I keep trying to get back on track, but then I just run out of time in my day.
I am trying to add back in fitness as I just have not felt good lately.
I haven't had morning sickness, but just general queasiness. This feeling should be better after the first trimester, right? I am in Week 10 right now.
Work wise - the school year is off to an ok start. I have a new assistant that is just in a sour mood all the time. She doesn't like the job and that attitude just wears on everyone in the room. We have 8 students (all students with moderate to severe autism) and there is myself and 3 assistants. So, we work in pretty close quarters, and life is great when the team works well together. I have been so lucky to have that for the past 3 years. I am thinking now- training and level of expertise actually falls under the quality of the team. I can bring my staff up to speed, but I can't change their attitude. Hopefully it will get better or she will just quit. The worst part is that affects the kids.
School wise- in my last class- meaning I am working on my final project. At the school I am at, to finish the requirements for the Masters- you do a capstone project. It is like a thesis, but...different. It is sort of like an applied project that you can usually implement in the field. I am hoping to do a series of parent training that we can actually use this year.
School should be done next month, and by then I will be out of my first trimester. Hopefully I will stop wanting to sleep all the time around then too!
Oh, and I have gained about 5 pounds already. That is a lot fast, I just feel so bloated all the TIME. I am trying my best to eat healthy, but I think it is because I can't workout as much as I usually do. I am so nervous that when I go home later this month that I am going to hear a lot of crap from my family about the weight gain. Otherwise, I am trying not to stress about it. I just need to be healthy, and not stress over it. The baby deserves it. But...man, as someone who is always trying to lose weight, this is a really hard thing to do!
