Family is here.... fun but hard to diet.

Thursday, July 08, 2010

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.

    Visits from family can definitely crimp your SP style. My sister was in town for 3 weeks, so in addition to not having a lot of time as I'd like for sparking, there were also a lot of dining out and family dinners. UGH! But now that she's flown back home, I'm back to sparking and my exercise and nutritional routines. So good to be back in the groove again, and you'll be there too. For now, do the best you can, but more importantly, enjoy those precious grandchildren.

    Honey, congratulations on doing as well as you're doing!!!!! Your grandchildren are all so little! I know that's not easy and we've never had that many with us!

    Children grow up sooooooo fast. You're diet will wait. It won't run away. That's what my Gramma would've said. love, Darlene
    PS Keep up the good work!

    I was lucky we went out of town to visit family and I was able to use my aunts computer to log in one night and one night I logged in on my cell phone even though I wasn't able to do anything but sign in and track my water and food. But I was determined not to let the trip interfere with what I needed to do. I made sure to pack my own snacks so that when they were eating things I am staying away from I had fruit, crackers and nuts to choose from.
