Be the Tortoise
It seems odd to have the first weigh-in at the start of day three, rather than on day 7. I assume there is a good psychological reason for this, and is a good motivator to keep going. In two days, I'm down half a kilo. Happy with that. Only 47 point somethi...

Eating Better: Breakfasts
All of those so-called 'diet rules' I imposed on myself failed at one point or another. Because, as we all know, diets don't work.  No alcohol during the week? been having a cider most nights No white bread: that's all we seem to have in the house. No pasta...
All of those so-called 'diet rules' I imposed on myself failed at one point or another. Because, as we all know, diets don't work. No alcohol during the week? been having a cider most nights. No white bread: that's all we seem to have in the house. No pasta ... pasta salad for lunch on Saturday.

Anyone had a yarn drama like this?

Picked a pattern, assigned yarn to it and then realised that the yarn is the wrong weight.

I tend to do what Elspeth said, I get all mathematical with my swatch measurements and what the pattern calls for. Also worth checking out other projects with the weight yarn you've got to see what they did.

Personally I'm a fan of seeing what projects look and behave like in yarn different to what it was designed for.

Thursday to yesterday (Sunday) was a gluttonous affair. I did not count calories, I drank everything under the sun, ate the worst possible food and generally ignored this twelve week challenge. Thursday night - due to some scheduling conflicts, we ended up having a five minute dinner of latina ...

Survived
Friday was far more a struggle than I conveyed in my last post. On the inside, I felt like a three-year-old having an epic tantrum. Fighting my impulses, controlling them, saying no to myself. It was far from easy to get through. But I did, and now: I can d...
Even today, when I am being tortured by horrid allergies, sinus pain and a whopping headache, I don't feel like I've been defeated. Longer term followers of my blog would know I'd be wailing at this point about how unfair life is and that the universe is out to get me.
