If I’m not mistaken, I just published a post saying “Hai” to August. Time is going by rather swiftly and I’m not complaining one bit. Things are pretty good this way. I’ve made a month at my job, my kids have completely adjusted to school, and school for me is going rather well. It’s still proving to be a challenge to help my son be more independent and self-sufficient, but we’re working on that. We’re also still trying to smooth out the kinks that we have with getting ready in the morning. So, I’ve decided to use this extended weekend to make some adjustments to our routine and our schedules. They probably won’t like going to bed earlier
and I definitely won’t like getting up earlier but I am so tired of waking up in the morning fussing because they don’t want to get out of bed. Or because once they’ve gotten out of bed, they spend a little extra time “using the bathroom” or “dressing themselves” because they’ve decided to try to get some extra Zzz’s in.
This month will also be the month that I join a gym. It almost pained me to to type that. My best friend is going all in and I admire her persistence as well as her stories about her near death experiences at the gym. LOL! My job offers a MAJOR discount to a gym that also includes child care while I work out.
I’m not trying to lose weight. Let’s get that straight. I am perfectly fine with the 156 lbs that I lug around all day, and wouldn’t feel bad if that number increased to be honest. But, what I do know is that it definitely won’t hurt to do a little toning that my body needs. I figured a few cycling classes and ABsolution wouldn’t hurt.
And make sure I get that $150 health credit from my job. HELLO SOMEBODY!
Also, this month I’ll be limiting, if not eliminating my time spent on social networks. I’m starting my first project at work post-training and there are a lot of things that I have to learn. I don’t need anything to divert my attention away from where it needs to be. I’m trying to be a project manager like yesterday.
I went on a social networking hiatus back in June and it proved to really work and enhance the effort that I put into my work. Have I deleted the apps or logged out yet? Not yet, but it will be done today. While I won’t be disconnecting from all of the networks, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram will definitely receive little to none of my time. I do plan to stick around on Google+, LinkedIn, and in Blog Land. There seems to be less drama and foolishness on these networks.
And last, this month I also plan to start dating.
Or go shopping.
Shopping sounds better.
