I'm pooped! I've never done so much gardening in my life! I was outside for about 3 hours weeding, digging a hole, filling in the hole because I uncovered a water pipe for the sprinklers, then digging a new hole. Matt and I planted a mango tree. I don't know if it will survive long, especially since it's supposed to be 102 degrees on Monday, but we'll see. We still have 2 more to plant - a lemon tree and an orange tree. Just in time for Earth Day. I definitely think I have my exercise covered for today!

About a month ago, I found out I have plantar fasciitis, which I can't even pronounce. My poor foot. Today, the dr. gave me a cortizone shot. I'm still losing weight without full workouts, but still, I look longingly at the treadmills. My regular physician gave me a June deadline to lose more and improve my cholestorol levels, so I'm eager to get back to my gym workouts. I just need to take it easy to get my foot to heal (get it!).

Today was the 100th day of school. I survived the biggest classroom party we have all year!! After feeling so sad at the beginning of the week (which lasted 3 days), today had the potential to be the day I broke down and ate double my calories. I only endulged in one gummy bear and 10 M&M's. I caught myself with the candy in my hands and tossed it out! What a miracle

Yep, I'm feeling tired, depressed, stressed out, and upset. Crying, I can't stop crying! . I have a hard time dealing with small changes in my life, even little disruptions to routine. I sound like one of my 5 year old students! Anyway, I keep having to plan for a substitute- one day for training, and 7 days for jury duty. With progress reports and 2 new students that are very low dumped on top, I've lost it. I think I'm really burnt out from working. I didn't even finish my plans for this week, which means I will have to drag myself to work either at 6a.m. or 5:30pm tomorrow to prep for my sub for the rest of the week - 2 more weeks of this crap thanks to jury duty. I don't know how I can handle all this. I'm going to try to go to the gym now. Maybe some alone time with some music will lift my mood.

The scale says I've lost almost 5 lbs. I've had to weight myself on 3 different scales this past week, so I was getting confused. Each scale varied so much. I actually weighed myself 3 days in a row on my home scale to make certain I was going down. It makes sense. I'm making changes - eating better, tracking my foods, trying new recipes, and exercising. I feel stronger. I get to the gym, and I feel like a little puppy who's owner/person has just grabbed the leash to go for a walk. I get so excited!! After only 2 weeks, I've been able to increase my stamina on the treadmill from 20 to 30 minutes, and I can handle a faster pace. In the past, my left knee would get sore. The doctor said it was nothing, just lack of exercise. Now I'm careful to warm up, and I'm not having any soreness YAY me!
