I'm adding a pic of my current attempt at crochet. So far I'm just doing a single stitch, and I"m sure I'm doing absolutely everything totally wrong.  I'm not even sure at this point what it will be - I think I was aiming for something 'scarfy', but... Well, you tell me.  After you pick yourself up off the floor laughing. 


See all those curves - that's natural, and it means I'm doing something horribly wrong. I just can't figure out what, LOL.  But I'm sticking with it.  Because I'm just used to torturing myself, I guess.

I'm also trying to alternate walking with a home workout - 21F is a little too cold for me, haha.  I tried a new low impact HIIT routine for beginners by a place called HasFit - I followed the easy part and still nearly died. But I can feel the difference still - not 'OMG sore' but what passes for stomach muscle feels tighter.  I'm hoping that alternating walking 30 minutes with doing this workout for 30 minutes - as in, either one each day - will help some of my ankle and foot pain.  I also need to get better shoes, that's next on the list.  At some point in the next month I"ll have to find a way to deal with the inevitable lower back pain. Not 'OMG I think I pulled something' but 'OMG I'm actually getting fitter and it's changing the way my body moves'. 

I would say that I'm doing this for Misha Collins - because one day I want to meet him and not be totally embarrassed about how I look.  But TBH, it's mainly for my hubby and a little for me.  And maybe a Little for Misha. So, like 2/5 for Hubby, 2/5 for me, 1/5 for Misha.  At the moment, I weigh probably as much as hubby, but I'd like to weigh considerably less than I do now. 

trigger warning, figures and numbers ahead..... I'll tell you when they're past..... (hint, look for this color again)



Currently, I think I weigh about 220, and I"m 5'9 or 5'10.  I'd like to get down to around 150-160; I feel like that's reasonable. 




Okay, the numbers are over....

One of the things I've been working on are: trying to only eat when I'm hungry.  I know this sounds like a no-brainer, but I'm an emotional eater.  So only eating when I'm hungry is a pretty big deal.  At this point, I've been trying off and on for several years just to be able to record what I eat - not like calories and details though. I can only manage about a day and a half of recording before I get really horribly stressed out over it and quit.  So only eating when I'm hungry is a lot of work for me. I'm finding that there are two main times of the day I get hungry, so I'm trying to only eat reasonably then, and maybe one or two small snacks. For me right now, that means I order a footlong sub and it ends up being two meals.  That's a change for me.  Maybe one day I'll be able to make it three meals. 

Anyway, better get ready for work....

I'm so proud of you my friend for trying to make a major life changing moment.  I pray

nothing but the best for you as you move forward in this awesome goal of yours.  I also

need to lose some weight, so that my life can become much more manageable without

medicine for this and that.
