I'm settling into a summer routine. It's a bit different this year, because I don't have any kids for whom I have to be responsible...for the first time in 26 years. YS still lives at home, but he's self-sufficient and pretty much comes & goes as he pleases. He's taking a class & working, so he's not here very much.
Here's my routine (so far):
Eat breakfast (after I let the girls out for their morning potty break)
Take Laika & Pepper for a 30 minute walk in the park. One time around the loop of the park takes right at 30 minutes, which is what my dietitian (12 years ago when I had one & lost 50 pounds) told me to do every day. I'm following that with some arm exercises (because my arms haven't gotten waaaay out of hand...so to speak!)...need to add some ab work to that, too!
Computer time: blog, read blogs, check emails. I'm trying to stay off of FB in the mornings...that's 1 sure way to get sucked in and waste a lot of time!
Mid-morning coffee while having computer time. (To help stave off the urge to eat something!) Did you know that you have to have water in the coffee maker to make coffee? I usually put the water in first, but yesterday put the coffee in, turned it on, and sat down at the table. Then I wondered why I didn't hear it!
Shower. Followed by some book reading or cleaning.
Lunch...and more reading. I like to read while I'm eating lunch. I know you're not supposed to do anything while you're eating, but...oh, well!
Clean. At least 1 room, or part of a room. I don't want to get too carried away! Or, run errands in town.
By this time, it's late afternoon; time to wind down with reading and maybe a nap!
Fix dinner so that it's ready soon after CH gets home from work.
Clean the kitchen, followed by more reading. It's been cool enough lately that I can sit out on the back porch for a little while and read. I know that's going to come to an end very soon, though! When I come in, it's FB time & tv. Followed by bed.
We have a few out of town short trips planned, so hopefully I'll be able to fall back into the routine when we get back.
I'm the kind of person who needs a routine (see the coffee-making!); I just do better and get more accomplished when I have one. Ally (my 15 year old mini-schnauzer) has been "woofing" around 5:00 a.m.; I try to hold her off until 6:00. It's summer break, after all!
Do you have a summer routine? If so, what is it?
