5% Summer Challenge as come to an end!

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Well I stayed on through the whole challenge even though the weight results went the opposite direction! emoticon emoticon emoticon

However, I did have a lot of non scale victories and it was the first summer in a longggggg time that I have taken any vacation time alone with just my DH! emoticon So I had a fun summer after three years of non stop stress and family issues! I came back renewed and ready to continue with the issues and my new teaching assignment! emoticon emoticon

So thanks to all the team leaders for their encouragement support and inspiration! Thanks to all my spark friends for being there emoticon m emoticon

I am definitely preparing myself for the next challenge and will not give up no matter what! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Getting time away from everything and having some time alone with your hubby and stress can make you feel refreshed. Ready to take on the stresses of your everyday life when you get back. It sounds like this summer and vacation time was just what the doctor ordered. emoticon I'm sure you'll do better in the fall 5% challenge. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

First Day of School!

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

WOW! I am totally exhausted but so satisfied after my first day as a 2nd grade teacher! emoticon m emoticon I had gotten used to my 4th grader and I forgot how many questions you get from a 2nd grader - so that was fun - but they are all so precious and willing to please that it makes up for the extra questions. emoticon emoticon emoticon I even had a student bring me an apple we just made it so special!

Today was collecting supplies, getting their desk and cubbies set up and go over classroom procedures! Of course all this was happening and we had a surprise visit from our superintendent of schools. The kids were great. They greeted him and he is super friendly but that still catches you of guard! emoticon m emoticon emoticon Well they are gone and now I need to organize my things and maybe I can leave before 6pm and be ready for the 180 days that follow! emoticon m emoticon emoticon

So let the fun continue and let the learning begin!

    1/2 lb lost is great! If you lose a half pound every week that 26 lbs at the end. But I know you'll see more lbs come off next week.

Ok today was weigh in day emoticon emoticon and I knew what was coming! So I did not get upset emoticon emoticon I told myself if you do the crime you pay the time! emoticon m emoticon emoticon So the results are what I expected but I have to confess that this has been the best summer vacation and time I have had in a long, long, long time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Back Home and back to work!

Friday, July 25, 2014

Well reality is setting in! I am back home from my in-laws and what a week that was! I think I ate emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon my way to patience! So I know the scale will be terrible but I have to face the music! emoticon emoticon

My in-laws, I love them, but by the first day they have worn you down! They are like little bickering kids and no matter what you do it is wrong! The whole week was cleaning, taking them to appointments, grocery shopping, etc. Then to make matters worse we had constant rain the whole time! Oh! Well what can you do! I just offered it up as a sacrifice and then I ate, and ate, ate delicious Latin food. emoticon m emoticon

I was able to meet up with my sister that lives in the Fort Lauderdale area and we had one nice sister day together - so once again we ate and emoticon cause we had not seen each other all year!

So now I am on my way to work - setting up my new 2nd grade classroom before the start of school in 2 weeks. I hope to get myself back in the swing of my exercise and tracking so that I can get back on the right track! emoticon m emoticon emoticon

Today of all day is my sparversary and I had hoped to be at my goal weight emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon but I will take this as a new beginning! emoticon m emoticon

Now off to work! emoticon
