On one front, things are going pretty well. I’ve been a little slow when it came to the knitting lately, but it’s really picked up and now I’m almost finished with the Never Ending Shawl.
At this point, this past Wednesday night, I had 13 repeats remaining on the border. After working on it some more last night, I am down to 9. 9 repeats of 16 rows, a quick graft together of live stitches and that beast will be ready for blocking. That’s less than 7 hours. I can’t wait. So, I’ll get some more repeats in tonight and hopefully, have it blocking by tomorrow evening. Yay woo!
As for The Blerch
That battle was not going so well for me. It is so easy to give in and not exercise, to snack (though knitting is definitely good at preventing snacking), things like that. So I’m taking a note from good old Bugs:
I am now waging a full on war. Battles and skirmishes are one thing, but if I’m going to persevere, this conflict has got to be upgraded to war. I will not lose. This is truly a life and death situation. It is for my health and if I don’t take it seriously, why should The Blerch? The first step in this all out war, is to get my life organized and make sure I set aside time for all of the things I both need and want to do during the week. That means getting up a little earlier in the morning, putting aside the *gasp* knitting, drawing, writing, and personal reading in the evenings to do what I have to so that I can beat this. While I have lost 2 pounds in the last 2 weeks, I can and will do better. Here’s to beating The Blerch. I’m going to take that bitch down.
