The Cat who Loves Wool
Almost Good Enough To Eat
I'm a spinner, knitter & an audio book lover who only exercises with company! And all my bad habits caught up to me at menopause. So, I'm here trying to do something about it. I've heard its much easier to handle the pain of change when you do it with good company!!
I'm aiming at losing a pound a week for as long as it takes!! Oh to see 200 again in this lifetime. I bought a GoWearFit device - similar to the Body Bugg = so I can track my calories burned, steps taken & moderate exercise performed. My basic goal is to walk 3500 steps a day without thinking about it.
I am following a basic HIGH FIBRE, LOW FAT, LOW SALT, LOW SUGAR diet rich in fruits, veggies, beans, whole grains, low fat dairy & lean meats. I try to cook as much as possible at home but do allow myself Sushi, rotisserie chicken & a grilled chicken with Swiss on rye with no butter, no mayo at my favorite coffee shop.
I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada where the trees grow tall, the mountains are high & the water is blue, blue, blue!!
I'm 59, living single with two spinning wheels, bins of wool, plants & audio books. My living space is full of yarn, more yarn & lots of books. And I do small business bookkeeping & tax to support my habits.

Stopping by to say hello! How's your week going?
I learned the knit and purl stitch but could never get past the first row. Somehow there was always a lond price of yarn hanging down. I crochet easy things and enjoy that. Used to cross-stitch til it got too hard on my eyes. Keeping hands busy, especially in the evening., makes snacking a little harder, wouldn't you agree?
Keep and sparking!

Thank you for your information on my blog, no I have not heard of a sugar scrub but will certainly try and find some, living in New Zealand it might come under a different name, my Dr. did tell me not to use soap on them, she seems to think it is dermatitis so have asked her to refer me to a specialist, so am still waiting for a reply. My concern is I might end up with a clot as I have already had a few of those and beem on warfrin which I don't like taking, so try not to scratch which some times is very hard.
