Is it really Friday? Somehow my weeks are getting away from me. It’s been a busy week here on the islands and our little fam has had it’s ups and downs.
Parenting a kindergarten boy has proved much like herding 1,000 wild cats…on crack.
He’s so social and articulate and has so.much.energy he can hardly contain himself. He’s had a bit of a transition adjusting to his new “responsibilities” and “expectations”. The disclaimer is that I guess my parenting is not conventional but he’s had to deal with me immediately for not putting forth his best effort to obey his teacher. Yikes. But I tell you what, after two days of not-so-fun afternoons, he came home with a glowing note from his teacher. Tiger mom-1, Hyde child-0.
Anyway I’ve been doing that eating thing like a boss.
adding some variety to our weekly meals has been fun. I’ve tried to add more vegetables at boo boo’s request and I think it’s worked out great.
I imagine it’s helped my running too. That there is the hill I conquered the other day after work.
I’m working at the running store this weekend so I’ll be running there and I’m trying to convince my co-workers to run with me. Wish me luck!
Well, this week felt like a wash. Getting used to a new schedule with work and school for the kid had jacked up my runnin something fierce.
I got in one early morning run which was of course awful.
it was pretty for sure but the 6 am wakeup was so not my style. I know some of you are morning people and love getting up early to do crap…whatever.
I was together enough to pack my lunch everyday and guess what? It was the same…everyday.
I had some string cheese and yogurt too but you get the point.
On Friday I finally snuck in an afternoon run.
It was a 3.5 miles that was surprisingly cooler than expected. Next week should be Easier. I’m planning at least one morning run again#Lame. And 3 afternoon runs#itburnstheskin.
As for my weekend, I spent Saturday doing yard work, staining a table, doing laundry and dishes. Jealous?
I am hoping to get a nice 5 tomorrow so we will see how that goes. Then I will drink while boo boo takes care of some packing and keeps an eye on the kid. Oh how the tables will turn.
