day #1

last night i started this mess officially.  after dinner, i didn't have any cookies, even though we have several varieties of fabulous trader joe's christmas cookies.  instead, i had some 'get a grip' tea and did yoga.  how wonderfully relaxing!  my goal is to do something that helps me towards the warrior dash every day, and to post about it here.  even if its just putting the cocoa almond butter back in the cabinet, its something.  tonight we're going to my dad and deb's for dinner, which always results in us eating way too much.  i'll have to figure out some alternative good i can do for myself.  maybe i'll walk around the school during one of my preps today.  maybe we'll have time between the insurance inspection (hurricane damage) and leaving for dinner.  we shall see.

warrior dash

I'M DOING THE WARRIOR DASH!  ed, lexi, brian, megan, kyle, fran, karen, and michelle are doing it, so i succumbed to peer pressure and signed up.  of course, i looked at the photo gallery of the obstacles after signing up.  for a moment i thought aloud, "i must be crazy."  my students wanted to know what exactly made me think that, outside of the normal reasons.  so i showed them.  "miss m, you're crazy."  "yes. yes i am."

so now, i have to actually get into running shape.  if i try to do a 3-mile death race i will, in fact, suffer death.  just fall over.  but don't worry, ed said he'd carry my lifeless corpse across the finish line as long as he could have my beer at the end.  that's true friendship. 

time to start training!
