Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We spent Friday through Sunday at my in-laws’ doing birthday celebrations and a family reunion. It was a good weekend, but guess what I didn’t do? That’s right: take pictures. Because, again, I am the worst blogger ever. My in-laws even had a new calf born over the weekend, and I didn’t get a picture of it. Fail. Here, I found you a similar-looking calf on the Internet:
It’s Monday, which means it’s time for Target Practice. Remember, I stole this idea from Fit. Fun, Femme. and use it to set little goals for myself each week. Before we get to this week’s, though, let’s see how I did with last week’s goals.
Last week’s life goal was to get a solid start on on setting up my classroom. I’m pretty much there, which is good. One thing I did last week was clean out my file cabinet. I hadn’t done it since my first year (I’m about to start year seven), and I had a LOT of stuff I didn’t need anymore — dated materials, bad ideas that seemed good as a first-year teacher, etc.
Look at all the good ideas I didn’t have! This all came from one drawer. Time to recycle.
My health goal last week was to focus on post-run recovery nutrition. As it turns out, drinking chocolate milk after most runs is not really difficult. 🙂
And my fitness goal last week was to complete all my scheduled training runs and strength train three times. Done, to the tune of 56 miles run and three hours of strength work. Boom.
Now for this week’s goals:
Life: Two main work-related goals this week. I found out last week that the (free) web host we’ve always used for the school newspaper is no longer hosting, so I need to figure out what to use now. Second, I need to carefully go back over my curriculum, double-checking standards alignment, so that I’m ready to get syllabi done by the end of the week.
Health: I ate a lot of sugar this weekend. It’s back to the veggie-heavy, sugar-light diet this week!
Fitness: Adding on to last week’s goals … I’m continuing the goals to follow my training schedule and strength train three times, and adding at least two days of stretching and foam rolling. Things are getting tight over here.
What was the best part of your weekend?
