The day was tough at work, but outside of work, it was lovely.

Exercise:

It was great to get back to working out with Lyndsay! I really loved how my new Garmin successfully tracked both my treadmill run and my cardio session. We did intervals and I actually got up to 7.6km/hr which is fast for me. On the cardio we did reverse lunges, squats with overhead press, burpees, bicep curls, sit ups, jump squats and five jumping jacks between each of these. I was definitely a sweaty mess by the end, but a happy, sweaty mess.

Teaching:

It was another tough day with the kids. We got through calendar, music, addition math games, and some polar bear learning.

I felt like I spent the day talking about kindness, that rules apply to everyone and the idea of persevering. One of these days I’d like to actually teach some content!

Socializing:

I met up with two friends for our annual Dine Out dinner. We went to Chicha downtown which is Peruvian food. It was a very small restaurant and the tables were very close together, but it was wonderful food!

Sorry for the poor picture- it was a very dark restaurant. I had the quinoa salad, the crispy cauliflower, the ceviche and then fruit for dessert. It was my friend’s turn to pick the restaurant and she definitely doesn’t pay as close attention to the dessert as I do🤣. My favourite part was the ceviche as it had a ton of seafood in it, along with pieces of orange which was really good.

Well I’m off to bed, have fun!

    1. Oh I would not survive not being able to eat fish- that’s what I always have when i go out. My friends had the chicken and said it was great and I would definitely eat it again

  1. I feel that there are years that I have classes who need me more as a life coach than a teacher. They struggle with interpersonal relationships, taking responsibility for themselves/their actions and have no grit. Sadly it happens more and more often. Just remember these life lessons will end up having more of an impact on the whole child than teaching academic topics (not that the academic isn’t important)

    1. I think I’ve resigned myself to it with this class. If I can get them all reading and being nice most of the time, I’ll count the year as a success
