Odds and Ends- This and That

I know I say it every time and every time I really DO mean it so maybe this time I won't say it and it will happen.  Anyway, life is just life- back to school, back to reality.  I am back at the same school and teaching the same grade.  We have two new administrators and it's completely different!  I am exhausted at the end of the day but it's a good exhaustion.  And yet, because of that exhaustion and our silly schedule (teachers are 8:00/8:15 to 4:00 but students are 8:45-3:45) I haven't found that balance yet.
I am getting there and making time for things that were once important to me that I pushed to the side.  I have signed up for some races (one is Saturday yikes!), started making some cards again,

and actually tried something new this past week when I did Pilates after school with two co-workers.  I ran off and on this summer- not as often as I would have liked but more than I have in the past.  However, it was HOT and there were a LOT of days that the weather just didn't cooperate.

 And then there were my feet- they also didn't cooperate- I believe I have the beginnings of PF and ended up scheduling a podiatrist appointment for the 19th.  As much as I am dreading it- I am also looking forward to getting answers and a plan.  This summer was a busy one- I had trainings for work, a trip back to Knoxville and Atlanta, a trip to Ohio, time spent with my nephew, and so on.

I am in the midst of setting goals, making plans and trying to work my way back.  What are your tips and tricks?

Make them manageable. Make them reachable but challenging at the same time. Start slow and build momentum. Start small and add to them as you reach one goal.
