It has been an incredibly busy, crazy, fun and lovely almost three weeks!

We went to family camp, then came home and dealt with some business and then I went away again with three of the children for a few days to see our former pastor and his wife. When I got home my husband started a new job! Since he started working I have been baking and doing crafts with my children to enter in the local Fall Fair, getting lessons ready for school to start next week, preserving vegetables and doing the everyday things that need to be done to keep the house in order. Crazy and busy but I LOVE it!!!!

I have to get back to my busy schedule now but wanted to share a couple of things.... eating is going well! I did put on a few pounds while on holidays but they are back off again. Exercise has been very sporadic with the busy schedule but I have been getting in some good runs and strength training in just not consistently.

I have joined Dawne's challenge for September to not indulge in sweets! I sure needed this challenge to get me back off of the treats I have allowed back in on a regular basis. So I am not allowing myself a lick or sniff of anything that I consider a sweet treat; no ice cream, sugar cereal, muffins, chocolate, cookies and/or cake. This is a great challenge right now because all of the baking I am doing for the Fall Fair, I would definitely be 'sampling' my entries otherwise and it could easily lead to a binge!

Blessings to you all and hopefully I will be able to take time to comment more regularly again soon!
