Quilters Accountability Report

Ackkk Its Wednesday... how did that happen?
So the recap - Januarys Goals:
1. Quilt 15 Quilts of Valor. This may be a little tougher than I first imagined - but the month still has time in it. Here are Two that I quilted this week. Both of them are Chunky Churndashes - from the Quilt of Valor Sew Along that we had this September.
Sew Along Posts
The Top one is made by my Mom, and I quilted it with an "Echoed Spine" pattern that I found in Suzanne Earleys Meandering Magic book I liked it, and it wasn't too extremely difficult.

The next one was made by Me - and I let the kids at schoolpick out a quilting pattern. They chose Double Hearts and Loops Panto.
It turned out very nice. They chose well.

#2 was to piece Bonnies mystery - I am still working on Clue 3. Oh well, I had hoped to move on, but I have about 1/3 left of the clue to do. I may have to give up sleep!
#3 Weekly Menus - oh baby yah! And it certainly helps when your mom calls and says I will make dinner for Saturday .... yep! I am liking this. I have food, I know what to cook - no one is starving yet.

#4 Exercise 20 minutes every work day.
Done. Thur:Yoga, Fri: Jillians 30 day shred level 2, Mon: Wii Fit, tues Jillian Level 1, Wed: Wii Fit ... and about the starving comment - no one else besides me is starving. How come when you exercise you get hungry???

I hope you all had a good week - and you can see more posts over at Bari's Blog

Ouch! You're throwing down a tough gauntlet, putting meal planning and exercise on there, too! I don't think I want to go THAT far!

You are brave tossing in the excerise.

Alycia, I so admire your meal planning and excercise commitment. I am still carrying the baby fat from having my kids....let's see, that was FIVE YEARS AGO! AACCCKKK!

I keep thinking next year, when they start school, I will start working out again... Can you hold me to that commitment? That isn't very far off - August....

You are my hero!

Yes, I do feel starved after working out... try doing a protien smoothie with berries right after your workout. Your body does need carbs when you've really worked it hard. And the good news is that if you eat the right stuff it actually does not get stored as fat... but be sure to do it within 1 hour of working out...

I also have committed myself to working out at a more intense level... I keep looking at the payoff... it will come, yes it will!
