I have now regularly exercised for 3 whole weeks. Thank goodness for Gala for asking me to be her workout partner. I don’t think I have the motivation to actually workout without a little bit of peer pressure. It has been fun. We work out every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday after school, and I usually try to grab whoever else is in the hallway and convince them to come join us. We now have 2 or 3 other people who show up each time. If anyone is interested in working out “together” long distance, we are doing Jillian Michael’s 30-day shred. It really isn’t that bad and it only takes 25 minutes of your day. Just be prepared to be tired and sweaty at the end of the 25 minutes.
This weekend was pretty low key (other than, I almost killed Tim . . . read on), but very nice. Friday evening, Tim and I stayed home. I tried a new recipe from the Lee Family Recipe Book: Mexican casserole. I was bracing myself for Tim not to like it and was pleasantly surprised that he did really like it. (I love it when he loves easy meals.) Saturday, we both worked for several hours. I got my lesson plans done for next week. I got my lesson plans done for next week!! I GOT MY LESSON PLANS DONE FOR NEXT WEEK!!!! Okay, so I may be a little excited about that. It has been my goal for two years to get planned for the week (instead of just the next day) and it finally happened. This makes the future week seem so doable and I am greatly looking forward to at least one week of a more balanced lifestyle.
P.S. It’s 15 degrees above 0 today! It hasn’t been that warm since before Christmas.
