School’s out. Just wanted to let you know.

This is what my kids will be doing this summer…

And probably some of this too….

kid art

My son has recently become engrossed with colour.  I think it is awesome. He just wants to cover pages and pages with colour. So we are heading to the store today to get him some more “pages” — he’s already used up the last notebook.

This is what I will be doing this summer….. filling up my own pages…..

fitness calendar

I’m committing myself to a 10k run in September and I have set  my running plan for the next 3 months.  As you can see my “fitness” calendar is pretty full. Something I don’t talk about much on this blog is SparkPeople.  If you haven’t checked out this website before and are looking for a “spark” to get you back into a fitness routine you could check this one out.  You probably have communities of people all over the net that you check in with every day, weekly, whatever, SP is just another one of those , but it is all about fitness.  Sometimes you need a support network to keep you motivated and this is where I find it. Here you can find someone else working towards the same goals you are, ask the dumb questions or get a pat on the back for going to the gym in the morning.  Beside you may not want to let your cousin’s friend from the east coast know that you missed a run this morning.  They may not care.. but that is just the kind of thing your friends on Spark People understand.

So I’ve hooked up with a team of ladies for a challenge in July = 30 minutes of cardio 6 days per week, 3 ST days per week, drinking water and eating healthy.  I’ve had to add some gym days to my running schedule to get my 6 days of cardio in.  Now if I can get my butt out of bed early enough, I just may make to the gym for the 6am class on at least one of those GYM days.

And yes, I’ll also be working a bunch in July. While my kids are splashing in the pool and making art, I’ll be at the office.

Sometimes I might even blog a bit.  🙂  I really can’t help myself.

Who ever said summer was for relaxing in the sun? It’s going to be a busy month.
