27th August – 2nd September 2017
This year seems to be going really quick and the summer is almost over. I have always loved the summer – a time to relax and wind down.
This summer, eventhough I have relaxed and had time to unwind, I have found it really hard. I just haven’t been able to concentrate on my diet at all. I have managed to do a little exercise but nothing like I was doing before the summer started.
The kids have been off school now for over 8 weeks. It has been long enough for me to pick up some of my old bad habits. I am hoping it is also short enough to get back with my good habits quickly and easily.
I have to admit that over the summer I have put on a little weight. It’s only half a stone but I have struggled to get it off since.
Over the last few weeks I have been preparing to get the kids back to school. It is usually a busy and expensive time of year. There is usually lots of school uniform, shoes (4 pairs per child) and stationery to purchase.
I am very happy to say that next week the kids go back to school, and I go back to normality.
Well I hope I can go back to normality. I have for a few weeks been craving a little bit of routine and normality. I am looking forward to getting back to my normal exercise regime too.
I am hoping with the kids going back to school that I can get back motivated and I don’t sit and waste another 8 weeks of progress.
