It's been a rough week...

Friday, March 26, 2010      6 comments

I know I can always count on you guys to make me feel like I know what I'm doing. I appreciate all the comments on my blog yesterday about my sick day. This week I haven't been Sparking as much (I don't know why, I just haven't) and I can ... Read more

What a difference a day makes...

Thursday, March 25, 2010      7 comments

Yesterday I was a mess. Runny and stuffy nose (I will never know how this can happen at the same time), watery eyes, sore throat... nasty cold stuff. Took a day off to get better and today I feel almost 100%. When I started teaching, I didn'... Read more

Now I know what a bear feels like.

A bear in hibernation, that is. I came home from school yesterday, took a hot bath because I was FREEZING and then slept. Woke up to eat a little dinner, then slept some more. Went upstairs, took out my contacts, and slept. Got up this morni... Read more

Helloooooo shoulders.

When I started with my personal trainer, I told her I wanted some serious arms. Not those little wimpy arms, but arms with muscles. So she set me up on a circuit with push-ups, planks, planks with one arm rows (holy lat muscles), tricep dips o... Read more

Rest Day (phew!)

Sunday, March 21, 2010      2 comments

For being a rest day, I sure got a lot done! Honey and I did the grocery shopping, went to the hardware store, washed some windows, went for a nice leisurely walk around our neighborhood, and watched some Kitchen Nightmares and Star Trek from t... Read more

Short for Saturday

Saturday, March 20, 2010      5 comments

This morning I ran, I did Pilates, and I got a lot done from my to-do list. Went shopping, got some new sunglasses (it's been on my list for WEEKS), packed up the winter hats and scarves, and vacuumed downstairs. I didn't do as much cleaning a... Read more

I'm feeling thankful today.

Friday, March 19, 2010      11 comments

Within the last week or two, there has been sort of a "dark cloud" over my school. Deaths in families, mysterious illnesses, divorce... one of my colleagues and I both said that we're a little afraid to ask how anyone is anymore. Because o... Read more

In a Spring-y good mood!

Thursday, March 18, 2010      6 comments

Today was an especially good day for my organization skills. I had a 6:00 appointment with my trainer, then school, then a coffee meeting, then a short TM run, and then a class - "Butts and Guts." Phew! I had a lot to pack today! Clothes for... Read more

Happy O'Wednesday!

Wednesday, March 17, 2010      4 comments

St. Patrick's Day at an elementary school is fun. We have one kindergarten teacher who has his kids wear hats with their names "Irish-ised" like "O'Vanessa," "McSerenity..." it's very fun and I always get a kick out of it. Last night was ... Read more

Still adjusting to DST!

Tuesday, March 16, 2010      3 comments

Last week at this time it was perfectly sunny... I have to get used to this time change. Did I meet my goals from yesterday? Water - YES Quiz - YES Clothes for week? - no. It's so hard for me to want to do anything away from my ... Read more

TGI Rest Day!

Monday, March 15, 2010      5 comments

I had this as a blog title before, but it's so appropriate. This weekend was just full of going out to eat! Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and then again last night with honey. We went to this little (I mean, really little - only 20 se... Read more

Lead Legs

Saturday, March 13, 2010      5 comments

The good news is that I got my 12 minute TM run in with NO pain yesterday. Wahoo! I am taking a cue from a Spark Buddy (thanks Mike!) and training smart, not pushing too hard too fast. I warmed up for about nine minutes (two songs from my pla... Read more

Weekly wrap-up

Friday, March 12, 2010      8 comments

I set some new goals for myself this week, and I think I did well with them. I got lots of school work done, I limited my sweets, and I didn't miss a workout. Yippee! Looks like I'll be getting those new headphones this weekend. This mor... Read more

The adult decision.

Thursday, March 11, 2010      1 comments

In today's morning blog I wrote about how I had to be an adult about an incident at school. Bleh. After much consideration and conversation with a couple colleagues, I have decided to bring up the incident with my student very generically - ab... Read more

I'm a real teacher!

Thursday, March 11, 2010      9 comments

This is my 4th year teaching, and this week gave me confirmation that I am a real teacher. I have a student coming in to do field work. Yippee! But now not only do I have to be a real teacher, I have to be a real adult. There was an incident... Read more
