Another New Beginning

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Tomorrow is the first day back to school, with the kiddos. I am hoping that our new Principle does what he says & carries through. I’m hoping that I can capture my kids attention through some not so exciting classes and they learn something that helps them. I’m hoping that we can get through another yearbook production and not have the errors we had last year, and actually have fun. I’m hoping there isn’t too much drama between the faculty/staff and even less among the students!

I also plan to pay better attention to what I put into my body. I lost about 5 pounds when they removed the golf-ball sized fibroid, now to lose 12 more by February, per my Dr.. It shouldn’t be too hard, especially since I’ll be on a regular schedule again. Up the protein intake, lower the (bad) carbs and I should be good. My biggest problem is when I get home in the evening (4:30 - 5:30). I want to eat everything in sight. I need to have a plan and I’m not sure if it’s starting dinner right-away or if it’s get a snack. I guess my first choice should be to GET A SNACK which will help my goal of eating 2 fruits/veggies a day. The goals for the week (set on SparkPeople) are:

1. Stretch for 5 minutes each day : 1x / day
2. Eat 2 fruits or veggies each day : 1x / day
3. Write in a journal 3 times per week : 1x / day

    I teach as well, and I find that if I don't have a snack after school, I will buy all sorts of bad stuff when I stop at the store. A banana carries me over til supper, in the morning I have an apple at recess. You're right - it's an easy way to get a couple more fruit in!

    Good luck with your new group - mine come back next week. Teacher days start tomorrow!
