may the odds be ever in your favor.

Song of the Day:  Sammy Adams - Driving Me Crazy

I took a break from blogging because I was taking Psychology of Childhood as an online class for the last three weeks.  Any chance I had to sit at the computer was spent on school work.  And I'm happy to report that unless I get a D on my paper, I have an A in the class :)  The professor even complimented me on my responses and understanding of the material, and she's the chair of my department, so she's a good person to impress!  

Even though I haven't been posting I have been doing a weekly weigh-in.  The numbers are posted on the side of my page.  It was going pretty well, then this last week I was up 1.2 lbs.  I made a lot of bad food choices that weekend, so I'm really not surprised.  Unfortunately I haven't made the best food choices this week either.  

I am kind of on the Nutrisystem diet.  I ordered the food, and it's good, but Kyle's not traveling so it's not really practical.  And with school starting in two weeks, and my very small lunch break, I can't really make food.  It was obviously working based on my weight loss, and I wasn't even able to really work out besides taking the kids on some walks.  I can tell that I've definitely lost inches though.  Instead of ordering the food again I found their cookbook on Amazon for $5 and will pair those dinners with Cooking Light dinners.  On Wednesday I made the family favorite Chicken and Lemon Leek Linguine.  *sigh* It is so amazing!!  

I'm taking a ballet class this semester, and I'm a little nervous about it.  I'm not nervous about the actual class, more about how I look and comparing myself to the other students.  I'm taking this class because I will have 119 credits after fulfilling my requirements, I really do enjoy dancing, and I'm hoping ballet will help improve my core, which is non existent after two kids in less than two years.

I also just sent a professor my preferences for my field training posting!  Hopefully I'll hear back from her soon because I'm really excited to find out where I'll be spending the semester!  Two week break, then back to school!

And, the Hunger Games comes out tomorrow!  I haven't seen the movie yet because we really don't get out to see movies, so I think I might reread the book this afternoon!!
