Happy Labor Day bloggy friends! I hope everyone is enjoying their day off! I know I am! I was able to sleep in and run some errands! It's nice to be home at 2pm with very little to do the rest of the day!
So today I am linking up twice! First with Farly from Oh'Boy 4th grade for her monthly currently! I can't believe September is already here! Fall is my favorite season and I can't wait to plug in my new wallflowers from Bath and body works to get my house and classroom smelling good:)
My favorite things:)
Well, my new life attitude by far is my favorite thing right now(see below). My second favorite thing is my hubby. He is my rock! He is supporting me with these new life changes and I am so thankful to have him by my side! I would be lost without him! Last, I am so loving He and She Eat Clean blog. I love their recipes, their inspiration and motivation to make the changes in my life! I can't wait to start my new journey! Here are the pics of the pumpkin protein bars I just made! They are SO good!
Go check their blog out...you won't be disappointed!
I am also linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made it. This is the first Monday made it turned monthly instead of weekly! I can't wait to see what everyone has made.
I have been working on adding a vocab center to my literacy block! This will go with word word in hopes they can practice their vocabulary words!
I created a vocabulary wheel:)
I was thinking you can use this in two different ways. One, have the kids complete each section of the wheel for each word. Two, they can use a paperclip and a pencil to spin what to do with their vocabulary word! What do you think??? If you are interested in having this center idea you can get it HERE for free for today only!!! I hope you love it!
And last, but not least. Yes, I have some life changes ahead of me. I have always been up and down in weight my whole life...it's SO frustrating! Starting tomorrow, I am planning on changing the way I treat my body. I am working on eating clean, working out more, and setting small goals of getting this weight off.
I have known for awhile I have gained some weight since my wedding (may 2011) and never did anything about it. For the past few weeks my foot has been feeling better and I knew that once school started it would also be a fresh start for me!
I am eager to get back into the swing of things and make a change for me! So I bought a new gym bag, got shower shoes, and stuff to go in the bag. I am all ready!
But what really hit home...was a picture a friend posted last night on Facebook from the party I went to this weekend. I finally saw it, I finally saw how much weight I have gained, how unhealthy I am and how I really need to do something about it. I would post the picture on here...but I am embarrassed...very:( Instead of me sitting here wondering what went wrong...I am changing:)
Here is to the new Tonya!
