Week 2: A hard healthy week
Week two has not been easy at all. I have felt overwhelmed, been sick and not been to the gym as many times as I would like. Starting my teaching practicals has made life rather busy. I really admire the people who work full time, blog and manage to get to the gym. I have however managed to stay healthy in my eating which I’m proud of.
Monday was fine as I was home the whole day. I managed to get to the gym and I really pushed myself which I am proud of. I also made sure to eat healthy foods. Knowing that my week would be busy I made a container of salad for the week’s lunches.
Tuesday is when I starting doing my teaching practice, this came as a total shock to my body. I was up by 5:45, at school before 7, in the class till 1 and then I went to the gym. I do not know how I managed to get to the gym but somehow I did it. That night I was however in bed before 7:30.
Wednesday was the same but this time I had netball practice till 2 and then teacher prep meeting till 3. I managed to keep my food choices healthy but I did not make it to the gym. Being in a classroom with 20 seven-year-olds is so exhausting. The constant flow of questions and walking up and down drains a person more than any gym class I have been too.
Thursday was another exhausting day. After school, there were netball matches till 5 pm. It was meant to be till 6 pm but it started to pour with rain. Yay for finishing early but I got so wet in the rain that my clothes had to be left in the bathtub to dry.
Friday morning I woke up with the worst throat ache but thankfully it was Friday. After a very long week, I finally got some time to relax that afternoon.
This week I am proud to say my meals have been healthy and I have kept to my three meals a day routine. I am also having a morning snack when the learners have their break and this has been a healthy snack. Every day I make sure I eat a good breakfast so that I have enough energy for the morning. When one is running after kids you need your energy trust me. I have had a salad for lunch each day with either chicken or mince for my protein and when it comes to dinner I make sure to have the right amount of protein and vegetables. It has not been easy but I find that being prepared ahead of time really helps.
