Soooooo, What's Your Passion?
Saturday, April 03, 2010
I answered a sparkmail from a friend asking about qiviut--which is muskox undercoat that gets spun into yarn. I could have answered her in a yes or no, but noooooooooo--I went into a huge long dialog. At the end of my response, I re-read it and sighed. 'Damn! I'm pretty passionate about yarn, fiber, spinning, etc. aren't I?' ran through my mind. I could talk about that stuff all day.
So I think I need to alter my passions. I love to sit on my butt and spin, weave, crochet, knit, and everything that has anything to do with fiber. But that's not getting me any closer to my goal of 250 lb.
Why don't I get that excited/verbal about the walk I took yesterday? It was beautiful! and invigorating! and the perfect length! The air was so clean! and it was a surprise walk, too. I went to work and ended up taking my client's service dog down to the vet for his monthly bath/nail trim, etc. It was early in the morning, a bit cold but not bad, and since it's so close I just walked him down there and walked back. The sun was just peeking out of the clouds now and then, and I was loving life that I got a sneak walk in--it was a little gift to myself. ;)
Then when my daughter got home, I got another gift. A new 'Bender Ball'!! The one we had was losing air pretty bad, and I couldn't use it anymore. I'm probably the reason it's losing air--too heavy--but it didn't say it had a weight limit, so it should have held. For those of you who don't know what a Bender Ball is, click here:
These things are great!! I feel so good after doing a few exercises with this! So I was pretty happy when she brought us both home a new one--each! so if I pop mine, she will still have hers. ;) She is so practical. And she works at a sporting goods store so she got it cheapcheapcheap! So if I pop mine it won't be expensive to replace. Yay!!
I gotta get passionate about physical activity. THAT will help me get closer to my goals.
