Or not. Whatever.
Either way, let me just say that the last two weeks have been an adjustment, to say the least. I was not kidding in my last post when I said it was the calm before the storm. The storm has come and has not yet past. Preparing to teach my first year of preschool has proved to be a bigger task than I expected, planning wise. It's just glorified babysitting right? Well, when my OCD kicks in, it goes straight to 5th gear....and I want everything to be perfect and perfectly planned. Centers, carpet time, songs, calendars, games, music, schedule...you name it, I've tried to plan it. Turns out, I didn't plan everything.
The first day of preschool was a success, even if it didn't go exactly the way I planned it. My classes are great, my kids are adorable, my assistants are amazing - I think it's going to be a fun year! My body is still adjusting to waking up before the sun to get three people ready, so I've been having a tough time, but I think it will be worth it. Getting in a set schedule has always been good for me, even if I resist it: It's just always helped me balance. I tend to slack off and be lazy if I don't have anything pushing me to get going.
And speaking of push, I'm sure you'd also like an update on my weight loss journey since I haven't updated that in two weeks either. Well, needless to say, my vigorous exercising routine took a back seat over the last two weeks of planning stress, but it has not stopped! I will give you a full update next Wednesday (hopefully), but I've lost a total of 10lbs! =] I still feel the same and feel like I need to push myself a little harder, but I'm taking it a day at a time. I've been trying to make better choices, not eating late, making sure to eat breakfast, etc. Just being smarter about the way I eat, and my life in general. I will NOT give up until I feel comfortable in my own skin again.
Slowly but surely, things/routines/plans are finding their place in my life. There's so much to squeeze in to one blog post, but I have work to do, so we'll just have to save it for another day!
