I’m back at the gym after three months. I’ve been a handful of times since school let out – definitely not something to write home about. Because I haven’t been, it’s starting to show in my tight pants. The days of eating whatever whenever and drinking wine are O.V.E.R. Back to clean eating, no carbs, no junk food, and no wine except for on weekends. I’m feeling sluggish and bloated. It’s water all day long to flush out the toxins.
My first class back was Body Combat. What a great workout! Next class was Body Pump. Usually after this class, I walk funny for a few days because I’m so sore. Squats with weights are horrible. I hate them. With a passion. But, they do a body good.
And while I’m back at the gym, the boys are back at school. Can I get an AMEN?!?! The last couple weeks of summer were exhausting.
Gavin started kindergarten and Josh started 2nd grade. Gavin is also going to the community center three days a week and attending a program called Kindergarten Kids. It’s basically another kindergarten class, which gives him three full days of school. With him being on the younger side, I think he’ll benefit from this class. His buddy, Liam, is in the class with him. They are in kindergarten together, so he’s happy to get to spend some time with him. On the second day of school, he asked why he had to go to two schools. I couldn’t help but laugh. He was confused and thought one school was preschool and the other was kindergarten.
PTO duties are in full swing! I feel like I’m back at work with all the emails, to do’s and follow ups I have to do. Only downside is there’s no paycheck except for the kid’s smiles when they see me at school. I guess that’s enough :)
And because I don’t have enough on my plate, I also took on a part time job at Sunset Hills Winery. I’m ready to get back to work and make some spending money (a.k.a. money to pay off bills). I love wine – it’s no secret – so working at a winery is the obvious choice right?! I’ll be giving tastings and doing other things around the winery. I’m working weekends, mostly Sunday's when we don't usually have anything planned. My first day is Sept. 21st. I'm a little nervous, but anxious and excited. Who knows...maybe something bigger and better will come out of it.
I’m so thankful that school started again. I love being on a routine!
