Knitting is very conducive to thought. It is nice to knit a while, put down the needles, write a while, then take up the sock again.

Why oh why do I torture myself?

Since the beginning of the new year, I have been painfully torturing myself at the gym. I can start to see the results, which is satisfying, but damn the pain! I always thought of myself as a strong person, some what athletic...but I guess that was 10 years ago, when I was actually playing soccer. Nope, I am a lazy sack of shit, that would rather sit my ass on the couch watching a hockey game. I manage to get up and go work out either before or after work, roughly 3-4 times a week. I have also managed to reject the mouth watering cheese cake that my mom keeps making. Unfortunately, my knitting has some what suffered. I am tired all the time and again...I would rather sit my ass on the couch watching a hockey game! With that said, I have started on a jacket! So far I only have about 75% of the back completed, and hope to finish it and start on the front panel this weekend.


  1. Girl, you are gonna love yourself for staying with the program when your jeans are loose, and you see how great you feel as your body gets the message with all those super endorphins pumping. You're an inspiration--I've been slacking off on PT since going back to work, but I did go today for a good workout and will go again on Friday when I have another day off.

  2. I just can't wait till the spring and my little party dress!
