Face!

So apparently Ty sprayed me with one of his atomic sneezes and he's pretty sick (sick enough I almost called in the paramedics - his lips went completely blue during one of his coughing fits). And that means, you guessed it, I'm sick too.

Could I just have a new face? Mine hurts. And that is after all the homeopathic doctoring. I can't imagine how lousy I'd feel without it. On the upside, my throat is so raw I don't want to eat a thing and that's half the battle.

Speaking of battles, I've given up soda - for the bajillionth time. At least until Christmas. Some friends and I have made a goal to lose 20 pounds by December 25th. I think it's a reasonable, obtainable goal. Anyone else want to join in?

I'll be implementing my Three Bites rule again. You know instead of the Entire Bag/Plate/Pan rule.

This weekend I've been watching and listening to Conference while working on this service project our quilt group is doing. Everyone sewed blocks, someone sewed them together, then quilted it and I put the binding on. It's for Quilts of Valor which donates quilts to soldiers who've been injured. I can't think of a better way for me to get back into quilting. How was your weekend?

Alisha - there's no rules, just exercise some everyday, eat healthy, make good habits. But for me, I have to cut out the sugar or have no more than 3 bites of it.

Oooh, sorry you've got this. I hear it's a nasty one. I hope we don't get it (we've already has one full round through the family starting on the 3rd day after school started).

I won't get tired of Ellie-isms. The girl is a wonder, and you transcribe them all so well.

Boo to being sick.

What's the 3 bites rule? intrigued.......

Emma J said...

Being sick - no fun. Hope you whomp it quick and get back on top.

I like your 3 bites rule. I'm one week in on getting my life-habits back on course. My sisters, mom and I are emailing a brief form-letter each night reporting in on our individual goals which are teeny tiny(like AM prayers, no refined nothin', green leafy, fast from 1-5pm, go to bed by 10, move that body, wordcount) and limited to 3 in 3 areas.

It's helping.

I actually started doing the 20 pounds by Christmas thing on my own in September. 8 pounds down so far...I need to step it up.

Hope the plague passes quickly!

I love the quilt, so beautiful. And I would like to be in on the 20 lb. thing. But can I do just 15? Thanks. Get well soon!

Mrs. Organic said...

Loralee - Yes! Join us.

I like the idea of that 3 bite rule. Gotta have some serious self control, though.

I won't be losing any weight by December, but maybe I can try to join you in a way--I'll try not to GAIN more than 20 lbs by Dec 25th, how's that?!
