Monday there was a full spread of delicious breakfast items, such as donuts, kolaches, pastries, etc. Like a good girl, I overlooked it all and had my greek yogurt instead.
Professional development week is also when it's understood that you go out to eat every day during lunch. As teachers, during a school day we have to cram our lunch into 30 minutes, so it's always a big deal when we get to enjoy a longer one. My friends went out to eat every single day, but I didn't join them once. I knew it was the best decision for me both financially and health wise, but it wasn't always easy to watch them go off and enjoy some of my favorite fattening foods while I stayed behind and ate tuna. There were no healthy options for me where they went, so I made the choice to stay behind and do what was best for me. I consider saying no all week as a non scale victory! It proves I can make good choices for myself, even when it isn't easy.
I love this so much!
As far as workouts go, I got in my Vixen classes on Monday and Wednesday, but that was all I did. I'm really disappointed for not getting in a single run the whole week. I'm coming off summer when I was working out twice a day, and now I'm having a hard time mentally knowing I'm not getting nearly the calorie burn as before. I haven't been leaving school until around 6 or so, and I have yet to make it to the gym for a run afterwards. I guess I need to be ok with my nights ending later so I can get in a run. Hopefully things will die down to where I can find a more manageable schedule. I know I'm still doing ok after making improvements during this weekend's 5k, but in the past I've been known to get overwhelmed and give up, and I refuse to let that happen this time.
To add to it, I start a new grad class on Tuesday night. Ugh!
I'm just feeling a
I just need to take a breath and know I will find a way to make it all work!
