Typing with sore arms

To continue with my attempts at eating, feeling and being healthier, I've been cooking up lean, but fulfilling dinners. Last night we had a breast of skinless chicken with a yummy cranberry sauce, green beans with almond butter & almond slices, and a couple rolls (I only ate 1) :
Tonight's dinner will be a cod fillet with lemon and steamed broccoli. Possibly brown rice too. (Let's not mention the fact that we had McDonalds deluxe breakfasts this morning). I have also been working out more, which feels so good! On Monday I was still sore from working out with my mother-in-law and her personal trainer on Friday, but kept on going. I even got my husband to join in the fun, I have never known him to "workout". Monday morning's workout was in addition to my normal Monday night ballet class. I am still sore. Let's just say, the trainer kicked our butts! He worked our arms and upper body hardcore, I could barely use a hole-puncher the next day at work. Yesterday I was able to relax and re-coop. Tonight I have ballet and tomorrow morning at 7am, which is unheard of for me - I will be working out with the trainer again. Wish me luck!

Here's my most recent finished project. Same hat, different color. Love this pattern!
Now, I am attempting those socks! I made no progress at all last night, just casting on. I've been struggling to figure out how to get started, but I think I now know what I did wrong. I will try again tonight!


  1. yum that cranberry sauce looks really good!

  2. Your meals always sound so wonderful!!! Congrats on keeping the workout going; I've been a bit of a slacker because I get to my house before I get to the gym when I leave work. tsk tsk

    The hat is amazing. It is a great pattern and I wish you well on those socks. I'm working on my newest knit project. Let's just say that fuzzy yarn is interesting to work with. lol

  3. I LOVE cranberry sauce with pollo! :0) I'm totally digging the cabled hat. I have yet to conquer the cables... You rock!
