It’s Been A While

September 30th, 2012

Well I’ve been slacking for the end of summer.  I haven’t been going to WW or tracking or exercising, I thought I was doing OK the scale at home showed I was loosing weight and I was feeling pretty good, but….the scale was die-ing and you had to step on it a dozen times and pick the weight that came up the most, so yesterday we went and got a new scale, yep I’m pretty much where I was at the end of July (or March for that matter), so I need to figure out what to do.  Actually I know what to do I just need to do it.  So we’re going to start once again, only this time I need to get back that determination I had at the beginning.

So 2 weeks ago we were on vacation in DC and had  a great time.  Here is a couple of my favorite photos from the day at the mall, cool temps and sun just what we wanted:

And for my knitting I’ve been working a lot and don’t remember what I was working on when I last posted so I’ll just share a pic of my latest shawl that I worked on in the car on the trip down to DC (10 hrs total one way) my Carson Shawl:

Since it is Sunday here are my goals for the week:

Life – I really need to work on the house, it is pretty scary, so my goal for the week is to get up get dressed and work on cleaning, no knitting, tv watching or web surfing until I’ve done at least an hour of house work.

Yarn – I have several things on the needles (I know big surprise) I’m planning on working on my knee high German Stockings, the comfort shawl I’m doing for my Aunt who is having some serious medical issues, and my stricken socks, plus I want to get some dyeing done, but that requires a clean kitchen see life…..

Food/Diet – The biggest thing is actually a thing not to do, I’m not going to drink wine/alcohol, I really need to cut down and I’ve found the best way to do that is to not drink at all for a couple of weeks.  I’m also going to get back to measuring my meals, and track so that I can know what I’m actually eating.

Exercise – I’m going back to water exercise on Monday, and want to walk the dogs most days of the week, maybe I’ll try to do that first before the cleaning…..We’ll see.

This is getting longer than my usual, and is a little photo heavy, but I’ll leave with one more photo from vacation taken after lunch @ Mt. Vernon:
