I really enjoyed my week of training. It was awesome to work with the TEACCH trainers, my fellow participants, and especially the students. I am so glad I talked my colleague into attending with me. We got so many ideas and accomplished a lot of planning together during down-times! I have learned so much and gotten so many great ideas, but I am so exhausted and really need a break!
Yesterday and today, I got in 20 minute walks in the morning before leaving and also walked yesterday during lunch break. Today, I didn't even get to finish my lunch, let alone have time to walk, so I'm glad I got it in before I left. My friend overslept, so I was late from waiting for her then drove down on my own, so I didn't have time to eat breakfast when I got there. I had half my salad for lunch in a rush and had a protein bar around 2:00. My girls were picking fights with each other and me, so I didn't feel like eating at dinner either. They had McDonalds anyway, so I would have eaten at home, but I am really just not hungry at all. Too much stress and too overwhelmed with everything right now. I just hope my low calorie intake doesn't cause my weight to spike back up!
Planning to turn off the alarm clock and sleep in tomorrow, then get started painting the shelves for my classroom. I bought some magnetic paint so I can use the sides and backs of some of the shelves to create activity boards. Hoping the rain holds off so I can get it done!
