Had to send out a little giggle

Friday, July 27, 2012

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! For all of you who know me you know that since the wildfires here through June and July I've really slowed down on my fitness. Part of it is because I run a lot outside and it was extremely difficult at the time. I've slowly (I mean very slowly) tried to get back on track. I tell my kids all of the time that they need to clean up the family room so I can try to do my boot camp (which I use through my Xbox, since it reads DVD's), they always tell me ok! Well my 15 year old always manages to spend the night at her girl friends house which is ok because then she doesn't snip at or argue with my 8 year old. Did you get that one 8! Well any way with me even trying to get back on track I've been filled with anxiety because again, I can't get anything done on my workout DVD's. Hense my problem. My kids during summer break only like to live/sleep in the family room which is ok if they CLEAN it!

I know that when everyone see's this they will be able to relate to it one way or another and I have to say that I can't even believe that I'm sharing it!

Take a look, and you'll see why I just sit back and is all I can say is WTH!!

I just cleaned 4 hours ago, can you tell?

I know after hearing my frustration that is all you'll be able to do is giggle and that's ok, that's what I wanted to do!

I know that when they get back to school in a month or so that things will settle back down but really I've got to get on track now!

Really everyone, just enjoy and have a wonder weekend!

Together emoticon and just remember to emoticon under all odds!

    Just think of all the calories you use just trying to keep the room in order. Silver lining in every cloud........

    Enjoy them while they are there to make noticeable piles!

    Can you instead of cleaning, just move stuff out of the way or into a pile so that you can still have room to do your own workouts? That would drive me nuts!! I have a lot of renovation stuff around and sometimes I just clear a space big enough to get my workout done - even though it's not officially "clean".

    It does look like your work is cut out, and yes, we all have similar situations. Its tough! But, hang in there, things will get better as you say - maybe you could change your plans a little and go for a fast walk in an area that isn't too badly affected? (we don't have wildfires in Scotland, so please forgive me if that is an inappropriate suggestion).
    Or get the kids to join in with the fun parts of the DVD and that way they might see why they need to clear up?

    Just a thought.

    Anyhoo, keep going - together we can do it!
