Sacrifices

The last week has been a trying one... My resolution for 2008 was to set a better example for my kids... So, I've been going to the gym 5 days/wk (M-F) which equates to 3 of those days circuit training and 20 miles/week on the elliptical and on top of that.. (Sat and Sunday are my days off) . Mind you.. I'm still a chubbalub...just when I think I'm starting to get in better shape, I twist the wrong way, the back goes out, and am stuck on my back for 2.5 days. I have not watched one TV show when it actually aired.. Always on DVR or onDemand...some weeks later. I try and listen... and listen.. and listen some more to the kids.. Where now, when one of my kids say "This one time..." and I no longer say in my head "at band camp"..
AND to make the ultimate of sacrifices.. "I've given up Diet Pepsi" for Lent.. (and I'm not CATHOLIC, but my kids are) again.. positive perception... I'm hoping to go longer... I cannot begin to tell you how difficult this has been.. "Hello, my name is Tracy. It's been 6 days since my last Diet Pepsi." So, it's been water only for me.. ok. and morning coffee but that's it.. Which I now ponder if withdrawals of Nutrasweet can be attributed to an increase in stress, thus the outcome of my crippled state.. Hell, who knows... I just know it's time to quit the stuff when you realize your consumption would be calculated in liters.. On the knitting front, I did finish the Quickie Cowl (b/c my Sis took my original) and another Neckwarmer for my Mom who requested on in blue.. and I'm 1/2 way done with the VK Winter 2007/2008 Cable hat #12. Ok.. I'm off to fill up my water bottle... Have a great day all!

You are a good mama. I don't know how you get so much done and still have time to knit. But, honestly, give up diet soda? Are you crazy????! NEVER!

What - are you just trying to kill yourself? Exercise, no soda... why not just do away with knitting, too, for the trifecta?

You'd get along well with my husband. He too likes the band camp line. I think our kids actually think he went to a band camp.

And I saw your list of favorite authors-ever read Ruth Rendell?
