Dear Bathroom Scale,
YIKES! This week has been so busy that I have done almost nothing "right." Sorry about that! Please be nice...
I know you've had a hectic week with the start of a new school year and trying to figure out a crazy schedule. You've been stressing and you know that, for you, stressing tends to lead to eating things that are not so good for you. However, Today, I will give you a ....
The Bathroom Scale
Last Week's Goals/Results:
:( Although I did fine with Week 7 of C25K, I am going to repeat it. The reason for this is that I start back to school and will have to run in the hot hot hot Florida summer afternoon sun after work. I want to make sure I am comfortable with what I'm doing. Not only did I not repeat this week, but I haven't run AT ALL. NONE. ZIPPO. ZILCH. NADA! Not even once. I
:( Log 4/7 days. None. Not even once.
:( Take my vitamins. Maybe once. Sigh...
:( Don't let the stress of a new school year get to me this week. HA HA Yeah, that's a funny one...
I managed to maintain my weight this week...but it is honestly a shock to me as I'm not quite sure how I managed to pull that one off THIS week!
This week started pre-planning for the new school year which starts on Monday. I will be teaching in a whole new way using a whole new curriculum, and I'm not always so great with accepting change (that isn't of my design or idea). I understand WHY things had to change, however, I'm not sure I'm loving HOW they changed. Only time will tell...
Because I was stressed this week and VERY busy (I am essentially doing the job of 2 teachers in one), I didn't follow my fitness plan much. I didn't cook at all this week (We are still eating out of our pantry trying to use some of what we have extra) and I went out to lunch DAILY with coworkers, Lunch out wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't chosen the pizza, the hamburger, the enchiladas... but they were SOOOOooo good and it was (what I thought) I needed to feel comfortable for the moment before returning to the chaos. I didn't run because I couldn't find the right time to do so safely (its either too dark or too hot).
This Week's Goals:
- Figure out how to make time to run 3X's a week (Try to do week 7 of C25K)
- Include some Cross Training (push ups, sit ups, and squats) 2-3Xs a week. I don't have to go outside to do these. My living room floor is perfect!
- Take healthy lunch/snacks to work and avoid the snack machine and cafeteria.
- Take my vitamins.
- Drink 64oz of water (or more) a day.
- Enjoy the fresh faces of the students who are eager to learn this year!
