I am home early this evening because although I started class this evening the freezing rain started coming down. 3 minutes after I told my students to leave and go home (after giving out homework assignments) the school message system texted me stating that school was immediately closed. After a little bit tense ride home (not too bad but people really are stupid when they drive!!)I have arrived in time to see my sick husband and daughter moaning about how sick they feel.

they are man sick..and child sick. I of course had the very same illness last week but went to work, hauled kids around and functioned with only a little bit of whining :)

My band is still driving me nutty-I was hungry this morning. I was Starving hungry at lunch and then ended up pb-ing part of a coffee in the afternoon. I am now eating some leftover chicken and wine ala Julia Child (translate that French but i cannot spell it so avoided). I have managed about 1/4 cup and am feeling distinctly full. Who knows what is going on. Today's menu:

8:30 am Breakfast: one tall nonfat peppermint mocha no whip, four shortbread cookies (over the course of the morning). 12:30-Lunch: 1/2 turkey reuben and a pickle (I ate the pickle first and it went down fine). I believe I wrote an ode to this Reuben a few months ago). 4:00 midafternoon snack: 1/2 nonfat peppermint mocha and then a return of said peppermint mocha. 7:30 Dinner: 1/4 cup of leftover chicken and wine. I will try and eat more but it is not looking too promising-well that could be a good thing or a bad thing.

Hey Tina - all in all your day doesn't look all that bad to me. Your choices were healthy looking to me! I'm sorry the band is driving you nutty - I can completely relate right now. And a sick family! That just makes your job harder doesn't it! I hope your band straightens out soon and starts behaving!

Go peppermint mocha! And you're being far too tough on yourself Tina. You've come a long way, and maintenance may take a while to settle in...
