I titled this back to life because as summer comes to a close life has to go back to some semblance of order. No more sleeping in until whenever or lounging in PJs all day! Back to school night is this Thursday and school starts next Monday yikes!! Seriously, where did summer go? Don’t get me wrong , I LOVE fall. I love the clothes, accessories, and cooler temps, but I do love that summertime means laid back, whatever time.
Not only will we be thrust back into the grind of school but I will be back to the gym. After months off, and ugh I can definitely tell, I know I will be super sore, tired, and probably not make it through one class! Maybe not quite that bad, but my Zumba instructor is hardcore. I have used plenty of excuses not to exercise at home and also to eat not so great. My emotions got the better of me which in turn caused me to eat more chocolate and seek out other comfort food none of which is super healthy, minus the frozen yogurt. Funny how we feel good while we are eating poorly but afterwards it is like oh man why did I even do that?! I am paying the price for my slacking but I am ready to get back on track. My discipline will be back to where it was before, if not better! I have asked my husband to help hold me accountable, especially in the water intake area.
The first few weeks of school will be the hardest emotionally. My daughter will start first grade and my boy will start preschool. I will be alone for the first time since before I had my daughter. I seriously won’t know what to do with myself. I am trying to convince myself now that mindless munching is not the answer! My other plan is to not have anything I could munch on in the house unless it is fruit or veggies. If there is even one cracker or pirate booty box in the house fah-get-about-it! Have a great week everyone!
Good luck to all the finalists!! You all are an inspiration to so many!
