Weekends… Setbacks.. Struggles

This week I definitely wasn’t as disciplined as I would have liked to be. Weekends are a struggle for me because I get out of routine and and it makes it that much harder to get back on track. This weekend I went to Saskatoon so this weekend consisted of going out to eat, and not on my regular routine. This definitely affected me going in to this week and this is not my best week.. My workouts have been sporadic and my eating has not been great. For next week I am thinking I will repeat workout week 3, and that is A-okay. I think it is important to recognize that sometimes you might have an off week and get off track, but that doesn’t mean all progress is lost. I think you just have to take it with a grain of salt and do better the next day.

This week I had planned to talk about what I eat in a week, meal planning, and meal prepping. I decided to save that for next week’s post, because I found a new app I want to dive into and give you my feedback and opinions. It is hard not to get discouraged when you are not doing as well as you had hoped. I have to remember I am human and not perfect. I can only improve and next week I will do my best.

Sorry this weeks post was short and sweet, I will keep you updated on how next week goes.

Anyone have tips for when you are feeling discouraged?

Twitter Chats…YES!

When I first heard we had to do a twitter chat, I wasn’t too excited about it. I thought I would be bored and basically talking to myself and lose my measly 11 followers..  I was definitely wrong about this! On Tuesday I joined an #edchat that was facilitated by Mark E. Weston. This twitter chat wasn’t as typical as the question 1: answer 1: format I have seen previously.  The topic we were discussing was “How do we go from teacher centered learning to student centered learning?”. I thought it was awesome to have feedback from other educators and also have your thoughts and ideas challenged. These chats are a great way to collaborate with educators from a variety of places and with a variety of backgrounds. I had people responding to my ideas and comments, and it was great to see if people agreed or had other input to give. I kept getting notifications of people replying to me or retweeting me and it felt great considering this twitter of mine has such a slim following. I even was given a shoutout by the facilitator and gained 10 followers so now I am up to 21! Woo hoo!

Overall my opinion on twitter #edchats? I love engaging with other educators through twitter chats. I had fun and actually learned a lot and questioned my own thoughts and ideas. I will definitely be participating in some more twitter chats to continue growing myself as an educator!

What are your thoughts on twitter chats? Let me know!
