time to get back in the game

Monday, September 03, 2007

well its been sometime since using the blog...almost 2 full months!

Not only have I NOT used the blog, my eating habits haven't been great either. Exercise....this past week hasn't happened.

I will be starting my jobs with the school on Wednesday. II'm trying to figure out how/when I will do my exercising. I'll be go to the school from 7:15-9 then I come home until 10:30ish. I have a hour and half that I figured I would use to eat breakfast and get our dinner going for that day. I have to be back to the school by 11 until either 12:30 or 1 pm...I'll know for sure on Tuesday. Get home at 1ish, have my own school work to work on. I mean I HAVE TO FINISH THIS STUPID COURSE. I figured from 1ish until 4:30ish I'll work on my school stuff. I wont be able to work on it everyday until that time though. John will be running cross country and all meets are at 4 pm so until his CC is over then I won't be working on my stuff until 4:30 but more like 3:30 or so.

I haven't like exercising in the evenings only because the last few times I have exercised in the past, I've had a hell of a time getting to sleep. I'm thinking though, that evening is going to be about my only choice. I refuse to get up earlier than 6am to exercise! Getting up at 6 am is going to be rough on me for a few weeks. I was getting up last week at 6:15 and by 5pm I was dog tired...its going to take sometime to get used to the earlier wake up call. The kids are going to be tired, grumpy I'm sure so we are going to be on each others nerves I'm sure.

I can't believe summer vacation is over. I'm saddened and I'm happy...mostly sad though. It goes by so stinkin fast, it just never seems to be long enough. I have already looked through the calendar (school calendar) to see when we get a vacation LOL....not until Thanksgiving GEEEZ! He have a few half days in November (conferences) but that is it until November! It should make for some good checks lol

I'm better finish getting ready for my run....yes folks you heard that I started back up yesterday. Its been nearly 4 months---4 months since I've ran...more or less when I was on vacation I think was the last time I ran...on the beach! My legs are soft, my belly is soft...although the ab exercises that I've done lately have helped some, but not like the running was doing....I was really upset with myself yesterday when I got back because of how bad my time was yesterday and how lousy I felt after running 2.4 miles! I was pissed at myself! I better go though so I can get this run under my belt for the day.

    Hi I found you on the leader boards for our town in MI :)

    I just wanted to say I feel your pain about falling out of the healthy habits and trying to squeeze in exercise. I have a similarly busy schedule and find it extremely difficult to motivate myself for exercise after working 9 hours a day, tending to my two year old for a few hours afterwards and then finally getting time to myself around 8pm!

    You aren't alone :)

    Hi! I'm so glad to see you are blogging again. I, too, have fallen off the wagon. We started homeschooling 3 weeks ago, and it has been a difficult transition. Trying to figure out how this school figures into the rest of my work, laundry, doing fun stuff with the kids, cooking, plus teaching. The good news is that we are doing PE 3 mornings/week, so at least I am getting some activity. But I am softer than I used to be too. Squishy. Yuck.

    Anyway, I have a suggestion for you. Since it seems like your schedule would permit this, have you considered planning an afternoon nap? You said that you are dog tired by 5 what if you napped for 30 minuites to one hour after lunch. You would wake up more alert and able to study. I can't concentrate when I am tired, so trying to absorb school work would be nearly impossible during the hours of 2-4 (the normal "sleepy time" for most folks). It's just a suggestion. That might even allow you to exercise in the evenings or get up earlier in the morning to exercise, since you wouldn't actually be missing the sleep, just breaking it up.

    Take care! :)
