I have a presentation, a paper and 2 chapters due by Monday and here I am blogging instead. I've also helped Aerin rake all the leaves off the porch, made chicken posole, cooked and omelet, sent some facebook messages and played Wii fit for 30 minutes. I actually have the presentation almost done and well the reading I just can't get into. The paper is the real problem because I have to write a lit review about Asperger's syndrome and what interventions i would do for someone with it. I have some research done but my prof is a nun and half the time i feel retarded cause everyone else in the class seems to know what they're talking about. I feel like half the time I'm guessing and while thus far the guessses have been correct, I'm just waiting for the day when they're not. I have a feeling this paper may be the day. I am also contemplating going to the gym seeing as how I'm actually motivated to, but I have the crock pot on and I dont want to burn my house down. dilemmas dilemmas

look at me go!

This morning I got up at 4:30 a.m and worked out. I only walked one mile on the treadmill but thats better than nothing, plus i think i was a lil wore out from last nights work out. Then I came home took a shower and decided not to go to work but instead go back to bed. oops! Okay Ill have to work on that part of the plan. However, yesterday as I was standing in the gym changing room I saw myself in my to small TAMU surf club t-shirt and yoga pants and well honestly i was disgusted. I looked horrible. I don't mean that in a way that i have bad self esteem and think i'm ugly and etc etc but more in a way that I dont want to look or feel this way anymore. Its funny cause really its simple to take care, eat better and workout so I shouldnt have any excuses and really I want to be able to look in a mirror again and be proud of the hard work I put in and what i accomplished. It's really funny, but I work so hard at other things in my life, so why do i let my health slip by the wayside, I mean really if I'm not healthy then being a teacher and getting a Master's degree and traveling won't matter. I think it's time I put things in perspective.
Also I have become quite the lil chef boyardee. I have been cooking lately and I have discovered 2 things. 1. I actually enjoy it. 2. People actually eat it and don't complain, I have yet to put scallops in anything though. :)

The gym and armadillos

So today I was determined to go to the gym. I mean really determined. The first problem I encountered was that I had about a million things I needed to do after school. I wasn't so sure about going to the gym and being able to complete all these other tasks. Then I found out that our assistant principal observed one of the other teachers this morning. Thus, I could be next, which means I really needed to stay after school just to make sure that everything was in order. However, logic prevailed and I decided that I wouldnt make a very good teacher if i died from being fat. Then I didnt think I had socks, this happened one other time and I worked out without socks, which i dont recommend. I decide to just suck that one up. I get to the gym and go to put my shoes into my bag when I realize that i didnt bring a shirt to work out in. So I was all set to leave when I remembered that I had a tshirt in my trunk. So I finally made it to the gym, except I looked really bad in my workout outfit and felt super fat, but I figured if anyone looked at me I could say "well at least I'm at the gym".
Once I was at the gym, I did my usual 28 minute workout on the eliptical. Then I had planned on walking on the treadmill for at least a mile. Christina and I are doing this Armadillo dash thing at the end of Feb. and I havent trained at all. So I thought after doing the eliptical it would be wise to walk at least a mile to see me how long 3 miles would take. Well that plan sucked. I was on there for .12 miles when I decided i just couldnt do anymore. I was pooped. So now I'm kind of worried. I see alot of dead armadillos on the side of the road and all i can picture at this point is me looking like one of those armadillos on the side of the road passed out from the fatigue of walking one mile. Well maybe they'll put my pic in the paper. :)

Me vs. PTO Lady

So our PTO president sits in front of the office at our school everyday making sure that visitors check into the office, students shirts are tucked in, gossiping and selling delicious treats. Now, don't get me wrong the PTO lady has been very nice to me over the years, coloring, cutting, glueing etc.... however, I think she might be trying to sabotage me. Why oh Why must she sell chocolate bars with almonds and peanut m&m's. Seriously as if all the other things in life weren't tempting enough. So today I caved and I bought a chocolate bar with almonds and I ate it, and it was good. But, what sucks is this morning I made myself get out of bed just so I could play Wii fit for 15 minutes. I did a body test and I have lost 1.5 lbs. since last Wed. and my Wii age is now down to 31, so I am making progress but I have to learn to resist the chocolate bar. So tomorrow, I'm not taking money to school, cause she doesnt take credit cards and I'm taking sugar free chocolate pudding so in case I get a chocolate craving I am prepared. I just have to remember to keep pluggin away.

Random stuff

1. We went to happy hour at Howl at the Moon friday and it was a BLAST! There was piano bar and these awesome jello shots in syringes....reminds me of a Halloween party.
2. After Happy Hour we went to Whataburger, I got a patty melt. I dont even like patty melts, it was the pic I couldnt resist it, but now I know better.
3. Becky is borrowing some of my clothes for her cruise. So in an effort to help her find some cute clothes, I pulled all kinds of clothes out of my closet for her to try on and u know what it made me sad, not cause Becky can fit in them, I'm super proud of her for working hard, but sad for myself. I have an insane amount of really cute clothes that I can't wear. That is really annoying so I'm going to try and use that as another way to motivate myself to workout and eat right.
4. Wii fit is AWESOME! I love it and everyday I play a different game and I havent played all of them but it is AMAZING! YAY WII!!!!!!!!!!
