A list of updates

This past weekend, I was knitting on Mike's black scarf, and thought it might be nice to update people on various RELAXING projects that I'm working on (no, the filing in the library doesn't count). I don't have photos yet, but to whet your appetite, here is a list of items I will be updating you on this week:

  • The hat... err, blanket
  • First Harry Potter scarf for donation next Christmas
  • Mike's black scarf
  • Fishtank rebuilding (that's right, I'm giving up on the live plants and natural look. Last night, we bought a dinosaur/cartoony reef background, blue and pink plastic plants, and a little figurine that says, "No fishing." Kitch FTW!)
  • WoW characters
  • Passing my epee test
  • Working out

I guess I can do those last two now, since they're not exactly photogenic... :) In some ways, they're related, as I've been studying the manual while I'm at the gym. I'm hoping to retake the test this weekend at the tournament, if the instructor is there. I may be presiding for three time blocks, but it shouldn't take long to do 30 multiple choice questions! As for the gym, I have been going the 2-3 times a week that I said I would. I've graduated from "reps of 10" to "reps of 12," and am now doing level 4 instead of level 3 on the sitting bike for my cardio. I need to talk to my assigned trainer about new stretches, because while I can do most of them, there's some I just can't, and some that really aren't reaching the muscles the poster says they should be reaching. And I weighed the same this past Saturday. *shrug* Some weight loss progress would be nice, but I'll be patient. I don't really have much of a choice.

Updates on the rest are forthcoming! Aquarium first, probably, since that's what I'm doing when I get home today!

I'd also like to welcome my brother-in-law to the world of blogging! His first post is wonderful, so you all need to go read it right away!



After a month of working out at Curves, I weighed more than I did when I started. They said I probably lost fat, but gained muscle, which is heavier. Maybe that's the case with you, too.

Can't wait to see all your knitting projects!
