February 10th, 2015 – Just Some Stuff

Its been a while since I’ve shared any photos, but I’ve got a few for you today. This was our girls nosing around the yard this afternoon while I tried to get photos of my new slippers I knitted. Sashi had a bit of a belly ache and was intent on finding just the right bit of greenery to soothe her stomach. Lucy was just ambling around behind her as if she thought Sashi might suddenly do something interesting. Sashi did not, and I can only imagine that Lucy was disappointed.



Here’s a quick pic of both my new monsters pants I made Sunday and my slippers I finished knitting yesterday. For more photos of the slippers, just click on through to here. There are I think four photos in the blog post there. While you’re there you can also see all the cool stuff I’ve got up for sale- there are over 250 items and I am always adding more!

sidesYeah, my yarn I used looks like some sort of neon vomit accident but its nice and soft on my feet and it knitted up so quickly! I’m totally not sure what made me buy that yarn in the first place but I came home with 14 ounces of it and I still have 8 ounces left. Eek!

Tracking was good the first half of last week, but halfway through I stopped. I’m starting off good with tracking this week so far, and hopefully I will continue it through the rest of the week. I’m seeing some foods I need to stay away from if I want to stay even reasonably on target, and quesadillas are one of them. 2 ounces of cheese, and two tortillas are 12 freaking points! Holy crap! I can’t even get my mind around that bit or ridiculousness! I posted the food diaries from Sunday and Monday a few minutes ago and I feel like yesterday was just all over the place. I had a quesadilla for lunch and if I had not had that, I would have finished the day perfectly on target but nope- instead I was way over my goal at the end of the day, and the beer I had at pool and the frozen yogurt afterwards did not help.

I’m doing better at pool now and I am attributing it to two things- one my game is getting better because I’ve been playing longer. But even more than that I am attributing my continued improvement to the fact I’m now completely off of the Wellbutrin and all its side effects have had time to dissipate. My hands are steadier and I’m sleeping better as well. I’m tired a lot more now that I’m no longer taking it, but my sadly diminished sex drive seems to be back and overall I feel a lot better being off of it. Anyway, I am up to 19 wins for this season at pool, and my goal for this season was to win at least 18 games. My first season I won 6 games, my second season I won 12, and if we play next season I will be shooting for 24 wins. We get $2 back per win at the end of the season so right now I’m getting $38 back,¬†which is nice.
