It's Windy

I gotta say that's it's tough getting back into a school day routine. It's easy enough to wake up and get going, in fact the last few weeks, I've been waking up about 4:30am ready for the day. I have gotten up a few times and gone for a run.

The kids already had off last Friday from school. One week in and off for a longer weekend. We spent the day "parking" it. The kids love playing outside and the fresh air always wears them out more, so we went to Miller Park and played on the huge playground in the parking lot. The wind is awful round these parts. We had to search the deep trenches of the closets to find pants and sweatshirts as we've been wearing shorts and t-shirts all summer. We made it to the zoo this weekend and wore off a bit more energy there.

Today, it was back to school and the kids are finally back to uniforms. I understand that the school likes to let the kids wear their "new" clothes to start the year, but uniforms sure are convenient.

I made it to a WW meeting with the 2 yr old last Wednesday and he did awesome. It's a meeting I had never gone too...lots of retirees and a few others tossed in. We'll go again tomorrow as I love the leader. I have to say this has been a tough week. I put the scale away once again. I find myself always stepping on the blasted thing and this week and relying on my hunger and only weighing tomorrow at the meeting. It will be the first time ever that I'll be surprised at a weigh-in because I really don't know what to expect. I have tracked 4 out of 7 days, and haven't done horrible the other 3 days, I just hate worrying about it on the weekends and Friday just turned into a weekend day round here ;)

Hoping to check in a little more often as this naptime is an awesome two hours of the day. Exercise, lunch and a bit of computer time.

The kids here just went back to school today! Sometimes it's hard to get back into routine. Have a great meeting.

I love the routine of back-to-school but it's been difficult to haul myself out of bed - fighting a cold, I think, and it's been darker in the am plus cold here! Brrr. Those covers are soooooooooooooo warm! But I've done my 5:30 mornings still, most days.
Glad you're liking your WW's leader. It can make or break your meeting I find.
