Aug 31- Reflection and Sharing

Saturday, August 31, 2013

So as many have known from my blogs or chats on groups- this summer really has not been a summer- I have taken professional development courses, taught summer school, took more courses, did planning time with my team, went to school and worked for hours on things, and spent lots of money on the classroom. I have also spent money on starting to take even better care of myself- via joining a gym, preparing to sell things (and subsequently doing so), getting a trainer twice a week, and trying to eat healthier. Some of these things worked well, some not so great- they fluctuated a lot! But I am seeing results albeit small they are there!

This weekend is the final "summer" break I get before kids start on Tuesday. I went to the gym this morning followed by spending another 7+ hours in my classroom (I hope it is ready for the kids!). I then spent some time with the hubby- I feel like I have neglected him most of the summer. Tomorrow is double date day- I made sure that I scheduled it during the time I could've gone back to school, but I have to say no! We are going shopping with friends for a couple items and then it is time for a nice lunch and possibly a walk, depending on the weather. Monday may be a day I finish my projects and say- it is finished and pray that I can fall asleep before midnight (first days always kill my sleep habits!)

Now, for sharing before I make new goals. I had lots of friends hearing all about my classroom and things I bought for it. So here is the big reveal! I will show great before and after pics so you can see what I did :)

Now for my reveal!!! After hours of moving, hanging, burning myself on glue guns, spending lots of money, and more: (And yes I know they are upside down :( I am working on fixing them!)

I hope you enjoy! The kids on Friday's open house that came were ooohing and aaaahhhing :)

Now goals for September:
Cut back to 5 sodas a week!!!
Workout at the gym at least 5 days a week!
Track my food daily!
Check in with my teams daily!
Write a weekly blog entry!
Take time for me everyday!
Lost between 5 - 8 lbs this month!

Have a great weekend all!!!

    I LOVE the new classroom. So much more colorful and 'homey' looking. I'm sure the kids love it, too.

    Good luck on your goals for this month!

    Nice job on your classroom. You have obviously put a lot of time and probably money as well into it and it shows. I am glad you are seeing progress. emoticon emoticon on having a date with your hubby before the craziness begins. I love all of your goals and I wish you the best of success in achieving them with the busyness of the month for you! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
