Fresh Start

I see that even though I put a hyperlink in for the last post it doesn't appear to work. 

I am just going to cut and paste the recent post I did today in case you don't want to deal with going to another site. 


I guess I do indeed have a blank page. 

The last posts previously on this blog are from 2019.

Seeing as that is over four years ago a lot has changed.  I will not try and recap because it won't be correct. I will miss things and then feel like I need to correct them. So I will instead try and pretend I have never blogged before.  I am leaving up the archive though if you want to dig. Just know that I am a different person in a lot of aspects much as you probably are too with that big of a time gap.

Married mom of 3. My kids are 18, 15, and 7 years old. I work full-time as a substitute teacher at a local high school. I am employed by the HS so I report there every day and get my assignment for the day. Sometimes it is subbing, and others it is doing busy work. I am located in Central Florida. I am working on my AA at the local college. I have two classes left and a Civics exam. I am super stressed about one class I am currently in called Elementary Statistics. My brain just doesn't quite understand statistics. I am taking this class as a physical class and hope that will help me. I didn't do that great on the first test (D) so hopefully as the subjects in the chapters change things start clicking.

I am forever on a journey to lose weight and reduce debt. At one point I had both of those things at decent numbers.  Now they are both blown out of the water.  We do not make enough to support our bills so I am reaching for credit to make things meet. Vicious cycle. My weight is a yo-yo as well with it being up and down. I recently worked with a trainer over the summer. I did well with her as I had someone always watching what I ate. Now that I am on my own again it is too easy to reach for junk. 

I am hovering in the low 230 and I do not like it! I would feel way better if I was hovering in the 220-225 range. I am seriously considering going low carb for the week and seeing how that turns out. Not keto, as I still want potatoes and rice if I choose to have them. I need to do something because I am back in an I don't care rut. I don't want to cook. I never want to clean. I just have zero inspiration or desire currently. Unfortunately, many of you know that is a continuous issue I have. 

Currently, I have raw chicken breast sitting with spices that I plan to grill. I also plan to cut up yellow squash and grill that as well for a veggie option for me. I will be baking two pork loins for dinner- The kind that is pre-marinaded. That will give me dinner and leftovers for other lunches. I am going to do chicken and rice for my hubby and son. I will do chicken and squash for my lunches.  I will be lucky to get 6 meals (two days) out of the grilled chicken. 

I know this doesn't flow the best but my mind doesn't either.  I am off to try and experiment with the new egg rings I got and see how that works. I also want to get some hard-boiled eggs cooked.
