Happy day, WARRIORS!
Wishing each of you a totally spectacular day in every way possible! Stay WARRIOR Strong!
My ISP decided to do a total upgrade of their equipment yesterday (between midnight and 6 am). So I didn't get a chance to get on like I normally do in the wee hours to come post in here...
Yeeeeeeeeha! Only 5 days of school before my 72 days off for summer break! I can't believe how quickly it went by this year...
Carb-Free Food for Thought:
“...if you CHEAT, if you start loading in carbohydrates, suddenly you’re starved. You hate yourself but you can’t stop eating. The pounds and bumps and bulges pile back. Up goes your weight, down goes your energy.”
~ Dr. Atkins A '72 pg 34
Onward and ↓ DOWNWARD, WARRIORS! We've GOT THIS!

I am in need of the following:
juice boxes/Capri Suns--we have 22 students
Jumbo Rice Krispies
Little Debbie Oatmeal cakes
Cereal Bars or Pop Tarts
I AM LIVID ON THIS EMAIL...........OMG I AM ZC FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE----I WANNA GO THRU THE ROOF!
My kid will be eating smoked sausage or link sausage and scrambled eggs on those days before!
sorry but when I SEE THIS I wanna scream so loud I am beside myself
ok off to get crap done but I had to 'tell someone' and you guys KNOW!!!! You guys get my anger and all this
I do understand your outrage!
Hey we feed our students crap here too!
Our district is on the federal free-breakfast program... so our kiddos can eat breakfast for free here no matter their socio-economic status... So lots of our students get breakfast twice, the one they eat at home and the one at school.
School's breakfast is a CARB-AGE smorgasbord... remember CARBs are cheap and most don't require refrigeration! Since this program is federally funded, this is where our tax $$$ go to help grain farmers etc... that's JMO!
Nothing we CAN do about it, Karen! Not with our government's SAD requirements plus the fact that Big Pharma, Health Care professionals and Big Food producers make billions of $$$$ each year off of us getting sicker and sicker eating all that CARB-age crap... We need a paradigm shift in all those areas, but it ain't gonna happen any time soon since our government is ran by those 3 big groups of peeps who are only in it for the profits, the HELL with people's health!
Okay, I'll get off my soap box now!
busy as a nutjob here have so much to get done. just seems all right on top of me but working on getting it all handled and done to where I am caught up!!
Sounds like you need another vacation, girlie!

YUCK! Sorry your weather is crazy!
Jo... luv that quote from Dr A. We can eat a lot of food as long as it is not carbs. I have to watch my portions but still a lot more than when I ate carbs.
Yeppers, Imma the same way, Berni! I gotta have portion control even with perfectly OP foods, but it SURE does beat the alternative when I wasn't LCing = weighing 265 lbs or more, in my case!
dear jo how was the school outing?
Weather was dicey, not really hot (mid 70s) but the wind would whip up every once in a while. We did stay out longer than we've ever done in the 17 years I've been going out there with the school... got to school with 10 mins to spare before the dismissal bell rang! No time for the kiddos to be 'bored' etc... PERFECT!

2 x WTG with staying totally OP plus hiring a personal trainer!
You'll have to share what you learn with us!
Also a NSV victory today....a summer dress I bought at least a year ago, and which "almost" fit then but was too tight to comfortably wear last year (I was hoping to get into it soon when I got it), it now fits perfectly and is almost loose! Yaay!
those kinds of NSV! Nothing better for the self-esteem then fitting into something that didn't fit before! Woot! Woot! WTG!
