My week has been very busy, but that's good. :) The eating has been okay, but the water is horrible. Hmm.... I haven't been getting it in at school like I thought I would. Teaching PE I'm not at a desk where my water is sitting in front of me most of the day. I'm going to have to make myself remember to drink it. I have been getting my exercise in and that is good.

I want to share a great quote I came across last week on Run the Planet under their beginners section. Since my weight loss journey is a much slower one than some I took great encouragement in this thought.

"Improvement is defined as being closer to where you want to be than you are right now."

I am closer to where I want to be than I was a year ago and even a few months ago, so I guess I've shown some improvement. I will continue to strive to see more improvement in my health and fitness as the days and weeks go on.

Have a great day everyone!


  1. Glad to hear that you are in the improvement stage :-) It is always a good one to be in!!! I hope you have a wonderful day!

  2. I learned something new: you teach P.E.! I admire teachers, and that seems like a challenging subject ...all those kids hyper and jumping around. What age is your class? You must be a very patient person.

    I like the quote. My quote for most things nowadays is, "It's better than before." I can be a perfectionist and have had to let go of that for all areas of my life because it would freeze me...I wouldn't even try if I didn't think I could do it perfectly. That includes fitness.

    And...the slower it comes off, the longer it stays off.

  3. love the quote, puts things into perspective doesn't it.

    i struggle with water too, but find if I force myself to have some right when i get up before I'm "allowed" to have my first cup of coffee, it keeps me going for the day and before I know it i'm done!

  4. Hi, Leah! I'm passing along the "Happy 101 Award" to you. You don't have to do all the stuff that goes with it, just know I'm rooting for you.

  5. I didn't know that you taught gym too! I can picture you doing that.

    That is a great quote, and one that holds so much truth. I hope you are doing well Leah.
