Well, well, well

It's been a long road to nowhere! So it's time to get back on the fat band wagon and get to work on hijacking the skinny band wagon. Who's with me? I have been homeschooling for about 2 years now. In addition, I have been working on my Master's degree. So how's that working for me? It's not! The homeschooling was taking more time than I imagined and my own homework was suffering. So this year I'm going to attempt to send both kids to public school (ack! shutter the thought). The good news is that the teachers where both kids will be going are good. I'm also a "hands-on" mom so my children will never be the type who have low math or reading skills. The scary part will come if my daughter has to go to the middle school here next year. No one in my area likes that school - not the parents or the kids. Kind of makes me sick to think about it!

So now that the kids will start school on September 7th, I have decided that's the day I will begin my hardcore diet. What does that mean? Going to the gym 4 days a week. As a minimum, I want to get on the treadmill and do 30 minutes. That's an attainable goal. Anything else over that will be the icing on the cake. I would have said gravy but I hate gravy! I've also decided to take my blog to the next level and change the way it looks before that date. I will have recipes for low carb and low calories. I have to do something to keep myself motivated! My initial goal is to lose 10 pounds. That will just be a start. My overall goal is to lose 50 pounds. I really need it! But the 10 pound goal is just a mini-goal. Start slow and continue, right? Hope you'll work with me to get this weight off! See you back here soon!
