Distractions are good
Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Ok, so it's getting easier to keep in my calorie count this week. My body is no longer convinced I'm trying to kill it by starvation. But, habits die hard, so it's distraction time!
I've discovered that in order to not mindlessly eat, just because, I have to keep my hands and mind busy.
Now, I love to read, but there's only so much of that I can do before my eyes are exhausted, so I move on to sewing. I'm not much of a seamstress, it never interested me when my mother tried to teach me as a teenager. However, I then had kids, and wanted to be capable of making something for them, so I took up quilting.
I LOVE it. And now it's going to help me keep within my limits this week!
The first thing I did yesterday is make a dress I've been promising my daughter I would attempt. She is thrilled with it, she's only three so doesn't see all the flaws I do, and it was a GREAT starting point.
Now I plan to work on a lover's knot quilt for a couple I know who just celebrated their tenth anniversary.
Yes, distractions are good!
