foot injury. Hoping that it’s getting better, but it’s hard to tell since I’m still sore from the race.

My weight loss is still a huge struggle because I’m still making poor choices, but today is Monday and I’m determined to make good decisions today.

Food is not going to control me, while I’ve let it for so long.

Since 2011 I’ve gained back all the weight I lost originally.

It’s sad, annoying, whatever. But if I continue to look at that as my failure I’ll never move forward.

Weigh in is Wednesday, I would love to maintain from last week, so that is my goal.

My goal for the rest of September is to lose weight, that’s it.

I’m going to be better.

Help if you can, to keep me accountable.

Racing Queen





It was the Navy / Air Force Half Marathon.

Though it was my slowest race ever, it was also the most mentally challenging.

I started.
I ran it.
I finished.

I win.
