Today was my first day back at school; the dreaded teacher in-service. 8 hours of my day was spent sitting on my a** in the elementary library learning about RITs, MAPs, and all of sorts of fantastic acronyms teaching introduces us to. I didn't get home from the school today until 6:00 after I stayed to work on the yearbook. When I finally did head for home, I had to go to the grocery store with my husband to get what we needed for supper. Then, I got supper ready. It wasn't until 8:00 that I was finally able to hit the gym; even then I felt like I didn't get the work out I deserved (cut it short at 35 minutes). When I finished working out, I was finally able to go home and eat supper. So here it is, now 10:35pm. I need to be up in about 6 hours. I'm starting to get a little worried...how am I going to stay motivated when I'm devoting my time to my job again? How do I find an hour to work out between volleyball, yearbook, sporting events, and classes? Why should my waistline suffer so I can excel at my job? I need to find a happy medium. I like that my work clothes fit me again...I like that I have about ten pairs of slacks I can comfortably wear when at the end of last year I was down to two...I like how I'm beginning to feel about myself...I like that my clavicles have made their triumphant return...I like that I FEEL healthy. I need to make a commitment to myself to make the RIGHT decisions over the easy ones.
I can do this.
