WUB Weekly goals update etc

Saturday, June 16, 2012

It has been a stressful week. My work is putting me back on the horrible afternoon shift from 1230- 6:30 Where I don't get to eat until I get home and never get bathroom breaks. They used me to clean the classroom and get it ready for a big evaluation we had this week. As soon as it was over they are closing my classroom due to low enrollment and moving my kids to another room where I work afternoons. YUCK. I am still upset and frustrated by this. I was so happy I was going to see more baseball games and see my other son's football games in the fall.

I did overeat some last night and I should not have. I was doing so good most of the week. I am going for a jog/walk this morning to help clear my head and de-stress.

Here is my goals update

June 2012 Goals

Exercise 500 calories + 6 days a week (don’t just exercise for minutes but make it quality exercise) - I am low one day on this one

Take one active rest day per week - DONE

Do Strength Training 3-4 times a week -- Will do ST today so met this

Eat 6-7 Freggies a day ---done

One day per week allow myself to go over calories by 100 or so. Just to reset my metabolism---
Done last night

Less Snacking after dinner. Limit to one snack--- getting better at this but still need to work on it

Apply for at least one job per week - DEFINITELY DONE --The biggest motivator to find a new job is having a crappy one right now!

    Great goals!! I always love reading them. I was curious as to what group you belong to that you set weekly goals?? It seems I remember reading that long ago and just can't remember. It seems like a great idea so that you stay focused.

    Sorry about your shift at work! Keep your head up!

    Everyone is working longer hours and earning less. You'll find a teaching job soon, just stick to the plan and keep sending out those resumes! Follow up with phone calls and see if they'll meet with you just in case an opening comes up on short notice.

    On the positive side it will be cooler in the am for exercise! Teachers seem to be getting shafted everywhere. My paycheck is now lower than what it was 5 years ago due to furlough days and an increase in healthcare deductibles. Hang in there Karen it will get better. emoticon

    I'm really sorry about your job! How frustrating :( Any chance they'll move you back when the end of summer comes? Maybe more kids will enroll closer to school?
    You're doing pretty well on your goals! Keep up the good work :)
