September hurts.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Aah, back to school time. I had a wonderful summer. Although I accomplished very little, I felt rested and ready to return to school. ...Then the little darlings walked through my classroom door. I think I will have a great class, when they get settled in. Right now, we're struggling with the whole listening and following directions thing. I mean, why do you need to do what your teacher says? Why can't 16 kids do what they want when they want how they want?

I took last week off from exercising. It was the first week of school. Besides not coming home until it was almost dark, I was absolutely and completely exhausted. This week I'm still exhausted, but I'm adament about getting myself into a healthy school year routine. The pounds I lost this summer are going to stay GONE!

My downfall in the 5 days I've worked so far? After school snacking. I don't know what it is about 3:30, but I'm always starving the second those busses pull out of the parking lot. And once I start... I can't stop. I bring healthy snacks from home, but the kids' candy jar just screams out at me. I have made this my goal to consciously work towards: I am not going to binge-snack after school. If I am hungry, I will have 1 snack. That's all. If I'm not hungry, I will have no snack.

    16 kids!?!!! That's pretty nice! I did force myself to go for a run today. I'm thinking if I want to get my exercise in, it's going to have to be in the morning. Then I don't have to worry about it after school. Good luck on the afternoon snacking, you can do it!
