I didn't lose any weight this week, but that's OK. I've lost a decent amount in the past month, and since my personal goal was 1lb per week, and I've lost 6lbs 8oz in the past four weeks, then I'm not bothered about having a week where I don't lose anything. Besides, that happens sometimes... Weeks with no weight loss, I mean.
I finished the second armchair throw Saturday evening. I didn't bother taking a photo though, because it's exactly the same as the other armchair throw, so I didn't see the point. Anyway, I gave the set to my Mam yesterday (Monday) and she loves it (she'd made sure not to look at the posts when I posted photos on here, so she hadn't seen it before yesterday).
Sunday I started Louise's scarf. I haven't done as much of it as I would have liked to, but I'll work on it later. I hope Louise likes the scarf as much as Mam likes her throw set!
Three of the courses I was doing are finished now... "Haiku Poetry," "Journalism," and "Basic Writing Skills." The rest will be finishing in the next few days, so by next week I'll be choosing the courses for the next batch; and having Kelly help me sign up for them.
My feet are sore and blistered. I think it's because of my shoes. Plimsoles aren't good walking shoes! It was fine when I wasn't walking much, but now that I'm walking more... Not so much. So I decided I need some decent walking shoes; before my feet get worse!
As it happens, there are sales on in many clothing shops - as well as most other shops - right now. And one of those sales is on walking shoes. So, I ordered myself a pair from Sports Direct's website earlier today. I should have them Thursday or Friday. I ordered a pair for Kelly too, since his old ones are in need of replacing, and it cost less for both pairs and the delivery charge than it did for his before, so I figured now - while the sale was on - would be a good time to get his replaced... Especially since I was paying the delivery charge for mine anyway, so his are technically being delivered for free.
The course I did on "Walking For Health" not long ago was stressing the importance of having decent walking shoes, and since I didn't - as already mentioned - I figured I really should. In these past few years (since I stopped walking as much) I haven't bothered to get more than plimsoles or other light weight shoes that aren't really meant for walking, so I figured it was time I changed that and got a decent pair of walking shoes.
I should get some decent socks too, but I'm still trying to figure out what decent socks would be.
You may or may not have noticed, but I've been adding "topics" to my posts. I still have loads of old posts to add labels to, but after putting labels on almost a hundred posts I got bored of it for now. LOL! I started it because I was looking for a post the other day and finding it hard to find, so I figured if I add labels to my posts then in future I'll be able to find them easier. At least, I hope I will, anyway. I'll finish adding labels as and when I have the time and inclination to do so. I have almost 2000 posts on my blog though, so it could take me a while to get them all done.
