Practicum results

Monday, April 29, 2013

Well, practicum was wonderful. I learned so much and had a great time but it really kicked my ass in the financial and fitness dept. I gained 10-20 lbs every practicum. I usually lost weight during student mode and gained it all back during teacher mode. This last semester, I did not lose a single lb because of the stress so I could not afford to gain any weight. I was so pleased to return home and find that I am 1 lb less than when I left.
Here is how I think I did with my condensed practicum goals:
exercise - on and off
counting cals - not very well
journalling - sometimes
water - not very well
financial tracking - very well
on budget - not well
organized - very well
3 days ahead in lesson plans - not at all

OK. Practicum is over. Time to bring it.

You know you're 80's old school when you thought legwarmers were cool. I definitely did over my stirup pants. Funny thing is that I don't show my 80's pictures and definitely have never told Lavinia what to wear since she was about three years old. I find it so funny that she wears tights and leg warmers. I keep telling her it is so 80's and she thinks it is cool. Of coarse she doesn't dress like that every day but she definitely has her own style.

    Congratulations for the loss. It may not be as much as you would have liked, but you did say that usually you gain during practicum and this time you didn't - that's progress. emoticon
