Day 2 and a random rant

Day 2 went really well for The Shred Challenge. I really like how at the end of the session Jillian talks about not quitting and going all the way. It really pumps me up. I haven't done Day 3 yet because when I woke up I could barely breathe through my nose and I think I have a sinus infection. I am not going to let it get the best of me and I will do the workout before I go to bed tonight.

Random Rant: So, like I have said before I am a 6th grade teacher to students who grew up with English as their second language, ESL. I love my job because I reall feel like I am making a difference. I want my students to remember me as a cool teacher who taught them life lessons. Well, today I found out that one of my precious boys are reading on a kindergarten level. He asked me how to spell CAT today. Do you know how hard and fast my heart broke today when I found this out?? You could literally see the anger fumes steaming off of my head when I thought about all of his elementary teachers who let this poor child pass through their classroom and did NOTHIING to help this poor child. Get off your ass from behind the desk and sit down with this child!! Stay during your lunch period and help him learn how to write CAT!! Don't ignore him because it is too hard and you don't get paid enough to deal with his behavior problems. He misbehaves because people have told him he was dumb his whole life!! Now that I know, how can I ignore this? I won't!!!

Okay, I am off of my rant. I will post pictures tomorrow of me after my Day 3 tonight.

Confession: I ate some of the chocolate bars that the kiddos were selling at school. I did count the calories!! LOL

Cheer: Tomorrow I am going to get my first ever massage!! Woohoo!!
