All of July my daughter and family were here visiting. My son's family (who live nearby) were here a lot also. With 6 adults and 7 grand all 6 and under was fun but also chaotic. I was hoping to spend more individual time with the grandkids that live far away.
I wish my daughter and I could have spent more time together as well. It is just when everyone is here, it is hard to visit, because I was always busy cooking and keeping up with the household chores. The time went by quick. The in~laws live here too, so time is shared. My husband got to be PoPs and played more with them. I needed a little more of that time with them.
Everyone left yesterday morning. I was not feeling well, but I think I was also just exhausted. I slept most of the day, and did not have trouble sleeping through the night.
I miss them already. I am both enjoying and missing the chaos. Does that make sense?

It has been great having the grandkids here, but I have had no time to be on SparkPeople. I have not even checked my email for days. My diet and exercise routines have been bad. I can not diet when the family is here. I have and am having a good time with them, but I think I have gained weight. I am afraid to look at the scale.
Our refrigerator broke down too. So we have to run to the store alot. It keeps things cold in the freezer, and cool in the fridge side. Hopefully the parts to fix it will be in tomorrow and fixed on Monday.
The grandkids are 6,6,4,3,2,18month, and 14 months. 2 girls and 5 boys. There are 4 staying right now. When all seven are here,...... well all you grandparents and parents know what I mean. We have had fun, but I am tired.
Until the end of the month, I will mainly just be checking in and spinning the wheel. Then its back to being serious on my journey again.

We have had a wii fit for awhile. Our tv stopped working, so we had to put it away. I liked using it, but was not as dedicated as I should have been.
We just bought a new tv, a nice flat screen 47 in. We hooked up the wii and I got on to see what I weighed. It was in Jan. when I used it. I started doing SP in March, but not serious till the end of April. Anyway I had lost 13lbs since the last time I had used the wii. It was finally nice to see.You made your goal!
It still insults me and tells me I am obese, and wants to chat alot. I wil someday get some admiration from him/her. I put in a new goal and this time I will make it sooner than 5months.
I like using it to mix up the cardio a bit. I plan on using the treadmill every other day now. I like the wii, because it is a little more fun, and I am still getting in some moves. I enjoy the yoga and the strength exercises too. I also like doing the wii sports. We have the fitness coach too. I didn't do that much before, and didn't like it too much, hmmmmmm maybe because it was exercise.
Maybe now because I am really into losing weight and being fit, I will try that tomorrow.

I feel pretty good about how I am doing. I am doing the 28day bootcamp challenge and it is keeping me into getting in the exercise, strength, and cardio.
I am almost looking forward to it everyday, I at least know I am going to do it, so it is becoming habit. It is coming easier everyday.
I just need someone to give me that kick a little earlier. My goal is to get my exercise in within the first half-hour of my day.
I am anxious to see how the end of the bootcamp plays out. I really think I am going to see some changes!!! I know I am.

I am glad a joined this. It keeps me accountable. I think it will help to get me into looking foward to my workouts and cardio. I am good when I get started, I just need a little push and then I am off.
The timing works out well because at the end of the Challenge, my daughter and family will be here for a couple weeks from Colorado. I hope to have taken off some inches and pounds. There will be more cooking going on. I do not want a gain in weight ( daughter is great cook, and loves making deserts) while they are here. I am sure with 4 little ones 6 and under here it may throw me off a little. The positive is I will be able to have a little more energy to keep up with them better.
