Hey there! I don’t have a specific post or recipe to share, but I thought I’d play a little catch-up on the ol’ blog. Things have calmed down a bit around here—I had a few days last week and this week that were totally open, so I was able to get work done for classes and even hit the gym a few times. I think I just get used to having SUCH an open schedule in the summer that when it’s time to return to classes and my time is more limited, there’s a bit of an adjustment period.
Two things have been helping me get back into regular workouts—1) I’m just making them a priority. It’s really easy to sleep in now that Lila is waking up a little later (like, 7 instead of 6), but I’ve come to realize that especially on the days I teach, those early morning hours are the only time I’m going to go to the gym. Lila is in school all morning until 1:00, so I hate to drag her to the childcare at our Y after I haven’t seen her in the morning. Plus, on the days that I teach, I shower in the morning before my 10 and 11 o’clock classes, and I don’t want to workout, get all gross, and have to shower AGAIN before my evening class.
Eh, it’s all very complicated. What it boils down to is that I’ve been waking up at 6:15, going to the gym in our neighborhood (instead of driving all the way to the Y), and getting my workout done first thing. And I kind of love it. It’s *really* nice to have a workout over and done with before breakfast. And our neighborhood gym is actually surprisingly nice—I’m kind of mad at myself for just now starting to use it! The fact that is is literally 2 minutes down the street from us, as opposed to 15 minutes away like the Y, is so convenient.
So anyway—that’s what’s going on on the workout front.
Let’s see…what else. Did I tell you that Lila is taking ballet classes?
I mean…it’s basically the cutest thing ever. The only way it could get cuter is if they released a bunch of puppies into the studio, halfway through the class. She loves the classes, too—maybe we have a prima ballerina on our hands?
We’ve had some really nice sunny weather, although it still needs to drop about five degrees for it to actually feel like fall. We’re getting there though. We went on a hike this past weekend:
….and I officially wanted a sweatshirt to wear over my tank top.
We tried to get a picture of all “the kids” at the top of the mountain:
…but it was pretty much a fail. At least we got a picture of the humans:
Other than that…not much going on here. Tonight is Thursday, which means a trip to the farmers’ market. Ready for the weekend, for sure! Hope your week has been a great one!
