I rode my bike yesterday... 15 miles and man am I out of shape... I was very psyched to get out there and more excited to have it behind me. I haven't been making time for myself and I hope that it is just the first of many workouts to come.
We've got another few weeks of atypical schedules, Labor Day, the Jewish Holidays and then SanFrancisco for a long weekend. I am starting to realize that NORMAL could just be "atypical"- the way it is right now- and I've got to learn to deal with it. I can't blame what I put in my mouth on my kids or my job or my crazy dog. I am responsible and it's my choice what I eat, if I exercise and what the scale says. I am thankful for SCHOOL - the pressures of the summer - making sure my kids were entertained and taken care of was a lot for me to deal with, as was the expense. Going into fall, I have more time for me. Now I just have to make the most of it.
