Begin obsessing

Thursday, August 22, 2013

The kids started school this week. My youngest began her freshman year and it's kind of interesting to hear the middle one giving advice: "let me show you where to go today so tomorrow you don't have to ask the upperclassmen. If you ask them they'll send you across campus thinking it's funny..." Glad to see with as much as they fight, she still has her sister under her wing.

My oldest just received a phone call from Teach for America. It's a program that over 10000 applicants apply to and only about 4000 make it. They give you the credentials to become a teacher, place you on a two year commitment to a lower income city and you teach. I guess in a nutshell, it's a Peace Core for our education system. It's something she's wanted to do for nearly a decade so when they called her and told her she made the first round and to schedule a phone interview. Well, ecstatic might be an understatement.

That's really it. I know, crazy sad. LOL No cheer comps, no dance classes, no classes for ME, and yes, it is hard to get used to. I'm bored. I need something right now and I actually feel kind of dizzy with how stagnant today is.

I think on the bright side, with all this "extra" time, I should focus it on my body. I mean really focus. I've learned the health, the eating, and it's nice but I want tonage. I want a lean body, heck, I want sexy!!!

so, look out world...as soon as I find this motivation which currently is reeling in pain from a Jillian Michael's work out, I'm going to go obsessed.

I'm tired of waiting! I must doooooooo this!

There
I just motivated myself.

    As my kids have gotten older, I've focused on my health. I can tell you it's fabulous. My kids are proud of what I've accomplished and see what can be done with commitment!

Congrats to your daughter on making it through the first round. As a teacher of 22 years, we need new blood and enthusiasm. I taught in a lower socioeconomic school and I loved it. The school I'm in now is heading in that direction, too. The economy is really hurting some families.

Have a great weekend and find some time for you and/or get out and exercise with the kids. emoticon
