Setbacks will not stop me

Sunday, August 16, 2009

I didn't have a terrible weekend. I worked out with my fiance and by myself. I ate fairly healthy...although I didn't find the time to track any of this. However, I looked at my friends this weekend and they are all so fit. I know they complain about this or that, but they look fantastic! I know people say that about you when you feel bad, but something in their faces didn't say that this time. They silently let me know that I was heavier than them, by a lot. So, I've decided to turn over a new leaf. Normally, this reaction would have made me cry (I did a little). But tonight i've decided to add a little bit of relaxation to my health routine. I have a yoga mat, I bought a candle and I'm downloading some relaxing music. I am going to try to end my hectic days with some calming me time. (it's difficult right now because my computer is terrible and this music is taking forever to download). BUT, i am going to relax. No matter how skinny or muscular I become and no matter how many miles I'm eventually able to run...I cannot be healthy if I am always stressing out.
I'm going to try, and use this blog to document for myself how I feel.

    I LOVE the sound of a balanced life. Sometimes we can become too focused on only one aspect of our life. You're right, your mental well-being is at Least as important as your physical well-being, and maybe more so. Stick with your plan!!!

    Anxiety and stress can have horrible impact on our goals. Good job in trying to relax and handle the stress.

The School Year begins...

Thursday, August 13, 2009

I have been going to meetings here and there for the past couple of weeks, but next week is when the school year is going to start full force. I have a special ed meeting on Monday, a school meeting on Tuesday, a district meeting on Wednesday, and the students being on Thursday.

My get healthy goals for the school year are:
- workout 1 morning a week
- make my lunch the night before
- pack a healthy snack to get me through my after school workout

My "be a good teacher" goals for this school year are:
- create fun and meaningful activities for my students
- keep good records
- stay up with my lesson plans

I can do it. I'm hoping mom..(hint hint) will do some of these goals with me. :)

I just watched the Fox video about Spark People. I had no idea that this great site is funded by one man. I am surprised that there is no additional cost to us as users. Why would anyone bother with weightwatchers?

    I guess people just don't know about SparkPeople. We need to spread the spark.
