Well parts of my day have been unbelievable!

Exercise:

I started my day with a good run out along Murray Street, through the middle of Rocky Point Park and back along the trail to home. It felt like a good run, but nothing amazing. I was just enjoying the crisp fall air and thinking how nice it is to run at that temperature:) I got back to an alert that it was my fastest 4-6km run ever. This was my screen:


Unbelievable! I don’t think I ran a 4:40/km, even the 5:59 requires a stretch of the imagination! I think that when I stopped in the middle of the park to take this picture of the pretty scenery


it screwed up my running program. I will let it stand for now, but I highly doubt this run. Maybe I need to ask around and see what run trackers everyone else uses…

I got a walk in with my running buddy in Mundy Park this afternoon. We did the big loop and kept up a good pace. It is unbelievable how much one person can lift your spirits and make you feel lighter. The walk seemed to fly by as we discussed knitting and everything else under the sun:)

I got some squats and high knees done just before bed, but that’s it for weights today:(

Teaching:

Well I’ve already identified the student I should call on when I want the right answer:) She was away yesterday, but today, she was very handy to have in class!  It was a good day with my students today! I need to remember to plan less and take my time with each activity. The students and I both have a better day and get less frustrated this way. There’s just so much to get through that I always feel like I need to rush. This class is quite quiet and I find it interesting that for many of them, quiet time is their favourite time of day. I finished the last two sets of duo tangs today so I am officially done all student books! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰ I just had to show off my monthly duo tangs! It’s pretty unbelievable how smiley neat, new duo tangs can make me:)


Eating:

I have been eating way too much and the scale is starting to reflect it. I know it’s because my food isn’t planned out and because I’m just using up what’s in the house so it’s not the best choices:( I need to remember the saying I read a while back, “anyone can work out for an hour a day, true strength is controlling what goes on your plate the other twenty three”. I have a pretty quiet weekend so I’m going to use this weekend to reset my stomach. It won’t be pretty, but I’ll be happier with myself!

I tried my 9 Bean Soup in the crockpot today and ended up just throwing it all in the garbage, so not worth the calories! I threw the rest of the soup mix out too as I think it’s stale. The best part of that soup was the awesome container it came in:)

My running buddy gave me some beans, tomatoes, kale and I umber out of her friend’s garden tonight. I used that kale and my own to make kale chips.  I’m laughing because I picked the first recipe that popped up on Pinterest, which was much simpler than any other recipe I’ve used, and it turned out the best yet!!! It’s unbelievable that the simplest turned out the best! Yum! They’ll make a great after school snack tomorrow. Hmmm maybe they should also be my snack on Saturday too!

Here’s the recipe I used:  http://dish.allrecipes.com/how-to-make-baked-kale-chips/?lnkid=pin11097&crlt.pid=camp.J2kmZ2wzpPxY

Knitting:

I got right to work on my pattern repeat tonight as I have six pattern repeats to do and six days until my parents get home. Hmmm another unbelievable coincidence:). Usually my phone is pretty quiet and I’m a little lonely at night, but tonight there were a flurry of text messages so I only got half a pattern repeat done. Oh well, I’ll enjoy my friends when I get them:) I’ll just have to do a pattern and a half tomorrow!

Well, I just realized I have three meetings tomorrow so I won’t get any breaks, therefore, I need to get to sleep!

Have fun!
