Survived the First Partial Week Back to Work :)

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Well, this was an almost full week back to work (we were off yesterday for the Jewish holiday.) The most difficult part is feeling like a barely have any time with our daughter. My husband brings her to my mom in the morning and I pick her up after work. I get there about 4:15 pm. By the time we get home, eat dinner, and wash up it is time for her to go to bed!

I am so thankful that she is with my mom though ~ Joe and I both have peace of mind all day rather than being worried and questioning if she is okay all day.

I miss working with middle school students, but I really like the new school I am at and the teachers there are great to work with emoticon

I have not lost anymore weight, but I haven't gained back either ~ AMEN! I have not been able to exercise and that is driving me crazy. I keep setting my alarm clock earlier and our daughter keeps waking up earlier! I am not sure if I can wake up any earlier than 5 am. I am already barely able to stay awake past 9 pm! What a geek emoticon

The evenings are hard for me for a few reasons. First, I have no motivation after work and it is easy for me to tell myself I am too tired. Second, I truly am too tired. Third, I'll have trouble falling asleep if I workout that late. Soooo, I have yet to find a way to get my exercise into my day emoticon I did start the Kettlebell class on Wednesday and I really liked it! That is only one night a week though. My goal right now is to figure out a way to exercise on a regular basis.

    I have to get up at 5:00, too, to be on the road by 6:30 for a 50 minute commute to the school where I teach. I get home late, also because of the commute. Like you, I'm VERY tired when I get home. Also, like you, I'm usually in bed by 9:00. I don't have a little one, though. All my "little ones" are "big ones".
    I'll be praying for you.

    Just hang in there! Once you get used to your new routine you will find ways to work in the exercise. Focus on all the positive things you can do right now that aren't affected by your schedule... like drinking enough water every day.

    I agree with Kid-At-Heart. You're adjusting to a new routine. Once you settle into working, you'll find ways to work in exercising!

    You're so fortunate to have your mom nearby to watch your daughter -- she's a lucky little girl to spend so much time with Grandma! Getting back into the swing of things after a long hiatus is definitely a challenge! Coming back to school after just the summer is hard! Once you find your new groove at work and at home, the exercise routine will come as well. I totally understand the feeling crazy for not being able to exercise -- it'll happen. One day at a time! emoticon
