Swim and Shampoo all in one!

Today was a hot day and so the girls and I decided to stay in... until this evening when it was finally cool enough to eat outside and then take a swim. Now me being the good Nana that I am, I decided why not just shampoo and swim at the same time...that would save on time (not sure their Mom would agree). At first the thought it wasn't a great idea, but it didn't take them long to start liking the idea themselves.
I also was able to start my 12 Days of Christmas projects today...it was 90 degrees out and we had Christmas Music cranked up...it was perfect!
I wasn't able to go out with the girls because Jenny has hand, foot and mouth disease. It is pretty common with young kids, I remember when all my kids had it. She doesn't have it near as bad as Audrey does, but still she is contagious so I couldn't take any chances. 

Since it was the first day of July, I decided to go to back to Weight Watchers today. It has been almost a year ago since I last weighed in. The first 6 months I had a hard time making my meeting because Lee, Lauren and I were all sharing one car with 5 different jobs. I then got back into swimming and busy doubling my hours at work and so I didn't really worry about weighing in since I was holding my weight. Then here came the last 6 months and I have been so sick that it was the least of my worries. But I promised myself before my birthday that I would get back there, see if my weight was off and get back on track. I have been struggling with my thoughts about my self lately so this is something I really need to do. I need to remember this quote more often! 
Staying motivated and dedicated mentally is the most crucial part of weight loss. Reminding myself of my goals every morning, creating rules to reach my goals, being positive about weight loss, loving my body unconditionally whether progress is fast or slow, and celebrating each goal weight has made this very long journey possible.
