First week of August

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Jeez where's the time going?! This week held a lot of new little challenges, including a mini-emotional-meltdown when I interviewed for, and was accepted as, a school bus driver here in the city. I have 9 days (40 hours) worth of training to go through first but then, yeh, I could be driving your kids to and from school. My first real moment was: HOLY CRAP! HOW WILL I KEEP UP WITH MY WORKOUTS?! and then I sat down with my calendar and mapped out how I'll handle things by working around my M/W training days. I won't even worry about how to handle the actual split shift work days until they're handing me my license. Good plan right? If only I were that simple.
ANYWAY!!
Progress report for the first week of August looks like this:
1 - to continue running 3 times a week
**Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday! emoticon

2 - to lose my last five pregnancy pounds
**I lost .5 at my last weigh-in. That's definite progress.

3 - to blog my progress every Saturday
** emoticon

4 - to drink eight 8 oz glasses of water a day
**I missed ONE day out of 7.

5 - to sleep 7 hours a night
**6/7 and the seventh was a Roo night. I can't wait until all her teeth are in.

6 - to add two- days of strength training to my week
**Boot camp on Tuesday. BodyPump on Monday and Saturday. emoticon

7 - to add one day of yoga/stretching to my week.
**I did BodyFlow on Monday after my BodyPump class! emoticon

8 - to stay within calorie range AT LEAST 5 out of 7 days.
**not so much. I did 4 days but if you average out all 7 days, I was about 300 calories over EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.


My mother gave her this sucker. Once she figured out which end when into her mouth, it took every ounce of strength I had to get it away from her. The sucker is still in the car in a baggie. She really doesn't need that much sugar.

    I'm partial to school bus drivers. My dad drove a school bus for mentally handicapped children for years :)

    Roo's had is adorable! Yes, this week has just flown by, but so has the rest of the year. Congrats on the new job.

    Candy, Robin and I did our H2C volunteer training yesterday. Robin must have been there very early. I did see Candy. We're all working the finish this year. I'm getting excited.

    Congratulations on your new job! Give yourself some time to adjust to your new schedule - that was always the hardest for me when I worked. Eventually you'll find your rhythm. Good job on planning ahead!
