Well my new job starts in a week from Monday. Going for training on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It has been 20 years since I have changed jobs. Excited and nervous at the same time. Teaching for the past 28 years and starting my 29th in a new district as well as helping start a new school for Gifted students. Extremely excited for the challenge as well as a little nervous.
I have been walking each day and trying to watch what I am eating. This last year has been a little more challenging trying to keep the weight off. Turning 50 has definitely challenged me in trying to keep my weight in check. I will continue to work hard each day and watch what I eat as well as stay active!
Have a wonderful week everyone!

Well today starts our vacation in Prescott AZ. It is much cooler here up north than in the Phoenix area. I am grateful to be able to enjoy a week of cooler weather. Hoping to rest, relax and get rejuvenated for another school year approaching sooner than later.

  


Summer break

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Well today was about 94 degrees and I got up extra early to walk before it hit 80 degrees. Temperature is climbing this weekend and could get up to 106 degrees. Have to continue to walk in early morning and do some workouts inside. Thinking of trying water aerobics with a friend of mine. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Water aerobics, in your situation sounds healthy, refreshing, and delicious.

Enjoy!

  the reason why i live in oceanside, ca is because it does not get over 80 degree too often. it is only in the 70s now. wish you the best.

Last week of school coming up- New job in the fall

Saturday, May 17, 2014

It has been a while since I have blogged. I have continued to make my 10,000 steps or more each day. I continue to watch what I eat. I am going to concentrate on relaxing this summer before I start my new job in July. I am truly excited to have this opportunity to work with gifted students everyday and being able to challenge them to their fullest potential. This is my last week at my current school. I have been there for 21 years and have really enjoyed working with the students and staff. It is a bittersweet ending. Some of my former students came to visit me this week. It is so refreshing to see them all doing well and growing up.
Hope everyone has a wonderful night and a great week!

    I am so impressed by the guts it takes to change schools after 21 years, but I also understand how fulfilling it is to have new challenges, especially in this career we've chosen. Enjoy this final week, and I wish you all the support and hugs needed to get ready for July. JULY?!!? That will be a quick break!
Good job with the steps and continued diligence!
