Why I Am Proud of Myself

Ummm, when did it get to be February?  2011 is flying by, and so far it’s been a pretty great year.  In the month of January, I:

  • joined a gym and hired a personal trainer
  • lost 10 lbs.
  • cooked actual meals made of real, unprocessed foods
  • read 4 1/2 books
  • cut all sugar out of my diet (except for cheat day)
  • pushed my students to become better writers and refused to accept excuses
  • made my bed almost every day (of course, I only started doing that so I would stop getting back in it instead of getting up in the morning)

In February, I will:

  • add some sugar back into my diet, but without going crazy
  • teach the beginning of a research/debate unit without stressing out/killing any students
  • continue to work my butt off in the gym (literally)
  • spend more consistent time in the Word (I cleaned off my desk so now I actually have somewhere to do that)
  • figure out how to cook something other than chicken – recipes are welcome!
  • save enough money to do something fun for a couple of days over Spring Break

I’m really loving my life right now and I’m really proud of the changes I’m making and the things I am accomplishing.  Happy Wednesday!
