I have enjoyed the Teaching of Writing class far more than I thought I would at the start of the semester. Today’s mini-lesson went well, though I suppose I could have talked less and let the students interact more. The rest of the day-long class went swimmingly and I took a lot of notes, wrote some crazy poems, and stuck to my diet despite cravings for chocolate.

Yesterday I allowed myself a cookie at work and a Reese’s Peanut Butter On The Outside cup during class. I had been wanting to try one of those for ages and let me tell you, when you haven’t been doing chocolate in a month or so (except the marvelous peanut butter pie on my birthday), those things are amazing.

I weighed in at 179.5 this morning. I am considering reintroducing bread into my diet on Monday in the form of subs for lunch at Subway. If it worked for Jared, why can’t it work for me? I mean, I’m more inclined to believe that it’s the exercise that’s really helping the weight loss. I think the low-carb thing has helped kick-start my metabolism but a little bread is not going to hurt me.


Uhm, so I have class again tomorrow morning and I think that means its time for bed. I’ll catch you on the flipside.
