Back on the wagon.

I have been "yoyo dieting" for the last six or so months.  Well, actually only the last 2 months.  Pretty much just since my husband came home.  I was doing really well, no skimping on my diet, no cheating, no eating anything bad for me, and even losing 24 pounds.  Now that my husband's home, it's SO easy to fall back into old eating habits because the food that I should avoid is there and it's always available because he refuses to eat like me.  Not an excuse, just...an explanation?

Anyway, so I have recently jumped head first back into my way of eating because I noticed that I've gained back 5 pounds and that's a big no no for me.  I was pre-diabetic and definitely don't want to keep heading that way.  The doctor said that a healthy weight for me is between 110 and 125.  Without saying how much I weigh, I will just say that I have a ways to go haha!

I'm starting to feel bad about myself, too.  I know that it comes from eating crap all the time instead of the healthy alternatives that I was eating.  I guess I need to put on my big girl pants and learn to say no when that delicious food that's terrible for me is available.

Okay, off that.  I am still diligently working on my Bold Blues blanket.  I am sewing the last 12 squares on it and then working the border and it will be done!

I saw some cross stitching work and decided that I need to start stitching again.  I really loved doing it and it was very calming for me.  I think tonight I will put on a TV show and just stitch until I'm ready for bed.  My Geisha needs some love, after all.

No pictures today, but maybe some pictures tomorrow or the next day depending on when I finish my throw or how much progress I make on my stitching.  I'm off to go finish cooking dinner.  Happy stitching, everyone!


I did make something that I totally forgot to share!  I am making my husband an Easter basket in secret and I just finished a Yoshi egg pouch to add to it!

It isn't much, it's a basic pouch pattern and I used my general crochet knowledge to make little circles to make the spots.  Took me roughly an hour to make all the pieces and stitch it together.  It's stuffed to the brim with atomic fireballs in the picture, so don't mind its lumpiness.  He's getting a Yoshi amigurumi to go along with this stuff in his basket.  Sadly I think I spent more time on his basket than I did the kids' this year!

  1. First, it's been a while since I've been on your blog and the first thing I saw was your new avatar picture--you look FABULOUS! New you, new hair! Don't get discouraged and totally fall off of the healthy bandwagon.
    Second, I love that you were able to create that Yoshi pouch. I cross stitched this really awesome BSG/Cylon piece for my friend that said "Get the frak outta my kitchen" by piecing together a few different patterns to get what I wanted. I love having the ability to make things for my people!
