Holy moly guacamole! You can do this! We all can. We can do it! We can do it! You've gotta hear it in your head over and over and over. I'm a major stress eater... MAJOR. In my classroom, I have candy for weekly prize for table points, or if a student has an outstanding answer, uses a BIG word (for a 3rd grader), etc... So, when I'm stressed, I go for the candy. Well, several weeks ago I said, "Karen, you've got to get your life under control." Thus, I restarted my healthy living plan. It has been HARD when I'm particularly stressed to not reach into the candy box. The teachers' lounge always has some sort of goodie. Yesterday was a platter full of banana bread (mmmmm....), and the week before spring break was cookies and brownies. But, I walk by those things saying to myself, sometimes out loud mind you when I REALLY wanna grab one of those things, "I can do this. I can do this. I can do this."

If you need a lung transplant, that's serious stuff. You've GOT to do this... but first, you need to believe that you can do this. You CAN do this!

Best wishes beans! You're welcome to add me as a buddy if you'd like or email.

Every day — every section of the day — is a clean slate. Instead of thinking of paring back from overeating, think of building up on that clean slate — one small mouthful at a time. One workout at ...
