I'm on my 2nd week of a "better life" plan. I can admit, I was irritated at the beginning of the week. I got on the scale... and NOTHING changed. My weight was exactly the same. So, I went out and got some doughnuts. I went to school, and snacked on some left over chips from our Homework Club Party. Went to a meeting during planning, and was told ALL of the this STUFF that just had to be done during my 20 minute guided reading groups. (Counted it up, and the time it would take would leave me about 6 minutes to "teach.") Then my lovely angel of a student decided it make goose noises the whole time we were taking a practice writing test. Cue the candy bar!
It was only Monday...
....and the tone was definitely set for the week....I didn't work out... not once... I didn't drink enough water...not one single day...I ate so much bread... and I liked it...until I was thinking about my goals. Then I was disgusted.
The rest of my week I spent dealing with books flinging at my head, evacuating my class because of a child's meltdown, and reading that everything is happening because I'm probably not doing things a certain way. Phew! I thought it was because the children had a hard life and really didn't like when they were asked to do certain things. ::EYE ROLL EXTREME::
Ya'll when I say, I can't wait for this school year to be O-V-E-R I mean I CANNOT WAIT!! Ever have that year? I've heard they come every 5 years or so, and I've had 2 in the last 3 years.
Anyway, enough of the venting.... IT HAPPENED. I stepped up on the scale on Friday morning. It said, "Good Morning! You have lost 10 lbs.!" I couldn't believe it, so I stepped up on it again and it said, "I'm not lying!" In 2 weeks, I have lost 10 lbs, even with one week sucking pretty badly. I spent 2 hours this morning meal prepping. Here's my plan for this glorious shortened week (SPRING BREAK IS COMING!)...
Day 1: Mini Quiches (5) for breakfast, Tuna and avocado (seasoned like guacamole) for morning snack, Stuffed bread (left over from last week), hummus and raw veggies for an afternoon snack, and then for dinner stuffed chicken breast with roasted asparagus.
Day 2: I made my own Quiche, so I'll have 4 oz. of it, tuna and avocado with some crackers, almond flour coated chicken tenders, raw veggies, and stuffed chicken and asparagus.
Day 3: 4 oz of Quiche, fresh fruit and honey lemon dressing, chicken sandwich, and we are going out to a co-worker's house for dinner.
Day 4: (Ya'll spring break is here!!) So, after sleeping in... I'll probably eat my chicken nuggets because it will be lunch time (LOL!), then some fruit salad from the day before, and finally end on a peanut butter sandwich or La Torta Loca (If you ever come to Nashville, this place is better than Mas Tacos!).
Day 5: I'm off to Indiana. So the food will consist of car ride food (lunchmeat and cheese most likely)

Back to the exercise routine this week! Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I will be walking the track and doing the bleacher climb. I get some great stair steps in on those bleachers. It counts as something like 8 flights of stairs. It sure does wear me out, but it's worth it.
Post below what you did this week to help yourself become a better you!
