Glad that's over
The last few days have been full of special events. Breakfast and lunch has not been under my complete control. I've made pretty good choices, but I prefer to cook myself. Thankfully that is all over now. Starting tomorrow, I'll bring my own food and will eat like a normal person.
Tomorrow is just orientation so no teaching. I do not have a homeroom so I will be free to work on my classroom all morning. Nice. I also don't have any lunch supervisory duties, that is really nice. I'm excited about the new year. Love, love, love new starts.
So I'm looking at the start of new school year as a blank slate and complete new start. I'm going to start working out. I want to start slow, so I'm thinking of 30 minutes on the treadmill to start. Gradually I want to work up to dancing and then Crossfit type workouts. I've got it in my head that I'll return to Crossfit at the beginning of the year. I don't know exactly why I chose that time, but it's as good as any. That gives me 6 full months to do a number of things. First, get my eating under control and it looks like I'm on the way to doing that. I just need to keep it up and by 6 months it will hopefully be set. Second, work on my aerobic capacity, something I lost with Crossfit. Thirdly, build my upper body strength. I want to do pull-ups and dips and the only way to do that is to build up my upper body strength. In fact, I may start my workouts on Monday with some strength stuff. Maybe I'll do push ups, dips, shoulder presses, and sit ups in the mornings. I'd like to do my dance workouts at night and the only reason I haven't been doing them is that I've been lazy and tired. No more lazy and tired is a state of mind. I like this. Some strength in the morning and cardio in the evenings. Sounds like a plan.
Right now, I am tired so I'm heading to bed. Tomorrow will be an awesome day.
