Today I was a big girl and drove into town to get weighed in. I didn't know what the last four days on the road had done to my progress with Weight Watchers. It was nice that the Inn we stayed in provided breakfast, and I made sure to eat some of the fruit every morning. However I don't usually have things like eggs and french toast for breakfast. Also my Mum and I ate out one big meal each day in restaurants, there was no fast food but to us Canadians no matter how healthy a food you choose, we do tend to find things either salty/or sweeter than they're made at home. I'm happy to say my weight didn't go up or down, it stayed the same. I couldn't of asked for a better result. I did have a couple of treats like a ice cream cone from Ben & Jerry's and a Mudslide with dinner yesterday.
I got some great news in the form of an e-mail today! Kathy sent me a quick little message from someone else's computer/e mail account today to let me know that she'll be coming to the Knit One, Stitch Too (formerly the Cross Stitch Cupboard) retreat in October at the Gananoque Inn! Now I have a room mate as Lynn wasn't going to be able to go this year. I'm not planning on taking any classes at the retreat this year so I'm looking forward to being able to just relax and stitch.
Speaking of stitching, I've still not done too much. I'll try to remember to share a progress picture of Moonlight Guardian before I head out to the cottage! Oh yes... I did pick a name for my dragon finally, and its : Indigo! It was suggested by Kathy, I didn't choose this name because she's my very good friend... however there are many times we think along the same wavelength! When I first went on the Internet in the mid 90's when it was still all and ASCII interface and started chatting Indigo was the handle I used... until I realized how common a name it was! Indigo is also the name of a character in a series of books I fell in love with by Louise Cooper. So Kathy thanks for suggesting that one!!!
