Oh my gosh!!! My husband and I were just (lol just) going to go out and do my first 60 mile bike ride. But... we got going, and I really felt great, so we decided to do the 85 mile bike ride, and I think the bike WON!!! LoL! It kicked my butt, and I am ready to go PASS OUT! I'm tired... We maintained about 18 miles per hour, we really pushed it. We were with a larger group the first half and I got to draft and just pull a little, but on the way back... My husband and I took off, and it was just the 2 of us taking turns pulling. WoW! What a work~~out!
I am getting ready to go back to school on Monday. I have to say this is where all great eating and exercise habits went out the window last year. The stress of the new school year had me reaching for Jelly Belly's and whatever other candy I could find. I really don't want that to happen again this year. It's funny because it's NOT my students that really stress me out. It's my co~workers and principal. They are just negative and BLAH! I know there are a lot of pressures on teachers, but man... do what you can!
I have a plan of just trying to keep my mouth shut and stay positive. Unfortunately, most of the teachers are "Me Me ME's" therefore, they don't work for the better / good of the school. I FINALLY after 5 years at this school GET THAT. I can't change / help the school on my own. So... I've resorted to just working with my 30 students in my class and doing the BEST dang job I can do.
OK... off for a much deserved NAP!!!
