Substitute Teacher

So I have a break in my day that is 4 hours long. During this break I am often at my parent's house working out and then showering, having lunch and then returning to school.

Well today I am a substitute teacher which means that I am working literally ALL day long from 7:30 in the morning to 6:00 tonight. That is 10 and a half hours of literal straight work. Not the figurative work that I do most other days. I also don't get to work out because I will be making sure kids don't burn down buildings and attempt to do some work. I have already had to take away 2 electronic devices because they are not allowed on campus during school hours. I currently have a student glaring at me because I took away his ipod at the beginning of the period. I am pretty sure he is playing with his phone now...apparently he doesn't learn very quickly.

Oh well. This is really easy work for a quite a bit more pay.

I am tired. This weekend is going to be rad though.

Fire Alarm

As we are all well aware the current state of weather is torrential down pour. It is raining heavy and steady.

This is the setting that somebody used to be funny and pull the fire alarm. That is right. This means that we have to evacuate.

My class ran out to their evacuation zone. we stood in the ran for 5 minutes. we were allowed back in. In that amount of time it was enough to make me more than soaked. My pants are literally drenched and my hair is now dripping down my back. I don't get to go home until 7:00 tonight...this is going to be fun soaking wet.

Week One

I Have finished week one of my new running program. I was so tired today and didn't want to run at all. I thought I was going to die every minute of it, but I finished. I ran the whole thing for the 3 days with doing other physical activities on the off days. I am tired but also excited that I get to move on to week 2 on Wed after another rest day.

I need to prepare for my CAHSEE prep class that I am going to start teaching now. Enjoy your day :)

Working out

So one of things that I have been doing lately is working out. I used to work out every day when I was in college. It always made me feel great and I loved the adrenaline in my system. I have started a new system where I am working out everyday. Some days are a whole lot harder than others. I started a new running program that I am doing just about every other day. I cannot do it every day because it is intense and there has to be a "rest" day between sessions. During my rest day yesterday I decided to do an ab routine. This was really hard. I did "Abs of Steel". Let me tell you. If I am dedicated enough to do this on a regular basis I am pretty sure I really will have abs of steel. The title does not lie. I was really really sore last night and then this morning I thought I was going to die if I had to move my back in the slightest. After today's run I am feeling a lot better. I really like working out. I hope that if I keep this up and seriously stay dedicated to it I will be able to lose some weight, inches and regret.

I know that this is something that I can do and I am hoping that I continue telling myself that every day. Day 3 went well. Despite the fact that I wanted my run to do itself I got out there and I am really glad I did. I feel great.
