I have lost two pounds this week, but I’m too tired to care. This is what happens once school starts. My focus is on teaching and children and projects and schedules and my personal needs take a back seat. I admire the women who manage to run and go to the gym and carve out some time for their bodies. I haven’t figured out how to do that because mine is too exhausted at this point to manage one more thing. It’s not that I am lacking exercise. I worked in the flowers beds three evenings last week. Late last night I finished mowing the lawn. It’s just that the things I do for exercise are work and the things I do for pleasure are sedentary. Maybe an old dog can’t learn too many new tricks.
Gary is working a lot of evening shifts lately and that means I eat alone. I actually eat less when I eat alone. I’m sticking to most of our dietary changes because I simply don’t buy things that are harmful. If you don’t bring it home, you can’t eat it!
Perhaps once I transition more fully into the school routine I won’t be so tired.
