Staying strong through the stress.
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
It's not the best time to be a teacher, especially in Pennsylvania. School districts are losing funding from the state, and this means that jobs are being cut left and right. My district is going through a really rough patch right now - there are a lot of people who are most likely going to be without a job next year, and I'm terrified that I'm going to be one of them. It's really easy for me to tell other people "you can spend the same time worrying or being positive, blah blah..." but it's hard for me to follow the same advice. And hubs has assured me that we will be fine whatever happens, but I can't help but worry. Sigh.
So I guess in the midst of all this, I should be continually thinking of what I'm thankful for, and the good things in my life.
- I am sticking to a workout schedule.
- Brad is very supportive, and he's been keeping me fed with healthy meals. I have to admit, tonight I really felt lazy about cooking and I ate cereal. But I still entered in all my food, and I managed to stay within my calories today.
- I'm feeling strong and good about myself. This Mudder training is really building some muscle, and I feel super strong.
- Tomorrow I am meeting my bestie for dinner. It will be so nice to go out... I seriously need to relax.
And with that, I'm off to take a hot bath!
