The Cardboard Box Diet: Week 6 #cbdiet

Posting early because tomorrow (Thursday) is my first day back - officially. I've actually worked in my room on my own time for parts of 4 days - probably about 16 hours worth, all totaled.  I'm excited to get back the the regular routine - but getting up early, working all day, AND exercising at night is going to be HARD. I'm a little scared.

  • Weigh-in: 13.5lbs to go - 11.5lbs lost! I have not juiced much this week because I was basically out. Yesterday was pay-day so today I got tons and tons of produce - I'm a little excited.
  • Exercise/Physical Activity completed: I exercised 3 times last week and have done 2 days this week. I'll go again tonight. I'm enjoying it - although I'd enjoy it more if my bathing suits would stop wearing out. (Granted I'm wearing OLD ones because my newer one is TOO BIG. But still, I can't afford to buy new ones. Not yet.)
  • Average Sleep per night: about 7-8 hours - Getting to bed at a reasonable time will continue to be a thorn in my side.  The kids are usually in bed at 9:30 - but the 9 year old likes someone to sit upstairs - so it will be after 10pm before I'm in bed. Getting up at 6 is tough!
  • Splurge/Guilty Pleasure: I've had a bit of candy and sweets recently. I figure it is better to have a tiny little bit when I feel the craving than to deny myself - and then feel awful when I binge. Also - I had REAL, SUGARY soda (Root Beer) and oh, my how I've missed it. Even though I wasn't a big soda drinker before. Go figure.
  • Success story: I'm calling the too big bathing suit a success story because otherwise I'll cuss it. Also, despite being hormonal this past week and being bloated, I'm down a pound and a half. (Which was a nice surprise given the splurges listed above.)
  • Recipe(s): I don't have a fresh recipe to share - mostly because I've been doing a lot of freezer diving instead of cooking. So I'll link to here (cooking) and here (juicing) to give you an idea of what I'll be doing in the next few days - now that I've bought groceries.
  • Photo: I took an updated picture of my classroom today - just for y'all! (Since this is ALL that is on my brain these days - "Must get ready for students.") The table in the corner is for my small groups. All the stuff on the counter is my stuff - teaching junk. I've weeded through the clutter and it has pulled together nicely.
