I had a very nice Friday. My first hour observation went fine. I introduced a new lesson but I did not do any cool activities. My class was genuinely interested and asked questions. I have one more observation to do and I will make sure to put together a collaborative activity. I was able to spend the rest of the day going over yearbook pages that are due on Monday. My classes were poorly attended for various reasons but by 7th hour I only had about 8 kids in class. We played a card game and I promised them all extra credit for being at school when so many students had left early for the state basketball game. After school I took Balt for a short walk in the sunshine and then went to my favorite Friday night hot yoga. After yoga, I came home to chicken kale soup for dinner and the boys state basketball game on tv with my slippers on and no worries about parking! It ended up being a losing game which really puts a damper on my plans for a cool yearbook page, but oh well.
As for my diet saga... I lost 1/4 of a pound this morning, ironically. In general I feel better and am getting a better understanding of what I can eat and what I should avoid. I went out to lunch again today and got a rice noodle bowl. Whenever I eat anything, I log it and note how I feel. I am learning to notice how I react to food more accurately so that I know what to avoid.
