I finished up a quick table runner using some of the new Island Batik fabrics I received. I also haven’t posted about my Fitbit in a while so I have a update.
When I received the new fall batiks there was a little bundle of green strips that were about 2 inches wide by 10 inches long. I decided to pull them out and take a peek and decided to just sew them together in one long strip.
To make this a fast and easy project I also cut out a piece of backing about 12 inches wide by the width of the fabric and a piece of batting. Then I just did a quilt as you go style runner. I know I did a tutorial on this but…….I can’t find it. In fact my blog really could use some updating!
Since I didn’t have enough fabric for the binding I decided to zig-zag the edges and add some cotton cluny lace. I love seeing all the beautiful batiks!
I have a little bit left over and I will probably make a bath runner with them.
I thought this table runner might look good under the television so I turned on my new Leslie Sansone: Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan to the Green Mile. This is my newest workout by Leslie and it is fun.
I want all of her DVDs and I also bought Leslie Sansone: Walk to the HITS Party Songs thinking that you were exercising to HIT songs…..well you are but the HIT means High Intensity Training. I’ve only done it a couple times and it is neat. I’ll keep working on it.
Are you wondering when I’m going to talk about my Fitbit? Well I wear it constantly and it is a wonderful motivator. I have learned that if I don’t do a workout or a walk I average a little less than 1,000 steps a day. The goal is 10,000 steps so…….I need to workout. I really, really don’t like sweating but….every morning I’ve been doing that. It is too hot outside for walking and the workout dvds work your arms and all muscles.
I feel great but I haven’t taken off much weight. I have lost about 8 pounds and I feel more toned but I really, really doubt if I’ll ever have a 20 year old body again…LOL. I had Bob take a photo the other day of me exercising, I wasn’t going to put it up but what the heck….it is me.
I have been working out every day for 2 1/2 months, I’m still eating out, enjoying a glass of wine……
I am more conscious of what I am eating, I would like to have the weight come off faster but I have no desire to go on a crash diet I won’t stick with.
