2013 Day 17


Friday, January 18, 2013

Well, I made it through Thursday. I only have to make it through one more day and then it's a 3 day weekend! I am just counting the days until April 7. Then prom will be over and all I will have left to do as class sponsor this year will be to help serve cake and punch at the baccalaureate service in May.

I'm starting to wonder if I've bitten off more than I can chew at work with this remediation class I just started teaching this week. 2 semesters of Algebra 2 crammed into one semester and we started after everyone else was a week and a half into their semester. I hope I can fit everything into the short amount of time we have left

Well, enough about work. Today I became a co-leader for one of my SP groups. There are SO many people in the group and I don't think even 1% of them are active anymore. Granted, it has been a year and I did join up at a time when weight loss resolutions run rampant. But still, when you have 30,000+ members, and only 5 or 6 are posting, it makes me sad to think of all those people who have probably given up.

I am so thankful that I was pointed in the direction of this website just over a year ago. It has changed my outlook on getting healthier. I know I can actually do it with this site and all of my wonderful friends and teammates.

  I see you are new and jumping in with both feet. Good for you. I decided to give SP a try after years of WW and TOPS. I would do well for a few months and quit. With SP I found that there is so much here and a benefit of it being free is pretty awesome.

I have found so many new friends and have learned a lot about myself I never knew. I have slowly developed some habits and the biggest thing is I haven't quit. I had lost about 40 gained back 30 and then bought a Fitbit. I have always hated to exercise and have walked in the past and gotten bored with it Oddly enough Fitbit motivates me.

While working in Kazakhstan I have walked 10000 steps a day and will continue when I get back. I have many friends inside and outside of SP who have joined me in on the internet We are able to see what the others walk and encourage each other.

I got on a scale here and I believe I have lost 25 since being on Fitbit. I will know when I get home.. Hoping to get to Onederland soon.

As far as the teams I have found I have some teams I don't participate in any more. They weren't the right fit. I spend a lot of time on SP so I had to limit the choice. Maybe that is the case for many on your team.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Good luck

    Jenn, a few sayings:

'We are never given more than we can handle at any given time'
'You ARE always in the right place at the right time'
'Life is full of surprises'

Looking forward to working with you to make our team a positive and a very active team. We all joined at the same time and we are all looking forward to our prom night.

    Algebra!

I so loved algebra. To me it was a puzzle to be solved. And when the boys were taking it in High school. I couldn't wait to help them with their homework.
