Summer time and I am not ready

Sunday, May 06, 2012

It is not the fact I am not in bikini perfection that bothers me because a bikini on me would not be a good idea. The problem I am having is I have a schedule since my son started school. He goes to school and I go for a jog, some pilates, grab something to eat and then I start working on a few things while cleaning. Well anyone with children knows that as soon as Summer break starts, you need to figure out a new schedule. He is exactly like me. When I was a kid I wanted to sit around and watch TV and do anything but exercise. And I could get away with it too and so can he! He has a high metabolism and can eat all day. I wish I had that back. So when I want to go on a jog he would rather sit about. We fight about going on walks and doing anything. So now I am trying to figure out other physical activities like going to the park and I will think of other things for us to do that does not cost money. I can still get in some pilates and Yoga but as far as going outside and exercising I am going to need to figure that one out. I have ADD and when my schedule is messed up it tends to throw me off track and I don't know what to do and with children they do everything in their power to put you on their schedule instead of the other way around. So it is usually a lot of throwing my rank over him around which causes arguments and then waiting for him because he is dragging his feet so then half the day is gone. Then I find that I have turned into She-Hulk and that is never pretty. That means I have to let him sleep in, get some pilates in, wake him up and make him breakfast, and then my mind draws a blank. I refuse to let this summer become a sit on my butt time like last year. I just have to figure out what fun things to do with my son. Swimming at the lake is out of the question due to some biological issues in the water. But we are doing some awesome progress with his physical therapy for his Achilles Tendinitis. He has a better workout than I do and we have been doing it together. But I will get this and it won't take my whole summer to do it.
