Today was the first day of preschool. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been waiting for this day for a few weeks now. It’s the beginning of me having a few mornings to myself again. This summer was so great, but also exhausting, and I’m so ready to get back into my routine. I spent all of Labor Day weekend getting my life organized. I cleaned out closets, got my car detailed (the gunk that lives underneath and in between carseats is truly fucking disgusting), organized my house, etc. It may be cheesy, but I feel like the new school year is such a great way to hit the reset button. And on top of everything, I had my Challenge Group start yesterday, and they were all ready for a new routine/clean slate/change too, and they’ve been totally inspiring me. I’m working with a group of 54 people in this 3 week Challenge, so their energy and excitement is totally contagious, and it’s been so much fun!
Everything went really well at drop off today, even though I was slightly offended that my baby didn’t seem to give a shit that I dropped her off with a roomful of strangers. Ha. She was so excited and didn’t even look back. I’m not sure how I feel about that, but I’ll take it.
After drop off, I met a group of preschool mamas out for brunch (with mimosas) to celebrate the first day. A year ago, I would NEVER have done that. It would have meant that I would miss my only opportunity to work out, and I would have rushed to the gym to get to my 9:15 class and reserve my spot. I definitely would have declined the invitation for brunch and mimosas, how sad is that? It feels so liberating to not be a slave to the gym. Working out is such an important part of my mental sanity, but so is being able to go out with some friends every once in awhile, and I’ve finally figured out how to have both. These at home workouts that I’ve been doing can be done before the girls wake up, while they are at school, during their rest time, outside while they are playing, when they go to sleep, etc. I can go to the gym for a class when/if I want to and when/if it works in my schedule that day. I don’t have to stress about this tiny window of time where I have to fit everything in. Anyway, my point is that it was so nice to use my only kid free time socializing with other moms as opposed to spending the entire time in the walls of the gym. I’m so glad I’ve found a more efficient way to get it all in…workout time, friend time, kid time.
I’m registering people my next Challenge Group starting today. I’ve honestly never seen these kind of results in this amount of time. It’s unbelievable. Flexible nutrition program (that includes wine, cheese, chocolate and carbs), 30 minute daily workouts, access to private accountability group and me as a coach!
