Tuesday July 16th, 2019...HELLO FROM KAMMY

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Hey everyone. I know I have been MIA for awhile. It's been busy and I am enjoying life/summer!

Graduation for the twins went well! Their party was a ton of fun! I am so damn proud of them both!!!!

After graduation Chase and I headed out on our 2.5 week adventure to Seattle and cruise to Alaska. To have him all to myself for 2.5 weeks was a dream come true for me and we had a blast together! Giving each kid in high school a trip with just Mom was one of the best choices I have ever made parenting. I have done two out of 3 trips now and they are some of my best memories in life and I hope that's the same with the kids too. One more trip to go in a few years....already have started saving for it. They are not cheap trips but well worth every penny in my eyes.

This summer has been spent working and camping and hanging out with the kids as much as I can. They leave Aug 9 and Aug 21st and school starts Aug 23rd for the youngest. We bought a new camper and I am really loving my weekends at the lake, relaxing and checking out from the busyness of everyday life.

I have lost 19 pounds since first part of April. I had rejoined WW and then started listening to a podcast called Losing 100 pounds by Corinne Crabtree. It has been a game changer for me. She also has a free fb page called phit-n-phat and a paid monthly group. She is a life coach that focuses on the mental aspect of weight loss. Someone here at SP had mentioned her and I googled it and so happy I did. I wish I could remember who mentioned her to me because I want to thank them personally. I thought it was a response to one of my blogs and I will keep looking to see if I can find it. Anyway, this is the missing piece to the puzzle I have been missing for years! I have gained so much information to apply to my life and I am seeing so many positive changes! The weight loss is just a bonus!!!! You should check it out sometime!

I will check in periodically but not every day. I want to enjoy life doing things and that is not just sitting at my desk on the computer. But I do promise I will check in every few weeks or so...

Hope everything is good with all of you!

    So glad you're embracing this last summer before the college years begin, and congrats on the weight loss. It was so nice to "see" you again. I had bookmarked the phit-n-phat website back when you mentioned it the first time, and had looked at it a few times but never spent much time listening to the podcasts. Knowing how it turned things around for you is motivating, so thanks for the reminder. Thanks for checking in, I've missed your blogs.

    Hi Kammy. Glad to hear from you. Time just flies and the kids grow so fast. I can't believe my two are now in their 30s and grandchildren between 13 and 3. Missed a lot working so continue enjoying your summer ad time with your family. I'm a little jealous on the cruise and Alaska. It's been a dream of mine for a long time. One day.

    Enjoy the rest of the summer. Take time for you.

    Welcome back Kammy. I've missed your blogs. I knew that life was crazy busy for you, and I'm glad you did take a break to enjoy this time with you kids and family. What an exciting time this was for you and them. Life should be settling down once school starts for your youngest. He's going to get into a routine, and now with the other 2 at college you will have more time for you this year.

    Glad you enjoy the camping thing with hubby and son? I use to like to go camping but at my age now, if it doesn't come with room service I don't go. LOL I did a lot of camping (every type) in my life, and now its on to something else. Funny enough, hubby who just loved camping feels the same.

    The trips must of been terrific! I know going to Alaska was one of our favorite cruises. The mountains take your breathe away.

    Keep us informed as it is always good to hear from you. Take care and keep on your journey of being healthy. I myself have done absolutely nothing and now trying to get back on track once again.

    Take care Kammy!

    Sounds like you have a full summer planned. Enjoy your kids. I have one left at home and they will be 15 this year. Just 2 more years and they will graduate high school and go off to college. Not looking forward to that but at the same time I am.
