I know last week I showed you some of the meals I ate while out of town......so I am sure it is no surprise to you that I gained a bunch of weight (hence this weeks blog title)! I did not gain weight just last week, but slowly here and there for a while......However, first I will talk about knitting, then jump into food/diet/weight stuff.
I knitted on my secret project, and my skein of yarn is getting smaller....I am past the 50% mark:
I worked on the Wedding Shawl.....
I am really close to finishing this shawl......Yippee!!
and I worked on my socks (both heels done):
Again...the same three things....I hope to finish them soon so I can start showing you other stuff!
Darlene got me the cutest little knitting notions tin.....it has a pink and black sheep tape measure, and a wooden ball yarn needle gauge, and the top has a magnet to hold darning needles...it is just so cute!
Oh, and Linda and Tom Diak just HAD to come out with a new caramel color needle...this time I only bought one needle....I have like 10 interchangeable needle sets and I do not need more, but they keep coming out with the greatest colors ever!
I got size 5's
Now, I got size 5's because the needle is a little yellowish, and yellow is the 3rd color of the rainbow, but I forgot I had pink too....so for this purpose only, I am showing it in the size 6 slot, but in the future, It will be in the size 5 slot....I will figure it out eventually....LOL!
My Miss Babs Knitting Tour 2017 Package arrived! We are going to The Moon.....here is the pattern.
Well, that is all the knitting I have.....so on to my food/weight/diet problems....the fact that I love food is probably my biggest problem, but when I came to work on Monday, I was complaining to Darlene about how much weight I gained (this just after she bought me a nutritious lunch of a corn dog).
but I did not do anything about it right away, because I went home and made deer sausage with fried potatoes...okay, the deer sausage is not bad, but those fried potatoes.....not the healthiest thing on the planet!
and then by Wednesday I thought.....I HAVE GOT TO EAT BETTER......so I went grocery shopping (Okay, I picked up my prepaid groceries from Walmart Grocery Pick up) and got Chicken Breasts, Steamed Veggies and Brown Rice with Quinoa....this will be what I eat a lot of for the next few weeks!
I know in the past I showed you all those Hello Fresh Means, and I did really good with the Hello Fresh Boxes, but they got a little pricey and not all of them were per say "Healthy".
Anyway, here was day one.....last Thursday!
It was not as bad as I thought.....but let's see how long it lasts.....
On top of that.....Paige has been having some stomach problems so she is trying a Gluten Free diet...and she is moving in with me in less than a month, so I may have to do a little gluten free stuff (Yikes)!!
Well, that is all I have.....I hope you all have a fabulous week
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
