Treadmills or just working out in general

I'm not nor have I ever been the type of girl who likes working out, dieting, etc.  Betcha couldn't tell!  But since being here at Julie's house of rehab (ha ha!) I have been on the treadmill every day and I've started eating correctly.  I've lost four pounds and am sleeping better.  

But damn is the first two or three minutes on that machine challenging!!  This afternoon I just wanted to stop right away and eat a family sized bag of skittles, which I don't have :). After twenty minutes I am super glad that I didn't give up and quit!

Now I'm off to crochet some baby things and spend time with Julie!

First few days at Julie's

I am relaxing and being very well taken care of!  Julie is encouraging me to take care of me and is giving me little projects to bust my yarn stash!

I gave the cow I made for Joe to Julie's daughter Maddie.  It wasn't as hard to give up as I thought it would be.  I did remove the piece of my heart from inside of it, Julie is going to hold onto it for me until I can give it to someone worthy.  I love that Maddie loves mini Mooster II!

I've power walked on the treadmill every day and am eating better.  I've lost a lb since being here.  I'm eating a lot less calories than I had been in Ohio!!

For any crocheters following me...  I brought my stash, and have made a facial scrubby, a washcloth, and started my c2c afghan.  Julie gave me a job today for a baby hat for a coworker's freshly born granddaughter :)

That's all for today, I'm so thankful to Julie for this opportunity.  She is one of the best heroes in the world!
