love handles

i used to be able fit into all my clothes and most of the clothes i take into the fitting room to try. not anymore. i think it was soon after my 30th birthday that i realise that you can't be slim and fit forever. but i let it slip and let my belly 'grow' freely.

this morning i put on my shorts and it hit home -- i need to start exercising. (wish i could vomit out the two pain au chocolat i had for breakfast, in bed, this morning.)

so i started off with a few sit-ups. i only lasted 30 sit ups and i felt like i was going to die. maybe i'll take the dog out for a walk later. i think my biggest problem is being lazy and not having enough determination.

perhaps i'll take the bicyle out as well and do some hills.


the beginning of blogging

this is my second attempt to begin a regular blogging habit.

ah bea and aniq make blogging so easy but as i have discovered, it's not.

i was trying to recall the events that have happened in my life for the past few months but in the end i gave up and thought i'll concentrate on what happens from now.

have just started on quite a major cross stitch project and am still at the initial stage of being excited about it. ah bea said i would never finish it, which is not a very encouraging statement really. but never mind, i told her i'll try my best and i hope to get it finished. i found this trial software which lets you create your own cross stitch chart from any photo you like and it was absolutely amazing. so i got straight on it and created a chart from the picture of Sasha and the next thing i know, the materials are ordered online, the fabric chosen and the project is well underway.

i think this will do for my first post. perhaps when i have fresh ideas i shall come back. perhaps.
