Yesterday I was supposed to go and see a client but when I woke up, it was pouring down rain and so we rescheduled to next week. And so I just stayed home and ventured into the sewing room, working on nonsense things. Found a log cabin I had worked on and I finished a couple of blocks. I've been stripping, cutting 1 1/2 inch and 2 1/2 inch strips for future projects.
A friend and I have committed to motivate each other to finishe UFO's and projects each month. So far, last month I finished a quilt top that has been sitting here for months waiting for the last border to go on. Now I can take it to the long armer. My project/ufo for this month is to clean my sewing room. HOnestly, it is a fire hazard and I want to get my fire extinguisher charged up and kept in that room for emergencies.
I also want to finish my Bee in my Bonnet rows. I have 3 rows that are waiting on me, leaves, stars and mittens. Somehow, the mittens don't have much interest for me here in Florida but I do remember mittens.
As for the gym, I got a call from my "new" personal trainer to set up an appmt to see him. So I will stop by the gym after my appmt this morning. The biggest loser competition has been sidelined due to me being sick and the mother in law episodes. Just could not get motivated to go at all. And didn't feel iike it.
However, I have decided to at least watch what I eat and so last night, I bought a roast chicken from Winn Dixie for me and one fried chicken breast for my husband instead of a box of fried chicken which I would have devoured. So the delicious roast chicken, steamed green beans and corn on the cob were my dinner and it was great. Also, I bought a bag of pretzel sticks and they were my snack last night. ANd I had an apple. This morning it appeared that the scale was leaning left of my last weigh in so maybe I'm making progress in that area. I bought the book, EAT TO LOSE, EAT TO WIN by Rachel Beller of Biggest Loser fame. She talks about making sure to eat 35 grams of fiber daily. So I am concentrating on that. Fiber fills you up. I even went out for a 10 min walk with the dog before dinner last night. He loved it.
So yesterday was for me and it will continue for the next 3 days. By Monday maybe I'll be reconnected to life.
