Knitting Up A Storm!

I.Joined.Ballys Fitness Center.Last.Night.

I have gained 15 of the 40 pounds I lost about 3 years ago and it is pissing me off with this mound of flab around my mid section. Not to mention, what my kids call my crunchy bum. I can't take it anymore, so I'm doing something about it. When I had to loose the weight the first time around, I went to Ballys and was very successful. I plan on being successful again.

I will wake up at, now wait for it, 5:30am to be on a machine on or before 6am the start with the weight machines from 6:25 to 7am. Shower and then run for the 7:42am train to go to work.

Yep, sounds like hard, but you know, I did it before and I will do it again. And I will have to find a way to not put my knitting ahead of my health. Did I say health? Well the real reason I joined is out of pure vanity. I am going to Europe for the month of August and one of those weeks will be on a beach in Greece. I want to strut my stuff in one of my great bikinis. Oh yeah, and wear all my great little dresses and capris that I couldn't wear last year.

I have told a great many people my plan to work out because when I am asked how I'm doing with the whole gym thing, I want to say I am going. Not tuck my tail between my legs and say I gave up.

Knitting content - I am taking out the ribbing on the ESS sleeve because they make me look like popeye - and on a girl, that is far from flattering. My question to this stupid simple sweater is - when will I get to wear you? When I ask!
