Talk about non-scale victories and not even realizing it! Since April, when i really started this journey, i decided that i had to balance my life better. As a teacher, as many of you know, your work is never done. my room needs to be organized before tomorrow morning, I just thought of a new way to reinforce this concept, so I have to stay and get the materials ready, etc, etc, etc. I absolutely hate to work out in the mornings, so I already knew that was not going to happen. That leaves after work. Oh, my, as someone who would stay until 6 or 7 at night sometimes, this was certainly a dilemma. To make matters worse, 3 weeks until school is out is an especially busy time. I realized that since April, with very few exceptions, I met my goal of leaving before 4 and coming home to work out Prior to this year, I looked forward to "after school was out, I could work out" mentality. I am happy to say, that this never crossed my mind for June. I am going to continue that goal and figure it out some other way. This whole mindset has left me less concerned because the summer promises less time for me anyways. The day after school lets out we leave for a vacation to both Florida and then to Colorado to visit my son, then 4th of July, then hosting a shower for my niece, then curriculum work, then teaching summer school, then a few days in DC for my niece's wedding Labor Day weekend, then back to school. My dream of all the time in the world has disappeared. I will figure this out, one step at a time, but for now, I have my plan for my first challenge in place!
