Saturday Weigh in

Sorry, this is a day late....I have been really busy sewing these cute little pouches...
but more on these later.

I'm at 147lbs
Last week I was 147.2   so that is a .2 lb loss
I can expect that. It was that T.O.M and I ate everything in sight! I usually eat around 1300 calories and on Wednesday, Thurs & Friday I ate around 1700 calories!  It seems like there is always a set back!
Well My goal is 140 by next week and I don't think its going to happen. So during this challenge I was suppose to lose 10 lbs...well I lost 5. ..Hey I'll take that!  Wednesday i go in for my health assessment appointment and I will see the #'s as far as body fat % and how much I have lost in a year...they will even take my waist measurement...Yikes.   I will post the results and that will be the last posting I'm going to have on this weight/fitness/diet issue.
One strategy I found that helps is Making Daily Goals

My goals look like this:

Saturday was: No sugary cereals. (i love eating dry cereal like raisin bran crunch and special k)
Sunday: 45 min cardio
Monday: Zumba 6:30
Tuesday: 45 min cardio

So basically make yourself accomplish 1 thing that day. We can all do one thing right?
And Stay busy! I have been sewing all weekend...that has definitely kept me out of the kitchen.
And late at night if you have a craving reach for some green tea.

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
