Its Been A Long Week

This week was a write-off activity wise, I've not gone to the gym, Taekwon-Do, for a run or even a walk this week.  My cold kinda knocked me on my ass for a few days.  I finally had to take a sick day on Tuesday, as I didn't have a voice by the end of the work day Monday.  I am feeling better but I'm still tired, instead of wearing myself down further I'm giving my body time to get better.  There's been some early nights for me.

What has this mean for my battle with those extra pounds I've been struggling with over the last month?  I had figured last week had been a write off, I had eaten out Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.  Once again my body surprised me, and I lost a pound!  Since I'm not being active this week I've been very mindful of what I've been eating, and hopefully it'll pay off at my next weigh in.

I have done some stitching this week, but not a lot.  Here's where Celestial Dragon stood at bedtime last night.

Despite my cold there is another reason why I haven't been stitching much!  This is the reason :

I treated myself to an iPhone!  What a fun, and wonderful toy!!!  I'm in love, its almost better than a man!

Hope you're feeling better soon, Dani. I don't have an IPhone but I do have an ITouch and I know how much fun you're having. It almost keeps me from stitching!

Great stitching Dani. Hope your cold clears up soon. My hubby and son both are addicted to their i-phone.

Casa Pearl said...

It's smart to take it easy until you're feeling back to full strength. And congrats on the stitching progress - those colors are just so vivid. Hope you're back to 100% quickly.

Mylene said...

Sorry to hear you were not feeling well lately, Dani.
Take care and hope you feel better very soon.

Donna said...

Take care of yourself and get back to the old Dani soon!
I understand about your new play toy. An Iphone or Ipod hasn't caught my attention as something I had to have.
Now the Ipad. That is a different story. Since day 1 when I read about it, I have wanted one!
Congrats on your new phone!

Lynn said...

Sorry to hear you're down and out. Hope that cold exits soon. Your stitching looks great! Enjoy your iphone.

Myra said...

I hope you are feeling better. Cool Iphone, lots of gizmos and gadgets to play with there. Your stitching is coming along nicely - gold and blue is such a great combo.

Michelle said...

I hope you feel better soon and get enough rest! Celestial Dragon is looking great - I love those knotted corners!

Enjoy playing with your new phone:)

Here's hoping your cold is just a cold and not allergies ... here in the Northeastern USA we are dealing with the highest pollen counts in decades ... due to the heavy rains we have had recently ... predictions are that the Spring allergy season will last longer and be more severe than usual and that the late Summer/early Fall allergies will be nigh on just as bad.

Celestial Dragon is one of my favourite ever pieces but I don't think I'd have the patience to do it myself. I do love it when I see other stitchers doing it though. I watch their update and dream lol

Hope you're feeling better soon!

Alice said...

Celestial Dragon is going to be gorgeous! I hope you feel well again soon. Have fun with the iPhone.

I love your progress on your stitching! Enjoy your iPhone. I love mine. I have gotten addicted to checking my e-mail, twitter & facebook constantly, to see if anybody's posted.

Aussie Stitcher said...

I hope that you are feeling better soon Dani. I have wanted an iPhone since they first came out, but I couldn't justify it as my mobile was working fine. Instead I bought myself an iPod touch. I love it. I read my blogs off it from anywhere that I can get a wireless internet connection.

Annette said...

What a lovely WIP.
Have fun with you iPhone

Wanda said...

Your Celestial Dragon piece is looking really good. It's also interesting to see how you are stitching it. I laughed when I read about the iPhone. I don't even know what they are exactly or what all they do but they sure are taking over the world it seems!
