Glad last weekend is over (just venting)

Monday, December 05, 2011

Last weekend was a very hard weekend for me.
At school on Friday we had our Dec. Festival.
Our Asst. Principal was sick at home, the principal had meetings so that left me to get the show going. Needless to say I had 3 classes in the library every period so I could not do much.
I must admit I was stressed. emoticon
Since I could not be in three places at once some things did not get done as quickly as some of the teachers wanted them to get done. I could just not do everything by myself. Really by myself on top of watching my classes. I did not sleep well over the weekend I was so upset at being hung out to dry.
The festival did not have a good turn out again the principal implied that I should have gotten the posters up earlier.
She did not say me but I knew who she meant.
I did not want to go to work this morning I am just tired of the last min. things.

Then on top of the Festival being a bust and not making much money.
My bookfair ended on Friday. Each teacher was given $150 to spend. The teachers were told to get the books and set them aside in bags so I could total up the amounts. Most of the teachers but the books in a bag with their names on the bags.
One teacher said she put her books on the table or on the shelves to be saved she could not remember where she had placed them.
Today the books got load on the truck.
The bookfair was picked up, her books got loaded with the other books.
Again to the office why did I load up the books.
I loaded up all the books.
The teacher did not tell me those books were for her.
She did not label them. How was I to know??????
I have a headache.
I took 1/2 day off. I went to the doctor to get my allergy shots and came home. I did not stop for chocolate. I did not eat ice cream. I took a nap and now I am going to walk on my treadmill.
I am an intelligent person'
I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me.
Next week will be a better week.

    Awe.. I totally relate! This time of the year is crazy, and with my district going right til the 23rd, I don't think I'll be ready for Christmas, but the good news is that it comes anyway, and I'll be able to celebrate being with my family.
Don't let other's comments get to you, sometimes we read into them too much. I think that it's sad that with education we have to look at ways of fundraising to make ends meet. I live in Alberta, a oil and gas rich province, but still we sell magazines every year to help fund activities not covered in the traditional budget. The days are only so long, and we can only accomplish so much. It is the way it is.
Good for you for avoiding the stress eating. I also love that you're in TOPS. It's totally changed my life and made me reach goals I never thought were possible!
I hope this week goes well for you and that you get to take some comfort in Friday, Saturday, and Sunday!

    Sorry you had such a bad day. I do know what you mean--been in that kind of situation too. As long as you know you did the best that you could, try not to let them bother you. They have to blame someone without blaming themselves. You did great not eating everything in sight and doing your exercise. ((HUGS))

Really I could not walk in the morning

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Tues. Day 2 was very hard for me to walk in the morning. I go up early but so did the baby girl

So instead of walking on the treadmill I ran around the house chasing her and trying to catch her for about 15 mins. She also helped me with the stretching.
Tues wrote in the journal and ate within the calories. Yea a good day.
I did go to the weigh in gained 2.5lbs. I am not worried that will be off next week and more.

Wedsday 3
Got up in the morning did my walking.
Drink my water, wrote in the journal and ate in the calories.
Still on track.

Day 1 (again)

Monday, November 28, 2011

OK so again I have fallen down along the journey of weight loss.
I had a gain over Thanksgiving but I am starting over again.
I am going to be focused during Dec.
Day 1
got up and walked on the treadmill 2.5 miles
eat a healthy breakfast, lunch and supper (in my calorie goal)
wrote down everything I ate in my journal.

These are the things that went right.
It was a Monday for me.
My hair straighter broke, I could not find my car keys or my school keys. Late to work.
The rest of the day was not much better. Right now I could go for some chocolate but I am not. I had mole for lunch and I think it satisfied my coco craving. (mole is a mexican dish made with unsweetened chocolate and chicken)
I think Tuesday will be much better
Day 1 again

Thanksgiving Vacation

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Sorry I have not been as active as I used to be.
During the summer time seemed endless.
When school started I was back in the fastlane time flew by.
I was glad to have Thanksgiving Vacation to relax.
My husband and I went to Falcon State Park camping.
The park in about 90 mins from our house.
I spent the week kayaking and trying to fish.
Some may remember that a young couple had some problems with border bandits at Falcon lake. I am happy to say that it was in a town north of the State park. Also we stayed close to the shore on the American side of the lake.
It is very hard to kayak, balance and fish at the same time.
I did not catch any fish but I had lots of fun.
We drove home for Thanksgiving then we went back to the park.
My 2 daughters just wanted to stay home and be with their cousins.
I saw some beautiful birds. Ospery catching fish, roadrunners, and javalines.
I think for Christmas I am going to look for a water proof camera because I would love to show you some of the pictures.
Just being 90 mins away with no tv, no phones and no computers I felt like I was in another world.

So dear friends I need to get back on track. The end of the year is almost here and I am going to lose weight sensibly.

When the going gets tough I eat chocolate

Monday, October 17, 2011

Quote of the day.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I really like this quote. For me it was easy to lose weight over the summer. I was not working and I could exercise and rest. Now I am working and dealing with the challenges of life. Stress, work, family, late nights, early mornings ect. I gained last week and I really had to take a look at myself and what I have been doing. Friday night pizzas after the football game. Going out to eat with friends ect. Yes I gained but I have not been committed to my healthy lifestyle. What did I do when the going got tough I ate cookies and chocolate?

No more.
I am recording what I eat.
I am measuring my food.
I am exercising every morning even for just 20 mins.
I will lose weight.
I will eat sugar free chocolate pudding, sugar free hot chocolate.
