It’s official, we are back to school. Madilyn has been a kindergartener for a whole month and Charli has completed her first week back in preschool. Things are more than a little nuts, schedules are still shaking out, youth soccer has officially begun, and although I’m told back-to-school means tired kiddos, that has not been the case. The only one who is completely wiped out is me. So much so that my dinner menu has been blank all week, not to worry we’ve still managed to eat; my house is wrecked; and I’m only the second week into my online class and I’m too occupied with housework and elementary homework for Madz to even consider any of my own.
All of this and I’m trying my damn-dest to get back into a healthy routine. I can’t quite pinpoint when my sleeping and eating habits became so compromised but I do know that a change needs to be made, ASAP. My productivity isn’t necessarily a problem, what can I say, I know how to get shit done, but …admittedly, I could be more efficient.The truth is, my sleep isn’t going to get better anytime soon so I need to make the changes that I can to improve my energy.
A few months ago I was urged to buy a Bikram Yoga Groupon and although I despised the first class I came to absolutely love it. The problem is that it is so expensive! So, I started to run a little here and there (a free exercise I will win the battle with and learn to love) and am trying to train myself to build yoga and running into a long-term lifestyle. It feels like a lot of change for a soccer-mom in training but I suppose there is no better time than the present.
