What a Difference a Day Makes

So, last night I fixed a Weight Watchers Tamale Casserole for dinner - I loaded up on the veggies. Yummy. While that was in the oven baking - I did a 25 minute weight workout. This morning - After having cottage cheese and cantaloupe for breakfast, I worked on the pink dress. Most of the godets are now successfully installed in their seams! But before that - I plugged in a 20 minute ab routine. Killer! For lunch - salad with ff feta, avocado, & artichokes. Plus a banana. Dinner tonight will either be spaghetti (if JB feels up to cooking) or fish, baked butternut squash & spinach salad. I also plan on logging some miles on the treadmill with a good book - slow and steady. I found out I can walk at a steady pace of 3.4MPH and read at the same time. I keep the incline up around 4.5. Also - if there's time before sewing with House, I might to try to get a little dog walk in. Claire - do you have a pedometer? I would like to issue a daily challenge to get 10,000 steps in, beginning June 1 - you game? Oh, and I know this is a sewing blog - I just need to post weight management issue for a bit and get back on track. Unfortunately - as is the way of life, the current weight management issues affect my ability to sew or even want to. I'll try not to let it take over, though.


  1. Oh my gosh! Your energy level today was through the roof! Great job! :)

  2. No, I don't have a pedometer, but I can get one. I'm game. :) How much is 10,000 steps a day? I am sure I am doing nearly that with walking a half mile to and from the bus every day. Plus, I can get out at lunch and walk a few blocks as well.

    I seem to recall your masthead says you also discuss weight management issues here too, so don't apologize. Besides, it's YOUR blog. You can do what you want on it. That's the beauty of them, right? hee hee.

    After hearing your menu, I'm hungry. I think I'll pull out my WW books and stuff too.


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
