Jim's Week in Review: Saturday Special.

So, life is rather interesting for me right now. It is the end of the school year, which is always a busy time for me because in the final month we have a concert, a play and two or three graduations which all require stage services, and I am the stage manager in my school. Add to that the fact that I teach a full load of classes (actually a full load plus 1 extra class), and I have to write and administer exams for 180-some odd students. Needless to say it is a busy time, lots of stress and I really don't eat right during this time of the year.

Add to that the physical aspects of the past couple months, plus getting used to cooking different because I am in a relationship with someone who has severe food allergies, and my life has definitely changed. My girlfriend is allergic to products made of corn, and my favorite sweetner, Splenda(TM) is a corn product, so it is either NutraSweet(TM) or regular sugar. Sheesh! From time to time as I find/create recipes that are compatible with both her allergies and my diabetes and weight loss goals, I will post them.
Anyways, my weigh in this week held a shock for me. so much so that I actually got back on the scale twice to confirm what I saw this morning. Last week, I was 274.2. This week, I am at 271.8, for a loss of 2.4 pounds (go me!). Well, I really need to start my day, so happy weekend one and all!
Oh! Shameless self-promotion: I have another blog about one of the greatest TV Shows ever (and the longest-running non game or news show in the science fiction category), Doctor Who. It is a running commentary as I watch new episodes and discuss all things Who (and maybe discuss older episodes that are part of my DVD collection during production breaks). Feel free to check it out at



Woo on your weight loss! When you post recipes make sure you tag with recipe and then people will be able to find it again at the top link whenever they want. Oh and I'm going to add the Dr. Who blog to our Friends of listing on the side. Ok? Ok. *hugs*
