Weight lost Ė 1.4kg. My weight goal was to break 80kg. AND I DID IT!
Total weight lost: 7.7kg
Lowest weight: 79.6 (Weighed in on the 28th. I am house sitting and without my scale)
Exercise minutes - 1164 minutes Ė Goal met!!
Days exercised - 22/31
Average workout time - 53 minutes
5+ a day: Still going well. Getting in more fruit now that I like greek yogurtÖIt is fun to dress the fruit up a little.
This month I lost more than double what I lost last month! YAY!!! I am glad I didnít get discouraged last month, and I am glad that my hard work this month has paid off. The holidays probably helped, because I was able to exercise more than usual.
Now, my non scale victories.
I fit into these jeans
Two of my watches needed to be shortened. They were halfway up my forearm when I wore them! My other watch, which barely fit at the start of the year not only fits, it is loose! Not loose enough to have a link taken out, but getting there.
I can wear a sleeveless top without feeling like my arms are the big, fat focal point.
Speaking of tops, my favourite teacher top is too big! Look how loose it is!
Thankfully a cute belt means I can keep it in the rotation for a bit longer!
ALL of my rings have to be resized. They are all too big on me now! Since I used to fit the rings myself I know that they were the perfect size for me. Iím thinking Iíll get the main ones resized in June (I have free resizing with a few, even though I donít work for the company anymore. The rest I can still get resized at staff price), and hope that my hands donít shrink anymore!
May goals tomorrow!

79.6kg! Whoop whoop, another new low. I am glad it went back to where it is supposed to be, after my 1.3kg fluctuation. That wasn't nice at all!
I skipped my run last night because of the rain. Well, kind of. I don't object to running in the rain, in fact I enjoy it. It had been raining all day and I thought the sidewalk would be too slippery to make it safe to go out and run. 2 rest days in a row is not good, but I haven't taken 2 in a row for a few weeks, so I'm ok with it. Sometimes it is nice to just rest! I shall be going for a run later on today, since the rain has eased and the ground had dried a little. So, run today, weights tomorrow!
I have lots of work to do today. I have to plan the maths homework, the maths, the reading, the literacy, PE, topic... The list goes on and on! I know where I am heading, so I just need to get it all written down and ready to go!

Firstly, I posted a status update about something cute that one of my kids said today during writing, and a girl I haven't seen in years jumped down my throat, saying I was a sexist, gender role forcing teacher because during writing the kids had to write their character as a man. One girl didn't want to be a man, so I told her she could write as a wife recieving letters from her husband who went to war (so she could include details that were needed, like what the living conditions were). She screwed up her nose and said "Ew, no! I'd rather go to war!". And it was FUNNY. Coz a 10 year old thinks being married to a boy is worse than going to war. Well, it made me laugh. We are writing about being in the trenches in world war one! No women were on the front line! It is what we are studying, it is what happened, and now I am sexist? Well f*ck me, I never knew! Defriended her and deleted her comments on my status. I don't need that! I work really hard to give my kids a varied and interesting curriculum, and I am told I am pretty darn good at it! And considering I thought that up in 2 seconds, I thought it was a good plan B!
Secondly, my mum, ever looking for a short cut has gotten some of those African Mango Weight Loss thingys. Waste of freakin money in a jar! My dad and I just shook our heads, but there is nothing we can do, she won't listen to us! The new joke is the she can pay me and I'll tell her to eat less and exercise more. Well, the joke between me and my dad, anyways. So she is going to take these pills, nothing will happen and she will keep getting fatter. Her BMI is 40, she drinks all the time and smokes. I am scared for her health, but she just won't do things the normal way, with diet and exercise!
In other news, holy keeping within my calories, batman. How on earth am I supposed to do that! Seriously. I am managing, but only just. As much as I hate tracking, I am going to go back to it for a little while. Currently I am doing 4 300 calorie meals a day, which leaves me room for some snacks, which I always need, because I'm a muncher!

We painted out palms and made 2 side by side palm prints on the paper. Once those had dried we went around the edge in black marker and drew a black dot in the middle. Then we cut out the poppy and glued a green stem to the bottom. Easy, fun and they look great (if I do say so myself!)

I was told the above TWICE today!
We had a morning tea for the DP, as her birthday was yesterday. There was a nice spread of things like cheese and crackers, scones with jam and cream, chocolates, as well as some fresh fruit. Never one to turn down free food, I added some grapes to my fruit salad. They were a nice addition. I didn't touch the other stuff, mainly because it didn't appeal, and also because I had already tracked for the day and I hate changing that thing.
Anyways, after my observation (more on that later) the DP, who is my mentor teacher, said I looked like I needed a sugar hit, and said "have a chocolate bar!" So I took one and added it to my chocolate stash in my desk drawer. THEN in the afternoon she said it again, just because "You go to the gym everyday, you can afford to!". That one got added to the secret stash too. I really didn't want them, and I wasn't going to eat them just because I got given them.
I only have a secret stash because she keeps giving me chocolate. I have some mini easter eggs that she gave me, and now 2 mini chocolate bars. I forget it is there most of the time, and only dip into it every few weeks if I feel like a treat at school.
The observation went well. The observer was only told that I was a beginning teacher, and she thought I was in my second year! That was nice to hear. I have lots of things to work on, of course, but that is OK, because I'm only new. I still have a lot to learn, but I am excited to be learning from a literacy expert who is very experienced in the classroom. Also, she is super nice, which always helps!
Also, you will all be pleased to know that the stupid scale is going down again. I hate fluctuations!
Now for something completly different
