Pleasantly surprised

After drifting off to sleep at a relatively early hour last night, chubby-cheeked baby in the crook of my arm, I woke up feeling quite refreshed today.  I suppose that’s good considering my 12+ hour day!  Though I still have a few things to do, I’m about to call it a night and turn in.  I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will never be caught up on everything and in the grande scheme of things some of what I worry about just isn’t worth it.

Today was the first day of cheer practice and I had 11 girls come out for 7th grade, with another 9 in attendance for 8th grade.  I think we’re going to keep it in two teams which might work much better for practice schedules and so forth.  They did a great job learning the first 10-count drill and seem to be a pretty good group so far.  I can’t wait to work them a little harder and join in on some of their warm-up so I’m getting a slight workout too!

Following practice I wrapped up a few things in my classroom, chatted with the 8th grade coach and headed off to weight watchers.  I was pleasantly surprised with my 2.4lb loss this week and decided that it was a lucky break…again!  I had a friend join last week, so having a closer accountability partner is nice.  Plus, there are two colleagues of mine at the meetings and another couple folks on plan in our small group.  That placement is nice because folks are bringing healthy treats since there are so many of us trying to “be good.” 

What pleasant surprises have you had recently?

  1. Hey, you are coaching? That is cool. I’ve coached the youth girls now for 4 years. Not sure how much longer I can deal with 8-10 year olds. Talk about attitude. I have a massive amount of cheers if you want to take a look. You’ll, I’m sure remember some. I can email them to you just let me know what your email is.
    Take care,

  2. Congratulations on your weight loss!! You’re doing GREAT! Enjoy working with the cheerleaders as well. What fun you’ll have.
