Already over?!?!

It seems like just yesterday summer was beginning and now I only have 4 weeks left of my little vaca before school officially begins again.  I'm excited for the upcoming year since I will be at a new school, but nervous because I don't know anyone.  I hope there  are other teachers my age that I can easily talk to and maybe make some new friends.  It will be a new beginning.  
One of the things I wanted to accomplish this summer was getting into really good shape....and well obviously that shape has turned out to be of a more round shape. LOL  I have gained 10 lbs this summer!  Not good when I got rid of most of my work clothes at the end of the year because they were too big.  Like I said it will be a new start and I want to begin with new clothes.
Therefore, I have 4 weeks to get this 10 lbs off and maybe a few more so that I can buy some new clothes that aren't in the same size I got rid of.
I have been watching my calories and working out for the past week and have only lost 1 pound...ugh!!! It really sucks, but I don't really care about the scale as much as wanting to buy smaller clothes so I'm not going to let the scale number get me down.  I'm going to continue to work out everyday and keep focusing on toning and getting rid of the flab.
Any ideas on where to get some cute, professional, young, cheap, and good quality work clothes?  I've been looking online and can't find too much.  I am not going shopping until the beginning of August when the kids will be in school. That is not a trip I want to take with would be more frustrating than productive.
I have pinned some outfits on pinterest and it seems like I just need some staple articles of clothing and then mix and match them to make lots of different outfits.  I would love some suggestions of places to go if you have any!

Running with kids sucks!

Yesterday I decided to be brave and take my kiddos on a little jog.  I needed exercise and out of the house or they were going to drive me nuts. 
I always forget why I don't just put them in the stroller and take off, until I get out there and it all comes back to me.  It is sort of like having a are all excited and ready for the pain to see your beautiful baby, then once it starts you are asking yourself why you chose to do it again.  Then you take one look at their precious face and you forget all over again. 
That would describe my love hate relationship with putting the 60+lbs of kid in the stroller and running.  First, it is so much harder to run pushing them. Second, I have K asking me a bazillion questions and if I don't answer she just gets louder and louder.  Third, L only lasts about 20 minutes and then he screams and yells forever.
With all of that, I get totally frustrated during my run, but for some reason I still feel pretty good after so I'm sure I will forget how bad it was and do it all over again.  
Although, it may be a while because I was frustrated and thinking what the hell when BAM I rolled my foot all weird.  It isn't my ankle, it is like my inner foot.  I have done it before and couldn't run for a couple of weeks and I'm pretty sure it is going to be the same this time because for 2 days I have barely been able to walk. 
This sucks!
