February promised to be kinder.

I can't really say it's been much kinder, but it hasn't shown me a full week yet either.  I can at least say it has been a productive week. 


Productivity #1:  Started the 30 day shred.  I'm only one day in, but enjoyed it.  I hate strength training, and it was nice to just have a video and look silly/sweaty in my own home.  I also love that it's only a 20 minute work out.  While level 1, day 1 was really tough...it felt like it was over really quickly.  I liked that I could just change after I got home from a long, hard day at work and get to it.

Productivity #2:  I got a lot of lesson planning done yesterday.  Only teachers would understand, but planning is a bitch.  I have to plan for 3 curriculums daily (most middle school teachers teach one curriculum to four classes daily), which is extremely difficult as a first year teacher with special education requirements (amongst other things) on my plate.  Anyhow.  I'm proud of the small amount of planning I did.  Planning is comparable to working out for me...it sucks to get started (or get there at all) but the feeling after and pay off it totally worth it.

Productivity #3:  Hopefully closing on our house this week. Hallelujah to have that done.

Today was a particularly awful day related to work and if I had money, I'd buy an item of clothing.  I've mostly nixed that habit of stress shopping though.  Luckily I fueled my stress (including a stress-induced headache) with a workout and beer. Bring on spring break!
