Fitness Friday #10 (a day late again)


Dear Bathroom Scale,
It has been a long hard week.  I'm surprised I've made it through it alive. My class is insane (11 Kindergartners, 1 first grader, 4 second graders, 2 third graders- most with special needs of one variety or another), plus I lost one of my long-time students on Monday.  His viewing was last night and his funeral is today.  He was only 9 years old. I don't remember what I ate yesterday much less at the beginning of the week, but I tried to pack only healthy things for lunch.  I think I may have skipped a few meals accidentally.  Please be patient with me.
Your Friend,


I lost quite a bit and got down into the 180's, which is good, but the stressed out way isn't at all the way I had hoped to lose it.

Last Week's Goals/Results:

Continue to bring healthy lunch/snacks to school.  I did, but I don't think I ate it every day. And I know I found the bowl of ice cream in the fridge in the teachers lounge a few times.

Eat a healthy dinner even though Hubby will be away for most dinners this week. Bleh.  I didn't eat at all last night after the viewing, and I know one night all I had was a chocolate Pop-Tart.

Get in my runs and cross training.  I managed to get in one run and 2 days of cross training.
Add in the push ups. They are pathetic..but they were there :)

TAKE MY VITAMINS :(  nope, not even once.  I think I need to pack them into my lunch.  Maybe then I will remember them?
Drink 64 oz of water a day. Yes, I know i did this :)

This Week's Goals:

  • Survive
  • get in at least 4 workouts
  • survive
  • make a meal plan and stick to it
  • survive
  • pack my vitamins into my lunch
  • survive
Currently Reading:
The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan - The 3rd book in the Percy Jackson series. 

 I added this category this week (and may from now on) because along with running, reading is a huge stress reliever so I have tried to make time each day to read something that I want to, just for fun :)

Hooray for making it below 190! Though I agree that stress isn't the way you'd hoped to get there. :( I think it's a great idea to include something fun to read in your list of goals for the week. And also a great idea to pack the vitamins into your lunch... or put them next to your toothbrush so you take them when you brush your teeth.

My goals for this next week... blog, blog, and more blog. And study Czech from 9-12am each day to make my 18 hour goal for the week. We'll see how it goes!

It's weird, sometimes I eat better when my husband isn't around. He has such a sweet tooth, it's a terrible distraction!
