Despite advance planning, and a whole lineup of things ready to go this morning, I woke up late (thanks to the husband) and found myself rushing out the door, not for a pleasant walk, but for the three minute drive to school.
I can't tell you how ridiculous it feels to drive a mile to the school, when the walk from home takes almost the same amount of time, once you factor in parking, unloading and all that jazz. It is so silly.
But rather than risk it this morning, we drove, and made it to the new classrooms just as the bell rang.
The lunches I packed went over well, finger sandwiches and a few cookies, apples and cheese and crackers. Not the most nutritious of lunches, but I figure we'll work up to salads and other veggie intensive fare.
I'm really, really struggling right now to get back into my exercise groove. I need to challenge myself again, I think. I should really pick a daily hour and stick with it. Unfortunately, I haven't found that magic hour - and that kind of thinking keeps me from just fitting it in as best as I can during the day.
Tonight, I'm shot. Absolutely spent, both mentally and physically. Probably from all the Riverdancing I was doing to celebrate the start of school. But I'm going to set my alarm for 5:15 am tomorrow, so I can squeeze in my DVD workout before the kids wake up. That will start my day off right.
But you know what? Even if I don't, I'm not going to bed tomorrow until I've managed to work up a sweat. I need it, for the endorphins, for the routine, for the positive impact on my day.
You probably need it to. What are you doing for exercise these days?
