I'll Be Wearing More Than a Smile Now :)
It is now only 5 days until the baby shower and thanks to Martha who suggested my making something homemade for a present I am now more than half way through knitting a gorgeous little outfit. I actually am a really good knitter but I have not lifted a pair of needles in so long that I don't ever consider it when gift hunting.
I am knitting a pale blue and white striped jumper, matching hat and the cutest little matching Teddy. I am really enjoying the experience but due to a timescale I am having to make myself sit down and just knit. So my housework and blogging are suffering a bit.
Is anyone waiting with baited breath on my weekly weigh-in's ?? Because I really blew my diet over the Easter break and instead of taking wieght off I actually put it on. I have a load of workout equipment which I was given for nothing years ago, so yesterday The Foxx and I went down to the Garage and set up a circuit with our equipment, some hand weights a workout mat and of course some exercise music. So today in between knitting, housework, dying my hair, seeing to MIL and not to forget shopping I am going to workout. We had a large whiteboard at the back of the Garage so it has been pulled out cleaned up and The Foxx put the name of our gym on it so we are now called Maureen's Curves, all are welcome to come and workout free of course. OK OK I know I kinda stole the Gym's name, but I won't tell them if you don't.
Our gym consists of a cross trainer, a step master, a thigh master and a bike. I will use each machine for 5 minutes and in between come onto the mat for some hand weights, star jumps and jogging on the spot. That should take around 40 minutes by which time I may need an Ambulance LOL
I bought myself a fancy Polar heart rate monitor watch, many years ago so it will let me know if I am reaching my cardio goals and calories burnt. wish me luck...
I have still got to make that post about my debts and other financial matters and I promise you it is coming...
