This post is going to be different than other because like the title suggest this week I was in transition.  My son graduated from Kindergarten and since he was going to be going away for the summer to spend time with this grandparents on the east coast I let him stayed home instead of going to daycare.  This of course changed my ability to get in  all the miles that I had gotten in last week because he wants no parts of walking up to 10 miles a day.

I fell short on my goals quite a bit this week but I still got in some good steps and some quality time with my son during a number of activities and outings around town.  We everywhere from the zoo to the amusement park.  I would normally post my fitbit dashboard screen but since I don’t think anyone wants to see like 7 screenshots I have included my end of week total here to compare to last weeks totals.  To see how I stacked up while in transition this week.

As you can see I didn’t do nearly this well this week but now that my son is gone for the summer I will be stepping up my  training to make up for the disappointment in steps of this week.  I of course don’t regret it since my son had a great week before he left.    Check out all the fun we had this week at the OKC Zoo, Science Museum and Frontier City.

 

A week in transition

Happy Graduation Daylan….

The next day we headed to the Oklahoma City zoo.  I will probably be heading back to the zoo while Daylan is gone now that I know they have a walking trail with mile markers.

Our last outing of the week was Frontier City, an amusement park here in Oklahoma.

So I convinced Daylan to ride this very scary ride.  Well it went horribly because he spent the entire time crying his eyes out it was a pretty scary ride for a 6 year old but the rest of the day went much better.  I know give me the bad mommy award.  Oh and I rode it with him I took this pic while we were standing in line. 20140529_141519

We were definitely in transition this week but all of them were good transitions.  I am so proud of  Daylan and can’t wait for him to come back home even though he just left. Overall I would say that it was a pretty darn good week for mommy and Daylan bonding time.  Stay tuned to next week when things get real!!!

    Sometimes we need to change our exercise routine. Now that my kids are home for the summer we go to the park and walk laps while they play.

    Congrats on your lil’ one graduating from kindergarten. Looks like you had a ton of fun…I love going to different zoos. I don’t know how I’d feel about seeing a two-headed cow…but very cool exhibits.

    You definitely did a great job. It can be difficult to balance personal fitness goals with family life. Good luck in the weeks to come.

    Don’t be disappointed with your steps – be proud! You may not have met your goal this week, but you still accomplished a lot – including something WAY more important. :)

    The zoo looks like a lot of fun. I bet walking in the zoo will be nice!

    Oh, he’s so cute! And you may have not accomplished what you wanted to accomplish, but you accomplished some time with your son, and that’s good!

    I hate to say it, but you could easily lose the hard work you put in, but you will always have all those awesome memories with your son :) Plus he won’t ever forget it, I’m sure.

    Congrats on him going to 1st grade, how exciting! I’m waiting for my kids to be out of school, not til the 13th though.. That zoo looks way cooler than the one in DC (closes one to us) & I want to take the kids to a water park, they would have a blast, as would I.

    we went to the zoo a few weekends ago, my 7 year old is graduating kindergarten we started her later do to her special needs and she was in a early readiness program then transition to mainstream classroom with a IEP. Your son is adorable, hope he has fun during his trip, you will get time soon enough and miss your little man like crazy the zoo was a sneeky way to get in lot’s of walking lol

    You had a good excuse for not doing as much this week. I would be sitting around crying if my youngest was going to be gone for the summer. Heck I would be crying if my oldest was going off for the summer and he is 17. Glad you spent some extra time with him before he goes.

    Wow your son is gorgeous!! Such a beautiful smile too! I bet you will miss him a lot while he is at his grandparents. Take that time to get back to your goals! Much success!

    I think it is important to prioritize your time and you did the right thing making time to spend with your son. You will pick up the pace with your fitness goals moving forward.

    Loos like you had a great balance of fitness and play – and your son will remember it forever! I was impressed how your calorie burn was still very close to last week, even though the other numbers were lower – nice work!

    You guys are so darn cute! I’m glad you enjoyed so much time together doing these fun things!

    I think you did a great job and probably did more this past week than most people.

    Congratulations to your son and I hope he has a wonderful time visiting his grandparents. You will have even more transition when he comes back and getting ready for school in the fall. Have a wonderful summer.

    Sounds like a wonderful week and worth not getting as many steps in. But you’re still doing great!

  41. Ann Bacciaglia
    June 3, 2014 at 9:43 AM (1 year ago)

    Wow, you are amazing. That is a lot of steps! I am lucky if I walk 5,000 steps a day right now. Making memories with our children is very important and I am sure you and your son will always remember this fun trip.

  42. Jeanette Mays
    June 3, 2014 at 1:27 PM (1 year ago)

    I still think you are doing great! It’s even harder to keep up with things on weeks that are so busy especially if you have children. Keep up the good work!

    You are doing a wonderful job and keeping balanced, spending time with your son. I think you are an amazing role model for moms!

    Sounds like a perfect reason to play hooky. 😉 Cute little man, I bet you’ll miss him during his trip!

    such a cute kid! and, um, yeah, that ride looks terrifying (but I’m not a rollercoaster fan). I would’ve been crying right along with your son. ha!

    Spending quality time with your son is DEFINITELY more important than walking a few miles. I know mommy needs to do for herself, and I’m sure this was rewarding in more ways than one. Looks like you had a blast.
