Suck it up, Buttercup.

Yeah, yeah, I'm a whiner. Seriously, I had Oreos and potato chips for dinner last night. Thank goodness I can find the humor in it today.
So what's going well?
* New semester started today, and my 8th-grade classes are off to a lovely start! In fact, as I compare to the noise level and work completion occurring in the other classes, I'm feeling very solid that my students are getting a top-notch, valuable, respectful experience.
* Family is healthy and happy. One is behind on homework; life lesson on missing recess probably occurred today.
What's not going well?
* Lack of a plan for meals and workouts is leading to binge-eating and laziness.
The coach side of me considers and responds, "Looks like you'll need some me-time each evening to plan out the next day. Is that feasible?"
Coach-me: Let's start with tonight. What's for dinner?
Coach-me: You have spaghetti fixings ready -- and salad fixings as well! That's set. Now, how about the workout?
Lazy-me: Yeah, well...I'm waiting for Season 4 of Breaking Bad to come in to the library...
Coach-me: Luckily, it's pretty warm in Wisconsin right now. I bet that German Shepherd of yours would like a walk. You can go right after work and be done before dinner.
See, that's all I need. A split personality internal coach!
