Summer Day 1...ding! ding! ding!
Saturday, June 22, 2013
Did anyone else hear that bell! I could have sworn I did when I stepped on the scale and BAM...I am almost at 200 pounds. I have to do something. So, I am starting now that my exams and grades are done until September. I plan on spending this summer having loads of fun with my kids, rewriting my lesson plans and curricula, and taking care of me a little bit. The plan is to run/walk/jog 3 miles every morning...something I would never have the chance to do during the school year when I leave for school at 5:30 am. So every day I'll check in to see if I accomplish this...
1. Walk/jog/run 3 miles Monday through Friday.
2. Stay away from as much temptation as possible.
3. Be proud and strong. :)
Yesterday was Day 1 of summer. I ate pretty well considering I was at my daughter's end of year softball party surrounded by creamy dips, alcohol, and pizza. I didn't run but I plan on beginning that this coming Monday anyway.
About yesterday...the party was really hard. I really didn't know any of the adults well and they are all buddies. It felt very awkward to sit around a table with a bunch of ladies who were talking about their summer softball league, get togethers they plan with one another, and taking photos together. I felt like a complete wall flower. Normally that would be time to drum up some creamy spinach dip and dive in...I didn't! Yay me. I sat there for over 4 hours to let my kids have a good time and then took my leave. I wish I had friends to hang with like they do but shyness is difficult to overcome. Don't get me wrong, they were very sweet and did talk to me but I was definitely the third wheel.
Today's plan is to dive into my garden this morning and then come inside and begin "spring cleaning." As a teacher this first week out of school is when I get caught up on the house. So , look out weeds and dust bunnies,, here I come!
