Camping or Crafting?

Well that is a hard question!?! 

OK, not really...

Losing and Being Lazy

In the past 3 weeks, there has been very little exercising.  In order to reach my goal, I need to make sure to stick to my routine...watch my calorie intake and exercise!  Watching my calories is surprisingly easy.  I watch them on my plate and then I watch them get shoved into my mouth.  Kidding aside, I have done pretty well with the calories, slipping up just a little.  I am ok with slipping up though.  I don't believe in denying yourself of stuff you crave, because when you deny you binge.  It's all in moderation and being aware of what you are eating.

Where am I at towards my goal?  I am down a total of 16 pounds, in two months, and still 10 pounds to reach my first goal.  The last month has been slow and not very motivational, but at least I seem to still be losing and not gaining.

Back to the treadmill....

New Product

I have wanted to come up with a cute crochet journal, and a few weeks ago my mother helped me come up with this great idea.

This pocket sized journal is about 3"x3" square and 3/4" thick.  I used a nice drawing paper for the inside pages and cotton yarn for the cover.  Record your thoughts, draw pictures, use as a phone book...it's up to you, be creative!

Here is another view of the journal...

I am making them in varying sizes, colors and paper.  For sale soon!  Inquire via email.

I made nothing Monday.

Last Friday, a crazy storm hit the island.  It was raining so hard you were soaked the minute you walked out into it, the wind was blowing in all directions, and at one point during the day the rain was pelting my office window so much I couldn't even see out them.  It felt like a hurricane and we don't get hurricanes here.  Needless to say, I was planning on a stay at home weekend full of rain, dark clouds and crafting.  If anything I needed to make something for "I made it Monday", right?

I woke up Saturday morning to an amazing sight....blue skies and SUNSHINE!  So Saturday was spent at the Races (a local race club has weekend races during the summer and you can go to watch, dirt bikes, four wheelers and stock cars race) and Sunday was spent sitting in front of a camp fire next to a calm river with my hubby and dogs.  No crafting, but lots of vitamin D! 

Doesn't this look relaxing?

"I Made It" Monday!

There has not been massive amounts of work getting completed.  I blame it on the fact that I am hungry!  Ever since I started cutting calories I am always hungry, and even if I am not hungry, I am still thinking about food....I AM ALWAYS HUNGRY! 

Back to something better than my whining...

Crochet earrings are definitely on my inventory for the bazaars this coming holiday season.  I may even start putting them on my Etsy for sale or do a giveaway on this blog.  I am absolutely in love with the way they look and feel.  I may have to invest in a magnifying glass after making too many pairs, but for now my glasses are doing their job.

Pigging Out

There are two things everyone here looks forward to when they leave the island....Food and Shopping.  With only a handful of restaurants to choose from, (same goes for shopping) we tend to go crazy when we enter a big city with so many choices.  Even my 34 year old husband drooled like a toddler that was just sat in front of a huge pile of lolly pops.  "I want to go here...and there....oooo and over there".  "You will only be here for three days, pick wisely", I kept telling him.  "You can't eat everything."  (Maybe he could of if I would of let him)

Needless to say, when you live where I do you don't even try to stick to diets on vacation, and I did not.
