Hi friends! Remember me? I've said it a million times this year but my goodness, the 2013-2014 school year has been crazy! Tonight I'm linking up with Tara for her One for Me Linky. :)
There are so many things about this school year that have been wonderful. I'm only teaching ELA this year, which I love. I share students with a wonderful teacher who has become a good friend. My husband and I have developed friendships with our neighbors and spend a lot of time hanging out them.
However, the first half of the 2013-2014 school year has also been busy and stressful. New evaluation systems, transitioning to the Common Core, graduate school, and being a wife, daughter, dog mom, and friend took a toll on me. I got frequent migraines, almost weekly, was constantly exhausted, and ate very unhealthy. Essentially, I stopped taking care of myself.
I stepped on the scale today, and well obviously, I didn't like what I saw. At all.
My one goal for me this year is to take better care of me. Once upon a time, I ran frequently, ate healthy, and had a beautiful cute wardrobe that now resides in my basement.
I've joined MyFitnessPal, my name there is fourthnten, and am committed to take care of myself by eating healthy and being active. While
I don't quite have the time I did a few years ago to go run 8 miles after work, I do have time to take my dogs on walks or run a few miles. I also love to cook, and really look forward to cooking healthy meals again.
I also decided to not take a break from graduate school this semester. It will be nice to have a little bit more time on my hands. Which will hopefully lead to more blogging and creating, which I love and miss so very much.
Thanks, Tara for a GREAT link up! I'm so blessed to have a great friend like her. :)
Happy New Year, Friends! May 2014 be great for all of us. :)
