4:30 a.m workouts

Thursday, January 16, 2014

so since Monday I have been getting up at 4: 30 a.m. and doing the 30 day shred. I thought I was going to be super tired by the end of the day but the complete opposite. I have been more alert through my day and able to sleep much better. I mean I know it is only day 3 but I feel that it is working great for me. Adding a dollar into a savings each time I work out to save for something I really want. I need to make list but that will come.

I have realized that I need an accountability buddy though. so searching see what comes up. For new years resolution is to BELIEVE. Believe in myself to do whatever I want to accomplish. Most of the time I lose motivation just because I don't believe enough. But I know I can and will do it. I can no longer be my biggest critic. I have to learn to accept things and take things day by day.

I have lost weight here and there and then gained it back. So to fat: time for a divorce because a separation just isn't going to do it for me this time. :-) got the drive and going to keep moving straight.

Just registered for 39 mile avon walk :-) so going to get this!!!

Posted pics

Monday, January 06, 2014

So went to the gym today and posted pics of where I am now. Cant say I am happy about them. But you know what I know they are going to change over the months. It is going to be a work in progress and I am going to get there. I know it. This time is going to be different and has to be different . No excuses.

as for my workout today was awesome . Did some treadmill and was able to jog some and also did the stairs. Then relax in the sauna is the most rewarding part to relax and realize how much I actually got done and pushed myself.

Back to work tomorrow and I pray that the motivation stays with me because stress from work takes a whole toll on me that just brings me down. But my goal is to really work on it this year. last year was not a good year for me. It took a toll on me at work and at home. Sadly my marriage was at risk. I want to be a happy healthy person this year and I am going to do whatever it takes to get there. Nothing is going to hold me back. Success begins with a wink and a smile so here goes nothing. Bring it 2014. :)

    ^^^ lol umm good for this person running everyday. But great job killing your workout today! Of coarse the motivation is going to stay with you. Just keep it in your head at the forefront that you're motivated and giving up or allowing yourself to use the same excuses isn't an option.

    Teaching is not easy especially if you are starting out. Planning and preparation does take along time in the first few years. One of the ways I deal with students of greatly varying abilities to create each activity for the learning outcome you are focusing on that are scaffolded for different abilities. Also thinking of a lesson as not one big lesson but several mini ones. e.g. teacher centred instruction for 5-10 minutes (no longer you will lose them) then an activity to reinforce the learning they need to do (10-15 minutes while you are moving around helping and assessing them as they are going) the go over the activity (5 minutes) and repeat. Remember the best thing a teacher can do is give immediate quality feedback on what they are working on and feed forward on what they need to focus on next.

new year :)

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

So this is a new year. And still not where I need to be. Right after Christmas I began detoxing and eating healthy. I have been holding on strong. Family even went out to eat and I did really good about trlling them exeactly what I wanted no grease no frying :) salad . I have been portioning and tracking all my meals. Since on vacation from school exercisr has been added again and I must say it feels good. I told my husband he is beginning this journey with me. It scared me when he got on the scale and he is thirty pounds from being at 300. That really scared me. So I figured if he sees me stick to it and make healthier meals I can help my family get healthier. And I heard a scary statistic can't remember from where but if both parents are overweight its 85% chance their children will be overweight....Right now my kids are very active but I do not want them to become overweight. I have also portioned their food and have seen changes with them getting fuller faster and less dishes cause not making huge meals.

Every month I will be posting pictures to see changes.. I just need constant motivation..so any help is appreciated. So more of setting a number where I want to be I just want to make simple changes weekly. Like first working out at least 30minutes a day and right now no sweets (cause that is my weakness).then when those are mastered pick something else to work on

    It's good not to try and tackle every goal at once. Adding one or two at a time is the way to go. It's great that you want to set the example for your kids and hubby. You can do this as a family. Happy New Year!
