I have a question, and it is kinda silly...
OK so at school I have duty 3 times per week. Essentially I walk around the school for 15 minutes a day. I try to keep a good pace up, but I don't break a sweat. Since I am moving for more than 10 minutes I am wondering if I should track it? I only quick track, no calorie tracking. Is this cheating myself, or would you count it? Hmmm...decisions!
In other news, I had pizza for dinner last night. Dominos pizza does a personal sized pizza range and they are all under 400cal. Not bad for dinner. I mean, it's not exactly health food, but it is a portion and calorie controlled treat. YAY for those! Although, the guy at the counter told me that I should just get a big pizza, since they were only $1 more. He told me the personal pizzas were a rip off. Well, yeah, they are, but I ordered the small one for a reason... He backed off after I pretty much said that as an adult he can assume that I can read and do maths for myself and I wanted my little pizza. I would have been nicer, but he was pretty rude too.
Anyways, I am wiped and going to bed. I love my children, but they are exhusting. Tomorrow we have a spelling test, some reading, some maths and find NZ cities on a map (which they are LOVING)...
I shall leave you with a few gems...
PE teacher: Put the hand you write with in the air. The other hand if the one the glove goes on.
Child: But what if you can write with both? I'm a...whatcha call it...equallateral!
Me: And why is Queenstown an important NZ city?
Child: Because the Queen lives there!
Awww, nice try child

I thought I was going to the gym tonight. I thought I would be fine after boxing last night.
I WAS WRONG. I hurt so bad today. I hardly wrote anything on the board because I could barely hold a pen. We had a 'learning to listen' day in my class. My shoulders and legs kill, since those are the main areas used in boxing. Rest today, gym tomorrow. I little swap never hurt anyone :D
Also, I think my workmate (who is soooo lovely, she gives me big hugs on bad days and pep talks when I need them) is going to join my gym, which is nice. It will be nice to have a familiar face around.
Other than that life is quiet. Working hard, as always. Staff meeting until 6 today (they happen once a month in lieu of mandatory days during the holidays) which was very interesting.

1. Go to a boxing class for the first time in 6 months.
2. Partner up with a guy who assumes you will be weak and meek.
3. Start punching. Hard. You can punch hard.
4. Have the guy say "whoa!" after 2 punches.
5. Feel hardcore.
6. Partner with another guy. Repeat.
Yep. My arms hurt, I smell and I'm tired. Happy Bubble!

I thought it was about time to show you my classroom. I am very proud of it!
I have 23 monsters to call my own. The first week has gone very well and I am really enjoying it. Had a few moments where I have felt overwhelmed, but the staff are very supportive and are helping as much as they can. Sometimes I just have no idea where the start, and need to see another teachers planning to get ideas. Other times I just need things explained to me. No matter what I need someone is always there for me!
I had my first official observation on Thursday. Went very well. I got very positive feedback on my classroom and behaviour management. I have just been firm but fair from day one and it seems to be working. I'm sure it won't last, but currently my kids are awesomely well behaved! YAY!
In terms of eating, I have been doing OK. A couple of nights of takeaways/dinner out, but am holding steady/down for the week. Been to the gym 3 times this week, and will go for a run tomorrow and to the gym on Sunday, so I am happy with that. Got myself some new workout gear on sale, new tights and 2 tops, so I'm excited to wear them. Also got a running jacket on mega sale, so now I can't wait for winter. OK I TAKE IT BACK, I CAN WAIT FOR WINTER!
