Saturdays... a chance to relax.... YEAH RIGHT!! My family is in a mad rush to get ready for my son's 4 year old Power Rangers party. It's still a couple of hours away. My house will soon be filled with 3 and 4 year olds... that I don't know from his classes at school and church... Wish me luck!
This week for Student Motivation I wanted to share about my students celebrating the 100th day of school. I tried something this year that was hilarious, I gave my students the option to dress up like they were 100 years old. Now, I can't post their pictures - no point without seeing their faces - you wouldn't be able to see the wrinkles, gray hair, and facial hair. It was so much fun! I had 3 canes in class, lots of thick glasses, huge beaded jewelry, a full suit, some floppy hats, etc. I totally forgot how silly they get when they dress up. Worth it for one extra day of fun. :)
As for my own Slim Down motivation... well LOOK!
Yes, that says I lost 5.6 pounds this week. 5 point 6. I knew my scale lied last week when it was -0. It might be lying again this week, but since it's in my favor, at the moment I don't care. I did check it about 5 times this morning to see if the number would change (I was a little in shock).
I'm still avoiding sugar like the plague (going to be hard today since I ordered a cake for the party that I actually like). I got on the bike again during our nightly shows, and I am still Power Walking with the Biggest Loser contestants. I have been wearing that Activity Tracker every day and have been making sure to get it to 100% of goal. I forgot to bring my water bottle to school this week - partly because I was hauling so much other stuff to school and didn't have a free hand. Next week that will change. I also forgot to pack a snack a couple of days at school, so by the time I got home I was so hungry I wanted to eat everything in sight. I need to do better with that. I did finish up the book Made to Crave. Such a good read, I think it got my head on straight. I just started the devotional book that corresponds - just a tidbit a day to help me remember the point of this all.
That's me. How did you do this week?
