It has been a crazy few days!
Yesterday I taught my lesson. Again, my teacher made me nervous before I started. She asked me as I walked in the door if I was sure that I wanted to teach my lesson. I really started to feel like she didn’t want me to teach it! And, right after the bell rang, she proceeded to tell the class that they still have the option to opt out. I thought she was pushing it a lot – my lesson really wasn’t that bad! Overall, it went really well. I had a lot of great questions, and I’m pretty confident that they got what I wanted them to get out of it. My teacher did compliment me afterwards – I guess I have what “it” is. (I think Zac Brown wrote the song about me… ) 🙂
Anyway – the rest of the day was spent studying for my exam. I’m admittedly getting a bit burned out. I mean, I have been in school since I graduated high school. Dare I say, almost 8 years ago?! Yikes! And then it was off to club swimming where I found out that they are hiring *another* coach. It doesn’t make me happy. It means that I’m out of a portion of my job. I’m starting to think that my time at that swim club may be coming to an end in the next few months. I don’t feel appreciated. I was upset about it last night. We’ll see what happens when the new coach actually starts…
For breakfast today I attempted to make oatmeal. It didn’t work – I don’t know what I did wrong. It wasn’t creamy or anything. Just semi-cooked oats that fell apart. I think I’ll have to try the steel cut oats tomorrow. Does anyone have any tips? I love the stick-to-your-ribs oatmeal.
Today was my exam. I think it want pretty well – considering the amount of time that I put into studying. I was lucky that there were two history questions on the exam. I usually pick those. He curves the exams anyway. It shouldn’t be too bad. 🙂
After my exam, I headed to the gym to put in 45 minutes on the elliptical. It didn’t seem to bother my foot – which is really good news! I do want to get into an exercise class – I miss kickboxing and spin. But, I should probably wait a little longer for my stretches to kick in so my foot can heal.
It was Chicken Parmesan tonight for dinner, served with leftover pasta (STILL!) and green beans. It was really, really yummy.
I contribute it’s deliciousness to the breadcrumbs I got from an Italian grocery store. They have the best stuff at the ethnic stores – I go whenever I can. (It’s usually cheaper too!) I need to get brave enough to go into a Middle Eastern or Indian store. I haven’t tackled those just yet.
I picked up a pedometer today – I’m going to try to do the 10,000 step challenge. I’ll let you know how I do tomorrow! I’m also starting the 100 Pushups Challenge tonight before I go to bed. Has anyone tried it before?
Tomorrow I have an exciting day lined up. I’m off to Madison in the afternoon to watch the Division 2 state swim meet! A few of my high school swimmers are competing along with a few club swimmers. It is always jam-packed and a very exciting meet. I’m going to watch diving – one of my old high school swimmers won last year and she’ll be competing again this year. Although you get there early, it’s nice because you get a parking spot (it’s hard to find one!) and you are assured a good seat (people are ruthless!). I’ll stay for about half of the meet and then I’m off to meet an old friend of mine for dinner. It should be a good – but long – day.
You probably won’t hear from me tomorrow – so have a great weekend! I’m off to make some cookies for the hubby. He’s been bugging me – and he promised that he would take the rest of them to work so they don’t sit around here for me to eat! G’night!
