146.0 Love the Week Before Memorial Day

I'm substitute teaching yet again today! Gotta love the week before Memorial Day weekend. Today it's English again, but for a teacher I have not been in for before. Here's hoping it's fun! I have no idea what the lesson plan is or even what they are reading. The assignment came through the system last night, but with no contact from the teacher.

We walked the dogs a mile in the park yesterday. It was hot, 90F. I wore that dress and I wasn't even scantily clad, compared with some of the other women at the school. I got lots of compliments on the dress. That felt great.

Here is what I ate yesterday. I gained a pound, but I can afford it. I am well within my goal weight range of 145 to 149.9:

Two bean and cheese burritos by El Monterey, with salsa
Fuji apple with peanut butter and chocolate chips
Qdoba steak quesadilla with guacamole and sour cream
Handful of peanut M&Ms

I tried the new ginger shampoo and conditioner, but that was last night and I slept on it, so it is probably not a good enough trial to let you know how it worked out, for styling my hair. I will get it trimmed soon so it is not so thin at the ends.


  1. Hello Cherise, you are looking great! and I am glad you are still motivated to keep you weight off.I am still following your blog... In reference to the hair comment earlier. My daughter bought me a serum at walgreens that I put on my hair when it is still wet and just leave it on, and when it dries is really nice and natural, I think you would like it, because you will be able to show off your natural curl.(the name is anti-breakage serum- coconut milk) try it and see if you like it)... My diet is going well, but my lack of energy is stopping me from being active which in turn is stopping me from losing weight.:/ I really need to get going! I judt don't have the energy. I think you definetely move alot more than I do. I guess I just need to get busy!! keep up the good work and your blogg! You are looking great! Patty

  2. Patty, The secret to having more energy, believe it or not, is to exercise! For the first three weeks, I had to make myself walk. After that, I was looking forward to my walks and moving much more. You just have to make yourself do it, for those first three weeks. After that, you will have more energy. I promise.
