Welcome to the first of the dual purpose Wednesday posts. Firstly Lee’s Work In Progress Wednesday, and secondly Erin’s Weigh In Wednesday, which is really a work in progress on me rather than the sewing pile!
For the sewing WIP part:
My only finish for the week was the Kindle cover for my dad:
I got blocks 3 and 4 of the SHQ QAL done last night, and the 5th block done tonight. Now that we’ve progressed into the more ‘advanced’ blocks we’re moving to one a week rather than 2. I’m not overly thrilled with all my points, but this is a learning exercise…
I also got another x and + block done for the swap while I was at it:
To Be Worked On This Week:
Pattern test # 2
Bag started at new year
For the Weigh In part:
Ugh! Okay, I knew I wanted to shift some weight after what has basically been bored eating at work, and some unwise choices at home in the past few months. About 3 years ago I lost 3 1/2 stone (50 lbs/22 kg for those on other measuring systems). For the most part I was good for the next year and a half, and then I ended up working mad crazy hours for about 8 months at work where I wasn’t getting home to make all my breakfasts/lunches/dinners, and I put some back on again. I then lost a chunk of it, but as I say, back a few months, unwise choices, and we’ll leave it at that!
Weight loss goal: 26 lbs / 11.5 kg
Week’s loss: 0 – just started
Total loss: 0
Distance to goal: 26 lbs / 11.5 kg
Exercise done: Well I ran up the escalator at the station this morning (about 40 steps running) and trudged up the stairs in the office to my floor twice (120 steps x 2) I don’t think walking down them works quite the same! Plus I went on a lunchtime
route march walk. I have also dug out the Wii Fit and The Biggest Loser so Bob and Gillian can shout at me again, but I’ll be doing that on the days when I don’t have a lunchtime sojourn.
Total time exercising: 45 mins (well I only started today!)
Sorry Erin, I’m not posting photies, no-one to take them (and no, I’m not setting up the self timer on the camera ;o) ) Maybe at the end I’ll post one…
