Just weighed myself this morning and I lost 3lbs! WOOHOO!
However, its not really anything to be TOTALLY excited about – considering I haven’t really eaten real food since Friday. I ended up getting a stomach bug this past weekend and spent the whole time in bed. Most people would LOVE a weekend like that – but when you have a list the length of the Mississippi of stuff to get done – spending all that time in bed can actually be frustrating.
But its a new month and a new week – I can’t change the fact that I got sick. So, instead of feeling overwhelmed – like I’m sinking into a hole and can’t find a way out – I’m going to breathe deep and take one task at a time. I have to figure out what is the MOST important thing that needs to be done AT THIS MOMENT – and move down the list from there. So if I don’t have a new blog post for you in a few days – I hope you understand.
In case you may not know – I’m a school teacher. I’ve spent the last year and a half getting my masters and finished my certification in December. I was suppose to spend from January to June occasionally going in as a substitute for other teachers and ‘maybe’ looking foraÂ job to get some experience on my resume. Well – my ‘maybe’ looking for a job – turned INTO a job – and now my whole life has changed.
Last week I pushed myself – I thought ‘So what if I have a new job – I’m training for a show – I can still do whatever I have been doing before’. However, I quickly learned through my sickness this past weekend that this wasn’t the case. I’m now trying to figure out the right way to ‘balance’ everything. I think its something that many of us have a hard time doing. Instead of balancing things – we either give TOO much and leave nothing for ourselves or give up on trying to do what we like and spend all our time on everything else.
Its definitely a hard thing to figure out – but I’m determined to do it. I have to figure out when/how I can fit in my training because THAT is not going to go anywhere. I’m 100% committed to doing a show and NOTHING will change my mind. I need to figure out what needs to be done at school – when do I have extra time to do those ‘extra’ things and how long I can stay at school without being TOO long.
I know I can do it – its just going to be a trail and error process. But, I’m determined to master it because I’ve started too much that I enjoy/care about to give up just because I have less ‘free’ time.
This blog had nothing really to do with my training – well kind of – but not really. Haha – I guess its whatever is on my mind at the time – and this ‘balancing’ of time has to be figured out in order to change and make my training successful.
In regards to training – since I still have not really eaten any ‘real food’ – there will be no gym for me today. Hopefully I can eat some chicken tonight for dinner or maybe a protein shake (last night both sounded SO gross) and make it to the gym tomorrow – next big decision – before or after school?
Have a great day and happy training!
