I made this potholder last night while watching American Idol. I copied the colors from one I saw on Flickr so don’t be too impressed. I think it was maybe from Casey Plus 3, but I could be wrong. I’m too lazy to go look. It was fun to make and I’ll probably make more. Maybe I’ll even try to be original with my colors. The pattern is the Granny Mandala with a round of sc and a round of picots at the end.
Here’s the front & back:
I had no sugar yesterday…none, zero, zippo, zilch, nada. When I realized it was March 1st, I decided that March is going to be a no-sugar month for me. I figure that’ll be a good way to get me started eating better. (I plan to continue with no-sugar after the month is up, but I have to put a reasonable end date to it so I have a goal to shoot for…baby steps. It works for me.)
Just as a side note: Last year I went without sugar for a whole month. I got on the scales after that month and I weighed EXACTLY the same. I didn’t lose even one-tenth of a pound! It was weird. I’m not going to let that bother me this time. If I don’t lose anything, that’s fine. I’m just going to keep on eating better and maybe try to walk around the block a few times during the week. That’s it. I need to do it for my health whether it makes me lose weight or not. I figure eventually it will start to come off if I do that. (As long as I don’t eat a stick of butter to compensate for the sugar loss. Hee.) Next month I’ll add another healthy habit.
I have to get to work now. Y’all have a lovely, sugar-free day!
