Life since DH retired!

Monday, August 04, 2014

The thing about my husband being retired is that every day is the weekend! Love it! Wish he could have done it sooner!

We are terrifically busy and I rarely find time to Spark! We went on a great vacation and visited all our children and saw all the grand kids but one who was not available when we were in his area. With twelve kids and 36 grand kids this was a major project! Also saw most of the great grandkids and there are ten of those.

Now that we are back home, we are having the visits from family. We have two families visiting now although not all are actually staying in our home-- just four people.

I have not been able to stay on any sort of a good eating plan since retirement started. Hard to follow any plan while traveling and being a guest in someone elses home. Also hard to have guests and not feed them well. When there is food available I find it hard to resist the goodies so have put on three pounds. I am not happy about it, but I will get back to the lower weight and good habits just as soon as the current guests leave. I know what to do it is just very hard to folow through with the program when the normal routein is broken.

Good wishes for successful weight control to all of you. I do try to read blogs when I have time, but so far, haven,t managed to find a good schedule that works for retirement and vacations and guest schedules. Just want to say hi to all my Spark friemds and assure you that I have not fallen off the edge of the earth!

    Glad to hear that you've been enjoying DH's retirement. I know you will get back on track and yes, it is hard to stay on track while traveling and also having guests.
