I have been meaning to re-do my cutting and pressing area for years, I mean YEARS. So this past weekend I finally did. I bought a kitchen island from IKEA and my son and I built it. It's perfect...and now I even have a little extra storage!
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!
