Taryn is my name and procrastination is my game. I don't know how I blew the weekend away without getting done what I wanted to get done. I am going to be in so much trouble when Basil comes next week. My record of teaching is definitely lacking. As for my lessons, I am flying by the seat of my pants. NOT GOOD!!!! How in the world can I get my head together? As far as having things together for class, I am fine, but the other stuff like lesson plan reflections, and school plan and layout, teaching philosophy and stuff like that are simply not included at all. I really hate the stress of leaving things last minute but that seems to be the only motivation I have to bust my butt lately.
On another note, I met another milestone with weight loss and finally hit 260. I knew I was close to 260, it was just hovering over it for the whole week and this morning it went under the line. I am going to hold my next award until I get home. I think it will my either my grad ring or grad pictures since I did not have the money to order them yet. I will wait until I actually graduate and earn a few more pay checks before ordering but until I have the money, I will bank the rewards. This was supposed to be a new outfit for 10 lbs but I don't think I really need that now. Today I also started counting my calories and was surprised that I remained within my target despite the fact that I had a 1/2 order of chicken fettuccine alfredo left over from yesterday's excursion and a whole serving of Boston Pizza's chocolate explosion which was barely under 900 calories. I really don't know why I haven't been tracking before. It's not that hard. Anyway. I must keep it up. But first I MUST get that record of teaching binder in order for next week's observation. Two more weeks to worry about reports for UPEI and three more weeks in the classroom. Plus my all encompassing reflection of practicum at the end and I am done. It's all going by so fast.
