Well once again the 5% challenge has started. I am so happy and excited to get back on track. It is so easy to let life get in the way and not watch what you eat, not work out and just go about without tracking our food intake.
Well now that the challenge has started it is a motivator and it gives me a reason to get up and go. Being accountable to others and helping the team inspires me to do something for myself. mm
My summer was great and although I did stay active I was not as detailed as I should have been. Then vacation time is over and back to work means long hours and the excuse of no time to work out. Well enough of that!!
So today I got up early and went to the gym, I have tracked all my food and have been drinking my water. I am committed to the challenge and to myself. So today is the first day in my journey towards a better me!! Let's Rock!
Well I stayed on through the whole challenge even though the weight results went the opposite direction!
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! 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!
So thanks to all the team leaders for their encouragement support and inspiration! Thanks to all my spark friends for being there m
I am definitely preparing myself for the next challenge and will not give up no matter what!
WOW! I am totally exhausted but so satisfied after my first day as a 2nd grade teacher! m 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. 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! m 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! m
So let the fun continue and let the learning begin!
Ok today was weigh in day and I knew what was coming! So I did not get upset I told myself if you do the crime you pay the time! m 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.
So now I am back home, back at work and today when I walked into the gym the equipment and machines were happy to see me! m They were all wondering where I was hiding!
So yes I am back on the horse and ready to get serious again. I know it was so easy to put on the weight - let's see if I can make it easy to take off or at least I will try my hardest!!!
