Today I started school again.
This will be my 27th year as a teacher/librarian.
Every year I get so energized by meeting new people and seeing new students.
Many can not believe I have been in educations so long.
By the end of the school year I am tried and ready to leave the campus and the students behind.
But this is a new year. The kids will be older and I hope this year I can teach them more.
The teachers will be the same with some new ones. I look forward to meeting them.
Just like with weight loss. I have been trying to lose weight all my life. Some years are better than other years. Many years I have been just too tired to try to lose weight. I get frustrated and gain. Some years I just can not do anything to change it just seemed like all I could do and I would gain.. I am still going to keep trying.
I joined Sparkpeople and for me it get very motivated to hear about others journey. Every time someone new joins my team I am so happy to hear about their goals and trials.
I hit bumps in the road to weight loss but it is good to have friends to help me up.
I really look forward everyday to reading the blogs from the members on my teams. You all are an inspiration to me.
This is a true story.
It is serious unlike many of my blogs.
Yesterday I was and a driver was stopped at a . My
Friend and I crossed at the cross walk. She rode her bike in front of the car and the drive was over whelmed with her beauty did not see me and he started to pull out and he hit me or at least my bike.
From years of walking and biking and knowing drivers do not look around I was prepared . I was able to jump off my bike to the side. The car did not touch me and my bike was not damaged. I did not call the police. I did chew out the young driver of the car. I could be a gold digger and got to many doctors for stress, x-rays, ect. I am sure I could find a lawyer to take the insurance company to the cleaners. Why? As a Christian I do not need money that way. I have my health. My bike is ok. No worries be happy.
My advice to everyone make eye contact with the driver before walking or biking in front of the car. My mother's advice wear less clothes so maybe they will look at me.
Last night as I was finishing my walk. I went by a little store and I was attacked a Hershey bar. It is true I think maybe I was just overwhelmed with heat and it just jumped into my mouth. Tonight I am not going by that store.
I got up late today so it was 10am before I went walking. It was a very beautiful day at South Padre Island so I walked and enjoyed. When I got home 2 hours later I found out that there is a heat advisory out. I felt great I am glad I took water with me and I was at the beach at least walking in the sand. Saturday I am going to try to get going earlier. I just have to get out of bed.
As I step on the scale I whisper
Scale scale on the floor
Give me a numbed I will adore.
At my weekly weigh in I think it is
I came back from a road trip. I was mad at myself because I had gained 10lbs.
So many of my Spark friends wrote it is s just water weight but I knew the ice cream I had eaten the gummy worms and the taffy.
SO in the last 5 day I have walked 4-6 miles in the morning then 3 at night. NOT as a punishment but t o get to back in shape and to enjoy the last days of my vacation.
I can do this.
