I’m still doing it!! I just finished my 10th day in a row and am feeling proud of myself for sticking with it. I really did NOT want to do it today, but I did, although I was quite grumpy the whole time. Week 2 has a few moves that are really difficult. I need more upper body strength to do cardio in plank — wow!
One-third of the way there!! Yay!
Think I will try 30 Day Shred when this is done.
I have decide to try Ripped in 30 (Jillian Michaels) again. I tried it back in April - did it once and was so sore the next day that I tossed the DVD aside.
Well, I found that DVD. I decided to try it again. After the first day, I was incredibly sore again … but that didn’t stop me this time. I have done it 3 days in a row, now and am on my way to finishing it. I plan to do 30 days straight! I know myself, if I take one day off that will be the end. So I am NOT taking any days off. I am 10% of the way there.
This is the first week of summer break and I am already planning for next year. This year I was thrilled to get a 4th grade teaching position at the school I have been at for the last three years … but, that thrill is gone. I was told that my classroom would be given to a different teacher next year and it just breaks my heart. The team at my school is like family to me and the thought of not seeing those teachers and those lovely kids next year, just pains me. I am almost wishing I was subbing next year instead of moving to a different school. At least with subbing, I would get to see everyone…
But, ever onward. I do have a job next year. And I should be happy about that since many of my teacher friends don’t know what next year looks like. I was moved to a different school in the district and a different grade. I am teaching first grade next year at a tough school. I know it will be very rewarding, but I expect there will be many tears too. I hope to grow as a person and a teacher next year. I have to remind myself things happen for a reason … sometimes that is the only thing that gets me past the hurt and anger of being pushed out of my current school.
So … onto Pinterest and teacher blogs. Time to start planning for all the adorable first graders I will meet next year.
