OMG an Update!

Yes, I know it’s been awhile since I posted.  I didn’t mean to go this long, but life has this terrifying way of taking precidence.

Since my last update, I managed to finish the March Socks (by April 9th…they took awhile) and I started and finished the April socks.  Pictures will be forthcoming!

I’m back to working on the Brandywine shawl for a little bit & trying to figure out what I want to do with the socks I was designing for the husbeast.  I’m starting to second-guess myself.

On the weight loss front…things have been dismal.  I know that my body works best on a low-carbohydrate or “real foods” diet…the problem is that we get lazy really easily.  This past month has been a real effort in trying to do such grown-up things as clean the house, do the laundry, and avoid eating fast food.  I could gladly eat Strawberry Cheesequake blizzards every night, but that kind of stupidity tends to contribute to weight gain, sore joints, and a general inability to function.

I’m not at liberty to really discuss what-all has been going on, but we got news from a family member near the beginning of the month that’s kinda given us a knock upside the head(s) as to how irresponsible our habits have become. I know that in the past 3 or 4 months, I’ve gone from periods of high hyperorganized activity to what I can only describe as apathetic depression. It hasn’t been easy to work through, particularly when your significant other is prone to the exact same kind of mood swings.  We haven’t always been on the same wavelength at the same time.

So I’ve restarted eating properly, and I really want to stick to it this time.  I’m taking it day by day.  I hit my start weight again this past weekend and it shocked me back into action.  I’m now back down about 5 lbs of water weight, and it feels good to not have it hanging around. In the meantime, I’m trying to get the house in order so that we feel happier.  Your surroundings really DO make a difference!

Hopefully there will be a pod/video/cast soon.  I haven’t forgotten or faded, just been trying to take some time to work through Real Life while it’s happening.
