The last few days I’ve spent discussing the summer being over and what a great one I had with my boys and friends. It truly was a summer to remember. Before I get into my thinking and reflection moments for my weight, exercise, and all that jazz I want to take a minute to highlight my favorite moments. I could fill this page up with pics but you check my Facebook and Instagram for those. 🙂
As I was looking at pictures to include I saw many date nights, a couple of Vegas trips with my love, Logan’s first time playing the sax, his first summer camp walking in with a smile, Ruby Tuesday family date nights and more. We’ve had a truly wonderful summer which brings me to my post topic.
Summer is ending and it’s time to get on regular schedules, serious food prep, and better nutrition. Not just ME but the whole family. We spend our year in phases with summer being relaxing. We eat out more, travel, eat meals when we feel like it and basically just go with the flow. Like most of you the school year doesn’t afford such luxury. We need the structure because it works for us and bring peace of mind versus stress to our lives. The opposite is true in the summer.
For me personally, I now spend my year in phases. I have a leaner phase which is when we are not traveling. I typically lift more, run less, eat less, and party less. Not because I get cray-cray but because it fits my lifestyle. I also know in the summer I want to live more so I’m OK with drinking and some weight gain. In the spring I enjoy races (if I didn’t burn myself out doing Dopey’s and Goofy’s LOL).
