Back to school

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Teachers return to work tomorrow and students on Monday. I am ready for the routine. I have not been successful in losing weight this summer. More time to workout, but also more time to eat. So many picnics and barbeques! Great fun, but time for it to be over. I do best on a regular routine. I am not looking forward to the 27 mile commute, but I enjoy my job. Hopefully, I can resume my weight loss when I return to work!

    Have a wonderful school year-I'm with ya on the routine part, though. While I hate mornings and my 25 mile commute, I am much more organized with everything, including weight loss, during the school year!

    All the best!

    You are going back early! Yes, being back at work can cut the eating down to more regular eating schedules, but I am glad you got to enjoy picnics and BBQs over the summer. Sometimes the commute is a good thing - unless there is heavy and annoying traffic. I kind of liked it when I had to commute to school - I got focused on my way there, and relaxed on my way home.

    Have a great school year!!!

    You are absolutely right in assuming you lose more weight being on a schedule and having a set routine! I'm retired and I find myself wanting to eat when I would otherwise be in a meeting or out with a client if I were still working, and maybe a little hungry but no time to stop until lunch time! Keep us posted!

    Your students are so lucky to have a teacher who loves her job! Have a wonderful school year!
