Two hour delay! On two hour delays do you hit the alarm and sleep in or get up anyway? I like to get up and enjoy some time by myself. This morning, I am watching This Is Us. #twohourdelay#ilovebuddytheelfmemes#thisisus edit to add...Turned into a snow day! 🎉
I often wonder what I was like as a kid. Was I sweet and snuggly? Was I an asshole? Did I get along with others easily? I wonder if these things will be important for them to know as they grow up. So for now, I'm keeping track of their sweet personalities as they grow and change so fast. So on the hard days I can look back in sweet admiration of the many things I'm savoring right now.
Also...playsilks are amazing. These are from Amazon and I contemplated getting the expensive Sarah's Silks but decided to go with this 6 pack instead. They have held up really well and are played with daily. I'll put the link in my bio.
Throwback to a few summers ago. I love this picture.❤️ Yesterday, was the first day of spring and a glimpse of the weather ahead. I look forward to my summers with my family. This picture just reminds of what summer feels like...carefree, happy, and giggly. #throwbackthursday#allthefeels#cantwaitforsummer 🌞
Yesterday was our Monday Meeting after coming back from spring break. One concern that kept popping up was “people are bullying themselves.” We discussed and expanded on the meaning or examples of this concern.
We all know we say things that are hurtful to ourselves. Sometimes we don’t even realize we are putting ourself down. “I can’t do this.” “I’m stupid.” “I can’t believe I just did THAT!” “I don’t like _____ about myself.” .
Many times we’re our biggest enemies. Sometime we choose not to listen to the positive people in our lives. My students do their best to lift one another up, but let’s be realistic...that are still 5th graders and kids. They joke and go to far, they tease because “they are my best friend and know I’m kidding.” Does that justify our actions? No.
We rise up by lifting others up, especially when they don’t find positivity in themselves. Remember to be the change and not follow in the negative talk and actions. Lift one another up. Be a LEADER and RISE.

Another story of success! Thank you Jole’ for sharing! #transformationtuesday . In late 2017, I made the decision to get healthy and lose the unnecessary weight I had packed on at a fast pace for 2 years.
For the first 3 months of 2018, I was unsuccessful. ❌ Eating healthy inconsistently😕
❌Killing myself at the gym inconsistently🙄
❌ Consistently doing it all wrong
The picture on the left was a month after I had lost “some” weight on my own. BUT an eye opener for sure. What I saw in the half mirror didn’t look anything like what I see in this picture😢
(PS everyone needs a full mirror😂, I avoided all mirrors😩) Do I have any regrets about 2018?
I knew about this program for 5 months before I actually decided to get on it. My regret is I didnt choose this program sooner.
I feel so much better today!
Didn’t beat myself up at the gym
Didn’t take supplements
Didn’t skip meals
Chose to eat healthy
This program has made me happier than any food I have ever eaten.
Vacation the last week of summer break is definitely the way to go. We are rested, relaxed, and ready to start the school year!

Don’t ask me why I have this picture framed. 🤦🏼♀️
It’s not like I have it sitting around for people to admire. 😆
And this was pre-glasses so I thought it fitting to take off my spectacles for the comparison. 🤓
I’m sure Bernie found it one year and framed it in an effort to be silly. 🤪
Cuz that’s how he is. 🤦🏼♀️😄
Meet 21 year old Brittany. .
Working full time as a 3rd grade teacher in her first year of teaching. 👩🏼🏫
Exhausted every day after work. 😴
Never exercising. 🤫
Having a gym membership, but rarely using it. 🏋🏻♀️
Hitting the McDonald’s drive thru for breakfast more times than she cares to admit. 🙈
Ya, living the single life...but, just forgetting a few key elements like taking care of her health. 😬
Needless to say, it wasn’t a surprise that a year later when I went in for a routine doc appointment, she told me I needed to lose 30 pounds. 😳😳
Whether you’re single, or a busy mom of 5, regular exercise and intentional eating goes a L O N G way!!!
Although I’m not teaching in a formal classroom, I’m able to teach in a virtual environment...teaching other women how to live their best lives through exercise and nutrition...and still other women how to pursue THEIR dreams with this amazing job opportunity!💕
Have you made a goal to get in your best shape this year?🙌🏼
Or a goal to get a part time job, but you need something you can do on your own time, at your own pace?
What if i told you you can do B O T H!!!

Way too often we base our decisions off of a feeling. Am I right?! When we don’t FEEL like waking up early, we don’t. When we don’t FEEL like doing something, most of the time we just don’t.
Could you imagine what you could do if you based your decisions on your goals and not your current feeling?
Let’s start making decisions not by what FEELS good now, but by what means the most for your future.
Think about where you’ll be 4 months from now If you start to BELIEVE in yourself, and quit doing what you FEEL like or DONT FEEL like 🤷🏻♀️😘
I didn’t get where I am because I didn’t FEEL like it that day. GOALS, people! MAKE THEM!
Go after what you want yo😎. It’s not gonna be handed to you. At least for me, nothings EVER been handed to me. But you can CHOOSE to play the HELL OUTTA the cards you’re dealt, or not. 🥰
The first full week of school is underway 👩🏼🏫!! This year the second grade team has the luxury of one-to-one chromebooks! 🙌🏻 💻! So, my goal this week is to get them all familiar with their own log-ins and remind them of all the chromebook ropes! #teachersofinstagram#secondgradeteacher#momteacher
