I haven't blogged since my birthday in August when I completed my 100 Day Personal Challenge. Things went crazy. I had to finish getting the house back in order after getting new carpet. I had to finish a sample kilt for a band to see if they would want me to be their kiltmaker. Plus I am starting a custom memory quilt business.
I did finish the kilt and the band has said they want me to be their kiltmaker. Also, when I was at the Longs Peak Highland Games I found out that there was now a big need for a kiltmaker in my area. There used to be two, but one passed away last year and the other is retiring. So things might get interesting.
I will be jumpstarting my quilt business this Saturday at a small craft fair. I was just going to show samples, but the organizers wanted me to have some for sale. So, I got some bumper pads at a thrift store and am in the process of making four baby quilts. My business is basically taking people's clothes and making quilts that are uniquely designed to represent the person.
I lost focus on losing weight. I was so tired I stopped getting up earlier to do 30 minutes on the elliptical. Therefore I ended up gaining what I had lost on my previous challenge
I am glad to have the 5% Fall Challenge to get me started back. And then looking at the calendar - there are 100 more days until the end of the year. So, I am going to do another personal 100 Day Challenge. My big goal is to get into the 220's by Dec 31st.
I talked with my personal trainer last week. He gave me a strict eating plan and will be working with me. Plus, this Friday I have a telephone interview with a wellness coach from my insurance plan.
It is amazing how easy it is to be derailed. But I'm ready to get back on track! It is time to get back into a good eating & exercise routine. I also want to finally finish Made to Crave.
