Today has been a bit crazy. Coming back after having a sub always is. Thankfully, my kids are awesome, so things went very smoothly, yesterday. Today was just full of grading, revamping lesson plans, and dealing with some paperwork my principal requested (for some reason *note sarcasm!* she thought it might be good for the office to know where each student is during our final block when I have 3 grade levels (total of about 50 kids) spread across 6 classrooms).
Anyway, it’s been nice to get back to my routine. I’m feeling really good about staying on track this week! It’s tough, sometimes, but I keep remembering that my id is an idiot (I don’t know why but that resonates with me). Evenings are the toughest for me; they always are. It’s not the I’m hungry – I just have a habit of snacking at night. It’s a habit that I really want to break, so I’m working on it. Every morning, when I wake up, I’m proud of myself and glad I controlled my snacking the night before. It’s a great way to start my day.
Since Hubby got to spend the evening in a meeting, I attempted to do my run on the treadmill. I made it 1.25 miles before remembering just how much I hate treadmill running. I had it set to 5 mph (12 min/mile) which is slow for me, but I still had trouble catching my breath! I don’t know what it is about the treadmill, but I always feel like I’m sprinting on it! I decided not to stress over it and did some strength training.
