|My JV ladies @ their first game!!|
And, with all of this insanity in my life there is absolutely no time for snacking. My "menu" for Friday was pitiful. I had my yogurt for breakfast, probably a total of two or three bites of lettuce for lunch and two currly fries for supper. Smart? No. But my tummy was in knots all day. I was doing good to get that down. AND my scale sang me a happy tune for Sunday's weigh-in!!! I'm down to 206.6!!!
|About half of my Varsity squad!!|
I was a mean sponsor today!! We had an optional practice - mostly I just wanted my JV girls to have a little extra loving. BUT I made them warm-up. It was only about 95 degrees...so, I told them I wanted them to do two laps around the track. I didn't care how they did it. But, this meant I got half a workout in. (Total NSV - I wore shorts and ran IN PUBLIC...in front of my girls. And in front of the junior high and high school football teams and coaches!!) AND these little 14-17 girls could not keep up!! I ran the "longs" and walked the "shorts" and ran one circuit of bleachers. One of my kiddos said, "Wow, Campbell, now I see why your legs look like that!!" I think I will be doing this every afternoon - whether or not I have cheer practice!! It really pepped me up after a long day.
Speaking of long days, I was a total dipstick today. Being the mother hen that I am, I always help one of my kiddos mix his weight-gain shakes after workouts. So, today I put in the milk and the powder, screwed on the lid and proceed to shake what my momma gave me. Unfortunately I forgot to check the snap top lid. It wasn't closed. SO, I was wearing half a shake on my head, face, shirt, pants, etc. My hair looked like I'd put some serious gel in it. I was a hot mess. I looked like a hobo for the rest of the day...the only thing I had to change into was a T-shirt from last year!!
A couple of compliments made my day worth it though. One kid informed me that I was "looking poor" - at first I thought he was talking about my dress pants and T-shirt. BUT he said I needed to eat a sandwich before my ribs started poking out!! And then one of my kids said my face was so skinny!! And one of my girlies thought I'd borrowed a football player's shirt....cuz she said it was more like a dress!!! (Maybe they are alll fishing for good grades....but I will take the compliments!!!!)
Tomorrow is a low-key day. No before or after school practice. What shall I do with myself??? Oh yeah, I will begin working on cleaning up the cheer room and working on the football sign for the gym. I love being busy.
Then Wednesday starts the marathon all over again!! I wouldn't have it any other way!!!
