Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

Summer, Running, Training and Blogging

I can't believe that Lil Man has graduated from pre-school. It's been a great year for us. Truly, it's been wonderful, and I am sad to see it come to an end. Both Lil Man and I are struggling with leaving his awesome pre-school, but I know a new chapter awaits. And, I'm sure it will be great also. It's just a change. You know how that is.. change can be scary.. even if it's good.

But here comes summer.. and summer activities... and the balancing act of trying to figure out how to fit it all in.

In the past, the first thing that has been skipped has been my strength training.. or running.. or cross-training.. or all of the above.

I've added childcare back to my gym membership, and I'm planning on signing up for some personal training. I think this will help (or I hope) to keep me on track with my workouts. But I also know that's only once a week. So I've been charting out my tentative (and hopefully realistic) plan.

I plan to run 3 days a week (no specific mileage), cross train 2 days (but that may mean walking the amusement park or taking Lil Man to the swimming pool - trust me although it's fun, it can definitely be exhausting and a workout). And lift weights 3-5 days a week depending on what we have going on that week.

It looks like I'll be back to early morning workouts before Hubby goes to work. Now... to just force myself to get up... that's the hard part ... especially when I'm not getting a lot of sleep... but I know once I get back into the routine that it will be easier to continue to get up early.

As far as blogging goes, I'll be here. Truthfully, it's very discouraging to see the #'s or I should say lack of #'s when I look at stats when it comes to this tiny blog... but you know what... this is mine.... I've put a lot of time, energy, sweat and tears, but it's something that I enjoy... and for those 2 or 3 who read it.. thank you :) I plan to continue to write.. and to share 'me' with those of you who care to read it.

My family life is totally re-arranged during the summer... and it's a balancing act... but I wouldn't have it any other way...
