Three things I am NOT doing.
- Knitting. This is really, really hard, but I know that letting those thumbs rest for awhile (weeks? months? ::sob::) is the best thing I can do for myself.
- Eating. Well, I am eating, but not as much nor as often as I used to. Kat and I signed up for Weight Watchers last spring, and I am having some success. Twelve pounds so far — it’s a really, really slow game. What helps me is that I am doing the online version and I find it kinda fun to log in my food every day. Nerdy, geeky, sure, but it’s working. It took me four or five months to adjust my portion size (I’m a slow learner), but so far, so good.
- Traveling. Having covered a lot of miles in the past six weeks, I am happily staying at home as much as possible. Smokey is planning to visit his brother in Chicago sometime soon, and I turned down the opportunity to come along. (It helped that I had seen Brother a few weeks ago at the tail end of my long road trip, plus the thought of all those hours in the car without being able to knit sounded like torture.)
