Over whelmed with Back to schoool! But liking Sparkcoach

Sunday, September 09, 2012

I love my daughter. But truth be know for a child of two teachers she was really born at the wrong time!!! Which makes this time of year even more stressful.
As a mother I feel the importance to take time out of my busy schedule to make sure she has a nice birthday. Her birthday also brings my favorite family member into town every year. My uncle! And Like me my uncle is a Huge Disney fan. So when he is out every thing stops and we go to Disneyland.
Now there was a bit of a difference this year. I did not get so stressed out! I had everything planned very well. So by the time my uncle did come out I was able to enjoy our time together. And we had a blast!!! I actually felt like I had been on a week vacation rather than just three days. But it was so much fun that I did not feel that stressed when it was time to get ready for my first week back to school. I was able to get my daughters back to school shopping done, set up my room and even clean off three new (used) book cases for my daughters new rooms that we redid this summer.
During the week I had a great week it was busy and long days! But I was more relaxed then ever!
The down side is I had to take a little break from spark and I did catch a little bug that seemed to have just lasted a day.
So my bug that I had thankfully only lasted 24 hours. And today I went to set up my classroom for next week and to double check I am prepped for the following week as well. I am really trying to stay a minimum of two week ahead of schedule.
Then when I got home today I decided to try two new recipes for sparkpeople. And let me say I am not a COOK. But today my Daughter said I could win on a Foodnetwork show!!
In the back of my mind I was already planning my schedule tomorrow to add back sparkpeople and start working out at least ten minutes again! as well as starting to checking to spark coach again. But then I decided what the heck I am going to check in now. And to my surprise the lesson was getting back on track. I have to say I am not sure if day 21 is just about getting back on track or because spark coach knew I had been away that was the lesson it gave me. But either way, it really sparked me. Because in the video today Nicole, gave some suggestions about getting back on track and I had already done a couple of them. Which powered me with a feeling of I have this all under control.

So I am really looking forward to a great school year. I have a really great class. And I am really looking forward to continuing spark coach! This is the first time I have had to take a break and I came back excited and feeling good about my self instead of feeling like a failure!

    Wonderful changes! So glad you had a good time with your uncle. I know how much you enjoy his visits. I had to laugh - with both of us teachers and DH's parents teachers/principals (plus his sister is a teacher and his brother was a coach), we tried to have our kids in spring, but the first 2 pregancies were both due at the beginning of November. Only my youngest "cooperated," but then he had me on bed rest for 6 months, so there went the school year anyway. Funny how that happens!
