Ten Things Thursday...

Ten Things Thursday, brought to us by the lovely Laura!!!   I so love, love, Thursday blogs!!

1.  Been blah all week...not sure if it is due to TOM, my dreaded talk with dad, (still have not made a time for that yet), or just general week before Spring Break blahness...but blah...

2.  Hubby has been a bit neglected the past few days, he senses my blah....he siad how about I take you on a date Thursday??  sounds good to me!!! So we are going to one of our favorite places tonight.   It is called Jackalope beautiful in the garden area.   And their happy hour is awesome, everything is half off so we go eat great food and spend like $30.00 including tip...Plus I love Hubby so it will be fun!!

3.  My first period class is new to me for the second half of the school year...I got them in Jan.  all the other periods I have had since Sept.  We have not had the best of times with each other.   They are an immature crowd...very  I say something like, "you need to come over here please"...their response.."I don't want to "come" over there, but right here"....I say randomly, "you are behaving like a goof ball"....response..."ha ha ha, she said ball"....yes Freshmen boys are idiots....everything is sexual and they turn even the smallest non related statement into SEX....I quikly remind those oh so horney boys, they talk about it so much because they haven't had it yet!!!  Well the past two days, have gone pretty well...even they came in saying let's have class like yesturday, that was fun...I actually like this class now...Of course yesturday our topic of discussion was arranged marriages and sex...I should have guessed, they would enjoy those topics.

4.  The scale and I are on a break....last week scale did not move...this week TOM has arrived and the scale is moving up everyday!!!  We shall wait until TOM has left to get back on the scale....

5.  We are working on our front yard and we planted some plants on the side yard early this week.  It looks so nice.  This weekend we will work on the grass and other plants, can't wait until it is finished!!

6.  I have been riding my bike a lot lately.  It is so beautiful this time of year in the desert, and when the breeze blows, it is just glorious to be outside, riding with the wind in your hair.   I love it!!  I am up to 6.5 miles it takes between 45-50 min.  Yesturday took a bit longer because it was only the second day of doing 6.5 miles and my uphill portion was against the wind....Dang soar legs, and riding uphill against the wind was a killer.   I almost stopped at 4.5, but said no...I did 6.5 yesturday, I can do it again no matter how soar, or how hard the resistance, gotta push and get that scale to cooperate!!! 

7.  No 1. has found a new outlet in High School.  She has been a cheerleader for the past 3 years.  However, next year she is not going to cheer, she is over it, her coach is a joke, and she is done with all of the petty cheer drama.  I don't blame her.  Hubby coaches football for a different HS anyway, and I teach a different HS so having 3 HS under one roof is 2 HS too many for Friday night football night...Anyway her new outlet is Drama!!!  Go figure!!  She did Romeo and Juliet last month she was Juliet, and loved it so now she is a fairy in the Tempest...Hubby and I are kinda glad to be done with the Cheer coach anyway, so we love this new found fun she has found.

8.  I am certain #2 is going to be a full fledge women any time now...this girl is crying at the drop of a hat.  You look at her sideways and she can't control herself.   She cried for 45 min the other day because her 4.0 went to a 3.8...mind you this only stayed a 3.8 for like a day and then went back to a 4.0 but 45 min!!!!  Made me email the teacher and everything!!!  I feel for the girl, and wrote a very freindly email to the teacher which was recieved well and she is not assured her 4.0 GPA status will not be compromised!!!  Yesturday I told her she had to wait until I got paid on Thursday (today) to get the shoes she wants....cried for 10 min because she just did!!!  Good thing even though I have been blah all week, I get this girl!!! 

9.  Today is payday, tonight is date night, tomorrow is minimum day, and next week is Spring Break!!! Thank you Jesus, I am so ready!!!

10.  I still have to post pics of buddy boys birthday celebration from Sat. they are coming!! Have a great day all...Blog land keeps me motivated, and even on those Blah days, and weeks, the blogs you all write and share are just blessings to me. xoxo Kristin

I Tested it!!!

Ok just in case any other,"I am always right, and I will prove it", People are out there I did a little test!!!

I use and love has been a fabulous tool for me and it is so easy because it is an app on my phone and my phone is with ma ALWAYS!!! I am a bit of an addict....( Hello, My name is Kristin and I am an iPhone addict)...anyway, at the end of every completed day myfitnesspal gives you a weight message..."in 5 weeks you will weigh -----" if you were to eat and workout in the same food and calorie range as that 5 weeks ago it said let's see if this is true...I counted forward 5 weeks, that is today and I should weigh 275.4...No I do not I weigh though I love myfitnesspal that portion of it is a LIAR!!! At least this time around!!;) To be fair I will experiment for another 5 weeks starting today and see if we get closer to the next targeted weight...

So any other myfitnesspal people try this yet?? Was it correct?...I am curious now!! Have a good weekend!!;)

1.  How do you feel about college?  If you have kids or siblings - will you encourage or require them to go?  How long did you go and what for? 

I believe in College.  I believe it is expensive but I also believe for myself it was a very eye opening, real, life exp. that trained and taught me to be a more open minded person, able to deal with all walks of life in a more favorable fashion, and allowed me the time I needed to transition from High School teenager to young working, responsible adult.   I do have children and yes we encourage them to go to college.  However, we have also made it clear that college is not for everyone, and if for some reason they were more inclined to go to a trade school, or to further their education on a different level then that would be acceptable as well. 
No they will not be allowed to sit around after HS and watch TV on the couch all day!! Our desire is that they go to college and learn all about the subject matter that interest them.  They are each their own person, however, and they are going to have to figure out life choices when the time comes.  

Yes, I went to college for 3.5 years as and under grad....(took summer school every year and was done, 6 mos early!!)  Then 2 more years to get my teaching credential.  I got married and had a baby so I literally took one class at a time, thus the 2 years...

2.  Pink or purple?  Coke or Pepsi?  Pen or pencil?  Cursive or printing?  Ketchup or mustard?

Depends on the day and mood
Well not suposed to have soda!!;0) but Coke
Pen and they must be a variety of color...My ADD kicks in when I have to write a lot so I need to change up the color or I get bored!!
Cursive is what I will usually write in...However, when I taught Kinder I had to print...Now that I am in HS and they have stopped teaching cursive writing in my District (a tragic shame) I still have to print or they have no idea what I have written....
Ketchup and Mustard....espeacially with corndogs!! Yum!!

3.  If you could live in any generation - which one would it be?

I am with Drazil...80s - the music alone was by far just epic!!  Madonna hair, MTV, VH1, 21 jump street, Pretty in Pink, 16 candels all of the John Hughes fills...a simpler time in life with magical memories.  Cabbage Patch kids, rolling my jeans, big clips and hoop earings.  Junior High and the first 2 years of High School were the best!!!  tricked out VW bugs in every color you could imagine, my beach cruiser...I could go on and on!!

4.  What do you sleep in?

Jammies...Usually pants or capri sets....Rarely do I sleep with just a jammie shirt I have to have bottoms...just can't do the birthday suit...we have tried and it just doesn't work for us....

5.  Repeat question - summarize your week!

My week has been a good week.   I can't complain to bad.   The scale and I are trying to work things out.
Work has gone by quickly and that is a plus... Went out to eat with my old school and Principal last night and we just died laughing it was great....My mom is coming down tonight to spend the weekend with us and hang out with the kiddo's...Hubby has had a steady sub gig all week...I will finish up my table runner tomorrow...Blog land has been great...I continue to find new friends, chat with others, laugh and cry along the way and make new memories with and because of all of you...

Ten Things Thursday...

Ten Things Thursday....thank you to the lovely Laura!!

1.  I am so thankful for all of you blogger buddies...there are still so many I have to get to know, and I am finding new bud's every week.  You all have been such a support and help with questions, concerns, ideas, food choices...everything!!!  You are all just a blessing to me and I look forward to meeting more, as this journey continues...After my head trip this week

...Hugs and Kisses to all of you xoxxoxo

2.  I have also been enjoying tracking on is nice to blog, but having friends on myfitnesspal, takes accountability to another level...I need more fitness pal friends...I can be found at "Bandedwithfavor" on please request me or leave your username in the comments and I will request you...;)

3.  Sadly, my thumb nail chipped this morning!!;(  Three weeks my gel manicure lasted me and I was going after school today get a new manicure anyway, but during 1st period, I looked down at my hand and saw a chip and sighed!!!  Almost made it w/o a chip....Other then that the polish has lasted and has been wonderful.   3 weeks is all I can push it though, the growth line is just far to high....I shall fix that this afternoon!!!

3 weeks not bad!!

4.  No.1 did not pass the permit test again!!!  The girl is all brains and no common sense...she missed 11 this time....I am thinking this is my sign from God that she need not drive, and I am very ok with that!!!  She gets one more chance on Monday, we shall see....We were going over the test and she said, I knew it was between this on and that one, and I picked the wrong one!!!  I told her next time, go with the opposite of what she thinks she might do better!!!  At least we didn't cry this time....she was just really mad and grumpy!!    

5.  I go for a check up on Sat.  We shall see what happens on the fill front...I will keep you posted on that one...

6.  In an effort to find new outlets, my Aunts have been teaching me to sew and quilt.   We have been working on this S shaped table runner.  The first one I did in my school colors Red, Black, Silver and White for my classroom and maybe, I will make one for my Principal...I am not above a little brown noseing and with the budget, if it keeps me in good graces Amen!!!  Anyway after my appt. on Saturday I am going to finish it with my Aunt....this is what it looks like now....  

It needs a back!!!

7.  Last night I was going to take the day off from working out...I like to give myself 2 days during the week to re-coup...they are not scheduled, in case I have a busier day here or there....however, it has been so beautiful after dinner Hubby and I took No.2 and No.3 to the park (we have 8 in our houseing development) we rode our bikes, and played a little bit of softball....Then we all went for a bike ride around the neighborhood.  So my day of rest turned into family fun and bike ride.  It was not a real work out but we were out playing and riding for about 1:20 minutes...I logged a little bit of it in myfitnesspal.  

8.  While making dinner last night (Skinny Chicken Parm from is fabulous check her out if you have not) I cut my thumb...Typing has been so much fun!!!  At least it was my left and not my right, then we would be in more trouble...

9.  Hubby has a sub gig all week.  Yay for a steady sub job!!!  Sadly it is our friend, his mother passed away and Hubby is filling in for him...High School Art....Hubby has no artistic ability what so ever so it should make for an interesting week!!

10.  Tomorrow is Friday and then 2 weeks until Easter Break!!!  I am ready!!!

Questions,Questions, Questions???? I am trippen

I realize all of our Dr. have various beliefs, ideas and ways of working with this band, and though they install the band, they don't use the band as we do.  I have also noticed that the scale will drop 4 pounds only to put 2 back over night and then again lose the weight 1 ounce at a time for a period of 2 weeks, when it then drops another 3-4 pounds.  Don't get me wrong....I love the weight coming off and I am losing on average 1-2 pounds a week.  I am fine with all of this but I can't help but wonder if my body thinks it is starving and this is why it will put 2 pounds back on over night and then drop the same 2 pounds again very, very, very, slowly!!! 

Now my Surgeon Dr. said to keep cal count between 800-1000 a day...No worries I have been doing that.  I try to flucuate to keep my body guessing as this has been a suggestion.  At my last appt. I did not see my surgeon Dr. I saw the other Dr. and he said when I went through my check list with him that I could bump up my cal count to 1100-1200 a day....Here is my struggle....Many of you have also been told 800-1000 and some of you have been told 1100-1200.... Should I try to bump my cal count up to 1100 and see if I get a consistant weight loss with no overnight gain?  But then I struggle with the "what if's"...What if that is too many cal and my body just stores all of it and I gain, gain, gain???  What if a couple hundred more cal is all my body really needs to regulate itself and those extra cal push me into the green zone and I am on easy street???  Is there really an easy street???  What is the green zone???  I know what it means technically, but this is what my brain inturpreted the green zone as... " as long as you keep to your meals portioned, your protein and your cal count, and you keep up with your water and workouts, your band does everything else and you just lose, lose, lose???" Now what does the green zone really mean??? And not the technical definition, I know that one...the real definition... I am not in the green zone, so is this how the green zone works???  I feel restriction but go for another check up and fill on Sat..No way can I handle 3 more cc's...I know I can't with the way I feel, but could I use 1cc, or .50cc's??? I don't want be over filled.  I could just say lets wait 2 more weeks and see how I feel then....There have been more then a few times these past 10 days when I know I drank to fast, I feel it.  You have talked about PB's and slime, I have not exp. any of that and don't want to.   I have felt presure when I eat to fast and that I think I may have had a tiny slime moment at lunch and I knew I was eating too fast...but I don't want to slime or PB everyday!!!  And if I am feeling all of this with the amount I have, do I really want to add to it??? I am thinking no...

So I am head trippen over adding cal...I want to regulate my weight loss, but I don't want to gain weight in the process...My brain tells me to add cal would add weight and that would be 2 steps back, but on the other hand....adding a little bit of cal and weight so my body can regulate may be 5 steps forward???  Do you see how crazy I have made myself over this???  I am way over analyzing everything and just out right trippen!!!  So, from you experiences....what do I do???  Obviously first I need to get over myself and then what????

Self Torture!!!

So I must be one of those who believes in self torture!!!  My calves have been killing me since I did the bleachers at school on Thursday...Yesturday they final started to ease what do I go and do???  Oh yes, I went and did the bleachers at lunch today!!!  I am insane!!! and this is what my head said I looked like...
Look at me running up and down the bleachers like a beauty queen!!!  Of course we need to dye the hair but perfect body alignment and I even added hand weights!!!  Woo Hoo!!! NOT!!!!!

This is what I looked like when I was done....
Portrait of a Mid Adult Man Exercising Photographic Print
Oh yes, that is more like it!!! LOL!!  It will kill my calves again, I know, but last time it took 15 min , this time it took 12:47 min...I could even feel a difference as I started...I don't know how often I will do this, but it is a good leg workout and it is a quick and fast work out....I don't have a ton of time to do it because after lunch (33 min) PE starts and I don't want to be out there while PE is going on NO THANK YOU!!!  but 12 min of good heart rate movement in additon to whatever else I do tonight is a bonus in my book!!!  Hubby keeps telling me I need to push myself...If I keep pushing myself and keep bringing my time on the bike or eliptical down and the distance farther then my body will keep getting stronger and the weight will continue to come off....He threatens me that he is going to hire Jillian Michaels to be my trainer because I love her, but only on TV....she would KILL ME!!!  and make me cry for sure!!!!  He says oh she would kick your A$$ and you would cry but think of how good you would feel when you were all done??  He is right, but for now, I wll stick to the self torture of the bleachers and save Jillian for when we are millionares!!!  Hope you are all having a good Monday!!!  Loads of love to you all!!

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Ten Things Thursday...

Ten Things Thursday....thank you Laura!!

1.  I have parent teacher conf. tonight from 5-8...I drive 25 miles to work and 25 miles home...I get out at 2:00....with gas prices so high and I drive a Yukon XL I am staying at school....Makes for a very lllloooonnnngggg day!!

2.  Due to my lllllooooonnnnggggg day....I will not be able to go to the gym, therefore I brought workout clothes and I walked a mile on the track and then went up and down the bleachers on both the visitor and home sides, that is 10 ups and downs....took me 15 minutes and let me tell you my quads are already screamming at me!!!  But it felt good and helped pass the time....BONUS got my workout in!!

3.  No 1. did not pass her permit test last week...this is my all brains and no common sense child, she missed 12, your allowed to miss 8...she is taking it again today with Hubby....We shall see how she does this week, haven't seen her study much!!!

4.  I had my second fill on Sat.   I am now 6cc's full in my 14 cc band.   I feel a difference and there is restriction but not as much as I would like...I go in 2 more weeks for another check up and we will see then what the next steps are....I still feel hungry at times...not always but at times, and my stomach is making soooo much noise lately...It has never made so much noise, not even on pre-op???

5.  I have decided there is no point in trying to figure out what the scale is saying to you because it makes no sense.   I weighed in at 290.9 on Sunday and then Monday without changing anything, adding anything or working out less it said I weighed 292.2???  How do I gain over night???  So I have decided my body needs a little bit extra time to realize, "Oh yeah, we are losing weight I don't have to hold on to this.   We aren't starving we are just letting go"...Let Go BODY!!!  Let Go!!

6.  I have enjoyed so many posts this week by so many different bloggers that I have felt inferrior to post myself.   There have been some great thoughts put out there and some touching stories and I just have not felt any of mine where up to par this week...I was really excited Thursday was here because I knew I could do 10 things and fit right in!!!  Some weeks are like that...

7.  My gel mainicure is going strong...I am praying for one more week out of it!!!  We are at the end of week 2 and no chips, no cracks, no breaks!!!  I love how my nails look... I have never had my own long nails, always fake ones, but this protein is awesome and my nails are beautiful!!!  I am so excited and the gel keeps them strong.   The growth line at the cuticle is getting a bit large so one more week is about all I will be able to do, but I think it will work out.

8.  I had my 2 month bandaversary on the 6th...Almost 35 pounds down...Still hoping to be below 285 by buddy boys b-day on the 22nd.   With the way my body is fighting me on letting the weight go however, we shall see...At this point I will be happy to be in the 280's!!!

9.  I will be honest and say I do get frustrated at times that the weight seems to be coming off so slowly.   I will go for a week in a half to 2 weeks and lose nothing, then bam 4 pounds down, only to have 1.5 to 2 pounds of that show back up for a couple of days...I don't get this pattern and if I was eating more then 800-1000 cal. a day I would understand it, but I don't....Maybe I am just that sensitive to carbs and should really look into my carb count...Maybe it is the sodium??  Maybe it is just my body trying to deal with everything?  Jury is still out on this one, but I hope a verdict is reached soon...

10.  Because we have to be here at school until 8:00 tonight, we have minimum day tomorrow!!!  Woo Hoo!!! I get out at 12:25 so excited!!!  I am ready for a date night with Hubby, I love him so much!!!

Have a great evening and Friday all...xoxo

New Blogger

Hi all!!! Stephanee over at Superfluous Simplicity is a re-newed blogger and is being banded on the 7th...Just 5 short days away!!! Check her out if you haven't yet!!! Added support as we all know is so helpful and supportive!!! Hope you all have a great weekend!!;)


Thanks to Drazil its BYOC time!

1.  Since I talked about psychics this week - I'm curious....if you could see one for free and you could only ask one question - what would it be?

When will Hubby get a perminant teaching job?  This RIF crap and lay-off business has gone on long enough....When and Where is this job coming available??  My mental health is shot, my bank account a joke and the world is missing out on a fabulous History teacher!!  Come on Job, we need you NOW!!!
2.  What's your favorite ice cream flavor and topping?
Well my all time fav is Quarterback Crunch from Thrifty' Grammy would take us to get scoops there all the time...Thrifty's is not even in existance anymore and who knows where Quarterback Crunch has gone???  So now I usually get cookies n cream or cookie dough, they are a tie!!!  Toppings only on vanilla hot fudge or carmel either one sometimes both with nuts.
3.  What's your preferred method of working out?  DVDs, an external gym, gym inside your home, classes?

Don't have one.   I like DVD's, I go to the gym, I will bike ride or walk outside...It all really depends on my mood and the amount of time I have.  I have not done Zumba yet, but I hear it is a hoot, so I will have to try that out.   I used to do aerobics all the time when I was in my 20's, but now the gym I go to you have to sign up for the classes they get that full so I just have not bothered...
4.  If you work outside the home or if you ever did or will in the future - do you think it's better/easier to work with men or woman?  Who do you work mostly with now?

I teach so I work with both men and women.   I have found they are equally dramatic and each come with their own set of compromises...I try to get along with everyone and be a team player.   I have found that as long as the people I am working with have the same attitude then there are very little issues.  It is the glory seeker, or the control freak that I cannot handle.  I myself am controling enough...hellllooo I run my own classroom for a do all of the people I work with...but as long as there is a respect of I am not trying to control you or the situation but work as a team it is all good...
5.  Repeat question.  Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Real life this week has been super super busy...I don't know why, it just has and I have been tierd all week.  Hubby was a bit cranky and TOM is here and those two together can make a girl crazy.. I had to tell him he needed to get over himself...the car is fixed, our bills are paid, there is food in the fridge.  I did a new thing this month.  I made a menu for the entire month on what we would eat for dinner.  I usually have left overs for lunch so it is a double far so good.  I took my menu made a grocery list, well the app on my phone did and on Sun. Hubby and I went to Costco and bought food for the entire month, minus milk and fresh veggies...we shall see if the planning saves us money and keeps us from going to the store every other day for one thing and coming home with 20.  The kids have been really good about not eating anything without asking as well in case it is needed for a menu item...they also really like knowing what we are going to have for dinner ahead of time.  If we need to switch something it is written in pencil so no biggie, but so far so good on that idea..Keeps us all eating healthy, gives me a lunch for the following day and I am not going to the store so often.
Blogging this week has been good.  I love reading all of your blogs, they are such good therapy, counseling, encouragment, truth talk and me time....It is fun to share and fun to learn about all of you...been on the blah side with my writing but have commented at least once a day on many of yours... On to a new week and a second fill tomorrow!!!

Ten Things Thursday...

Following Barbie's lead here!!!

1.  Feeling so very blah the past few days.   Not excited, not angry, not happy, just BLAH!!!  TOM will be leaving soon, maybe I will kick this funk.   Been so tierd too...Geez!!!

2.  My students have been well behaved and the lessons have been well planned out.  We planned 10 weeks as a team so we are dialed in, but there is this one kid I just want to wack him!!!  He really annoys me, I can't even squash him with a witty jab...really starting to irritate me!!!

3.  I totally feel like this 
MSN Gar Display Pictures

4.  Have not been to the gym in a few days.   I have been working out minus last night and possibly tonight we have a banquet to go to for Hubby's Basketball team...I hate feeling like I am missing out on my workouts it is the strangest thing.  Before the thought of the gym was great, but getting there rarely happened now, I have anxiety when I can't go or when there is not enough time in the day to work out in some way.

5.  Taking No.1 to DMV after work today she is getting her permit finally...Not ready for that at all...She will have to drive with Hubby, I just can't relax poor girl, what a great support I am for her...

6.  I have been feeling so very hungry lately.  I know it is because of TOM, but there are times every so often when I am just ravenous!!!  I get fill number 2 on Sat. and I am so very ready!!

7.  Our car has been out all week...Hopefully today it is ready

8.  I got a gel nail polish manicure last Thursday and my nails have not chipped, they are still growing strong and I am so excited about this!!!  I shall see how long they last, I am hoping at least 3-4 weeks cuz I can only afford the manicure 1x a month...

9.  I have 1 hour and 30 min till the end of school and I am so ready to go!!

10.  Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!
