Working on a better me.

by - January 21, 2015

As a teacher, I am always making professional development plans to choose something I will focus on for the year.  For the record, this year I'm going over the Éducation Chrétienne 10, 20 et 30 curricula as I'm a little rusty with them and it's what I'm facilitating this year in the cyber world.
In January of each year, I also make some personal goals of things that wil lhelp me become a better person.
I'm please to report back today and show you some of the little things I have been doing to make myself...wait...I love Willis . He is so cute and smelly and I just want to hug him when he reads over my shoulder while I'm trying to write a post.
Go dance, child.
Go shake your cute little booty.

Okay, I'm back.  I shall quickly type this whilst my children dance to Just Dance (google the clips on Youtube and your kids will be entertained for hours too) (Lucia loves "I'm a Gummy Bear" and Willis loves the Mario one)
Here are a couple of things I've done this month:

1) Explore cooking.
Exhibit A: Salmon Wellington (this recipe was from a friend of mine, her family does it every Christmas on the 12 meatless dishes night)  (It was deeeelicious)

Exhibit B: Kale and Sweet Potato Pizza  (Kyla introduced me to this and I LOVE it.  You can find the recipe on the Simply FOODtastic tab, it's the very last one listed on the page)

Exhibit C: Nanaimo Cheesecake (a Pinterest find...I was intrigued because Nanaimo bars, hellloo!  This was the first cheesecake I have ever was really good, just not nanaimo bar enough.  It tasted more like cheesecake)

2) Be a creative dresser
I don't think I'll do any more challenges this year.  I have no desire to spend money on clothes. Shocking, I know.  Instead I've been following the challenge set out by Putting Me Together.  Last week was "wear a dress"  I wasn't going there in the winter.  But this week was "Wear something bright"  Here are my two interpretations:
A- Bright lips with dark outfit:
Look 2:  Bare face and bright cardigan.

I just realized I wore black leopard print on both days this week. Meow.

3) Be a healthier me
The HIIT treadmill sessions have been a huge hit and easy to stick to.  They last for the exact length of an episode of Friends on Netflix and my attnetion span doens't waver. Plus I like sprinting and I have a ball season to get fast for.
Currently I have been enjoying a 30 day Yoga Challenge on youtube..(Free!!) (Only 30 minutes!!!)
I love her style of yoga and her sense of humour.  I actually want to go have coffee with her instead of exercising. Another reason to keep "Visit Texas somewhere" on my travel list.

30 Days of Yoga – Day 18

By the way, I forgot to add this picture to my travel post on Monday.  This is Dan's idea of fun:  Science Trip.  This does look interesting, I just don't have any desire to do a cruise.

Also, don't you find it overwhelming with all the wonderful places to visit in this world? Where do you even begin?
