Day 51 - Off to school

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

Another Tuesday in the books for me, literally.

It was my normal all day working at a childs school day.... I am plum tuckered out!! Today was my day at my sons school... working and playing with all the kindergartners to second graders. It makes my day, when the first thing that happens when I get to my sons class is 23 kindergartners running up to me to give me hugs and high fives... ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS!! I am so attached to all of them, and I love every minute of being with them. Unfortunately, I only get about 2 hours total with them out of my 7 hour work day, but i cherish every minute I get. Between helping them with crafts, having them read to me, playing at recess with them and having lunch with them, it truly is a very rewarding experience every week. It's like having 23 more kids two days a month. The only draw back is having to eat school lunches, because my kids say I have to eat what they eat. Chicken nuggets are not my favorite thing to eat, but at least these are baked and not fried. I always get lots of fruit and veggies too, so that's a plus. One thing I am very proud of myself for.... I walked into the staff break room this morning and it was not a pretty sight..... on the table, there is two veggie trays, not bad.... it was what else was there that made me nauseous! There was a giant, costco sized double layered white cake with filling and 25 tons of sugary frosting and a HUGE platter of holiday cookies! A couple months ago, I probably would've cut off a piece of that cake or nibbled on some of them cookies.... TODAY I ATE SOME VEGGIES!!! emoticon

As far as fitness today, not a problem!! I logged 12 miles on my feet, I did 40 squats instead of 35 on my challenge and I did my 50 wall pushups from the other challenge this month!! My nutrition was really good today, my calories were higher than I would like on the day before weigh in, but not even close to my high range, so no complaints.

I also managed to have a minor victory today... for our anniversary in May, I got a nice silver ring with a black onyx in the middle of it in the biggest size I could get, a size 12..... It didn't even come close to fitting any of my fingers except for being too big for my pinky.... Just for giggles, this evening I tried to put it on my right ring finger....IT FITS!!!!!!!

Tomorrow, it's back to the gym for another butt whoopin!! I will also blog my weigh in. Have a great night all!!
