Today is day 15 and I had a lapse. The free day went really well and things were going great the day after the free day when all of a sudden, I found myself eating ice cream and then cookies. I cannot tell you the devastation I felt at having to come here and say I fell off the horse after a really good and successful two weeks.
But then help arrived in and unexpected place. I logged onto Facebook and there was a status update from the adorable Miss Ruth. Who was saying she was minding her own nutritional business when she got thrown off her horse by some chicken wings that caught her nose. I knew at that moment it was OK for me to admit I had what was a temporary lapse. In fact, being able to admit it is what made it temporary. I fell off that horse on Friday and yesterday that horse and I had a really good run. So I get to thank Miss Ruth for being an inspiration and a heroine to me and I get to go forward on my 180 day journey confident that I will make it to where I’m going.
On the knitting front – I completed another hat that I didn’t like when I first did it but now it’s growing on me. I still have the shawl/wrap on the hook and it is going to take a while. The reason it’s going to take a while is because I did change the pattern around but only to go up a hook size and it’s still a pretty small hook. I should have jumped it up a couple of hook size so I could whip right through it. As it is, it’s whipping me. But I am going to keep with it because I want to see it finished because I am doing the design a little differently than the pattern says – OK so that’s two things. Three, if you consider I changed the fabric but that’s it.
