I get dirty on the first day of school...

All morning long today, all I could keep thinking about is that scene from "Finding Nemo" where he keeps banging himself into his dad and yelling, "First day of school! First day of school!" I don't know why, but maybe I heard that phrase so many times it felt like I was having it drilled into my head. :P

Today is, was, the first day of school. I will admit that I woke up after having nightmares about my class. I dreamt that my PM class wouldn't listen, and they were all standing on their chairs throwing paper and bouncy balls at the walls. Don't ask, I really don't know where that came from but eh, that was how I awoke today. Anyway, despite my horrific nightmares, I woke up and headed off like the good little lemming that I am to CF.

I almost, and I mean ALMOST, turned around and left when I saw what the board said. Now, I'm not a wuss. Not by any stretch of the means, but when I saw the white board I just about teared up. After Murph, I'm having some trouble. I'm sore, I hurt, I don't want to workout. But yet, Jerry was determined to make me do the "Filthy Fifty." Oh yes, I did indeed do the Rx'd version of the Filthy Fifty today. On my first day of school, Jerry made me get Filthy. Sometimes, I don't like Jerry very much. :(

Our version of the Filthy Fifty looked like this:

50 Knees to elbows
50 KB high pulls
50 Dumbbell thrusters (15lb)
50 Burpees
50 Dumbbell push press (15lb)
50 Double unders (I subbed 150 singles)
50 Box Jumps
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 KB swings (35 lb)
50 Walking lunges (each leg)

We did this back in April, but it was a different version. It was more metcon and not much weighted stuff at all. I did that one in 37:09. This one I did in 38:32. The burpees felt bad. Very very bad. My shoulders are still on fire from Murph. I just couldn't do the push-ups. The burpees alone probably took 5-6 minutes. Not a horrid time, just didn't feel good. It'd be nice to feel good in the blue room again. I haven't felt good since I went back to work.

On a happy note this weekend, Michigan and Virginia Tech lost and Penn State won! :) Yay! :) I'm looking forward to college football this weekend and the end of my first week.

I'm crashing off the Zone big time. I need to get my schedule situated and get my butt back on track before it blows up like a balloon. One of my students brought me brownies today. Where is that sticktoitiveness I had in May when I took that stuff to the teachers lounge? I ate them... all... and they were good. I had pizza and ice cream last night too... if there is a Zone hell, the throne is reserved for me...

As a side note, I just went to the bathroom and realized that I actually put my underwear on inside out today and just realized it. Yeah, it's been that kind of day... good night Irene... Hopefully I'll make it home before 9 tonight. :(

and I thought I was the only one screwing up the eating. It must be something being pumped into the atmosphere, no?

Hey...you got the workout in, sore and all. That's what counts.

Only 270 days to Memorial day!

You're already counting? ;)

I had ice cream three days in a row... and then the brownies... I don't know where my dedication went... I think it flew off with my sanity and they are having a delightful time together... :P

I'm holding my hands up..my eating sucks.

Not as much as doing 50 burpees sucks however.

I'd have to go "supersize me" for things to be that bad.

Yup..back to school over here too. I advise a lot of teachers from here on in..
