It's All Just Ups and Downs

Friday, May 10, 2013

This morning I was going to write a blog and then I got distracted...

By happenstance, this will be quite a more cheerful blog.

Out of curiousity, I weighed myself every day this week. I was wondering if maybe I weighed more on certain days or because of stress or anything. Anyway, when I weighed myself today I was a wopping 3.7 pounds higher than yesterday. This might have been because I basically ate only pizza yesterday which has a lot of sodium and it could be water weight. I don't think I can gain that much overnight. So I will weigh myself for the challenge tomorrow morning instead and just make sure I drink enough water today.

I spent the morning sitting on my back porch, drinking coffee and watching my kitten race around the backyard. He loves catching those little cotton fairies!

Then, just now, I had my last meeting with my last student of my first semester. He also happens to be one of my favorites. He has really shown so much amazing progress in the past four months and he is just so nice to have in class. He's always got such a nice smile and a good attitude. He asked me for a letter of reccomendation for one of his scholarship letters and I totally made it amazing, haha! Anyway, he gave me a thank you card before he left. I was all smiling and chuckling as he was leaving but I'll admit I let a few tears loose.

Some of the things he included:

"I enjoyed coming to your class and you made the class fun."
"You helped me out in a big way and gave me the confidence to, for once, do well in school and to graduate..."

"I could say I never had a favorite teacher, but I'm proud to say you're the first."

That sucker's going on the wall, for sure. =')

    Wow, what wonderful comments from your students!! You must have really made a difference with that kid, which means you must be a really carding and dedicated and GOOD teacher. Thank you for that. :)

As for the weight gain - yeah that's totally sodium-fueled water retention. And don't be discouraged if it takes a few days to go back down. It always takes me a few days before I lose all the water weight after eating out somewhere. Pizza would definitely do that! But mmmmm it's so tasty. :)
