With the beginning of summer "break" for the kids, I have to remember it's no "break" for me.
The kids will change my schedule completely. No more leisurely meals with the toddlers. It'll be chaos as the school age day care kids will announce that today they don't like carrots or catsup. Our walks will turn into backyard activities and I'll have to get my walking in during the evenings. No more quiet rest times. The house will be on the go constantly.
My summer "break" will begin with the kids testing me about the rules. I'll have to re-explain why I don't allow the chairs on the tables or scissors in to toy area. It's hard to not just turn on the TV but the kids get used to it.
My summer "BREAK" has to include the same good choices I've been making. I have to continue with the cardio, It might be a summer "break" for the kids but it's just a normal day for me.
