Ten Things Thursday

It's Ten Things Thursday...brought to us by the fabulous Laura Belle!

1. I was so sick earlier this week (Monday to be exact). I had one of those nasty kinda viruses where you aren't sure which end to put on the toilet. I didn't eat a bite for two days. I knew better than to weigh myself because I would just get all excited about a big loss only for it to come back the second I took a sip of water.

2. I waited until today to weigh (I don't have an "official" weigh in day) and I am now at a 36 pound loss...woot, woot.

3. I have not eaten any chocolate since Sunday. I think that's like a record for me.'s only because I had been sick, but's still some kinda record for me.

4. I had a fabulous day today. 1st block was only 20 minutes long due to an assembly. 2nd block I didn't have any kids show up (absent, suspended,...skipping?). 3rd block is my planning period. 4th block on Thursdays a counselor comes in to talk to the kids and I have to leave the room (so they are "free" to say what they wanna, yeah, ok). So, it was a drama free, easy, breezy, beautiful covergirl kinda day.

5. I saw this on facebook today. I don't think I wanna eat here.

6. Since I will be changing jobs my insurance will be changing. I have no idea what this means for me as far as getting fills. I am assuming I will probably have to pay for them now. Anybody else had this situation where your insurance changed after surgery??

7. This has become my favorite lunch...Jack in the Box Grilled Chicken Strips. 243 calories and 43g of protein. This is really the only fast food I have had since surgery, but I think it's a great choice.

8. I received a letter yesterday telling me I had been elected to membership for Phi Kappa Phi. Only the top 7.5 percent of Graduate students are selected to be in this Honor Society. I felt a little smart for just a minute.

9. Grey's Anatomy tonight...woot, woot

10. I am 40 days clean and sober from the Dew!

I wonder if the kids skipped your 2nd period because of the assembly during 1st. : )

Best of luck with the new job.

Yay for your current loss!
