Um…I ate too much peanut butter today.

And I liked it.

So, I started doing The South Beach Diet on Thursday (so cliche, yes, but I didn’t want to start anything before New Year’s Eve…).  And it is kicking my tail.  So today I got some all natural, organic, super healthy (0r so I thought) peanut butter.  And then I proceeded to eat…let’s just say too much of it.  But oh dear goodness, it was good.  However, if healthy, organic peanut butter is the death of the two pounds I’ve lost since Thursday, I might have to quit and drink myself a Coca-Cola.  Because I love a good, ice-cold Coca Cola, and it’s really sad that I can’t have one!

(I am doing this primarily for my health – I will be 29 this year and I am trying to avoid the pitfalls of poor eating that have plagued my family.  Namely my parents.  I am at high risk for heart disease and diabetes.)  

I changed the look of the blog.  I would love a custom header, etc., but really, I think all of two people read this blog, if that, so I don’t know that it’s worth paying for a header!  But this is pretty.  If I can figure out how to change the font on the title, I will be pleased.

Christmas break ends tomorrow, and I go back to my glorious boys (and one girl).  I am excited to see them, and I am highly blessed to work with two wonderful assistants that I enjoy.  I am just dreading getting up before 8:00 a.m.  And also, my lesson plans for the week aren’t done.  But tomorrow’s are done, and I might work on the rest of the week’s in a bit.  

So for now, I will say farewell…For posterity, a picture of how long my hair is:


Wow, look at that stray hair over there!
Wow, look at that stray hair over there!

Happy New Year to all!

  1. Happy New Year! I like the new look. (the blog AND the hair ;-D )

  2. Good luck!

    I started a cardio exercise routine the last week of December and am mostly sticking to it.

    The good news is that the less Coca-Cola and other soft drinks you have, the less you desire them. I quit drinking pop years ago–now I will have a ginger ale or a root beer maybe two or three times a year. But it’s really easy for me to just drink water.

    Don’t replace Coke with Diet Coke–those diet soft drinks stimulate your appetite and can be self-defeating.

    I’m not on any specific diet now, but I am cutting back on carbs and dairy and trying to eat more lean meat, fruits and vegetables. Also no potato chips or french fries!

  3. Kim,
    I found you through Poppy Joy, Angie’s blog. I want you to know that I admire you!

    As a Christian, you have a growing desire to be the Bride of Christ. As a woman, you desire to be the Bride, the wife, and the Mommy.

    God’s, “Not yet” doesn’t mean a forever “No.” For now, He has called you to love Him more than anything else.

    I suspect that you are growing so close to Him that all of your students see Him when they look at you. (This is a GOOD thing, btw!)

    Your post from Dec. 28 reminds me of a song I learned as a little girl. It went something like this:
    “Oh, Lord, Dear Lord,
    Great Author of the Play
    May I in wisdom learn
    The only part that I need play
    Is the part that You wrote for me…”

    You do your part and make a pretty picture on the page He gives you each morning. Leave the rest up to Him. If you have seen the movie “Facing the Giants,” you will remember this conversation.
    Coach: I prayed so hard, but I still can’t seem to win.
    Mr. Bridges: I heard of a story of two farmers praying to God for rain to come. Both prayed but only one prepared the land. Who do you think trusted God more to send the rain?”

    Consider yourself prayed for today, Kim. And prepare for rain.

    <, Elizabeth
