Finally a blog post

It's hard to find enough time to exercise, work everyday and go to all the associated meetings and trainings, and show up for all the expected family and social events. Therefore, it's been a while since I posted a blog.
September was a great month in several ways. School started and my second grade class is full of wonderful students. We have a couple fantastic new staff members. I've managed to continue tracking nutrition every day, although sometimes I don't have time to enter foods properly and have to select substitutions, so calories are probably not accurate for everything. I've been able to use my Stand Up Paddle board several times each week and I feel stronger! I even lost a couple pounds. Hard to say exactly how much because the scale likes to bounce up and down by a pound or two, but the over all trend looks to be down between 2 and 3 pounds. Woo Hoo! for September.
And now we enter October. I always get together with some friends on the first Friday of October, so last night we started out, as usual at our favorite nail salon for a little pampering. I've got the cutest little spider webs on my big toes. Then, we went downtown for the fall Arts Walk. Lots of businesses stay open late and showcase the art of various professional artists and students. People are everywhere. A few streets are blocked where bands play, faces are painted, and jugglers abound. It was great fun to spend time with friends. We stayed up way too late. Today was a beautiful day; sunny and warm. Too bad I was too tired to take full advantage of it, so no exercise today. I'll have good memories of a night out with friends, but I'll also remember we had most of our fun before it got too late, and I'll be in before carriages start turning into pumpkins the next time we go out on the town.
