Day 521/Just another day

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

emoticon Today is the day! I get to start walking again today! I'm feeling much better, still have some nausea, but I'm hoping that walking will help. I can't wait. I'm going to walk for at least a mile after I get done with this blog. And I'm going to try to get my strength training in today too. I've been researching what exercises target what areas and I have some exercises that I'm going to add to do every day to help target those areas.

emoticon I got up 10 minutes before my alarm. I love when I do that. Waking up on my own is so much better than waking up to an alarm. Plus I knew if I went back to bed I would wake back up groggy and awful.

I'm not sure what happened but my Fitbit would not charge and would not sync. Took me two days to get the thing working, had to factory reset it. But with all the data backed up on the app and the website I only lost the information from the two days that it took me to figure out how to get it to work again. And I was sick those two days, so it's not like I got my 10k steps or anything, so no harm done.

emoticon I've been keeping track on paper, how much money I've earned for my pounds lost and steps taken and stuff like that. I've stopped counting 10k steps as a goal because on days that I walk I always reach that many. But, maybe I could count 20K as my new goal, that is hard to reach. I get $10 for every pound lost and every week I reach my fitness goals and now every time I reach 20K steps. Time to start actually putting the money into my account. I was just counting it out on a spreadsheet (got $80 so far) but it doesn't seem real to me because I don't actually have the money and if I just count it on a spreadsheet there is no guarantee I'll actually have the money on hand when I get done. So I'm starting next week actually putting the money into my account. That way I'll actually have the money in the bank when I get down to my goal. I figure I'll at least have 1,300 dollars at the end of this to spend on my new wardrobe. :)

emoticon Going to start a new sewing project today. I like when I have a project going, it keeps my mind from wandering to food and snacking and it keeps me busy and productive. I'm still working on being able to sew a straight line consistently. You'd be surprised how hard it can actually be. Especially with stretchier or slippery fabric. Today I'm going to work on making a new book tote for my Bible. Means I won't have a pattern, again, but I can get the measurements off of my Bible and use that. I'm going to make it the new way I talked to Aunt G about so it should be something I'd be happy to take to church with me, and not be all ragged inside where you can see it (I hope!).

Between sewing, homeschool and cleaning, I should be one busy woman. Plus I have a poncho to finish crocheting for youngest DD, one to make for oldest DD, and I promised my therapist to make a crochet baby hat for her intern who just had a baby last week. My best friend is having a rough time of it, she has started having anxiety, so I'm going to get her some gel foot socks and put them in a gift tote that I'm going to make to give to her. Hopefully I can also get the kitchen clean today. It is a disaster since I have been sick and not constantly cleaning it.

Hope you all have a great day! emoticon emoticon

    What a sweet idea with the Gel socks!
    When I sew slipper or stretchy material, I use toilet paper between the layers. Then when sewn the TP just pulls off. I made most of my daughters party dress, and they are never cotton- LOL With stretchy fabric, use the stretch stitch or the zig zag and don't pull on the fabric.

    I also taped the 5/8" seam on my machine so that I could keep the straight line. It helped tremendously. If I were a quilter, I would use a different color tape and do the 1/4 inch too.

    I am a leftie and need all the little things to make it easier!

    Good idea starting a cash kitty!

    Enjoyed your blog!

    You are going to be very busy. But don't overdo after being so sick. Take it slow and easy. emoticon
