I know I'm late but I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year! As always I've started my New Year by setting some goals for myself professionally, spiritually, and of course physically.
Professionally: My students are taking the STAAR exam this year so I've been really trying to make my lessons and activities more rigorous. I'm also reducing the number of worksheets I use, instead I'm relying on hands on activities that make my students think.
Spiritually: I received a bible companion journal for Christmas that has weekly lessons to help better understand the bible. I plan on reading it for inspiration and strength.
Physically: Last, but not least I made a goal to slim down! I've met so many inspiring teachers that have done the work and slimmed down, that I think I can do the same. I know that I have a long road ahead of me but I truly feel that I can accomplish this with the support of my ig friends.
So to keep up with my physical goal I'm linking up with Teaching with a touch of Pixie Dust to bring you my slim down Saturday.
I did really well this week because I planned and prepared all of my meals in advance. I stayed away from the drive thrus and drank nothing but water and green tea. I also started using MFP again but had a hard time continuing to track everything, but I plan to do better.
I also plan to hit the gym! It's been super cold and wet here so all I wanted to do after work was come home and snuggle up on the couch.
I continue to look for motivation from all of my ig buddies, if they can do it, I can do it.
Quote of the week: If you fail to plan, you plan to fail!
