Well, it's Thursday Jan 4 here in Orlando and it's supposed to be 81 degrees today...tomorrow 84...YUCK! They say it's El Nino or Nina, I really don't know the difference, all I know is that it is warm and wet. I just want it to be cooler...It is January. Of course, the folks that are down here vacationing from the cold parts of the country just love it. Enough complaining this morning :) One of my New Year's goals was to drop the 15 pounds I have put on in the last year. I did South Beach about 3 years ago and it was just wonderful. Lost 25 pounds, felt great, kept it off and then in the last year I don't know what happened, I really do know, I started increasing portions and eating bad stuff when I was hungry. So I started back on South Beach on Tuesday, am eating good food again and like magic I've lost 3-1/2 pounds. HMMM! guess the secret is just eat good stuff and not a ton of anything. I'm feeling good and not deprived so that's a very good thing. Andy is doing it with me so that really helps. We've also committed to walking at least 4 days a week...it's on the calendar...so you know me, if it's on the calendar it gets done. I had a great day yesterday...I was off from the shop and stayed home almost all day, only had to run to the bank and the post office. I did some laundry, and a little cleaning and then just sewed the rest of the day. I felt like I was in heaven. I finished the BRIGHT snowman quilt for Hampton...it is so cute. I'll post a picture after the binding is on. I also worked on the Spa Day project for the shop and did little bits for me. It was a great day! You just can't beat a day in the sewing room.
