Not much to report here, this week. I did not buy any fabric. I did finish sewing my stripe blocks for my quilt, but I haven’t finished trimming & pressing. I freehand quilted up four yards of fleece for a customer order.
It’s kind of a pretty cocoa color in real life. The final recipient will be my friend’s father. I think he will like it.
I also sold a baby quilt. So does that count as stash busting? It moved out of my stash…lol.
I had a pretty busy week, otherwise. Monday, I had a sinus headache, pretty much all day. So after work, I was pretty worthless. I did stay on track with the exercise, pretty well, though. I got four workouts done. I wanted to get in a “last chance” workout yesterday, since today is weigh-in day. That didn’t happen, as we got up and went to Amarillo, to pick up DH’s new Skeeter bass boat! So Flat Stanley got to go to Amarillo sooner than he expected, as we will be going on Wednesday, too, for my doctor appt. It will take us a bit to get that written up for the Princess, but that will be coming in a few days. Some of our pics didn’t come out like we hoped, so we may just do more on Wednesday.
I also picked up a new rustic buffet cabinet for the dining room. I’ve been playing around with it this morning, and will feature it in a post in the near future.
On the weigh-in…it was hard to stay off the scale during the week, but I made myself do just that. Weighing everyday can get frustrating, too much ups & downs. But, knowing that I was going to weigh-in AND post it here, really did help me stay on track. I’m not “dieting” per se, just eating more “reasonbly” and healthily. I don’t do well with “diets” that restrict this food or that food, so I don’t do them. I’ve also watched what I drink. I’ve mostly drank water, milk or tea. I keep hearing Jillian from the Biggest Loser saying “don’t drink your calories!” So, with all that rambling said…..my starting weight for the week was 153. My current weight is 150. I lost three pounds this week, for a total weight loss of four pounds. I wish I had one of those scales that does the body fat percentage, too, but I don’t. My DH told me Friday that he could tell I looked smaller. I don’t expect to lose as much this week, as I’ve really been struggling with the 140’s for over a year now, but I just have to not get discouraged and blow it. Oh, and this included eating bacon, eggs & pancakes for supper Thursday night, and going to our favorite Mexican restaurant Friday, and eating cheese chile rellenos. I’m definitely not going hungry…lol!
In knitting news, I have discovered I have project-itis, just like with quilting. I have several items going on different sets of needles, all needing finishing. Mostly scarves, one practice hat, and a special project, a prayer shawl, for someone that needs comforting. I think working on it comforts me, too. I signed up for the knit & crochet online community, Ravelry, and got my invitation to join yesterday. It will take me a while to figure out my way around there, but it looks awesome!
Well, that’s I guess that’s it for my Sunday Report. I have a feeling I might not get much done today, either, but that’s ok. I’m tired!
