Just Yuck.

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

I do try to avoid wallowing in self-pity, but the last couple weeks have been a mire of the stuff. I don't feel like I have the time in my day to get everything done as it is, and getting to the gym to work out is just one more thing on a too long list. It's the first thing that goes when I'm busy, and it really shouldn't be. I know that the exercise actually makes me more productive, but after a ten hour day at work, it sure doesn't feel like it.

I've just got to do it. I've just got to set the goal and meet it, week after week. It's Wednesday, I can do this. The week is hardly old. Three times this week, 30 minutes each. I can do this silly thing.

I was feeling pretty bad about myself this morning - I made the mistake of weighing myself after I ate late last night. I hadn't calculated what I ate yesterday, since it was Meet the Teacher night, and I just bought salad bar stuff from the supermarket for dinner. I calculated what I ate yesterday just now, though, and I totally kept within my calorie limit! After I hit the gym this afternoon, I'm sure that I'll be okay with life in general :)

    Yay for salad bars!

I try to only step on the scale first thing in the AM. There are just too many confounding factors going on in the evening (liquid, food, etc.) Sometimes it's hard to resist the siren song of the scale though. I'm not sure why, because then we just get depressed!

Have a great workout this afternoon. :)

My tooth hurts pretty bad - I think a filling fell out or maybe just disintegrated (it's not the metal kind of filling, but the kind that looks like tooth). I did call and make an appointment today to get it checked out, but the appointment isn't until February 10th! Yuck! I am so not looking forward to that :(

    Oh no! Can't they squeeze you in to at least give you a temporary filling or something?

    Bummer! I'm having problems with my wisdom teeth right now too...Hurts so bad! Ibuprofen really seems to help though if you can take that! I hate how long dentists make you wait!

2lbs down!

Sunday, January 23, 2011

I stepped on the scale this morning, feeling pretty bad about myself. I went out to dinner last night with a friend, and I didn't eat a lot (an avocado roll, an oshinko roll, and a ginger salad), but I still felt bloated and huge. I had chips and salsa for lunch, and I could definitely feel the grease sitting in my stomach.

I lost 2lbs though! I didn't think it could be correct, so I had my SO test out the scale - he was up several lbs! So it must be correct! I celebrated by entering my weight into the tracker. Hurrah!

Excited about the new semester!

Friday, January 21, 2011

We're on the block in my district, which means new classes start next week, and I am PUMPED. This will be the first time that I've taught AP Latin, so I'm a little teensy bit nervous, but I know I'm ready to do it :)

I wasn't excited until I started putting together the powerpoints for the first week of classes, but now that I have, I can't wait!

Who else is super excited about something? Share the good vibes!

You must have started now, how is it going?

I am excited about an introduction to ceramics course my hubby and I are taking this weekend. I'm hoping it will be loads of fun, and something really new and interesting to try. I've been trying to make an effort to try new experiences in life to keep things fun, especially going for those things I've always wanted to try/do but haven't yet.
