Quick Update

Hi everyone! Busy times again, I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped this weekend, oh well I'll have to make up for that this week.


I finished one framing job (out of 5 I bought supplies for on Saturday). Another grad composite.


I've been stitching where I can find the time, here's Robyn's RR. Not much longer and it'll be in the mail!
Tomorrow is weigh in day. I'm not sure how I did this past week, my eating was a little bit all over the map. I did pretty well in terms of following the healthy guidelines and eating my points, but I've had weeks where I've eaten better. I just wrapped up at 30-Day trial at Curves, and I have to say very happy with the results. Between diet and exercise, in a month I've lost about 5lbs, 1% of my body fat, and about 7 inches! I would of liked to have continued with a Curves membership but I can get a better deal on a membership at Goodlife through a corporate plan. So my next step, checking out Goodlife. I've got someone I met through work (a supply teacher) who has her personal trainer's certificate and is willing to put together a plan for me.
I'm looking forward to the end of June and its not far away! This means my life will calm down... photography class will be over, the framing demands will slow down (I hope), and I might be caught up with my deadline stitching. Oh what a dream!

Nice progress on your RR. Interesting to read your feedback on Curves as well - we have one here just 5 minutes walk away, and I've been tossing up whether to try them out but been reluctant a thy're not a 'real' gym (ie no classes etc) ... hmmm, might be worthwhile checking out their prices even if it's more short term :)

The rr looks great.

Good for you Dani! I've given up on my gym for now. I've had a few injuries lately and the gym was aggravating them. I'm hoping to return in a couple of weeks before I reverse everything I'd accomplished!
The RR looks great. It won't be long now and you'll have all that extra time. School is coming to a close very soon, yeah!!

Your framing looks great, and your RR square is coming along wonderfully. I love the summer theme this one has. Congratulations on the weight loss and keeping up with curves. Hopefully you'll like the new exercise place you're trying out just as much.
