    Ah teachers drive me crazy! Mine keeps giving us extra work on top of a million things already assigned and she wants it all TYPED...I mean c'mon!

    Well I'm up really early this morning-for me at least, I should make use of it and get some extra practice...I have a lot of things I'd like to work on...hard to narrow it down...I want to go over my drum solo we learned, (i've continued practicing it because though I can do it I think it still needs smoothing out) but I'll only do that a couple of times and it is only 1:45 long...I want to practice my 3/4 shimmy...a little veil...some balance moves perhaps. My hips circles while walking...I just didn't look too graceful the other day in class with that...many things I need to practice.

    Fitness my goal...hmm...well I'm not quite ready to get myself to the gym today...and can't tomorrow so I think my goal will be to go to the gym THURSDAY!

    Diet goal for today...I will not drink any Mountain Dew today...erh...okay fine no soda today either...

    Thank you Miss Shimmy, yours too although I guess your day is coming to an end by now

    You know they always say you should have a new habit to replace emotional eating, like go for a walk or DANCE but I think it is hard when you're at work-at least when you can eat at your desk-which I can and I do. What can you replace eating with? I can't very well leave and go do something and I certainly can't dance at my desk

    You could replace the unhealthy snacks you eat at your desk with fruits and such and a bottel of water?

    I'm still reading the article I have to present It's quite difficult and it makes me stressed

    hey sstacy (& everybody!) hope all is well.... I replace food with MORE food!!!
    but I TRY & make it healthier.... like LONG ago, I learned that for whatever reason, I am a pig!!! need great piles of food, all the time!!! so now, I eat great piles of broccoli with my hummus, instead of pitas, or chips....
    I'll eat 3 huge bowls of soup instead of the soup & (higher calorie) sandwich combo...the only place I will exercise portion control, is with high calorie foods.... (just to become aware of reality! "you mean there are 300 calories in 1/2 cup of icecream!.... see how little it is!!!") & I also like to "trick" myself & take small portions so I can ALWAYS go back for seconds.... & for those rare times that I don't (go back for seconds..) .... where's my icecream scoop!!
    seriously.. sounds stupid & corny,,, but my "tricks" work (lost 18 lbs since new years!) I think cause I go with my piggy "nature" instead of trying to be somebody I am not (a bird like eater!).. so the secret, I think, is to figure out what works for YOU! & don't worry what others say!.. like .... know I'll burn in Hell for this true confession.... but I don't eat breakfast!!! EVER... (unless I have gone without dinner the night before, then I am hungry & will eat!)... my "energy" time is abt 11am to 11pm... even though have to be up by 7.... (kids in school thing.. ugh!)
    my workday is usually noon - 8 or 9pm so dinner is usually 9 or 10.... so I do not need breakfast so early as someone who dinner at 5 or 6.... (& I do have LOTS o' cream in my coffee, or a big latte for the school trauma!).. anyhow I am old & have pretty much been like this my whole life... & I tend to gain weight when I eat breakfast.... & I am not usually hungry then anyhow!!!!
    My perfectly proportioned daughter is probably the only person I know who eats ONLY when she is hungry.... which of course is a great tip.... however, don't know HOW TO pull that one off... some people recommend keeping a food journal, where you record not just WHAT, but WHY you eat (your emotional state... angry, sad, bored, etc... ) & based on what emotions you discover to trigger you to come up with a different distraction to replace the food.... (can you get up & take a vigorous walk around the building when you feel like munching at your desk...??)
    oh well THIS is what I am replacing food with at the moment (I eat to avoid work!!!!) so REALLY MUST work now!!!!

    Yeah, that might be my best option, replace food with food! I might could get away with a quick walk but I do tend to goof off so much (like I am now) I feel bad being away from my desk too much

    I got a message saying the veil I ordered would take 6 weeks before it came in My veil class will be over by then! Of course I'm sure I will still need it for the future but it would be nice to have it before then. I told them to cancel the order...I guess I'll go search for another one.
