The Struggle is Real.

The weight loss has been slooooooooooow lately.

I'm blaming it on the change in the season.  It's getting colder outside, darker outside, and all the good shows are showing new episodes again.  Plus it's prime knitting season.  Right now I feel like I want to knit lots and lots and lots of warm things instead of going for my walk/runs.  If only I could knit on the treadmill.  I'm afraid I'd faceplant and skin my knees, elbows, and face if I tried.  The treadmill is SO boring to me.  Even if I am watching TV or listening to my books on my phone (I love doing that while I'm outside walking, by the way!).  I also like to walk outside better because when I do a big loop, there really is no option to quit when you are halfway through your walk.  You kinda have to keep going if you want to get home.  On the treadmill, it's very easy to decide to hit the stop button whenever you feel like it.  I'd rather not even have that option.

So as we hit the arctic freeze here in Northern MN, I'll be glad to listen to any of your suggestions on exercise I can do at my home.  I just gotta find something that will work into my schedule and something that doesn't bore me to tears.

I'm trying hard to keep my eating on track, and I'm doing pretty well with that.

I won't give up!  Because it feels SO freaking good to put on jeans that are too big for me.  :)

And now for your viewing pleasure, a few things I've been knitting, while not exercising:
Christmas ornament mittens!

Full sized Christmas stockings!

Just had to share this one - I call it "Life of a Dog of a Knitter".  This was how she and I spent last Sunday.  It's not my fault she wanted to lay there.  I only got a few ear twitches when it tickled her just right, but it didn't bother her enough to make her move. :)

And this pic was texted to me by my lovely daughter this morning who is home today for the long MEA weekend. It is a Christmas ornament also.  I can't explain the awesomeness of this to you.  She's home from school, and is knitting.  Also, I'm very jealous that she's knitting and I'm not at this moment.  Heheheh.  

There will be more info to come on why I'm we are making Christmas items, and what we'll be doing with them.  It's very exciting, so stay tuned!!

  1. It's never too early to make Christmas items! And I can attest from attempting to knit while on an elliptical that no, it doesn't work. :)
