Wednesday Weigh In

Well, here it is...not so much of any good news:
I gained .4 lbs!!!!
This past week I have been lifting weights more...but still keeping up on cardio.
Saturday I splurged on kettlecorn and also had a corn dog...but that can't be what kept me from losing?
But I noticed I have been very hungry!! last week I was eating around 1200 calories. this week its been about 1400 calories each day. That would explain my gain. But what the hell am I suppose to do? I'm hungry!!! This is such a miserable game.
I've decided to change my weigh in to saturday morning that way it will be easier for me to reflect what happened through out the week.  My week will go from Sun-Friday with Saturday morning weigh in.
That way I don't really have to get my weekend mixed in with my week.  I will also come up with some weekly goals. I feel like I need to be more strict with my blogging because right now I feel like i'm on the edge of giving up.
  I just need to take the advice of this scale!

That # will not define who I am!

Ok, so you know how I handled the news of my gain?
(and I do not recommend you try this at home)
I love trail mix! It is my weakness. I ate the whole bag! It was soooo good. (700 calories later) I enjoyed every minute of it and hopefully now that I got it out of my system (or rather in my system) I can move on with my life. Tomorrow is a new day. I will be doing about 45 minutes of cardio tomorrow. I didn't work out today...I feel so lazy...mostly because I pigged out on trail mix :(

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
