I am still here and have not stopped since school was out. We have been enjoying basketball games and tomorrow night out high school is in the Championship game. I have been redoing my scrapbook room and will try to post pics soon. It is so clutter free!! I am weighing in next Tuesday. I think I stayed the same over Christmas so I skipped this week and am ready to start strong!

I was a bit bummed when I only lost 1 lb on today's weigh-in. Then I looked at my dates and because I have not weighed consistently on the same day, I am a bit skewed on weeks. It has only been 16 days since my first weigh-in. When I thought about it that way, I felt much better. I will be more consistent when school starts back up and the new year is here. Yeah for 1 lb!

Friday I was feeling like I was retaining a lot of fluid. I looked online to see how to get rid of this and amazing what I found out. Drink more water!! I know, they say drink your water, and I really do like water. I think sometimes we just have to come to these realizations on our own. I started my day off with a big water bottle and kept drinking all day. I have peed all day long! I do feel better tonight and will do it again tomorrow. It will be interesting to see what Tuesdays weigh-in reflects with the water consumption.

Challenges are something we all face daily. My challenges this week have been Christmas parties. I teach fifth and sixth grade gifted students and this week they each had their Christmas celebration. We ordered pizza and watched a movie. There are also the many gifts of chocolate I have received. It sits on my desk and is ever so tempting. I did eat two candy cane Oreos yesterday for 4 points. They sure were good. Today I have my meals planned out so that I can go to my staff party this evening at a Mexican restaurant. I still need to do a little research to know what I can order. Oh the challenges of the holidays. I am glad I started at the beginning of the month with some motivation to rock the holidays!
