In 2 more weeks my kids are going back to school. This time around, things will be different. It will be the first year that I will have almost the entire day to myself. This will be the first year that BOTH kids go to school for an entire day. My problem, what to do.
I’ve pretty much been able to manage my time with only half a day all to myself. What with at least one kid being done with school before lunch. But since now they both get out of school in the afternoon, that leaves me with so much time on my hands.
First thing, I enrolled at the gym again. I signed up for personal training sessions to better tune my workouts. I plan to do this right after I drop them off. I’m still deliberating on whether I should do yoga again…that can come later.
Then I also plan to take some courses. I still can’t think of what to take at the moment but that definitely is in the works. I also am thinking of taking some courses offered at an online university which will mean I can do this in the comforts of my home.
Eventually I also want to start another business. When the kids are able to really fend for themselves then that would be the right time. Besides, that’s what the hubby and I agreed on. At the moment, the kids still take center stage and until then they still have my undivided attention…except when I’m on my “me-time”.
After procrastinating for almost 2 years, I think I’ve finally found the motivation to really get back on the fitness bandwagon.
I just signed up for a 4 session running clinic!! Even I couldn’t believe it. For someone who rarely laces up her sneakers, taking a running class is definitely one for the books. I don’t even like running…even when I’m required to run! Walking, yes..but running…nope.
But well, I’ve sealed the deal so there’s no backing out now. In fact, since I was all gungho about it, I also went ahead and inquired at my hubby’s gym. Next thing you know, I might be gulping down creatine supplements for that mean and ripped look.
Wish me luck.
A marathon? Yep, a marathon!
I know, I know…it is almost impossible to believe that someone like me who would most likely pack several patio chairs and watch the marathoners do their thing is actually thinking of joining.
Why? Well, firstly, its for an absolutely good cause. Second, I really need the exercise. Third, many of my Mommy blogger friends are going. And last and most importantly, my kids are invited too and that makes the event’s fun level go up a gazillion notches higher.
So for all you Mommies, Daddies and Kiddies out there….LEZGO!!
More details HERE.
Tomorrow I turn a happy 42. And yes, I am really happy. Unlike some people who dread getting older, I welcome it wholeheartedly. And it doesn’t have anything to do with the fact that I…ahem….do not look my age. Indulge me, ok.
Anyway, since I’m on the subject, I might as well get some sensible thoughts in…at least for now.
So what do I hope to achieve this year. Well, probably the same as the year that passed. I honestly believe that I haven’t done so bad. My work output is pretty much satisfactory, my kids are happy and healthy, and my hubby hasn’t lost any more hair. So I did pretty good.
Personally though, I am still hoping to get my fitness routine up and running…pun completely intended. Other than reading diet pill reviews, I would really like to get back on the fitness bandwagon and maybe shave a couple of pounds in the process. And then that would my 43rd year even better. Right?
So again, happy 42nd to me!
I have to admit that I have gained some weight in the last couple of months. Especially so that my physical activity has been little to almost zilch. I’m not blaming anybody but myself. Sure I’ve got a truckload of work and sure I’ve got a lot of non-work things that need extra attention. But not making time to be healthy is entirely my fault.
So the result is a pudgier me. And since I’m prone to a thicker mid-section, yes, people have asked me if I’m on the family way. Not once, not twice, but several times over. At one point I even went as far as checking out those China made diet pills in complete desperation because I was looking for a quick fix to my problem. Not to worry, though, I didn’t take any and I would rather consult my doctor regarding diet pills that work and are safe as well.
What now? Well, I am definitely working on this. When? Soon. And thats a promise I am really keeping.
