Resolutions-Stale Mate Week

Unfortunately this last week has been a not so great week when it comes to all, yes ALL of my resolutions.
  • I sporadically worked on some quilt pieces and only got one block done.
  • The detoxing and weight loss started out great, but these last couple days it seems to be dying a slow and painful death.
  • Scripture study, what is that? Yes, unfortunately I don't think I will be making my goal date with that one.
  • And FHE did not happen this week either.
Hopefully I can pick myself up, dust myself off, and move forward.

Detox Weekend about to Begin

Tomorrow starts a long weekend of detoxing. Hopefully I will be able to get all the sugar out of my system and be able to actively start my journey down the weightloss road.

As part of this project I have gotten rid of all my chocolate :( , candy, and any type of 'bad' snack. Of course I ate them instead of just throwing them out. The last couple days I have started drinking water instead of Diet Coke and I hope to be able to drink the necessary 64 oz per day amount.

Here comes the huge mood swings!

New Years Resolutions

I just realized that I did not post my New Years Resolutions, maybe that would be a good thing then noone will know if I fail to complete them. Of course I have already started blogging what needed to be done with the quilting projects, so I better get the rest of them listed then I can more accountable.
  1. Get weight down to 180 by August.
  2. Work on quilt projects and finish them.
  3. Finish reading the Book of Mormon by Feb 14th.
  4. Obtain a Job with management opportunities.
I read somewhere that you need to be positive while listing your goals, basically don't say how much weight you need to lose. If you say that you need to lose say 40 or 50 pounds that seems a lot of weight - negative, but if you state the weight that you want to get down to it does not seem so bad - positive.

Wish me Luck!

List of Quilts to Finish or Do

Here is my list of quilting projects that need to be done:

'Stairway to Kitty Heaven' for T. - need to finish the applique', then get a backer, quilt and bind.
Wedding Quilt for E. - The top is finished, I just need to find matching material for the back, quilt and bind.
Wedding Quilt for K. - I need to find a pattern and get it going.
Wedding Quilt for B. - Another I need to get a pattern and start.
Wedding Quilt for A. - I need to find a pattern and start.
Wedding Quilt for P. - I need to find a pattern and start.
Wedding Quilt for N. - These weddings are happening faster than I can keep up (as you can tell I'm not keeping up).

These are listed in order of what needs to be done. Of course some will probably sneak in between projects as needed. And some the older ones are 4 almost 5 years in the making. I have to catch up, I'm going to catch up!
As each quilt progresses I will post pictures showing how they look.
Wish me luck!
