The Cardboard Box Diet: Week 9 #cbdiet

What an eventful week! I've gotten a lot of my to-do list done - and also had something exciting happen. (Picture!)
  • Weigh-in: 13.5lbs to go - 11.5lbs lost! I haven't lost any weight - but I also haven't gained any back! I am watching the snacking - it has been a LOT better so I'm hoping to see progress again soon.
  • Exercise/Physical Activity completed:  I exercised last Thursday, Monday, Tuesday, and tomorrow (Thursday). I skipped tonight (Wednesday) because of a back-log of teacher stuff I had to get done.
  • Average Sleep per night: about 7 hours - I am getting a little better. I try to make sure the computer is shut down so all I can do is crawl in bed (after the kids are asleep.) Last night I was in bed just before 10!
  • Splurge/Guilty Pleasure: I had some candy this weekend - thank goodness for the $1 snack packs. 6 little fun size bits of candy. Enough to satisfy my chocolate urge but not enough to destroy me.
  • Success story: I got a really nice email from a new teacher at our school. She commented that she's heard great things about me and can't wait to work with me this year. (Which is nice because I feel like I complain a lot and cause a lot of trouble.)
  • Recipe(s): Meals have been slightly better - more fresh or fresh frozen instead of fast frozen. The routine is getting easier.
  • Photo: Draw your own conclusions. (Everyone was FINE.)

Also, I opened an Etsy shop! I'm selling custom fabric binder covers and lanyards. I hope to expand soon to selling custom clipboards.


  1. Good job not gaining anything back! Keep on keepin' on! ;-)

  2. Great job at keeping the weight from coming back!

  3. I just joined #cbdiet and it's great to meet you! And best wishes on your Etsy shop. I'm off to check it out ...
