Stitch in time

Saturday, September 15, 2012

It is day 4. I need to look at this health/weightloss journey as a crochet blanket. You know, you crochet squares and then stitch together about 100 squares and you have a nice blanket for the bed. In my 50 pound goal more like 500 squares. I naturally want to just finish a project TODAY - the whole blanket. However, today is day 4 and I have not crochet as much as I'd like, probably 1/2 of a small square. However I didn't rip out the other crochet squares I made over the past 3 days, I haven't gone backwards. I need to daily, sit down with my thin yarn and just work at it a stitch at a time, small choices such as water, diet soda instead of regular, 1 doughnut as opposed to 4, skipping a food choice I want. My body was screaming for a butterfinger blizzard on the long drive home tonite. Ohhhhh it makes the drive so much nicer to eat a blizzard after a long day at work. I pass the Dairy Queen and the car wants to turn in. HOWEVER I chose 'no'. I sipped a bottled water, yuck and nonsatisfying LOL. Today, it is one stitch here and there. I need to be satisfied and proud of myself for todays stitches.
