Drug Enduced Lifestyle Changes?

Okay, after the 3 AM wake up yesterday I felt REALLY wide awake. I honestly felt like I could conquer the world. Here's a list of things that I accomplished yesterday...
  • Instituted a new behavior plan in my classroom.
  • Rearranged my classroom.
  • Cleaned out a closet in my classroom that was seriously HORRIBLE. We're talking.. everytime I opened it, something fell on me. When the book fell on me, I lost it. I threw it across the room into the trash can (thank you basketball skills!) and took everything out and rearranged, de-cluttered, and threw away A LOT.
  • Rearranged my snack drawer at school-- it's sorted by color and size.
  • Cleaned off my desk (it needed it).
  • Kept my sanity in check.
  • Bought Jillian Michaels 30 day shred AND weights. I plan on starting this weekend.
  • Oh! And, I managed to teach all required subjects, made mother's day presents for the minis to take home this weekend, kept all children from killing themselves (or me) and there were zero curse words in the classroom all day. This is huge for us.
  • Had three adults ask me how many cups of coffee I'd consumed. Answer = zero. I cannot stand coffee.

If only I could accomplish this many things on a daily basis and still keep my sanity in check. If you know me in real life, you know I'm not organized.. not in the least. So this was DEFINITELY a lifestyle change for me. Also, I am allergic to working out.. so Jillian Michaels 30 day shred is a little out of my league. But, I'm going to do it.

I just can't decide if it's the steroids or the fact that I'm done with grad classes for three months and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Either way? I'll take a few days of waking up and feeling ready to go.
 
Seriously? I feel like I could change the world every morning now. Weird.

Ooooh! My sister and bf are both doing the shred and LOVE it - both saw results after just one use. I bought it, too...but unfortch have to wait 4 more weeks until I'm allowed to "resume normal activites." :)
