My annual physical was uneventful except for learning one thing new--apparently I'm an inch shorter (want to verify this when I get home)--and getting confirmation of something I was in denial about--I've put on weight. People at work call it the Simcoe Hall Spread and while I knew it was happening--too many lunch meetings, crappy catered food all over the place, not enough moving around--I figured it wasn't that bad.
I need to lose 10-15 lbs. Shit. It was good to hear it from someone else because I didn't really want to hear my own inner voice noticing that all my clothes were too tight.
I had started making some dietary changes this summer; no more beloved Coke every lunch (replaced it with almost palatable Coke Zero), trying to have less beer, less eating out for lunch etc. and I am riding my bike to work. But it's not enough. Time to get back into a gym. Well, after Craig is back from his work trip. No sense joining today only to take 5 weeks off because I have no childcare. I will start back at the office lunch time yoga tomorrow and try *really* hard to keep it up (though I have a lot of lunch time workshops to attend which makes it difficult).
The better news was that all the envelopes were stuffed by the time I got into work today. I have a fabulous team here and they spared me that job. And we ordered in Thai food for lunch (I had more mango salad than pad thai noodles since I was still feeling the sting of the scale).
But enough about that...let's look in my knitting bag instead.
Here's my film festival sock. It's the project I knit in lines, before movies start, during the Director Q&A's etc. My first movie is tomorrow night!
I got a bit of a head start on it during Xander's soccer game. The yarn is one of the Kaffe Fasset Regia colours.
And here's my eye of partridge heel--very nifty.
And Baby Cables. So pretty. I'm just 20 rows in and I remember how much I love the Zara yarn (it's so squooshy).
No Vino photos yet. I need to be wearing some pants and it's too damned hot to wear a sweater coat. I'm not complaining about the heat (it's like we're getting more summer!) just the idea of being wrapped in wool outside in this weather.
