One Week Down

Well, I finished my first week of teaching. I have never been so tired in my life! I am completely exhausted! That being said, I absolutely love it! It's definitely going to be a learning process. I already have some new ideas about how I'm going to do things differently this week. I'm excited to be teaching, but I was really glad to see the weekend. :)

In other news, Eldon went back to Murfreesboro leaving me here in Knoxville. We are going to be doing the long distance marriage thing until he graduates in December. I'm not excited about it, but we've had a lot of practice with long distance. Only 119 days until he gets to move back! :)

This was a short update, and I apologize, but life's a bit crazy and busy right now!

Happy Saturday!

Clinic Appointment Today

My clinic appointment was today, and I have to say that I was a little nervous about it due to the lack of exercise in my life lately. The good news is, I was wrong to be worried, because my lung function actually increased! In May, my lung function had fallen to 52%. It was extremely disappointing, but time had gotten away from me with all of the new stuff popping up in my life. The summer continued to follow the same pattern of being super busy, so I wasn't sure what to expect when it came to today. So, the results of my PFT today was..... drum roll.... 60%!!!!! I am back on track!

As I already mentioned, I have not been exercising like I should lately. I have a plan in place to fix that. I signed up for my first 5k run! It's a color run, so it will be a lot of fun, and it is October 6th. I figured that if I went ahead and signed up for one, I would have no choice but to train for it! To go along with that, my goal for my next appointment is 70%. 10% is a big jump, but I think I can pull it off if I really put everything I have into it! My next appointment is November 21st, so I have plenty of time to work on it.

Happy Wednesday!
