Adjusting my plan

Right now I'm working on readjusting my workout routine to incorporate the kids who homeschool.  I plan to still do my fit2b workouts in the mornings, but I need regular walks and so do the kids, so we are making changes.  We have a new walking path in town that's even got the mileage marked on it so we are going to use that for our morning run/walk.  I found out Francisco loves to run - perfect!

I've been much better about avoiding junk food provided I keep it out of the house.  And I've been monitoring my portion sizes.  I found out that I lost 8 lbs over a four month time span with minimal effort.  I'm happy with that.  The most important thing is to be strong and fit, honestly.

I was able to replenish my green smoothie supplies at Costco a couple weeks ago.  That always makes me feel like I'm eating better.  I try to have several a week.

I spent the first several weeks with Francisco just getting used to him being around and having another member of the family.  We've been talking a lot and getting to know each other.  It's taken up a lot of my emotional energy.  But it's been good.

I decided that instead of a summer reading challenge with the kids this year, we will do a 5k challenge and spend our summer getting in better shape as a family.  I'm pretty excited about it!  I want to figure out something really fun and cool like find a color run to finish off with that we could do together.  I think that would be a fun motivator!
