Spoke Too Soon + Vacation Exercise
|August 6, 2013||Posted by Presley under Fitness, Life|
I didn’t blog yesterday, because there wasn’t much to tell. I spent all morning testing incoming 4K (child development) students. I loved meeting all of them, but it bums me out because they won’t all be able to get into the class. It’s needs-based, so a few of them actually scored too high. I seriously wish they could all be in my classroom. I say that now, but would 30 4-year-olds really be that much fun? Might be scary. Yesterday afternoon, Ryne and I went to the gym together. It was back & bicep day, so we were in and out really quickly. Maddux was very happy about this. He wasn’t feeling daycare this time around, for some reason.
Today, I spent the morning in my classroom organizing my furniture into centers and checking to see what I’ll need to buy this year. Toys! I needed more toys.
So yeah, not much has been going on. How ’bout we just back track a bit?
On Sunday I was in mourning over the fact that our vacation was over. About twenty minutes after I posted about it, my mom called and asked if I wanted to go to Hilton Head for one night this week. Um. Nahh. I’ll pass. <- What I would never say in a million years.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be heading to HHI with my mom, my dad, and my son. Honestly, the only real reason we’re going is that my grandma is down there with a few of my cousins and she hasn’t ever seen Maddux play at the beach. She is really excited to see him play in the waves. The other reason we’re going is that my mom can never say no to a trip. She’s been all over the daggum world this summer, I swear. Is my jealousy showing?
Anyway, all this vacation talk has me thinking about when, where, and if I’ll work out. I used to be really into working out on vacations, but lately it just hasn’t been as important to me. I’m not sure what’s changed. I’m much more likely to work out on vacation now if I truly want to and if nothing much else is going on. Those are some big “ifs”. I’m not about to miss a moment with my family or friends, ya know?
I know what I will do, though. I will exercise my right to play in the sand. I will exercise my right to eat frozen custard. I will exercise my right to skip a workout with no regrets. Period. End of story.
Along with changing my thoughts on working out on vacation, I’ve also switched gears in other areas of thinking. I have this long, drawn out post that I just haven’t sat down to write yet. To sum it up: my priorities are changing. I don’t know how it will alter this blog, but I do know that these changes are long overdue. Honestly, you probably know I haven’t always totally been myself on here. I’m tired of trying to fit the mold of what I think is expected of me. I don’t just mean with blogging, either. I’m talking about everything. I’m not sure what this means for me yet, but I’m excited to find out. I hope you’ll stick around!
