TRYING TO GET BACK ON TRACK
Thursday, December 27, 2012
As I blog this morning I will keep this short. I have not blogged for months. I decided the day after X-mas I was going back on the Fat Farm Program. I gained so much weight partly because my schedule at work simply has been a roller coaster. So I decided I have to change the schedule in January but wanted to make it through the Holiday blues stuff first. The good news is that this year I am anything BUT Blue. I had a couple moments as I had everything packed away by 1:30 the day after X-mas. This year I needed it out and with a move sometime in the next year I wanted to make sure it was packed good. As I told my Dad I have no idea when I will open all this again and I might even be in Timbuktu by then.
I was up late but decided with the early news and then the late news I had to at least get something started. SO... it ended up being 100 jumps with the jump rope but I stopped after every 25 to take a break just because I do not want to overload anything Then I did 5 miles on the bike 4 of them VERY easy and one as fast as I could do it. So I tried to at least do something as I could not stand it any longer. My client lent me "Legends of the Fall" which I had not seen in a long time so I was enjoying that as I was biking. TV to watch or listening to music and keep your mind entertained makes a huge difference while exercising unless you are on a real bike riding on REAL trails.
(I'm the Turkey Folks!)
TO many of you who have not heard from me in a while I apologize as the Fall was a total Roller Coaster ride with my work at the School district and I cannot say I have enjoyed it too much but it left VERY little time to even update Sparks like I used to as I was VERY exhausted. My Wednesdays as I may have noted were like 11.08 hours straight through for the whole day. That has to change come late January when new jobs are up and posted. But as I said I decided because we shut down for two weeks moneywise it was better to deal with the pain because January can be quite empty and dark (Talk about Holiday Blues - What about AFTER the holidays??) and it was better to make sure I had as much as I could walk away with for the month.
Lastly I would ask those of you to pray for me as I have my DOT (being that I am in school Transportation) physical this next week and I will probably do fine but not only do I want to get my body back but I need two more years of this before going back to my own school. I had a Very moving experience a week ago Friday as I work with Special Needs kids and the teacher who runs the program at one of the schools asked me and my asst. to join them at the holiday play. I was expecting a small handful of people at this high school but it was an auditorium and it was filled with about 300-500 people. Even the kitchen staff was there for a while watching the kids. Every one of the kids I either transport or take out on that Wed shuttle was involved in the play. I was elated. The work is rewarding in its own way and I want to keep doing it for now. Happy Holidays everyone!
