As progress report week approaches, I can see the signs of my work ethic starting to slip, but I don't want it to slip into my health and fitness and poison my progress. I brought grading home today, which I of course did NOT do, and tomorrow will bring about more grading with a test in both classes. Even with the sick day and snow day, I'm not caught up because I was sick on my sick day, and enjoyed my snow day. I guess those two days were worth it, but I hate falling behind. If you're reading this and wondering why I'm complaining about work when I'm doing so well with my fitness and nutrition, you're probably not a teacher. If the day/week/term starts to overwhelm me, I tend to shut down, and that would be very bad for my health and fitness progress.
But...I am SO much stronger than that, and am I really stressing over a couple of ungraded assignments??? Tomorrow is my favorite step aerobics class, and Saturday is my favorite cardio mix/kick my a** class, so I'm going to go dream of sugarplums and sweat-drenched workout clothes.
