Winners!! And…loser (me!)

Happy weekend!!!

Thanks for helping me celebrate my blogiversary in true fashion! Of course, the doughnut pans were a huge hit! 😀 Sorry there weren’t more to go around!

Congrats to Becky, Dana, Rebecca, JW, Heather H-F, Matt, Christine, Becca B, Erin, Samantha, Melanie, and Andrea!!

I have sent emails to all the winners. Thanks again for entering, everyone!

And for losers…well, ME! I am down 1.2 lbs this week! It has been a very slow upward climb, or the scale has remained unchanged for a few weeks now, so I’m glad to be back down, for a total of 12.2 lbs since January. I’m batting for the “Slow and Steady” team…and I like it that way!

It’s great to get through a week like last week which was filled with emotional highs and lows and still make it a healthy one. I didn’t mention anything before now, but one the patients I worked very closely with passed away at the clinic last Saturday and the wake was on Tuesday. It was tough, but I’m so glad I had the opportunity to meet the patient’s family and to say goodbye. And it was from the wake that I went to teach our new weight management class – sans any mascara left on my lower lashes. Oy! And while those were the highest of highs and lowest of lows for the week, there was so much more – like an anonymous donation coming into the clinic in my name!

So I am very much so looking forward to a better (and shorter!) week. I mean, school is out for summer!!!!! 😀 I think I was just as excited as my students! It’s not the teaching I dislike (I love it!), it’s the hours! Being away from home all day -and- night 2 days a week is really tough. Those days are so jam-packed that it makes the rest of the week busy + playing catch-up. But hey, I’ll worry about that in another 10 weeks 😉

Rest day today (and yesterday) in preparation for my duathlon tomorrow. I purchased my (oh so sexy) bike helmet yesterday. I will post tomorrow after my event, and when things get tough tomorrow, I’ll be thinking of Samantha running a marathon on her own. If that’s not inspiring, I don’t know what is!

Lily and I are off to the farmer’s market! 😀

Question: What was this week’s high and low for you?

Lots of love,

    So excited that I won!!!

    What a week you had! Have a great relaxing weekend! Well, I’m not sure you can call a duathlon relaxing, but I’m sure it’ll take your mind of things…

    And I totally know what you mean about the excitement about the end of the semester! I love teaching, but sometimes a break is really necessary. And teaching nights is tough!

    Good luck tomorrow!!!!

    The high for me was reconnecting with an old friend 🙂

    The low was working waaaaay too much 🙁

    Sounds like quite the week for you. I’m glad that you were able to have some good highs this week! 🙂

    My high for the week would have to be tomorrow! I’m doing an urban scavenger hunt race tomorrow with a group of friends! My low would be having to work on a Saturday. But that’s okay cause I got off early. 🙂

    WOW! a donation in YOUR name??? Nicole, that’s awesome!! Someone must really appreciate all you do (well, a lot of people do, I’m sure).

    Sorry to hear about your patient who passed away. That must be tough. That’s the one good thing about community dietetics, I don’t have to deal with that (much) but that’s just another reason why I have a lot of respect for clinical dietitians.

    Congrats on the weight loss. That’s great. Hopefully you’re still going to be able to enjoy a nice Thurman Burger! MAybe just half?? I’ve been overdoing it lately so I may just eat the giant burger, no bun…we’ll see. Either way, I’m PUMPED!

    Sounds like you had quite a week. I’m sorry to hear about your patient!

    It sounds like your hard work is paying off – both with the weight loss and the donation in your name. Be proud of yourself.
