Weight Loss Progress

I have some good news...I lost another 2.6 pounds according to the WW scales. Yeah me!!! I also went to the gym and did the treadmill for 30 minutes and then did Pilates for an hour. I never feel bad in Pilates but boy was I sore this morning!! When I weighed myself on my scale at home this morning it says I lost another pound, but I am posting the weight loss from the WW scale so that one will have to count next week.

I have been asking my friends for any of their Kaffe Fassett scraps. I need 2.5 x 5" pieces, so if any of you are feeling generous, send some KF lovin' my way would ya? I have a project in mind but just need some additional scraps. One of my friends gave me this fantastic pile yesterday.

Kaffe scraps
Pretty cool huh? Now never fear, if you see some you have too and you are sayin to yourself, "Darn it, she already has that one", I can always use more! Really, it's true!! I need a lot of scraps.

Also, I have told ya'all that I am having trouble sleeping, right? NO?? Well, I am and it really sucks! I am lucky if I get 4-5 hours of uninterrupted sleep a night. YAWN, JK... Anyway, I discovered a magic little helper that is natural. Melatonin! I take one about 1-2hours before bed and like magic I fall asleep and stay asleep. When I remember, dang it, now I need to work on that. Where was I going with this? Ah yes, so Sunday night I forgot to take it so I was tossing and turning so I just got up. I decided to work on my embroidery (to try to catch up to PTM). Here is what I got done.

I just have a bit more of the basket, the arm and the ground and this one will be done! Course, I went to bed around 2am and was up at 6am for work. The weird thing about this no sleep thing is that I really don't feel tired all day. You would think will all this exercising I would sleep better but alas it is not helping!

Tonight I go back to the POKE-N-STAB group (the church ladies, CL's for short). Part of me is looking forward to it and part of me is not. After the month long break I realize I don't miss it as much as I thought I would. Now I need to pray about this and see if God is calling me in another direction. All signs are pointing that way. Do you believe thing happen for a reason? I do and so far several things have been pointing me away from that group. We will be going over their surveys tonight and we will see how that goes. I have some prior comittments as far as quilts promised that need to be completed so I am there at least until the summer.

Thanks for stopping by and peeking in at my life!!

Congrats on more weight loss! I can hardly wait to see what you're doing with Kaffe. I'm piecing my Kaffe top together - hopefully it will be fully pieced today. I'll look for some scraps for you - I think I used all my scraps in my quilt because I needed 2 1/2 inches too.

Great job on the loss!

You just have more energy from being so active. I'm the same way and really don't sleep a lot any more. I just make sure to relax and rest when I'm at home.

sunlight - unfiltered sunlight during the day (especially during the winter months) - it works for babies to sleep through the night AND it works for adults, too (it's the whole melatonin thing - which we are all lacking in the winter months on accounta the sun isn't up when we go to work and is already down when we get off - unless you are lucky enough to work in a room with natural light) - anywho, even 20 minutes can make a huge difference - so find a window with sun pouring through to sit in during your lunch break (it's free - and even if it doesn't work, it FEELS good)

sorry - i gots no Kaffe Fasset - scraps or yardage - but i will check the scrap bin at TQS the next time i go

you already know that there are no coincidences ... gotta follow your heart and your gut, little mama

my word verification is "famer" as in you are more famer than me - ha ha ha!

Congrats on the weight loss, Pam! I don't have any Kaffe fabric, not even scraps.
I'm having trouble sleeping too - it STINKS. Melatonin doesn't work for me, and now neither does sleeping pills. I don't sleep more than four hours even if I take a pill. But I do feel it the next day!
Love your bunny!

Congrats on the weight loss. I have trouble sleeping too--blaming it on menopause and hot flashes... exercising too late at night can interfere with sleep.

Good for you on the weight loss! I have trouble sleeping too but it's because I wake coughing or I wake because I am dreaming that I better find a bathroom! Lol! I will try Melatonin! Good idea! I love the little bunny stitchery!
