2018 has begun and it’s time to get back to work after the holidays. Like many I know, I didn’t set resolutions for this year. Nor did I set a “word” as I’ve done in the past. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have intentions. The same intentions that I’ve had for a bit now. To find my best health, and learn to embrace this aging process. To make quilts for my family, which are coming along slower than I wanted, but still progressing. To find joy in the everyday things. To share my love of several different crafts. And finally to learn to laugh again.
To reach one of my goals I’ve started paying more attention to what I eat, how much sleep I get and walking. And I replaced my FitBit Clip with a FItBit Alta HR. My intention was to wear the Alta HR 24/7 to track steps, heart rate, and sleep. That didn’t work out as expected. I am left-handed, but grew up in a right-handed world learning crafts like knitting and sewing. That caused me to be almost ambidextrous. So, despite the right or left handed setting I was loging false steps. To that end I wear the Alta HR when I’m truly exercising to monitor heartrate, or at night to monitor sleep, but have gone back to the Clip for daily monitoring. And I’ve joined a few step challenges and an online walking group amongst other knitters.
And I’ve returned to teaching on a larger basis. Starting next month, I have at least one class monthly that I’m teaching. Classes will be posted on Quilters Loft’s blog and I’ll keep you updated here as well.
For now it’s time to get the day going. Run a few errands with the husband in is lovely weather, then come back to my warm studio and work on a custom quilt and class samples.
