I’ve been running around like a chicken with my head cut off, well minus the blood, guts, and ultimate death of that chicken. Anyway, its been a busy week and I haven’t had much time to post. But I’m doing well. I’ve made it over a week without sugar (in the form of candy, cakes and cookies), I’ve drank my water, I’ve monitored my calorie intake. In fact I made a handy dandy excel spreadsheet with a food journal, daily calorie tracker chart, weight chart, and excercise journal. Nick has even gotten into the weight chart wanted me to track his progress. I’ve also walked every work day since last Wednesday.
This week I started my workout with the Firm Wave system. If I can ever figure out the high-speed movements, maybe I’ll make some progress on shirnking my body. In fact, just with calorie watching, drinking and 3 walks last week I lost 2 pounds. A small victory, but this road is made up of small victories.
Due to all of this, there hasn’t been nearly as much knitting. In fact since I’m walking every day at lunch I’m going to take my work knitting project home, and maybe this weekend I’ll actually finish the Selbevotter gloves. I’m also making progres on Gathering Intentions sleeve. The Alpaca hat is finished, I just need to figure out if I’m in fact going to do the lining, or just send it as is, with a better trimming of the ends. I’m kinda thinking the latter, but I’ll decide that this weekend as well.
Okay, I’d better get in the shower so I can get gas (which is below $2! – wonder how long that will last) before I go into work.
Have a good day, and hopefully some knitting pictures soon. I think for a reward when I lose 30 pounds I’m goign to buy myself a small cheap little digital camera which is easy to use and easy to upload pictures. I absolutely love my Canon SLR Rebel, but its a bit more cumbersone to carry around for a quick picture.
Okay, gotta go shower and change Basil’s paper.
