I am on the anatomy part of my PT textbook - wow. Not that I didn't have respect for people in the healthcare field, but this gives me a whole new appreciation for what they know! It's a good thing that I find it really interesting, otherwise I don't know how I'd ever remember all the terms!
Today was a good eating day. I stuck to the plan, and had a snack of applesauce and granola a little bit ago. I crossed off stuff on my to-do list and am getting ready to write tomorrow's. My workout was good this morning - I did a little running and some strength. I am having a little issue with *some* part of my shoulder - I don't know exactly what it is, but I have been taking it easy with the shoulder exercises and I feel like it's improving (knock on wood).
- water! Today was good with that
- swimming - I have my morning swim class and I can't wait!
- study my PT book

So I once *again* went back to using a food journal. An actual paper journal. I love being able to enter my food on my phone, but I feel more accountable if I think "I have to write this down if I eat it." I think I keep track of my food in no fewer than three places. But it works.
I also went back to a real paper planner. I found a super cute planner that is just PERFECT! Again, while I love having my little pop-up notices about what I have to do, there's something about actually writing things down that I love.
This morning I won the snooze alarm battle and I woke up early for a swim. I got in a really good 30 minute swim. I am definitely noticing a difference in my speed and my efficiency. My upper back muscles are looking pretty nice, too. My shoulder blades were popping out this morning and my shoulders are starting to look good.
Today I taught kindergarten. Holy moly. It was kind of a rough class, but you know what's kind of funny? When I came home, I didn't feel like crashing on the couch. Sure, I spend a bit of time online reading, but I didn't immediately lie down for a nap. The morning workouts really seem to help with that. When I get to the gym before school, I have tons of energy for the rest of the day. Tomorrow I'm only teaching in the afternoon, so I have lots of time to get to the gym in the morning and do a run/strength training workout.
- drank all my water today
- stuck to the eating plan, with minimal snacking on granola when I came home
- woke up to swim!
- made bran muffins and applesauce

I had a very busy day! I cleaned up a ton of stuff, I moved some things around in the living room, and I made granola. Phew!
This week is going to be busy. I have three sub days already - two of them are afternoons only, which I actually really like. Having the morning free is so good for me. I can get to the gym before school and have time to get in a good workout.
I wrote this week's workout schedule. Tomorrow morning is a swim before school. I have my lunch packed and ready to go.
Not much else... drank all my water today...

Today was a marvelous rest day. Hubs and I showed the house to a potential renter - it went well. Keep your fingers crossed that everything works out!
I have been totally crafty lately. I've been a regular at Michael's and AC Moore, and I have my own little craft corner set up in my living room. Today I picked up some new keychain baubles, a new stamp, and some other little things. I made a birthday card! I got the idea from the blog Cupcakes and Cashmere. i LOVE the way it turned out. I am so excited! One of my good friends has a birthday on Saturday, so I know she'll just love getting my homemade card.
My personal trainer material came today! I can start reading and studying for my exam, which is coming up in November. I have a weekend workshop - the schedule looks so great! - and then a written and a practical exam to pass. I feel so good about doing this!
This weekend I'm heading down to my mom's house to do a photo shoot at her church. They are having a bazaar and need some pictures, so I'm taking my stuff there on Saturday morning. I'm looking forward to getting my stuff out there!
I've been feeling really good lately. My eating has been really good, and I've been drinking all my water. I feel like I have three really awesome hobbies - fitness, photography, and crafts! And all this happened because I finally embraced my unemployment. I admit, I am enjoying the time off, but I'm also excited to get into my new field when I'm done with school next spring.
- drink more water
- make a keychain or two
- enjoy the night with my hubs!
