Welp, it looks like summer is officially over. Womp womp.
Good thing I had some fun celebrating the last few days of it over the long weekend! Here’s what was happenin’…
I know that everyone has different ideas of when summer is “officially” over but I’ve always considered the first day back to school to be that day. Today, as soon as I signed on to Facebook (or turned on the local news) all the talk was about everyone heading back to school (I have quite a few teacher friends!). A couple of years ago, that also would have been me, and I would have used today as somewhat of a “fresh start” for a new year.
Even though I’m not walking through the doors of a school today, I’m still looking at today as a new fresh start. The past few months have been pretty draining at times, both mentally and emotionally. Now that’s not to say that it’s been all bad – I mean, I really had quite an incredible summer…
I won the gold (by default, but whatev) in Summer Yard Olympics, had a blast at HLS and spoke again on a panel, got to be in the weddings of two of my best friends, had a great time with our softball team, started my online training business, got to be on TV, and had endless amounts of fun with friends and family.
So now, with this new fresh start of mine, it’s time to remember to keep living in the moment and remember that everything happens for a reason!
To kick start my day, I started it off on the right foot (well actually, both feet) with a workout.
I tried out a fun new treadmill workout that I basically made up on the fly, and it made the time go by wicked fast. I’ll have to share with you guys soon…as soon as I actually type it up.
Post-workout and shower, it was breakfast tiiiime.
A delicious mug of coffee
And a whole wheat bagel thin, toasted and topped with a spread of pumpkin + peanut butter, banana slices, and chia seeds.
My gosh, I have missed that pumpkin. I’m so, so glad to have it back. It just makes my heart happy.
I’m outta here in a few minutes to head to a doc appointment, take care of a few errands, and possibly make a quick pit stop by Starbucks to see if we have pumpkin lattes at our locations yet.
Because I’m not obsessed or anything…
Questions for the Morning:
Do you have certain times of the year that you like to make your own “fresh starts?”
Anyone else starting with me today??
