So I am back in action. What have I been doing?
Well, trying to get the book done. I really need to spend a day just working on the book without interruption, but I am also really wanting family life back.
By that I mean that I have been working fulltime, commuting three days a week, telecommuting 2 days. On Saturdays, I get ready to dye and shoot on Sunday morning. It does not leave a lot of time for family and knitting and whatever else a working mom of two needs to do. Including exercise.
I have now managed to put on 20 pounds (or damn close to it) in the 7 months on new yob. Vacation did not help to be sure. It's to the point where I am embarassed to go to work, because I look awful in my clothes and have not been able to find some new pants say.
I cleaned my closet out ruthlessly last weekend, and have fabric out to sew, but little time to do so.
The worst part is knowing that I need to lose the weight, not because of the way I look so much (I am beyond thinking I will be a skinny minnie) but because I feel slow and my clothes don't fit right (and I know from experience, that buying new ones won't help) and my cholesterol is up a bit.
