Day 497/ Day 24 of 100/ Poncho
Saturday, May 21, 2016
Lazy Saturday. I spent most of the last part of the night fighting DH for the covers, I finally just gave up and let him have them and tried to sleep, but it was cold. So I got up and decided to take a nap later today. It was nice to take a nap, but it was fitful and I stayed in bed too long. Right now I'm drinking coffee and trying to fully wake up so I can go get on the treadmill. Does that seem silly? Taking a nap and then getting on the treadmill?
Okay, question for you... What do you do when you get a sweet tooth? I have a rather persistent one, I'm craving pastry, with frosting. I want it so much that I can almost taste it. I tried eating a date, which did not help. It's driving me crazy. I'm trying to do a 28 day sugar detox and this is maddening. I know it just takes a while to get the sugar out of my system and then the cravings will go away, but in the meanwhile I'm eating more than I should because of this insistent pastry craving. I'm trying though and that is something.
I think I'm going to make today a long day on the treadmill. That will be two hours equal to 5 miles if I keep up a good pace. I have not gotten up the nerve to run on it yet. I think I'm afraid of hurting my knees... and of falling off the treadmill. I'll give it a try, just to see if I can. I see on Extreme Weight Loss people that are much bigger than I running (or at least jogging), so why not give it a try?
I'm starting a new project, a crochet poncho for youngest DD. If I do good with it I'll make one for my other DD and one for myself! It's taking a while, but it's going to be cute. She picked a white one with purple trim. So the last few rounds will be with this three tone purple and then the tassels will be white. I'll post pictures when I finish it. I should have made the first few rounds with purple, but I had already gotten three rounds in before I decided that, and I was not about to undo all that work! I'm 6 rounds in now and it's going to take a bit to get it done, this is a thinner yarn and smaller crochet hook, so it will take time. But it is nice to have another project going.
