I had a rough day yesterday with a bad migraine, which meant time in bed and no stitching, Taekwon-Do, etc. I hate migraine days, it started to creep back today but I took meds instead of bed, I didn't want it to knock me down again.
I did get to stitch today, and of course Tour came back out again. Finally, I am in love with this piece! I was recently asked via my blog comments, how many pages is this chart, it has a total of 8 pages, but pages 7/8 don't have a lot of stitching to them. If you'd like to see the full design, go here.
Now I've got a couple of more pictures a day for you.
Tuesday January 12 - A view into the village from my driveway. Across the park's parking lot there is a small and seldom used graveyard with this beautiful stone building. I don't know the history of this building if its the original church or its purpose, the Anglican church has been around since 1845. I think I should ask some of the good ole' boys who hang out at the General Store, they know everything!
Wednesday January 13 - My Christmas cactus has gifted me with a second bloom this winter season... for some reason I get just one or two blooms a year. Probably not caring for it properly. I pulled out my macro lens for this one.
Tonight I recommitted myself to going to the gym... yup a paid membership going unused. Well, only unused since October when I started focusing on my 3rd Degree Black Belt testing. Its been a battle get get myself back in there, but today I finally did and it felt great! So I'm hoping going to the gym two times a week and Taekwon-Do two times a week will be the right combination to beat my weight back down again.
I haven't really talked about my weight loss battle in a long time. Though I am a Lifetime Member at Weight Watchers (via Doctor's note), it really is a lifetime battle! It has been just as much of a fight to keep my weight down/off. When I last weighed in at the beginning of December I was JUST within my 2lbs limit before you have to pay for your meeting (it creeped up a bit that week before I was off for holidays). I'm half way through January and I'm working really hard to get back down within my 2lbs limit... now don't get me wrong I didn't pig out over the holidays (though I did enjoy it), I worked really hard to loose 1lb over the two week Christmas/New Years season. This week I was back up just a little bit (half a pound I don't know why), which was rather deflating but I've picked myself back up and I'm working at it again. So let me share with any of you out there who is in the weight loss battle, its not an easy road, and its not a short road... but its worth the effort.
