A new month!

I hope everyone .had a fun and safe Halloween!    I'm just glad its over. I was a little nervous about the temptations but I stayed strong.  I had a couple smarties and some licorice. No Chocolate. I just stay away from that because it is so addicting.    So what if you did pig out?  I found a great site for that: http://jillfit.com/2011/05/31/7-ways-de-bloat-indulging/

Moving on....    So whats new?
Well I have been staying away from the scale...trying not to let it get me down. Remember my last post where I wrote down a mini goal about getting up early for cardio?
 well I did it! I followed thru! I got up and was at the gym by 6:15am on Monday, Tuesday and even Wednesday!!! Its great to be able to meet a goal. I'm going to start setting a lot more mini goals that have nothing to do with that ugly scale!
I also have another great piece of news:

I finally got up the courage to  entered the free weights area. I'm not talking about the regular weight machines. I'm talking about the free weights and the curl bar and the area where you do your dead lifts and squats which is in front of the big mirror that all the muscle boys are at. I just decided to walk over there with my head held high and pick up a curl bar and start lifting. 
I'm so glad I had the courage to do that , It took a lot of guts because at my gym it is definitely the guy zone. There were absolutely no girls in that area and you know what???They didn't even care. I guess I thought everyone was going to judge me or that I would get so nervous and drop a weight but none of that happened and now I can get my strength training on! 
I'm so glad I had the courage to get over myself and you know what? after I did my first set of dead lifts I felt so cool! Yeah, I was in front of the mirror lifting weights with the muscle men!  

Also, my new weigh in day is going to be Saturday Morning.  Hopefully I will have lost some weight...even if its only .4ounces...I'll take it.

In the meantime I want everyone to set a mini goal that can be achieved in 1 week! You will love the happiness you feel when you meet your goal!
I will share my new goal with you on Monday (the beginning of the new week)

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

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!
