Spring Break Fever

One of the best things about being a teacher is....Spring Break!! And summer too. LOL

I have it bad this year. Spring Break fever has hit me and all I wanted to do this morning was sleep in. I didn't get my workout in this morning that I was hoping for. Tonight I have to do my Couch to 5k Week 4 Day 3. Wish me luck on that one!

I am a little worried about Spring Break because I will be home all day with the kiddos and that means temptations!! Snacking all day on chips and junk. I just have to have a plan before Monday on my snacks. I do plan on being very active by going to the zoo and walking around the Rodeo every day. The snacks are the killer though. I am going to stock up on fruits, lots of fruits.

I had set a goal to lose 6 more inches by March 15 and I have only lost 1 so far. Not too happy about that. Waking up in the morning lately has been hard. I think that if I had gotten up every morning like I should have I would have been well on my way. I am going to get up tomorrow morning and sweat my butt off. Saturday and Sunday mornings are all about cardio, cardio, cardio!

I will keep you updated!

Confession: I still can't kick my sugar habit. Or my eating it in the car before I get home habit.

Cheer: I have been turning down food at school that other teachers offer me. I also stood up for myself yesterday to some teachers who were trying to take advantage of me!


  1. Being a teacher and trying to lose weight is never easy. At the school I teach at - teachers are always bringing in stuff to eat for all the rest. (Small Private School) It can get very tempting sometimes with some of what they bring in.

    Don't forget about the veggies as you stock up on the fruits. Get some of those steam bags and put a couple pieces of broccoli in it - steam it - and snack away. Healthy.

    You could also make smoothies for your family. Healthy and kids would like them. I read on a blog where someone used the smoothie mix and then froze them for cold treats.

    Hope some of this helps for your Spring Break fever.

  2. I hear Ya I am so ready fro spring break even though I volunteered to work. Sigh.

    I love fiber one bars if you have not had them they fill you up I eat those as a snack and tons of water lately and its been keeping me full.

    Good Luck!

    What grade do you teach? I never asked.
