Maybe it's my profession..but I'm taking it personal- not literally!

Friday, July 15, 2011

As the team leader for of Pretty Girls Team, I scrolled through the members and realized how many of my sorority sisters are MIA. Maybe it's because I'm a teacher or perhaps it's because I am always wishing the best for EVERYONE. I am a bit disappointed and want to bring my precious pearls back. So if you hear me out there pretty girls....Come back!!!

    You can lead a camel to water, but you can't make them drink or drink for them.

You are an inspiration to many. Keep doing what you are doing.

    Soror, just keep on doing what you are doing. I have the same issues with my team as well. I just try to continue to keep myself motivated and keep those motivated who desire to participate. The rest is out of our control.

You are doing a fantastic job and don't forget it! MUAH emoticon

So it's been a minute since I emoticon on the beach.
Perhaps the left knee feels as if it should have done something different.
Should I have consulted with her first???
So now she wants to wine and complain, "Hey heifer! Why ya gotta put so much stress on me? Can we just sit and watch the seagulls? Ya right one has always got to be right! I like to have my own agenda sometimes. You know how it is!"

ME: Look! We've been throough this already! When you keep pressuring me to slow down, I want to emoticon This could put me in emoticon of not maintaining. Haven't we worked hard to get fit and trim?

Left knee: Okay. Just let me relax now and I'll try to behave tomorrow during strength

ME: emoticon

Right knee: Don't trust her!

Bringing Out the Best In Others

Saturday, July 02, 2011

"The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own." - Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman)

After reading this quote, I thought about how this truly applies to me (especially being a teacher). We should all strive to inspire those who have potential (we all do) so that not only does the next person gain an appreciation for untapped talents, but we feel good knowing that we were inspiration for others' successs.
Feels good doing this on a daily basis. emoticon

    From one teacher to another, you are so right! Inside the classroom that quote is easy to live by. However, I know that I could do better living it outside the classroom!

Traveling from Orlando to Philly...tracking???

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Since I planned to keep track of my calories and fitness MOST of the trip, I just knew I'd do better...wrong! I have eaten myself into oblivion for no reason whatsoever! Dayum shame...

So I have decided to step up my fitness a notch or two. I certainly will not beat myself up about it nevertheless.

Orlando was my family reunion trip...earlier today I arrived in Philly for the ISTE conference (technology "work-related" conference).

    Hey, all you can do is start from TODAY. I am proud that you at least attempted to keep track of what foods you were eating. And, you didn't go into the mindless eating spell.

So, although things didn't go completely as planned, you planned to WIN and that is a W by anybody's estimate.

Keep up the good work momma.

    Family Reunion, really you thought you could track all that home cooked food. Even if you tired honey you would probably be wrong, you know there is always a pinch of this, and a pinch of that in those meals. You are right all you can do is step up the workouts. Maybe a brisk walk in the morning and evening could do the trick. Don't worry about what you eat when you travel just do the best you can and get back on track when you return, part of traveling is enjoying the food! Enjoy life you only live once! emoticon

    Keep positive! Summers are the hardest for me just for this reason. Reunions, work trips, family trips.....I plan to be good and know what I want to do, but often my will power is too weak. But we pick our selves up and dust off and move forward again. Keep working at it and stay upbeat!

    I was noticing this morning all my SparkFriends having mentions that they have lost more pounds. I told my husband, "I'm not going to lose any after the way I've been eating!" I guess we just have times of our lives when it's harder than others. Traveling is definitely one of those times. You'll be eating right again in no time!

Tired & Energetic at the same time...Hmmm!

Monday, June 20, 2011

Staring at the screen...
Giving students busywork...(somewhat)
Aching hamstrings...
Hungry...(wondering why I added hunger after hamstrings?) emoticon
I feel like I can conquer the (weight) world!
But I didn't get the 8 hours of sleep I needed.
Perhaps that is why I'm tired.
Nevertheless I walked & jogged on the beach for 4 miles in 65 minutes.
Since I kicked it up a notch, I feel energetic, but tired. emoticon emoticon
