I was up 0.8 on Saturday! I guess it could be worse, but I'm frustrated. Last week, I tried really hard (honestly), but I still went over my points (and ate an entire pizza for dinner Friday night - not a huge pizza, to be fair, but still).

Hmm, I just read what I wrote, and I really couldn't have been trying all that hard. I think I'm in a bit of denial. I am still happy to be back in my school routine, though. All it's missing is the gym! I'm working on it. :)

In other news, I bought a new dress for the wedding I'm going to on Saturday! I think I could squeeze the zipper shut on my old dress, but I wouldn't want it popping open at an inopportune time. I'll show you a picture of me all glammed up after the fact!

Sorry for the short post - I'm off to get my beauty sleep!

Back to school!

And I'm loving the structure & routine already--even though my first class hasn't happened yet!

I went into school yesterday to get some prep done, and I started my day off well with a healthy breakfast (eaten at the table, not on the couch with my laptop!) and packed a healthy lunch (including homemade date coconut bars - I'll blog about them soon, hopefully!) to bring in with me. I came home and made a healthy dinner (ALSO eaten at the table) and got to bed at a somewhat decent hour.

I was teaching in the summer, but only two days a week. I'm back to four days a week, and teaching a course I've never taught before, so it will be much busier (in a good way).

My last week of holiday (I had a tiny bit of time off between the summer & fall semesters) was very relaxing and fun! I went to Ontario Place & the CNE (don't worry, I avoided the deep-fried butter... although I was very tempted), among other things.

Go Banana!

I also couldn't make it to my meeting on Saturday morning, which is why there was no weigh-in this weekend. I have a good feeling about this coming Saturday, though! I'm going to a wedding in less than two weeks, and when I tried on the dress I want to wear (pictured below), it wouldn't quite zip up.

It ALMOST fits, so I'm determined to get into it! Although I might pretend it still doesn't fit so I have an excuse to buy a new dress. ;)

I'm off to school now! Wish me luck for my first class of the term!

P.S. Sheryl (aka Bitch Cakes), one of my favourite bloggers, just got lifetime! I'm so excited for her!
