My Stash. My Rut. My New Year.

Hiiiii!  Long time, no see.  My school year started up, and I seriously haven't had time to think about anything.  I don't mean to sound like a jerk about that -- You all get that we have busy lives, and there's no need to really point it out or talk about it.

*le shrug*

I can't even explain how or why this school year has demolished me.  I'm working at a new school, so I believe all of the changes of students, staff, support, etc. have really wrecked me.  Somehow, that's really messed with me on every level -- emotionally, physically, mentally.  What's weird is that I have so many Teacher friends, ones who have stayed at the same schools and with no major changes happening for them, and they're tanked, as well.  I'm not sure what it is, but we're moving right along, and that's all that matters.

Speaking of which, Halloween was kind of fun!  It took me ehhhhhhhh about 14 pictures to get the right one of Windy in her Halloween costume.  She didn't mind -- she got SO.MANY.COOKIES.

We got the right one (and this legit was the last picture I took of her), and she was a happy pup with all of those cookies in her tummy.

After a long day at school, I was able to break out with a nice stash!  Have I just met all of my students as of nine weeks ago?  Yes.  Have they already figured out that I <3 candy and Nutella?  You betcha. 

It helped that my neighbor, who's a Kindergarten Teacher, brought home her own enormous stash, and she shared with me.:)

Eating half of the candy seen above didn't make me feel great.  To be honest, I'm in some sort of rut for a long, long while.  I'm willing to go into further detail soon, as soon as I feel more organized with my thoughts.  The short version from what I've figured out about my fitness at the moment:  I keep getting injured.  I can't tell if these injuries are all in my head (I certainly don't want to be out for months again!), and I'm in such a rut over it, I'm not allowing myself to consistently work with it (i.e. strength training, Yoga, foam rolling, etc.).  There's something going on with my left hip, left IT band, and left foot (yup...still).  I'm not sleeping well due to the inconsistency.  It's such a mess, y'all.  I haven't been this inactive in years (prior to my injury).

I think that by coming back to blogging, I can keep myself much more accountable with workouts.  That's why some people blog, right?  We used to, anyway.  So I'm bringing it back! 

About ten days ago, Harry told me to make a decision about how I needed to proceed.  Setting a time limit or start date always seems to help me, and he somehow knows that.  So November 1st is my new year -- I don't have to wait until January 1st, dangit.  I have a lot of goals, even though the condition of a few things are questionable.  I'll go into those goals when I know more, and can actually acknowledge goals as realistic. 

In other news, I can't pull off certain attire.
Happy, happy new month, and I hope you have a wonderful day!<3
Please tell me a motivating story!  I need some inspo!

Do you remember your last rut?  How did you get out of it?

Tell me about a new show you've been watching!
