Okay well one of my resolutions for the year (besides getting my WIPs done) is losing a couple pounds. Yeah had a baby almost 2yrs ago and still haven’t lost the baby weight. Goal is to lose about 20ish pounds by May.
1. I have to stop eating junk food at my desk. Yeah I think I get really stressed out when I’m at work and I didn’t really pay attention to the bad stuff I was eating. Well take that back. . I did know that it was junk but the junk taste so yummy! Yeah my worse, worse, worse combo was coffee and peanut butter m&ms. (just typing it out is making my mouth water a little)
2. Start exercising regularly. Yeah I went to the big named gym and signed up for with a trainer. I think that I’m more accountable if I have an appt with someone, ya know? Like I can be a lazy ass, and not go to the gym but if I know there’s someone there waiting for me then I’ll make more of an effort.
3. Walking during my lunch hr. My work is by a water way and I thought that I could start walking/running during lunch. I would have to eat at my desk after that but I’m fine with that. I don’t know if you have the same problem as I do – but I just don’t have time! Where do I fit everything I need to do and everything I want to do in one week. . . it’s pretty frustrating to juggle.
So if that’s the case then, I need a cute bag to put my running shoes/work out clothes in. . .
Have ya’ll seen the awesome FREE drawstring bag tutorial from Jeni Baker of In Color Order? (Oh yeah I said FREE) But you might as well spend the measly $6.50 for the bigger pattern – it includes 8 more bags!
One of the bag is called the laundry size. . . it’s “the perfect size for dirty laundry, large toys, a quilt, etc.”
This by fair is the girlest thing I’ve every made. .
Since I’ll be hauling it back n’ forth from work to home or home to gym I thought I should add a strap for it. It wasn’t that hard most of the supplies could be picked up at Jo’s. But I could just add a strap to it . . . it’s going to look ugly in the middle of the fabric like that!!! Oh, how bout some pretty sexy looking black trim? Oh baby!
All n’ all it took me (2) nights to put it together – not bad for a full time worker/mommy/wife right?
