I've Been a Busy Bee

I think it is time for a update, Don't you think?

Here it is!!! First off the diet was going quite well but like normal I have hit a road block and it is called what was I thinking!!! Really it has not been to bad I have lost 8 lbs and a couple of inches. So I am not doing too bad, but I am not doing too well either. There are just some days I just do not want to eat but I have always done that. Also the diet Dr. Pepper is getting in the way to, because I really do not like water. Oh and the excising is also an issue. Winter is a hard time to exercise. I am so ready for Spring so I can get out in the yard and play. Now it is time to drop all the excuses and get down to business again. Once I finish cycle 3 I will start over again with either cycle 1 the beginning or cycle 2 which is every other day of cycle 1. Yes you can do that. I can tell you that I have learned a lot from this book the 17 day diet. You really do not seem that you are on a diet at all. You are really learning to eat better food choices and in smaller portions. I have also found that I really like the ground turkey instead of lean hamburger. It just seems to taste better to me and of course it is better for you. I have also found that eating better I am sleeping much better and I have more energy as well.
I will say this I do not give up on anything easy or not at all so I am going to stick to my guns and get this weight off!!!!

Now to my shabby chic bedroom I have one wall left to paint and I can put everything together. I have found a few items to add to the decor as well. I still have a few pieces to get but I can get them as I go.

I have my bears done for the online Blooming Bear show in March. I might add one more not sure yet. I wish I could show you photos but you will have to wait. So Sorry!!! ;)

I have been working on a couple of other smaller projects as well. I am teaching myself how to crochet again. It has been a long time since I have done that. I mean like Jr. High School. Its a good thing I am a quick learner. Now if I can do that with knitting I should be sitting pretty. Again it has been a long time.

I do have another project swimming around in my head too, but it will be a surprise. I know my bad! LOL

Now I have a little story to tell you. I think everyone knows that I use copper coated BB's for weight in my bears and critters. I get them at Walmart or K-Mart or my wonderful Mother picks them up at garage sales. Ok I was at K-Mart the other night picking up a few items and some BB's. I got to the the register to check out and the lady there asked me for my birthday for the BB's. Yes, I was carded for BB's. The funny thing is that you have to be 16 years old to buy these things. It is the state law here in Missouri. Ok I am not 16 not even close. Not only that I do not want to go through my teenage years again. I am 48 I do not look 16 I mean really now I think that is too much. The real thing is that I am short, I mean only 5' 1". Ok yes I was this height at 16 too. So that has a lot to do with be carded. Sometimes it pays in a good way to be vertically challenged. I at least got a good laugh as well as my parents when I told them. Now I wish I was at least 24 again. That would be sweat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now my fur babies update. They are all doing grrrrrrrrrrrrreat!!!!! Shadow is being calm as usual. Lucky is being her old self which is good. Her paw is all healed up. and Kayla well she is being her normal little stinker self. So all is pawsitively purrfect!!!!

Well I think I have covered everything I hope at least.

Until next time,

Puppy kisses and Bear hugs,
