Rainy Day = Cool Day

It's raining like crazy today in Houston. I'm off today for Labor Day so I don't care if it rains all day. At least, it is  a nice break from the heat.

I've been busy learning my new job duties. Still at the same place, just new position. It's okay. Miss my window SO MUCH. I feel like I'm in a vault. But they'll be tearing down the building I'm in now sometime around April and then we'll all be housed in some little temporary buildings...won't that suck big-time be fun? The new building is going to be so nice it makes all this worth it. Hey, we have to focus on the positive stuff, ya know.

One of the perks of my job is that I get to travel for a planning meeting every September and then take some students on a trip every April. This school year the trip will be to Albuquerque, NM! I'm so excited!! I've never been there and we hope to take the students to Sante Fe for a little culture. The new Dean of Fine Arts and I will go to the planning meeting in a couple of weeks and while we're there we are going to take our own road trip to Sante Fe and check things out. I can't wait! So, if you've been to that area and have a fav spot, please tell me about it and any tips you might have.

I'm still struggling along with my diet. I seem to be stuck in that place where you lose a couple then gain them right back. Soooo, frustrating. Has anyone tried The Fat Flush Plan? I would like to bust through this plateau and drop of few pounds before my trip so I'm thinking about buying this book and give it a try.

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much. Thanks for sticking with me!

Have a great week :-)


  1. I've been hearing about Texas' serious heat this summer and I feel for ya being a non-hot weather person. And I know what you mean about food being the biggest challenge. Good luck with the jump start -- good idea. I love Santa Fe and Albuquerque and it will come as no surprise that one of my favorite parts of that area is the food. Yumm on the sopapillas (which are nonexistent in CA). :)

  2. I'm up by Dallas. The rain today was lovely :)

    I LOVE Alb and Santa Fe! I lived in NM for 6 years. Give me a bit and I'll come up with some cool stuff :D

  3. Love the O'Keefe museum in Santa Fe. Also, I'm trying to think of the name of my favorite Mexican restaurant. I may have to dig back through my archives. It was in an old house and it was marvelous.

    If you do a spa thing in SF, 10,000 waves is supposed to be excellent. And the galleries are fabulous. You will have so much fun!

  4. I've never been to Sante Fe...but it sounds like fun! :)

  5. Hi there! Just wanted to say hi and let you know that I'm so glad that I happened to come across this blog. It's very inspiring to find other people who are interested in fitness and weight loss. I myself have lost 125 lbs and my story will be featured in the November 2010 issue of Shape magazine. This is very exciting for me! Anyway, I have a blog at if you'd like to check it out. I look forward to reading more of your weight loss journey. Take care! <3 Laura
