Number lines and Dieting

It's "Fri-yay" so let's reflect on the week with Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday. 

After watching a Brainpop Jr. video on Christopher Columbus we loved making the three ships:  The Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria.  They look adorable on display in the hallway with our informative writing about this explorer.

We learned about how to use a number line to add and subtract.

I introduced the VIP desk this week!  This was an old school desk that used to be mine as a little girl. I refurbished it with some spray paint and by decoupaging scrapbook paper onto the top and the students are in LOVE!

This was a fun writing prompt:  Should kids have chores at home? I love this kiddo's thoughts.  Why don't my own kids see it this way?

I started a diet this week.  I'm either going to be broke or skinny.  Maybe both.  The program is called Ideal Protein and basically I can't eat anything. No fruits. No carbs. No sugars. No bread.

I. think. I. may. be. dying.

I get to eat like an astronaut and eat 2 pouches a day.  Did you know that eggs can fit into a pouch?   Yea....

So anyway...I get 2 of their meals and a whole bunch of veggies  and one meal of my choice of 8 oz of protein (egg, chicken, fish, meat, etc) and 2 cups of vegetables.

My friend lost 50 pounds in 5 months. I met another woman who lost 110 pounds on the program but here's the best part.....

No exercise. Yup. That my the reason I joined.  I am consuming too few calories to exercise and though I want to rip someone's face off, I don't have to exercise which to me- is just as painful as ripping someone's fast off.

I'm learning to cook now too. I made this delicousness in the crockpot. It was great to come home to homemade chicken noodle soup on a cold and rainy Friday evening when I'm exhausted and starving to death.

How was your week? 


  1. I'm with you, I'd rather have less calories than have to figure out when I have time to go to the gym...even though it does at times lead to wanting to rip someone's face off! Hope it works out for you!

  2. I love those ships from Christopher columbus! I might do it tomorrow with my firsties! Thanks for sharing!
