I had such high hopes for this month, and it has only just started. On the plus side that means I can just hop back onto track quickly instead of mourning the days gone by.
I have found exercise and eating healthier harder these last two weeks. My brother and his family were evicted from their apartment and we allowed them to come live with us while they get back on their feet, but that brings the grand total of people in the house up to 8, 4 adults and 4 children. The two oldest nephews are able to entertain themselves and don't require much supervision, however the 4 year old and three year old are into everything and I can't say I approve of my brothers parenting methods. Tensions are running high and I've never cooked for 8 people before. I've never really eaten much before. I never go back for second helpings, so my first night of cooking I was amazed when it all was gone. I thought I had made enough for two nights but there were no left overs to be found. It boggles my mind that people eat that much.
But I am not giving up. This is definitely taking some getting used too, but I will manage to fit some exercise in somewhere. So far the best bet seems to be late at night, after all the young'ns are asleep. This is my month and I will make myself a priority, I can do this! Somehow...
