Tonight I let my little Tao book open to the page it chose and this was the quote of the day with the title..."Patience".
At first it made me giggle when I saw how the apple quote related to my post this evening, but the title did make me ponder a bit.
See that Wii character? That is my Wii Fit Wii Mii.....and man o man is she ever apple shaped! But isn't she cute?
When you enter your weight into the game your belly grows to match the weight entered....sigh. My girls wii mii's are model slim unlike old humpty dumpty me...LOL. There's no wee in WII Mii for me.
Last week I mentioned that I had slipped a little in the weight scale department so I really want to catch it before it gets away from me again. A few weeks ago I bought a Wii Fit for the family and decided yesterday that it was time for me to MAKE some time in my day for a little exercise. So....... I put the game in the wii box to find my way around the whole thing. Wii told me I was the equivalent of a 75 year old. Crap...I couldn't figure out what it was asking me to do, so I just played with the step feature and this morning the back of my calves told me it does work, which encouraged me to go back again today.
Sooo............this morning I hop back on it and it tells me I am the equivalent of a 50 year old, and that is good because I am 50. Younger would be better, but at least I am not my parents age. :)
I played with step again and kicked butt. Destroyed Hannah and Courtney's records.........and then it was all down hill.
Weigh in....I am obese.
Strength training....I am a couch potato.
Balance............well, I am unbalanced.
So when I finished I was told that I am an obese, unbalanced couch potato. (but the grrl does have rhythm...lol)
Patience...........what an appropriate title to the apple quote for me today. I didn't get to be an obese, unbalanced couch potato overnight and it is going to take time, determination and patience to look more like my celery stick daughters. (and less wine)
Tao says to follow nature and that requires patience. There is definitely some truth there....
A new kind of candy.............
Maplewing is growing...wheeeee! 2 more rows this evening then we move on to the decreases. I really love working on this shawl. It is so easy to keep your place which has meant almost no tinking back. Pretty darn good considering I am not using markers or life lines. This would be a perfect big project for someone looking to move beyond a beginners lace project.
