This week is always crazy in Augusta.  The weather has been absolutely beautiful and I’ve gotten home from work by 9:00pm each night!  I can’t believe there are only two nights left and it will all be over.  I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to normal on Monday.

We have a field trip scheduled for Monday to The Bell School.  It is an old 1912 one room school house and the children visiting are given a one hundred year old experience.  My boys will wear plain white shirts and dark pants along with suspenders.  Their lunches will be transferred into old metal pails when we arrive and they’ll be taught just like the children were one hundred years ago.  There’s even a spelling bee at the end of the day.  I’m looking forward to it.

Tomorrow is my first weigh-in.  Usually, I do really great the first week of any diet.  I lose 4 or 5 pounds and then level off in the coming weeks.  Tomorrow’s weigh in should be interesting.  I know I’ve lost weight, I just don’t know how much.  It’s been very hard this week, working with a personal chef each night and having plenty of food left over to taste and bring home.  I’ve been pretty good though.  I go to work each night with points left over and when I do choose to taste the food, I do it very sparingly.  Last night I had a small bowl of mashed potatoes when I got home; probably less than one cup.  I said no to the fried chicken and pineapple upside down cake!  Today I will be very precise and drink lots of water so I can weigh in tomorrow with confidence.

I’ll let you know the outcome of week one sometime tomorrow.

Happy Friday!!!
