What do you do when all you want to do is bake cookies all day, but you’re on a diet? Oh, the torture!

 

So far so good! January 25, 2008

Well, it’s been 5 days since my resolve to better myself. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I did lots of exercising, yesterday I took off(but actually walked for a good hour or so to visit my Grampie in the Infirmary while he rested after his ankle surgery), and today I am going to be doing that long cold walk again and hopefully something later tonight too. I’ve been eating good, and not too much, and I have dropped 2 of the pounds I somehow put on last week(my boyfriend’s mom brought us lots of cookies-that’s why). I feel good. And I am hopefully going to keep this cheerful optimism for a while.
On the knitting front, I finished my criss cross gloves but have not taken pics yet. I had purchased some ribbon for them last week, but it’s too crunchy for them so I am going to have to substitute something different next time I get out to Michaels. I starts the front of the garter and am….close to halfway. It’s taking a lot longer than the gloves. But I am still on my original skein of yarn! I am so in love with Louet! I also started some Kitty Dim Sum from http://www.knitty.com. I need to go pick up some catnip today while I am out 🙂
My purse frames finally came too! So I am looking forward to making some bags and coin purses this weekend! 🙂
Have a good weekend, all!

 

It’s Time January 21, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — hellcat @ 6:32 pm


Well, I’ve been feeling a little down lately, stressing about things I can’t change and things I can and all that stuff. I decided this morning that it’s time to stand up and take responsibility for the things I can change and have screwed up and set things right again. It’s time to be productive again and not waste all my time watching tv and being lazy. Granted-I WILL miss the obscene knitting time, but I have to reward myself with knitting time after actually accomplishing something, like working out an obscene amount. Like I just did. I swear I feel like I am not going to be able to move at all tomorrow, but it was worth it.
On the knitting front, I am done one of my criss cross gloves and just have a little ways to go on the second. I’m very excited to have them done! And so soon! Then I will try steam blocking them and maybe they will be all ready to wear tomorrow-not that I’m going anywhere 🙂 I don’t know what to work on now, though. I still have the Sophie bag that I started, but I just don’t seem to feel like working on that RIGHT now, so I need to find something else to occupy me. And make some more jewelery too.
Today is a good day, I think. A new beginning.

Life is killing my buzz January 19, 2008

Okay, so the shiny new-ness of being unemployed and having lots of time to knit has worn off. I am broke. Very very broke. I’m still loving the free time, the sleeping in and the knitting time, but I am starting to stress out again, which I don’t want. My system is finally back to normal from the last 2 years of working/eating out/stress, and I don’t want to go back to being sick 😦
We have company this weekend, so that should be fun, anyways. Started the criss cross gloves on Wednesday night and have reached the thumbhole part and am stopping, because I am not entirely sure what to do. I have instructions there for it, but I’m nervous there’s something there that I’m supposed to know that they didn’t include in the pattern. I’ve run across that before. All I know is it says nothing about putting the stitches on a holder, but I have watched friends do mittens and they put the stitches on a holder until the end and then got back and knit them. So I’m waiting until Lisa is around to help me. 😛 Just in case. Always ere on the side of caution. They are turning out great so far, though!
That’s about it, I suppose. If anyone wants any jewelery, check out my etsy page, I could use some sales. 😦
