Here’s another update for the Perfect 10 Challenge.
My Perfect 10 Goals Are:
- Complete the Couch to 5K program. YES – I finished week 3 last night. I’m having a bit of an issue with shin splits, but nothing serious.
- Drink 6-8, 8 oz. glasses of water daily. No – I had three days for sure that I didn’t get at least six 8-oz glasses of water in, maybe even four. Back to normal yesterday and today though.
- Adjust my eating to see weight loss. No – I saw a 1.0 gain and I know why. After a large unexpected loss I was for sure I’d see a gain, but then I had a few days where the eating wasn’t that great – always eating beyond full, so I know that’s the issue. I just have to stop eating beyond full and when I’m not hungry.
I’m not giving up and continue to look for progress in the future.
As for the little tidbit on me….
Since I mentioned it this week, I’ll expound. I’m a substitute teacher. I do not have a teaching degree, but here in our district you don’t have to have anything beyond a high school graduation and a clean record to sub. Yes, it’s strange, but you are also only allowed to sub for a teacher 70 days out of the school year when you don’t have a degree (as many days as you want for a class aide). So, it works perfect for me, because I only sub at my children’s school part time.I sub in all elementary grades, music, art, P.E. and special ed.
I was a teacher’s aide in a special education classroom with very low functioning children for a year before moving out here, and I did daycare for a few years when my children were much younger. I’ve also taught Sunday school for about eight years. So, I do have some experience working with kids and I really enjoy it.
If I had gone to college I would’ve gone to either be a teacher or an accountant. Since I have to work right now I love that I have found such a perfect job for me. I love it!
