Wow....only TWO days into this new school year and I am in need of a masseuse, house keeper, chef, and a huge comfy king sized bed to take a nap on! lol.... BUT, in reality, I rushed to pick up both of my kids after work, then came home, threw together dinner, gave baths, and now I am sitting doing NOTHING very productive for the first time ALL DAY! WHEW! It's been a whirlwind of a week so far, but I know by next Friday I'll have it all down again.
Do you guys feel like this at the beginning of the year too? It seems like every year it takes me about two weeks to get my bearings again. :)
My class this year is really amazing...very well mannered and quick with following directions for the most part. I'm trying the "Whole Brain Learning" rules this year and so far, I'm really liking the results.
Now, as my title said, this is a bit RANDOM.....
Remember a few days ago I showed you guys my FIRST DAY sign for pictures of my students?
Well, here are the two color choices:
What do you guys think??? Which would be the better picture bulletin of my class? THe black and white, or the high contrast color?
And, back on the random thought train.... Let's get real for a minute.... ok?
I have two kids....an almost 5 year old and a 15 month old. I was the HEALTHIEST in my life when I got pregnant with my daughter and let's just say....since then I'm at my not so healthiest... lol
Without exaggeration, I have about 60 pounds to lose. I am not on a mission for skinny, because even at my healthiest and most fit looking, I was a healthy size 12.
That's what I want back....and I am going to do it with the help of Kimberlee from Two Fulbright Hugs!
I'm teaming up to get healthy and lose weight! Maybe you are at your perfect weight, but want to link up for new healthy recipes or inspiration???
Something to think about.....
I'm starting by eating more healthy meals and staying away from carbs after 3pm each day. Here's my dinner:
Instead of making "TACOS" I made lettuce wraps! I used ground turkey, fat free cheese (measured instead of thrown on by hand), and chunky salsa with hot sauce. That's it....and it was DELICIOUS!
Now that I'm so busy again with teaching all day and taking care of my two at night, I'm trying to work on meal planning the weekend before each week. Tomorrow night is a "no cook" night. We are having fruit smoothies with protein for dinner :) My kids even like these! (big plus!)
Ok, enough randomness.....
Remember this is my BIRTHDAY week! I have a few more little surprises up my sleeve this week, so stay tuned!
