Well much like my Internet Buddy, I seem to have lost the desire to blog lately. It seems that as soon as I get on the computer, all the ideas I've had throughout the day have disappeared. My mind has gone blank (not that that's anything new...) So I just end up going on Ravelry for a bit.
And as we all know, Ravelry is a time warp. You can be on there for only five minutes and all of a sudden, 2 hours have passed, the children are still up and still fighting. The tea pots remain unwashed - the tea often hasn't even been cooked - and all the jobs you needed to do are still not done. Just because you were looking what to knit next, what new yarns have crept on and what on earth could you do with that last 3 metres of yarn. Ravelry. Pah. It is a wicked place in deed.
It is weigh day today and I have lost another pound (didn't lose anything last week). It is now becoming very difficult, I seem to have been dieting forever and all I want to eat is a big fat slice of chocolate cake. I've had enough cottage cheese to last a lifetime, more vegetable soup than is humanly good for a girl and enough of anything that isn't drenched in butter, chocolate or cream. I keep trying to convince myself that I've not got far to go, that my final 6lbs that I want to lose can easily be gone by Christmas. But it's not easy is it?
Must try harder. Must not crave badness. Will enjoy eating diety foods. Will delight in the pleasures of fat free fromage frais, natural yoghurt, sugar free jelly and ryvitas.
Maybe next time the weather is good, I'll gather together all the raffle prizes and take some pictures. That might give me the kick up the backside I need.
