Okay, I've got to get this off my chest:

I have not run, not even once, since the marathon.

I've done two minute sprints in my Jillian Michaels plan, and I've almost ran (like when I went two blocks last week) a couple of times, but that's it.

And I have fallen off the Jillian Michaels wagon all week long. It has been a very long, not-get-home-until-well-after-dark week and it just hasn't happened.

I did receive my very first grant for my classroom today, though! I was ridiculously giddy when I opened the enevelope in the copy room and almost hugged the custodian who was innocently standing by. Then, I busted in on my principal while she was observing another teacher because I was too excited to wait to show her.

So, it's definitely been an exercise FAIL week, but at least it's not a complete FAIL. Tomorrow's the beginning of the weekend and fresh starts!


  1. Congratualtions on the grant! A friend of my also found out today she was awarded a grant as well. What great recognition!

  2. Oh ya for the grant!! Super exciting!! Once you fall off you can always get back on that wagon! =)

  3. Congrats on the grant!!!!

    And meh...you can take a break, sometimes you have to in order to get refreshed and excited about it again!
