Summer Slipping Away

Sunday, August 05, 2012

It's Week #2 with the orthopedic boot, it is getting better but I can't ride or swim or walk or run until it's completely healed. In 2 weeks, I will go back and get it checked out again, until then I'm taking PT a couple times a week.

The other night I was feeling really down about how everything's been going, and I got to chatting with a guy I met on SP. He was really encouraging and helpful, and I'm working on keeping my goals in front of me, even though I can't really exercise right now. First I'm writing them down every day, even the most tiny of daily goals, and they are all things I can realistically do and control. Like drinking enough water. And getting at least 2 green vegetables into my day. And completing an upper-body ST workout. I can't do much about my foot while it heals, but I don't have to throw away all the goals I have either.

So that's about all I have to say for that at the moment!

I'm excited about school starting up again. My kids are ready to go back, and I'm ready to go back. I have 2 C&I classes (Curriculum & Instruction), 2 Math classes, and one Physics class. It's my last year before I student-teach, and I am so excited! I can't believe it's finally happening. When I was 18, I couldn't have been further from going to college. When I was 30, I couldn't have imagined being in college. Even when I was 40, actually graduating with a degree seemed a really long way off. And now, in less than 2 years, I will be done and hopefully getting a job. I have a lot of friends who are teachers, and many of them have been a huge support for me. I am very fortunate. :)

    There are always ways of exercising - even if it is an arm bike or upper body ST. Keep up the great work - the time it takes to finish your degree will fly by in what seems like moments.

    That's right - upper body! There are still things you can do when your foot is out of commission.

    School - ah. I've been trying to hold on to my summer as long as possible, but also making plans for the coming school year. I've got to get into my classroom to start organizing and decorating.
