homework, and as a reward she got another insert for her Everlasting Treat Ball. Originally I was hesitant to buy this toy for her, because she can typically destroy a toy labeled to be for aggressive chewers. Luckily, we've had this one for almost a year and it is barely showing wear! Also, the treat inserts last a really long time. She's quite an aggressive chewer and gets hours of gnawing and chewing out of each insert.
WIP: Almost done with my Forest Canopy Shawl. Once I completed the patterns recommended amount of repeats I still had more than a ball of yarn left, so I kept going. I've completed 2.5 more repeats and I'm starting to worry if I have enough to finish. I think I will move on to the edging now. For a while I kept thinking it would be too small, but now my shawl is growing exponentially!
Also, I am almost done with my Cocoa Swap Buddy Buster. I'll post details once my partner gets her package!
SparkPeople New You Bootcamp Challenge COMPLETED! The challenge ran the month of January. I enjoyed it so much I have decided to participate with some other motivated Sparkers in another round for the month of February. This program has helped to get me moving every day. I've now become accustomed to doing one 10 minute video each day, 5 days (minimum) of cardio, and typically I participate in the day's challenge video as well. My goal for next month is to get more cardio in. Overall, I feel more fit and my clothes fit better. I didn't have any huge losses, but any loss for me is a loss. In total I lost 3 lbs. The change in my measurements is more surprising, between my chest waist and hips I lost 3 inches! I gained 1 inch of muscle between my thighs and arms, from all of the lunges and weight training no doubt!
