I still plan on writing more on this in the future but here is my update as of today. I lost 34 pounds, that's 2 pant sizes, this past year by doing some very simple things. I walked...a LOT. Actually the walking got so easy for me that I started running and am now planning on running a 5K. It helped that my son walked with me every day after work for the whole summer...and even in winter when he is home we head out.
To learn to run a 5K I downloaded the Couch to 5K APP for my phone:
And I started weight training:
I didn't really diet though. I hate diets. I just ate more plants (now that is pretty much all I eat)...and drank less wine to be truthful. The best part is I sleep much better...and I don't have heartburn anymore.
In a few weeks a friend and I are going to be taping a video on body mechanics and quilting with the hope of helping eliminate some of the aches and pain associated quilting. I'm looking for some feedback from you guys on what would be most helpful? Where does it hurt?
So,please, leave a comment letting me know what you would like to learn. Thanks!
The original Miss Kyra quilt is part of the Soup for the Soul silent auction. If you are in the Denver area you can attend the event. If you would like to make a bid online you can go to the website and follow the silent auction links.
This wonderful events raises money for Porter Hospice, Saint Anthony Hospice, and the Butterfly Program in Denver.
I have had the Rose of Erin quilting hanging over my banister for a few weeks now. Every time I walked by it I would wonder who I was supposed to give it to. Last week it came to me that it really belonged at my dear friend Kimmie's house. As it turned out, it's perfect for her and her house! It felt so good giving it to her since she is one of my kindred creative spirits. We go on creative adventures a couple of times per year and I always end up with something amazing that I wouldn't have found if I were alone. Love you Kimmie!
