Day 63: The Real ME and the New School Year
Monday, August 12, 2013
Okay. I am psyched for the new school year. I have a new attitude and have made some progress this summer on my Real ME journey. This last week has thrown me for a loop. I ate too many calories and had to do so many errands for my oldest's return to college. So much of it required money and eating out. I hate weeks like that. One day is bad enough, but a whole week of it is awful.
Anyway, today will be the start of moving into another chapter. Work is added to the schedule. My youngest and I are ready to exercise when I return from school. I sure hope I can be as gung ho to do that in the pm as I was in the am. Afternoons tend to make me feel tired and not wanting to exercise.
I used to be able to exercise before work, but I would have to get up around 4:30am to get my Spark Coach completed, exercise done, breakfast, time with God, shower and dressed. I do not think I can go to bed at 8:00 pm again. But as I see how the afternoon workout schedule progresses, I may have to fall back to that plan. I hope I do not because I like working out with Lindsey and, sad to say, I am not sure she will workout if I am not there to push her.
Anyway, I will start the day with the annual Welcome Back meeting. And as always, the Blood Pathogen video. UGH! I never understood why we had to watch the same video year after year. I would rather take a test to see if I need to watch it instead. Isn't that what we do for our students?
As I begin this new year, I will remind myself that I need to stick to the menu, be as active as possible, and only speak words of encouragement and joy. Jesus does not want me to complain to anyone. I am lucky to have a job. I work for a fantastic principal and this year will be the year of miracles! I can feel it.
So here's to the new year! I am optimistic and hopeful!
