I had really low expectations of how today was going to go. It was just one of those days... on my way in to school, I started thinking about how sad I was that I don't have a school family anymore. For as much as people said they were going to stay in touch, life happened and everyone just got too busy. I thought about how sad I was that Christmas parties are happening, Secret Santas and cookie exchanges in the schools and that I'm not going to be a part of it this year. Being unemployed isn't all about the money, it's the sense of community that goes along with having a steady job.
So anyway, I was expecting a really crappy day. But leave it to fourth graders - I had a great day with the kids, I got some nice compliments from colleagues, and I got in a great workout after school. I felt much better after I went to the gym. I usually have a hard time going after school, but today I just got in the car and drove to the gym without really thinking about it. If I think about it too much, I make excuses.
Good things for today:
- I drank all my water!
- I did a great great great workout; I went to a Pilates class for the first time in ages and I have really gotten stronger. I was able to do moves on the ball that I wouldn't have been able to do just a few months ago!
- The kids were really nice today.
Tomorrow is a sports conditioning class after school. It's new at my gym and I'm looking forward to it. I am scheduled to do a circuit tomorrow, so I figured the class would be a fun way to get in some circuit training.
