I was diligent at my latest attempt at fitness. In the past I would get frustrated with no progress and quit after three weeks. I also never wholeheartedly did the two prong approach. It was either portion control and watching what I ate or it was exercise; this time it was both. This time I really stuck to it. 10 to 11 weeks later I had lost 0.02 lbs. and given that we women usually fluctuated 2 to 4 pounds in any given day I think I could have actually gained weight. None of the BS about about muscle weighing more than fat satisfied me so I fell off my treadmill routine. Funny thing, the first week AFTER stopping, I lost six punds. I guess I am just destined to be a Rubenesque in my body type.
No treadmill means less reading......so I guess I will hop back on and be happy with the cardio, blood pressure and cholesterol benefits even if there are no benefits shown on the scale.
This is my Candy Corn finish finished. It is a bit lumpy but practice makes perfect on these kinds of things.
Of course a few new fat quarters after shopping with my sister lead me to showing her some recent purchases in my craft room which lead to me needing to do a sort of all my fabrics. You know we keep every scrap and bit of ribbon or trim for someday and she helped me with
my hoarding of bits and pieces the error of my ways and I started yet another sort out this morning.
I pulled my 'collections' and kept them together. A fave of mine, Aunt Grace and 1930's Retro fabrics. Wrapped in the ribbon are strips I have already cut for a strip quilt I am working on.
Then there are these which I know are just perfect for some sort of stitching purse or bag and I think I have just the pattern.
It is fun to 'shop' in your own stash and find gems you forgot you bought. What better way to spend a misty damp afternoon.
