I got may partner for the next flirty apron swap. I am so looking forward to this swap. This swap's theme is Valentine's Day and/or baking. I now have a reason to go out and buy new material, but I have to wait until Thursday when I get paid again. One goal/decision/resolution that I absolutely have to keep is no credit card use unless absolutely necessary. That means, I only go to stores when I have money bugeted and/or when I have to. So, no Joann's Fabric unless I can budget money for it. I am hoping that I can make something with maybe a yard of new fabric and use some of my stash. Now to pick out a pattern. the best part is my partner decided on letting me choose the style of apron so I get to be really creative if I wish. I can't wait, then it's on to quilts for my kids and my sister's soon to be new baby.
I entered a give away on citylifeeats.com for stevia. I wrote a blog about my love for stevia in my tea and am so happy to say that I won free stevia. For some reason, I had stopped using stevia in my tea and started to use honey. I really didn't like the switch so now I am back to stevia. I like honey, but only for certain things. I can't wait to try this new stevia.
I have gotten rid of dairy for my kids and now I need to completely get rid of it for me too! I am doing so much better, that is until tonight. I even had coffee which I drink with cream. That was a really bad decision, but as of right now, I am back to eating the way that I know I should be eating. I really need to work on losing weight. It really hit me tonight, just how much I need to lose weight. I am back on track as of right now! No more fun and games. It's not only important for how I look, but for how I feel and my health! I'm always fighting blood pressure issues and if I can't get my weight and my eating under control, I could be in some trouble! I don't have a ton to lose. If I lost even 15 pounds, it would be helpful, but in reality, I'd really like to lose more like 30 pounds. I guess for now, I'll focus on the 15, then I'll look to lose more.
I can't wait to start sewing and eating well!
