I’ve been back home in MD for a little over a week and I am happily settling back into my normal routine. I’ve unpacked, caught up on laundry, and decluttered. I took a few days off work to catch up on life and to spend time with my daughter who just started 3rd grade!! We went back to school shopping…talk about a diva! She definitely has strong opinions on what she wants to wear and is all into accessorizing this year! We got her some cute, new, mini “grown up” clothes from Kohl’s and stocked up on accessories (necklaces, earrings, and scarves) at Claire’s…her 9th birthday is literally right around the corner (September 6th)! Not to sound like MY mother, but OMG, where does the time go?!?! We plan on spending the weekend hiking and exploring caverns in Luray, VA! Yay! I’m so excited about our little road trip!! 🙂
By the way, are you all enjoying all of the adorable back to school pictures as much as I am?? I hope so, because here is another one of my favorite gal (So I may be a LITTLE bit biased 😉 )
Of course, we got her signed up for way too many activities this school year! She’s registered for another year of gymnastics (her favorite), swimming lessons, girls on the run, and guitar lessons. I decided to sign up for guitar lessons too because I’ve always wanted to learn….and if I’m going to be taking her every week, I figured I might as well give it a shot! Oh, and I’m super, geeky excited about the guitar lessons! All of these after school activities means sticking to a routine is CRUCIAL, and I’ll be getting up waaayyyy before the crack of dawn for morning work-outs! So far so good, I all ready got in two 6 mile runs, a one mile swim at the Y, and a kettlebell workout in this week! 🙂 I’m feeling fantastic!!
How is the beginning of the school year going for all the other parents and teachers out there?! How will it change your work-out routine? Do you find it more or less difficult to work-out during the school year versus the summer?
