It seems an appropriate post title as I do seem to do more exercise on Wednesday than any other day!

Exercise:

I got up this morning for my run again. I thought I was doing exactly what I’ve done the other mornings and yet my app said I did about a quarter kilometer less and much more slowly. Grrrr! Tomorrow night I will do a run after school!

I also did Workout Wednesday at school with the kids. It was only a couple of laps, but better than nothing:)

After school I did L’s bootcamp. It was quite the workout! We did:

Leg drop to hip raise/ alternate dumbbell lateral lunge

Single leg v up to tuck/ uppercuts

Squat with woodchop/ speed skater

Rollout abs/ banded hip bridge

Banded hamstring curls/ banded iso squat lateral walk

Banded squat jumps/ walking pushups

Dumbbell rows/ jump lunges

Spider-Man plank/ goblet squat to Feiffer

Halfway we did two minutes alternating running and skipping, and at the end we did two minutes alternating jumping jacks and high knees

I’ve realized since I’ve come home that I need to exhaust myself more so I don’t feel like working out again!

I did get to Zumba tonight though and got just slightly warm in the middle of the class. Maybe that means I am finally getting some of the moves. Of course I only have two classes left now๐Ÿคฃ

Teaching:

We had a busy day today! This morning we did a butterfly observation and a math sheet about shapes. After recess we had the High Touch High Tech scientist come in and do experiments about force and motion. The children really liked it- I think they liked the catapults best, especially after they convinced me to sit on a stool in front of them to see if they could get the pompoms over my head๐Ÿคฃ

This afternoon we wrote about the science, and released our butterflies. We had two who left immediately and then two others who didn’t want to go at all!

It was kind of hilarious at work today because our kindergarten teacher was away today and we had a make TOC. I got sent down to tell him about workout Wednesday, I got sent down to deliver the core competency assessment booklet to him, and then I got sent down with a note to be left for the regular teacher. Can you tell he was extremely good looking and very personable?!?!๐Ÿคฃ. We actually ended up talking for about a half hour after school. He’s just a very friendly guy:). Yes, I admit I wouldn’t mind having him show up at school again. He’s very easy to talk to and interesting.

Knitting:

I am working away on the baby cardigan and have gotten to the point where I divide for the sleeves and body. I’m sure hoping I can get this done by Tuesday. I had better find some buttons for it this weekend!

Eating:

A so so day.

Breakfast- a ham and cheese one egg omelette and a sausage patty (trying to have a bigger breakfast on the advice of another blogger)

Recess: scone

Lunch: chicken and salad

Snack: 1 serving multigrain corn chips

Dinner: salad and chicken, 2 cookies (thankfully the cookies are gone now)

Not the worst, but not the best.

Well that’s it for me for the day!

Have fun!

  1. wow! I’d say you worked out, which also means you get to eat more! See ti’s all about balance. Or something like that. One year when I did a butterfly release I had one fly back into the net and one land on my hand and not want to fly away. All better than the teacher who had a bird swoop in and eat her butterfly mid take off…

    I hope you got this guy’s contact info! You know in case you need him as a sub for your class sometime or something

    1. I know! Iโ€™ve had a butterfly fly out the window and another that I had to chase around my classroom! I always worry about there being birds!

  2. Sounds like a great day! Thanks for sharing your butterfly picture – they are so beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚ And hey, cute guy showing up isn’t too shabby either!

  3. What a busy, but fun day!!! Excited to see how your baby cardigan turns out- it sounds adorable!!

    Hope you are having a nice weekend, AJ ๐Ÿ™‚
