Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!
Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?
All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from March 9th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday March 12th at 7pm (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!
Well, it’s been QUITE the busy few weeks. I’m sorry, again, for the delayed posts the past few weeks. Time just keeps running away from me!
If we were having coffee I’d start out by telling you all about the Yarn Crawl. It was a lot of fun – I spent three days traveling around to different yarn stores all over the Metro Area with two of my friends (with another friend joining us for one day, and meeting up with a few other friends on occasion). Most of the shops were new to me, so it was fun to see what kind of things each one had – and I acquired a fair amount of yarn. I had gone in with a few patterns in mind that I want to try, and managed to get almost all the yarn I needed for those (I still need a little more for a blanket I want to make, but I got what I need to start it, and I’ve got time on that one!). Now the challenge will be to actually get myself moving on making those patterns. I’m still pretty much a beginner when it comes to crocheting, and don’t have the best track record for actually getting everything done that I plan to do, but this year I am determined to get a lot more projects done.
This weekend I hope to play catch-up a bit. There is some cleaning that desperately needs my attention. And I really need to get moving on outlining and figuring out how to properly set up Chapter 4 of my Novel .
Had a bunch of doctor talks – looks like I’ll be able to line up Gallbladder surgery to coincide with my recovery from foot surgery. Which, though it means I won’t likely get as much done during that second week of foot surgery recovery as I would have liked, it’s less time away from work. Which is helpful on MANY levels.
TW: Food and Diet-talk
Also this weekend, some serious meal-planning work. In the face of some of my health-issues I worked with a dietitian, so am now looking at how to make it so I have the right kind of food around to eat. It wasn’t like he had anything ground-breaking to say, but it was a nice reminder and I have a new app to use to try tracking what I eat so I can see things like the breakdown of fats and calories and so forth. In the past I’ve tried food tracking before, and usually fall apart somewhere after the first week — so I’m hoping the fact that I have another appointment with him in two weeks will help keep me on track.
I don’t talk much about my weight on here – it’s not something I particularly like to talk about, and I know it can be triggering and challenging for a lot of people. But it’s been an important part of my week so, here I go.
I put on a fair amount this past year, and now I got diagnosed with “fatty liver.” So it’s time to really make some changes. Not just because of the weight, or the impact it’s had on my health, but also because I don’t really like how I feel in my own skin right now. I’d adjusted to being heavier than I’m “supposed” to be, but suddenly the clothes I wore before don’t fit right and I just don’t like how it feels. So I want to change that. I liked this dietitians approach (“We’ll make sure you don’t have to stop eating cheese,” and “There are no bad foods,” kind of stuff). So I’m hopeful.
What does your weekend hold? What has your week been like?
