It's a new year

Today marks the start of a brand new school year! Last night we had "Back to School Night" and I got to meet most of my new students and parents. I think it's going to be a very interesting year, to say the least. However, I am going to keep an open mind with hopeful thoughts of a what I presume to be a wonderful school year!

On the flip side, trying to get the workouts in while adjusting to the "back to school" schedule over the past week has been a bit of a challenge. Last week started off all fine and dandy, and then before I new it, it's been 5 days since my last workout. Things like mowing the lawn, a wedding out of town, and long days with late nights haven't made the transition any easier. I guess I just need to plan a bit better.

This week better be different .... even though I got nada in yesterday. Today calls for a 2-fer!

And like every other first day of school, I am going to post my usual video from one of my favorite movies - Billy Madison! This song has been going through my head for the past week!

Have a great first day of school! It always takes some time to get into a new routine and the beginning of a school year is the craziest time. I'm sure the workout schedule will sort itself out in the first week or two. Good luck today :)
