Okay, I'll start with the bad news. Today was my 2-week SparkPeople checkup, and I am up almost 2 pounds. This maintenance thing will take some work, I think. I know my calorie ranges are higher now, but I guess I overdid it a bit. I need to start tracking again so that I get a feel for what my new calorie range feels like.
Now, for the good news. Remember I posted a few weeks ago about the algebra class that my son was not accepted into for 8th grade? Well, the principal called me today and she has decided to let a few more kids into the program, and he is one of them! I am so happy, because he really, really needs this challenge. I know it will be an adjustment for him because he is used to skating through, but it is an adjustment that he needs to make. I am so glad that I spoke with the principal about my concerns. Conversations like that make me really nervous so I often avoid them. But I pushed through and did it, and the best part is that I was heard and respected! This is a good day!
