Hello fellow bloggies,

Sorry I have been away for a little while, but alas I have returned.

So the interview came on Saturday, and I walked in there and did my best. I learned that there were over 350 applicants for just 65 Elementary spots. I don't think that I did great because I was really nervous but I won't find out for 4-6 weeks anyhow. I have applied to other schools also (some of which I would like to get into even more) so I'm not that freaked out yet. I just keep telling myself "Nini Breath! You WILL get into a teaching program SOMEWHERE..."

Monday I had my weigh in. Another 1.4 lbs down, for a total of 11.8. Of course I wasn't particularly pleased when I had expected perhaps a bit more... but I haven't been doing a lot of exercise lately on account of the infected sweat gland. That is just about healed though so I will hopefully be stepping it up again really soon after I am in the clear.

THEN...IT...HAPPENED... Suddenly upon arriving home from school, I was ambushed... Aflame with 24 candles, it came towards me... (Imagine my surprise receiving a cake after I had specifically asserted that I wanted to skip it this year.)

I blew them out, knowing that in front of me was a very dangerous situation and also wishing that when I looked down again it would just disappear. I looked down and what sat there?

AN ICE CREAM CAKE?!! Yes its true. I did have a piece out of guilt that someone went through the trouble of getting one, but I didn't enjoy it!... Okay maybe I did, but I am vowing that I will be having just the one piece. God only knows how many points that was. Yes I am obsessed once I start counting... I cannot stop!

Nonetheless, I am sending it away this evening. I cannot be trusted alone with its delicious nature. Not to mention that I mayyy have had a VERY small piece of lasagna and a couple bites of broccoli salad.

How do you handle those 'birthday moments?'


  1. I think you did just fine. I am not opposed to eating the "bad" stuff every once in a while. Sometimes I can't resist it. But I will only give in if it's something I REALLY love or want.
