Well, I lost half a pound this week. I did not exercise like I wanted to. I had a rough week at school which made it difficult for me to exercise.
Tuesday, one of my students sprayed a body spray in my classroom, even though she knows I'm allergic to it. I had an asthma attack that lasted over 2 hours. At one point, I thought I was going to pass out because I couldn't breathe. Then, the next day, at lunch, one of the girls came down doused in some type of spray and I had another bad asthma attack. Then, on Thursday, right before class started that morning, 3 of my students decided to spray on perfume just before they came to class, setting off my asthma again. Thursday afternoon, I went to group when the girls had group at 2:00 and we talked about exactly what sets off my asthma in hopes that they will stop triggering asthma attacks.
Because of the asthma attacks, I did not work out this week. To make a bad week even worse, my desk top computer died on Thursday. My husband is getting a power supply for it today and the battery in my car died on Friday. I spent my lunch hour Friday buying and replacing the battery.
Then, when I returned to work on Friday, I went to the unit to bring my students down to the classroom, and the boys left their unit slightly ahead of us. When they were trying to take 2 boys to class and leave the other 2 on the unit, the 2 that were supposed to be on the unit pushed through the staff in the doorway and ran out into the hall. The staff restrained one of the kids twice. Meanwhile, I was stuck in the girl's unit waiting on the hall to clear so that the girls could come to class. Instead of coming to class at 1:00, as scheduled, we went to the classroom about 1:40. Then, the girls decided they needed to use the restroom and were scattered throughout the halls for a little while. So, instead of letting them get on the computers, as planned, I dragged out a health lesson for an hour. But, I was able to do it in such a way that I didn't really lose the girls' attention.
Then, Saturday, we bought a new car. Well, it's new to us. It's a 1996 Chevy Caprice. It has been garage kept and taken to a dealer every 6 months. We got a really good deal on the car, which is nice because our only car is slowly dying.
Today, I haven't really followed my diet all that well. I started the day off with a bologna sandwich, now I'm having pizza and a small bowl of ice cream. I am going to try to work out today, but I brought a lot of grading home with me and have some work to do for my doctorate degree.
