Then you have homework, papers, reports, tests and quizzes to study for at home. So, it isn't like you get to go to work, clock out, and come home to do whatever you want. Then if you have a job on top of that and anything else like children and housework...you have a really full plate! I don't have a job, but I do have a little girl (almost 2) and a hubby and house work. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is I feel ya! And you are doing well despite your obstacles!
I'm jumping in way late on this one.
I am on the teaching side of school (at a university). The semester gets busy for faculty as the semester draws to a close too - we get to grade all the work that students are busy completing. Also this semester I am taking over the teaching responsibilities for a colleague who is on maternity leave. So for the last three weeks of the term (one down two to go) I also have to teach three of her classes on top of my own.... Usually I do make sure I make it to the gym at least three mornings a week (my non-teaching mornings) and try to get some time in on my treadmill on the other mornings. But I am meeting myself coming around the corner right now and am really pressed for time. Next week won't be as busy as we will be doing a lot of review (and I have some TAs who will be doing that). All will be back to normal soon enough. Now I am simply trying to keep up with everything!
Lunch break is done and it's back to the books... Must review what I am going to be teaching tomorrow so I know what on earth I am talking about!
1) Break the "E" on my scale (no more error message)
2) 10% of weight lost
3) 20% of weight lost
5) Hit my high school weight 175 pounds
6) Final goal of 150! (this might be adjusted as I get closer)
