6/8/15 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Wednesday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 8. June 2014 19:20

Yesterday was our last day of students and it was bittersweet.  I felt pretty emotional.  I had a student graduate from sixth grade today and I've had him for four years.  I was pretty weepy during the slideshow and when all the teachers waved good-bye to the buses.  I felt so proud and so worried to see this student go on to the junior high.  He was a really creative and humorous kid.  I hope he finds success in his years to come.

Today is an in-service day and to celebrate the end of school and bond with the teachers everyone is going out to a restaurant.  I'm sure food and beverages will be consumed and for some reason it's ridiculous but if I'm not partaking I feel left out.  People wonder why I don't do after school happy hours and I get a lot of grief for it.  It's frustrating to me for a few reasons:  if I'm not going to be eating and/or drinking it's just not something I really want to do and I love my family.  It sounds silly and I'm sure all of them do too; but after school I'm tired and I just like to go home and hang out with my husband and son.  I have several close friends that I see frequently outside of school and that's enough for me.  Is that bad?  Should I be doing more "team building" after school with everyone?  Probably but it's so hard to convince myself after I've been gone from my son all day.  I'm already gone every Thursday night basically until my son goes to bed because of Jenny Craig.  The guilt continues.  How to be a good mom, wife, friend, daughter, and even colleague eats at me constantly.  Maybe the guilt never goes away?

Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
