Okay, I know, the start of the new year, and suddenly all I can think of is getting in better shape. How cliche! Still and all, it controls my every thought these days. How do I work out, what do I eat, how often should I workout, how can I do this and not loSE MY MIND!
The truth: I am usually very good about what I eat...until I'm tired, and don't feel like preparing
I know, first I enforce a chore system, and now I'm shoving veggies down their poor little throats. So mean...they may end up running away. If you see them, give them some Pringles and send them home.
(I am also secretly considering keeping the candy treats out of my classroom because I eat those more than I give them as treats!......What!? There is stress in the classroom, too! If you know my students, you may soon see them running around the playground with stalks of celery. Play along.)
Anyhow, the lesson learned...when trying to control eating habits, one will eat just about anything out of spite. In addition, my kids will suffer along with me...and my husband (he's lost over 25 lbs. recently, so he doesn't count.)
Now, if this Arctic freezing weather would leave long enough for me to brave a grocery store, we'll be on our way. I'll keep you posted.
By the way, the kids are punished today because all hats and scarves from yesterday's escapades are still covering what used to be referred to as their rooms....and Zac officially hates doing dishes.
