It has been a crazy few weeks! Work is super busy (and still aggrivating), I have become a co-leader in the Hold The Stuffing Team, still being mom and the total domestic goddess at home (ha!)!
I love Fall, it's a great time of year, except maybe the last few days here with crazy weather, tornado watches, 86 degrees today and 61 on Friday- what?!
We have Halloween costumes done, candy to give out, a parade on Friday, a party on Saturday, trick-or-treating Saturday night and Sunday night, field trips, Mystery History Theatre for my son's class (he was John Lennon) AND I got engaged and found out I am pregnant! Holy wow!!!!
My fiancee (Matt) and I have been trying to get pregnant for a while, unconventional for some, totally fine for us! We had talked about maybe getting married one day, but neither one of us were in a rush, and we still aren't!
Matt is going to graduate in May with his Bachelors in Internet Marketing, which means he will start seriously job hunting soon, which also means we may move after graduation, which is when I am due (July 3). I am slightly freaking out at the possibility of the kids out of school, Matt graduating, giving birth, moving, or visa versa, leaving my job of 11 years (hmmm- that is a good thing I think!), just lots of changes, all at once! Deep breaths are needed!
Oh, and did I mention that my face is breaking out like a teenagers! Ugh!
I have slowed down a little with my workouts- fatigue has kicked my butt. I really am so nervous about gaining a lot of weight- I did with my first two- so I'm battling the inner demon about this. I also am a lot heavier then I was the last two times I got pregnant, hopefully this time around, since I am eating healthier and exercising, I will be able to keep a handle on it.
Here is a picture of my ring- I love it!

Oh, plateau, why have you plagued me again?
I have read all the articles about plateaus, what to do to break them, I have the tools, the food, the know how, but here I am, stuck for two weeks at the same weight! It's so frustrating!
The last few weeks I have been on the low end of having the drive to really kick this weight loss in to gear. Life has been crazy, and injury, a death, insane stress, loss of drive to exercise and my eating has been off a little. And I wonder why I am at a plateau! Sigh I know that the scale sitting still has only encouraged my lack of umph- shouldn't it be a kick in the behind?!
It's time to revamp, renew my goals, and really refocus myself! Suggestions welcomed!

My boyfriend and his brother have recently started their own online fitness website. I would love it if my Spark friends would check it out, send feedback, follow on Twitter, pass it along to your friends, let him know what you want to see online, or even guest blog! Thanks!

A new attitude, new goals, new challenges, and the same ole same ole of the daily grind.
So, I have blogged about how unhappy I am at my job. We gear up every year to enforce rules, keep communication open, keep the peace and offer the best to the children and our faculty. Hmmm, it seems that when I try to do this, I get "you have a poor attitude", "watch what you do, how you say it", blah blah blah. So, we pep talk ourselves in to enforcing rules (I do not have an actual issue with the "schooling part". My kids go to my school, they get great educations.) and nothing changes.
I have been working in the office for 11 years, have seen people come and go, rules change, kids grow up and away, am constantly told how the school couldn't run without me (maybe this has gone to my head), but this year, I am just DONE! Like DONE being the fat girl, I am done with the office gossip, parent gossip, parents who think they run the school, parents who like to "monitor my attitude", administration (who are my fellow office mates) who when I voice a concern, only go back and "tattle" on my to my boss. Granted, I have had a crappy year, and I am on edge- I will fully admit that. Yet the frustration that builds inside of me, with the daily non-communication that happens around here has brought me to the edge. My children, as I said before, go to school here. I could never afford to send them to a private school if I didn't work here and qualify for financial aid as well, this brings me to my hard decision.
For my mentality, I need to find a new job. For my kids, I hate to leave my job. There are some great parents here, my kids have been here since they were 2, but my sanity is waning. They have been given great skills, I think they would flourish in a public school (which terrifies me- but that's my own issue), they are bright, articulate, outgoing....
I want to be a team player, I want to make a difference, and do my job to the best of my ability. I find that to be more and more impossible.
Today I have decided that I will no longer reach for that Team Player of The Year Award. I will keep to myself, I will back away from parents that flock to my office and think that it is a place for social hour. I will sit at my desk, I will do my job, no more, no less. I think this is such a poor attitude to have, yet other choices haven't worked out so well for me either. Sad I have to think this way.
What to do, what to do.

I work as an office manager at a private school. Needless to say the last few weeks have been more then busy for me. My days are not long enough, my kids are excited, yet tired from being at school, working out as soon as I get home, dinner, bath, bedtime, laundry, dishes, this and that and all of those lovely domestic goddess duties.
I am lacking energy, big time. I am lacking hunger, having a hard time getting my calories in, which is horrible, because now I am lacking any weight loss on the scale- sigh.
Sleep is lacking as well- I have been having crazy strange dreams!
So, I must revamp, re-evaluate, re-organize my time! This past weekend was really busy, I don't know where the hours went! This coming weekend is going to be just as busy. My boyfriend is involved in a fitness challenge Saturday, then home to host a birthday party for my son with family and friends. While, yes, this will all be fun, the thought of cleaning the house, prepping for a party, shopping, wrapping, goodies bags, cake- it's a bit overwhelming!
Deep breath...I need to catch up on here too!
I need a few more hours of the day, and a few more hours of sleep!
