Day 63: The Real ME and the New School Year

Monday, August 12, 2013

Okay. I am psyched for the new school year. I have a new attitude and have made some progress this summer on my Real ME journey. This last week has thrown me for a loop. I ate too many calories and had to do so many errands for my oldest's return to college. So much of it required money and eating out. I hate weeks like that. One day is bad enough, but a whole week of it is awful.

Anyway, today will be the start of moving into another chapter. Work is added to the schedule. My youngest and I are ready to exercise when I return from school. I sure hope I can be as gung ho to do that in the pm as I was in the am. Afternoons tend to make me feel tired and not wanting to exercise.

I used to be able to exercise before work, but I would have to get up around 4:30am to get my Spark Coach completed, exercise done, breakfast, time with God, shower and dressed. I do not think I can go to bed at 8:00 pm again. But as I see how the afternoon workout schedule progresses, I may have to fall back to that plan. I hope I do not because I like working out with Lindsey and, sad to say, I am not sure she will workout if I am not there to push her.

Anyway, I will start the day with the annual Welcome Back meeting. And as always, the Blood Pathogen video. UGH! I never understood why we had to watch the same video year after year. I would rather take a test to see if I need to watch it instead. Isn't that what we do for our students?

As I begin this new year, I will remind myself that I need to stick to the menu, be as active as possible, and only speak words of encouragement and joy. Jesus does not want me to complain to anyone. I am lucky to have a job. I work for a fantastic principal and this year will be the year of miracles! I can feel it.

So here's to the new year! I am optimistic and hopeful!

    I know what you mean about the exercise. Maybe this is.a situation wher eyou will have to fake it til you make it. Just do the exercise no matter how tired you feel, and in a couple of weeks it will be second nature and you will be able to keep on.
