Slow Sewing

or "Slow Going..." depending on your perspective.

I'm still behind on the National Capital Cat Show orders, which is making me nothing short of crazy. Last night I spent the evening cutting and creating these accessories for a Sadie bag I hope to get completed this weekend. The order is a big one and includes a Mavis bag, as well. I'll be grateful to get both of those bags complete and in the mail by Tuesday next week, when they're promised.

Thank you all for your encouragement yesterday. I'm better. I have Red Hat's tonight, which means another dinner out, and I'll just have to accept that I can't expect to lose much when I have such events. I'm not eliminating the few occasions I go out to eat, because, let's face it, that's my lifestyle! I either make the food plan work with the lifestyle or give it all up, because I'm quite happy with my life!
Now, I did try too hard in the exercise category. It's not that my heart won't handle a 10 minute walk, because it does, just fine. But my back is overstressed again from trying two of those short walks in less than 24 hours. TWO TEN MINUTE WALKS?

I miss the days (what? maybe four years ago?) of 45 minutes on the treadmill at 3.8 miles an hour (remember, I have short legs, so that's almost a trot). Don't know if I'll ever see that again, but my PT says I fact, sweet young thing that she is? She's trying to convince me that I'll have "ABS of STEEL" just by doing these few back strengthening exercises!!

Ah youth. I should be so lucky!

Keep on trucking. The 10 minute walks will get easier.

Hey, if Margene can walk, YOU can walk. Hang in there!

Hooray for abs of steel! You can do it! :) And you're absolutely right -- your life MUST have room for your time with your friends -- if it ain't realistic, it won't last. :)

It can and WILL happen! When I was in vigorous PT for back issues, doing lots of those cobra stretches, I suddenly surprised myself by being able to do push ups. That I can't anymore tells me I sure need to get back to it. You are inspiring me.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
