This fitness challenge is getting DURTY. Just kidding, but I do have a few thoughts on the word ‘sweat.’
1. I’m obsessed with my new work out clothes that wick the sweat from muh baadee.
2. I am really loving the Argus app – it combines pedometer/water calculator/weight manager/activity log/social competition. Just ask Lois she is getting fierce with the daily step competition.
3. Running – last weekend I set a new best (in the last five years) of 2 consecutive 8:30 minute miles. I ran between 6.5-9 and when it was over I was sweating and felt the strong urge to spew all over the gym. I, however, refrained because I like Planet Fitness and do not need to be kicked out for “jillian michaels-ing’ myself. YOU CAN GET OFF THIS TREADMILL WHEN YOU PUKE, PASS OUT OR DIE!!!
….of the week…. get your head out of the gutter! Geesh! 😉
So the start of this week was WILD. But a fun wild, not an unplanned for wild. I ended up getting my new and awesome jacket in from Black Salt. If you haven’t looked at their store/site yet, please do they are awesome. You will want many shoes/accessories/clothes.
Then I finished all the Halloween cards from Sunday. Just when I thought I got rid of all the glitter under my nails…. Look forward to that when you open them lovely friends and family. MWAHAHAHAHAHA.
Work has been super busy as we have department training. I have broken up my day by taking shameless selfies – you know how I roll.
Then last night I got to see Orange Goblin again. I saw them back in 2011 or maybe it was 2012 I can’t remember, I’ve been ‘metal – posing’ for so long now I can’t remember. I went alone and HAD A BLAST. Which is great because I have a few more concerts (Red Fang/Pentagram/Queens of the Stone Age/The Kills) to attend solo this fall/winter. Anyways- Orange Goblin are awesome guys in an even more awesome band. Here are some pictures from the show and if you’d like have a listen to the video below. They are doomy-metaly and from the UK (sigh).
This video is great – just make it through the intro. Be a metal poser and power through till the music starts.
Another craft update! I finished the Chevron Pop Cowl. I’m not sure if it’s the colors or what, but I feel ‘meh’ about it. I wish the yarn was a little more structured as well, so I’ll try that with the next one I make because I loved the pattern it was so simple and fun to knit. I’m wearing it today to work. I would say that would tell me what people thought, but my co-workers are not really observant about this kind of thing.
Last night after I finished the Chevron Cowl, I took Mister Lee out and saw that I had several goodies arrive! First, I got a Starbucks Gold Card – which is long overdue, but I only started registering my gift cards a few months ago! (D’oh!) Second, I received a BUNCH of patterns I ordered on Thursday from McCall’s because they had a $2.99 pattern sale last week. (I HAD TO HAVE THEM!) Third, I ordered the most adorable ‘cut and sew’ witch named Winnie from Ebay. I’m excited to put her together – I love little cut and sew panels they are my favorite – check out a bunch here on Etsy. I laid all the flare out to get a picture and of course my Baby Boris got right in the shot – how cute! He’s like “MOM! I’m new and fun too!” I have noticed I’ve had to spend extra time loving on each of them, because they let me know when I’ve been crafting ‘too much’ for them.
I have a few other small sewing projects I’m going to do this week that I am excited for. I need a few hours away from knitting just to re-charge. I still need to finish the sock portion of my baby moc-soc set that I have in progress. I just needed to step away from that little project though. It’s really small and I kept dropping 1 tiny stitch over and over and over. I hate when that happens!
Anyways – what are you all working on? Any holiday/season inspired crafts?
