Not too bad a day:)
I got out of the staff meeting a little early and so got to get home in time for a run:). I was a little slow starting, but just made a 6:58 average when my phone died. I stopped running 😂. I find it so hard to keep running when my phone isn’t recording- does a run count if it’s not recorded??😂
I also got a quick workout in this evening. It was Russian twists, lunges, jump squats, squats, hand release push ups, and sit ups. I had to push it as I ate way too many treats at staff meeting:(
I’m sitting here tonight trying to decide what to do about my exercise tomorrow. I have a massage at 3:30 and usually I try to enjoy my food feeling body for 24 hours with no exercise, but Tuesday night is my run clinic night. Do you see my conundrum? Do I run in the morning and then not run tomorrow night or do I take the day off of exercise or do I have my massage and then run anyways?
I got to the end of the day and realized we had done absolutely no actual work today!!! Oh my! What kind of teacher am I? We had gymnastics first thing, then a fire drill, recess, music class, calendar, lunch, Planners, Silent Reading, and buddies. I suppose I could have had them do a journal after buddies, but getting a six year old to sit down and write at 2pm, yeah right! We’ll have to make up for this with double the work tomorrow!!!
We had staff meeting after school today which is my least favourite day of the month! I always overeat on the treats because I’m stuck there with nothing to do with my hands other than put food into my mouth:(. The one good thing is that my principal agreed to shorten the eating time and extend the play time during lunch! Those kids need to run more and they’re running amok with too much time in the classroom once they’re finished eating.
I had David’s Tea Organic Super Ginger Tea today. I have to admit I didn’t like this tea at all:(. It was too gingery for me. I should have kept it for when I had a gluten or dairy attack as maybe it would settle the stomach, but it was just too strong a ginger taste for me.
Well, I have spent way too much time trying to add a contact me page to my blog. I have watched videos and read how-to’s, but it just keeps saying I need to upgrade to a business account to have a contact me page. If anyone can solve this problem – please tell me!
I am probably having so much trouble with this because I am trying to cut down on how much I am eating to get rid of this little extra weight from the holiday. Unfortunately, I get hangry easily so it’s going to be a tough couple of days for me:(
I forgot to tell you all about the cutest bag I saw yesterday. My sister in law says it came in her fab fit fun box. I think I would do anything for that bag:) I have been thinking about getting myself a subscription box. I looked online and there are a ton of them! If anyone has one they like and would recommend, please let me know:)
I’m enjoying Baby It’s Cold Outside by Kait Nolan and I’ll tell you all about it when I finish:)
I took Maureen’s advice and read on my lunch hour. My feet were frozen from recess supervision so I put them up on my portable heater and really felt calmed:). I need to do this more often!
My sister in law knows how much I like to cook so she sent me a cookbook suggestion- says it has lots of gluten free and dairy free recipes. I’ll have to see if I can get it from the library first as I like to try a cookbook out before I buy it. It looks good though:) Knitting:
I’m working away on my sweater, hoping to get it done by the end of the month! It’s not much to look at yet, but I’m liking it so far:)
I also got two more yarns entered into my Ravelry stash. I’m continuing to move forward on this even though I know I’ll never get them all in there. I like how when I click a favourite, Ravelry will tell me if I have any yarn that would work for that pattern! That’s enough incentive to keep my plugging away at my stash.
I was knitting on a scarf out of my leftovers at school today during the second half of lunch. Two of the teachers commented on it and said they’d be interested in knitting. Now I just have to figure out how to sell them on the idea of knit night!!!
I watched The Perfect Christmas Present tonight which was okay, but the leading lady was annoying to me;(
Well, not a really exciting day, but it’s a Monday survived:)
