July was a fun and busy month.
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... Read more
Family is here.... fun but hard to diet.
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... Read more
Wii~~~Nice to see a weight loss.
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 ... Read more
I think I am into it
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... Read more
28 Day Bootcamp Challenge
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... Read more

I did get outside and garden
It was nice to see some sunshine today. The rain was welcome but after several days I just felt tired. Getting out today and doing gardening (pulling up those weeds that love that rain too) I felt so much better.
My dog was happy about that t... Read more
Just not up to it today
My eating is fine. I have just been tired. I got lots of housework done today, but just not into committing to heavy exercise today. Its probably as much me, but the weather has been cool , rainy and gloomy. Its rubbed off on me, not a good excu... Read more
This week will be better than last
Tomorrow is our 35th Aniversary. Wow! We are planning an overnight trip to look for a dining room set for our kitchen. I want to find something hand crafted without totally recking the budget. Everything I see here is too expensive for Asia made... Read more
I hope it counts
I don't like missing days of walking, but this week has not been good for that. Our computer was down most of the week. I missed SP, and I think that was part of not having to be accountable. This time of year there is alot to do outside as well... Read more
Lost my streak.
Being on sparkpeople has helped me keep in the mindset of what I eat, doing my exercises, and just communication in general. I had a bad weekend because of a get together. I was going to regroup, and get back at it. Then our computers went down ... Read more

Getting in the Exercise
I had housework to do in the morning. I wanted to get outside and do yardwork, and prepare the area where we are planting a small garden. I did get out in the afternoon and worked for over 4 hrs.
I had every intention of gettting my treadmill... Read more
Exercise~~You may surprise yourself
I almost didn't get in my daily treadmill workout. It was after 9:30, but I told myself at least do 10 minutes. At 10 minutes I thought, oh do a little more. I just kept going, and before I knew it I was at 36 minutes.
Getting started is my h... Read more
Our night out
We rarely go anywhere, and last night we went to a Blues Concert with friends. Joe Bonamassa was the band. This guy is an amazing guitar player, and at a young 33 has really mastered it. He must have played 14 guitars during the show.
We at... Read more
