What Would You Do?
It is getting hot here, around 89*. We skipped the 60's and 70's and went right to the upper 80's. The humidity is also back. I can't handle lots of heat and humidity, so I am staying in today. My body needs to get used to these summer temps.
I fused this block and want to machine applique it. I have done some machine applique, but not a lot. This is a design from Sindy at Fat Cat patterns. She has awesome patterns and most are free. This one is called Cali. Hmm, after I saw that, I knew I had to make it. Here it is.
I went out this morning and walked for 30 minutes. Ok, I waited too long and almost got too hot, so I now know that I need to do my walking early. I have also been very diligent about my diet. No pop or sweets for a week now. Also no wheat. I can already breathe better and have lost some weight. I really have to keep this up as my fasting blood glucose scared me last week. I have been able to control my diabetes without drugs and would like to keep it that way. So it is time to buckle down, eat right, exercise, and take some weight off. I would really appreciate any prayers for me to be able to get back in shape and get my BG down that you might feel drawn to say for me. I have until fall to get things lined out, or I need to go on some meds. I really, really don't want to do that.
Well, I guess that is enough for today. I am really hoping to be able to get my hair cut tomorrow. Wednesday is Mom's birthday, so I will spend it with her. Friday I leave to spend the weekend with Ashton and Ava. So this is a really busy week for me. Not sure how many posts I will get in. (grin) Thanks for visiting. Have a great day.
