I have a somewhat bad teaching schedule this year but if ask me at work it is wonderful and great. I can log in over 3,000 steps and not notice until the evening when my legs hurt and feet. The powers to be thought give me this schedule I would quit.
When I get to work I meet our buses and have a short walk to my classroom pushing a wheelchair. Then I am in my classroom. Then 2nd period is planning today I had to run over to another building and return to my room. I usually have some walking to do during this period. Then off for my about 5 minute walk out to another classroom. I get 10 lovely steps and one long ramp to do. Sorry no stairs but the length of two portables. Then back across the campus for 4th period in just 5 minutes. (lunch) I was at about 1500 steps at this point. After that class I return to my classroom for 5th block, this is done as quickly as possible being I will have my whole class standing in front of my door. Almost all the students come from the class next door. Then I am back off to drop a student off 5 stairs there and back down the same stairs quickly again to the 6th period. I do this part as quickly as I am already late. I hate to disturb that class when I enter. Back across to pick up the same student drop him off back to where I was during 6th block. This is done as quickly as possible being I am already past the 5 minute passing period. Finally my day is done I then slowly walk to my classroom to do paperwork. Today at this point I reached 3, 500 steps.
Here is my issue, at night even after I eat a nice dinner, I end up hungry after a short amount of time. Last school year dinner at 6 – 6:30pm really needed a snack or was hungry after dinner.
5:30 to 6 pm - Dinner is usually a small to medium salad, (lettuce, tomatoes, maybe some cheese), 4 to 6 oz of chicken, ½ cup of some type of carb, and more steamed vegetables. (green beans or broccoli) 32 oz of splenda ice tea or power aid zero if I have a salt ring.
8 pm – 8:30 pm I end up having a snack of fruit or graham crackers and peanut butter or some yogurt. I feel hungry.
9- 9:30 pm Bed even with that snack I am only going to bed with bs 100.
I end up having to get up to eat something being I will feel very hungry by 11 pm. I have tried drink a large amount of water about 32 oz before bed to stop this no luck.
Fasting bs 74 – 99
Breakfast is at 6 – 6:30 am – Go Lean Crush or Oatmeal and eggs
Lunch 10 am- sandwich and fruit or sandwich and yogurt about 45 carbs
I am trying to remember to eat a snack at 3 pm this is very hard. Being I am usually over heated by this point. I have now drunk at least 3 16 oz bottles of water or more during the school day. Not including my usually 20 oz with am pills and cereal.
5: 30 to 6:30 dinners
Where am I going wrong or is all that walking catch up to me at night? I feel like I end up eating so much at night which I have been told is not good.
