I won’t lie, I didn’t take a picture this week in my usual outfit. I am also up this week. Way up. I know what I did–grazed, and ate way more than I should have. I’ll pick up again next week and take care of business.
Next week will be better. It has to be. I did decide this week to continue on with more vegetables and fruits since I like the way I feel when I eat them. So today I had calabacitas (zucchini, corn and garlic cooked in a chicken broth with a little cheese), grapes, a mandarin orange, a green salad with strawberries and almonds, and some hummus on red leaf lettuce. Tomorrow I’m having almost the same stuff, just adding carrot chips to the mix.
Saturday night, my school had its senior prom. I’d chaperoned it before, and decided that I would do it again. The group of seniors that I teach this year and I are pretty close. I adore all of them, even the difficult ones, and so I wanted to share this milestone with them.
Not gonna lie, I was stylin’.

This week’s progress was a surprise, as I was on the road again this week at a conference in Houston. Travel tends to wreak havoc on my routine, and I sometimes don’t make the best choices with regard to eating and exercise despite plans to do so.
