Time for a change!

I am a Second Grade teacher and absolutely love it! One thing I am not loving is my lack of free time, which has also caused a lot of weight gain. I was unhappy with the way my body was looking, and want to change that! Since joining Sparkpeople, I have lost 46 pounds. I have struggled to maintain, and to get down to my final goal. I have learned that the most important thing in my journey is consistency.

I need to login to Spark more consistently, as this is where I have found the most success. I love creating my goals and using Spark to track my progress with those goals! I am working on my overall fitness and health, and I know the weight will come off when it's ready. I am so proud of the progress that I have already made, and I know that I will continue to be proud of all that I have accomplished.

Hey there! How are you? I heard about the no raise for PWCS and that is just wrong. I feel like education is going down the tubes and we are not repsected as a profession. But yes, I have looked into other avenues where I can still work with people with disabilities (which I love) but just get away from the classroom. I have until June 1st to let the county know I am peacing out. We will see. Hopefully things are going well with you and we need to get together ASAP! TGIF!

Thanks for the comment. I am not sure what I want next year. I have even thought of leaving teaching all together. A lot has been going on and I do need to talk to admin about it. We will see. Only elementary gets the half days on Monday, full days for middle/high schools. Just trying to make it through the day. And yes, we need a sparkdate soon!
