Starting Over

I just came from The Gym (okay, Curves) where I have been a member for a whole stinkin' year. I am 3 pounds lighter than I was a year ago. Three lousy pounds!

I have tried rewards. I have tried self-imposed chocolate/chips/french fries fasts. I refuse (yet) to resign myself to being this weight for the rest of my life.

I have a closet full of great clothes that are too tight. I NEED to do this and now! Maybe if I went there more than just once a week for 30 minutes. . .

On a knitting note: I finished the leg/cuff of the purple sock from hell and did the heel flap/turn last night. Today, I will pick up the gusset stitches and continue on to the foot (no more bobbles in the pattern, so it should go faster!)

Here's the bobble lace, up close and personal:

On another knitterly note: I am at the shoulders of my Santa.

Had to get pink (stop laughing) yarn yesterday for the face. I wisely went to the hardware store for this (Red Heart in all the colors: $1.39US a skein) because I knew I wouldn't be tempted to buy more than just the pink I absolutely need. It's brighter than I would like, but it will do. It will have to do. It's here. Paler/better colors are someplace else, mocking me and calling to me with siren song: "Just come on over here and touch this blue stuff, and this green stuff, and this wonderful red stuff." "Back, back!" I say.
Heh. Pink. PINQUE. Nanny nanny boo boo, I say.

Heading out to Michael's to pick up some stuff for Blankets. Wish me strength ... I am NOT going to buy yarn! Maybe.
You will buy much yarn!
I did. A lot. Want some Kroy?
