Well I still haven't been really doing any knitting, but I have been reading about knitting! That counts for something right? When I put in my book requests at my local library the other week I decided to check this one out, The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs. I have to say that I am truly loving it. I am loving it so much that I am almost done with it. It is a good read and it is more than about knitting. I saw Julia Roberts on Oprah Winfrey a few months back and she is suppose to be starring in the movie. I know the movies aren't usually as good as the book, but I would definitely go see this one with my girlfriends.
Sunday I competed in my first road race of the year. It was only a four miler, but it definitely felt good to get back into the competitive racing with all the other runner fanatics in New York. I am proud of myself for completing the four miles in a little over 42 minutes. I have been trying to get myself back into the running form I use to be in and racing again will definitely assist in my efforts.
I'm also doing really well with the Weight Watchers online. I have been following the points system for 3 weeks now and have lost a total of 8 pounds. Woo Hoo! I would highly recommend Weight Watchers to anyone who struggles with trying to eat healthy. I always knew what I needed to do for exercising but the eating right was always my issue. Now with the help of the points plan, I am eating so much better and feel so much better.
I did mention earlier that I haven't been really knitting. Well last night I made it a point to sit down with my Juno Regina Wrap. Considering this is a lace project, it is slow going. I can only work on it when I am totally alone and can concentrate. I did manage to complete 8 rows of it before I got too tired. When it progresses a little more I'll post an updated picture.
