I got lots of knitting done while at my folks and visiting.
The back of my sweater is now done and I got started on the front and have about 6 inches or so of that done so far so it’s moving right along. And when you use the right measurements, it seems to be turning out pretty true to the row count versus inches measurements.
I think this afternoon will be spent just knitting now that the groceries are put away – tho I may do some cooking or chopping/cleaning of veggies etc. so I have some stuff ready for lunch this coming week.
The amazing thing – tho I ate many great things while on vacation, along with many healthy things, I got on the scale when I got back home and miraculously, after a 1 pound gain last week (which I knew would happen because of what I was eating), this week I lost 3.2 pounds — I’m closing in on the 50 pounds lost mark. I was hoping not to have gained more than 1 or 2 and never expected to actually lose this week so I was amazed. But some of the meals were weight watchers recipes my mom and sister made – two of which I had seen on Weight Watchers but since they make more than one person portions, I didn’t want to make a pan of it and then find out I hated it so I hadn’t gotten around to them. Now I know they are good so I’ll make them myself – like a tasty Asian inspired chicken lettuce wrap and a spaghetti squash whole wheat pasta bake dish that was also very good and a broccoli/cauliflower salad with a bit of citrus in the dressing that gives it a great taste. Course the restaurant my sister told us to go to to have the best burgers and fries in the city — that was also delicious and I’ll have to be going back again there next time I got to visit! 🙂
This talk of food has made me hungry and so time to give some lunch!
