Back to Life...

Back to reality...
Should have been playing on the radio when the alarm went off this morning. Today is a new day, everything changes today, right??? Well the morning went something like this, radio goes off, I finally roll out of bed (last day of gluttony was not good to me- dinner- cheese sticks, chicken strips, fish sticks, and tator tots- really I couldn't make that up). My mission today is to get everything that I want to get done and the things that need to be done with 2 kids in tow (Clovis Unified played this cruel trick on its parents by making today a Staff Development day rather then a regular teaching day- AGHHHH!). First words out of Jack's mouth "can't I just sleep in?" WHAT!?! This is the kid who since school has gotten out on the 19th of December has been up by 7:30 everyday, since the Wii was delivered Christmas morning it has been earlier then that some days. I was already feeling the diet crab coming out, "get up". At breakfast I carefully measured the proper serving of cereal and watched the kids eat their food. The En Vogue song kept replaying in my head "back to life... back to reality...". Two annoying lines repeated in my head. At the gym during my Fitness Challenge Test I got the worst news of the new year, the 6 Weeks of Gluttony has left me way over the weight that I thought I was and with a BMI that I don't even want to talk about. Cruel! At least I should be able to listen to some great music on my iPod while I do the mile test- WRONG!- iPod needed to be charged. I certainly hope this is not the way this week is going to go because I could fall off the wagon any minute now!
I wish it were Friday!

I'm so jealous-our kids don't go back until tomorrow. But I guess I'll take sleeping in this morning over having to get them all ready just to have them home a few hours later. Thanks for your comment....I love having bloggy friends ;)

How many calories for the champagne? I totally would have drank yours. Taken one for the team. What did you measure out for lunch?
