Trying to get through the year

Friday, May 13, 2011

This is the hardest part of a school year. The staff is getting tired but we still have to maintain control, and the students start going crazy. Especially in a school like mine with metal detectors, the students can't go out for lunch or anything, if they leave the building they're not allowed back in unless the truant officer picks them up and brings them back. Yesterday was one of those terrible days, where it's just one thing after the other all day. I was smart, I drove straight home, got into a shower, let everything wash down the drain and I wound up falling asleep for 5 solid hours. Woke up around 9pm had a lite supper and fell back asleep around 11pm and slept like a rock right through to the 5:30am alarm. Guess my brain needed the break.

The extra stress isn't making me eat bad though. In fact, I've felt the need to eat better just to feel clean inside. I haven't been working out much. When I get myself motivated on that I want to alternate bike riding and weight training now that the weather is nice and I want to do it soon, because I know as soon as I start up again I'll be annoyed I didn't start sooner. I've started to get such lovely definition in my quads from coaching volleyball, imagine after the first month of bike riding. I'll set a simple goal of 60miles per week, that's 3 quick rides I have to get in. The other 2 or 3 days I need to weight train and rest on the 1 or 2 days left over. If I'm at 159lbs now...imagine after the first MONTH of that plan what I'll start looking like?!

Being so close to my goal has really sent my self-esteem and my mood through the roof. I'm starting to like pictures of myself, so I'm starting to take them again and even send some to my new gentleman friend. He's already convinced I'm the prettiest girl he's ever seen. I like how things are going, it's been a lovely courtship so far. Two things to remember, take it slow and keep an open mind.

I have to leave for work soon and I'm glad it's Friday. I should ride my bike, but then I've said that every day this week...after work the weather has been perfect for a ride and I haven't gone. I'll try to maintain the motivation later. Have a great day everyone.
