So where have I been?

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Last Friday I was reading other members blog posts. There was one that crocheted a scarf and a light bulb went off! She provided the link which I will too and the scarf is so nice that I decided to try this.

I was meeting a friend in Petaluma to see her new house and then we went out for lunch in the charming downtown. Afterwards we were walking around, I bought some heirloom seeds for our garden and was telling my friend about the project I was thinking of. She took me to her local knit shop and a crocheter was born :).

The fibers were fantastic and I was pretty excited and bought yearn and a crochet hook. Now you have to understand that at this point I didn't know how to do it. I went back to the link that the other spark member provided and the photos didn't do it for me. Then I had the idea of going to YouTube and put the name of the stitch in and VOILA! I still couldn't understand it because I am left handed so searched for the left handed version and found that and was finally off and running. Here is the link and a photo of my finished product :). It really took my mind off food!

Feeling Proud!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Today I called a friend to see if she could walk with me. Unfortunately she was too busy. I stayed in bed feeling sorry and lazy. Finally I got my sorry self up and walked for 78 minutes, did 8700 steps and travelled 3.5 miles!

Just trying to stay motivated. Still feeling positive. The articles I've been reading are really helpful. Goal setting is really important.

    Noticed your huddle on the slowest loser huddle board today. Hang in there! Don't forget to go easy on yourself and take one day at a time!! I started the same time as you and am up and down and so am now concentrating on small steps. It is helping!!

    It's been cold, snowy, and comfort foods are boundless. But if I want to shed these multi layered clothes this summer, I need to stick with my Spark buddies. Thanks for keeping me focused on my goals.

    Watching Youtube transformations, workouts, and random health/fitness advise is great motivation as well!
