I call myself a runner, except I haven't run a single mile this month. I didn't run a single mile last month. In September, my mileage was in the single digits. I'm not a runner. I'm a poser! Aack.
Yesterday, I went for a walk with my daughter. It about killed me! I could barely haul my butt up hills I used to run with no trouble. Good grief. I need to get back to exercising. Regularly. Regularly meaning at least every other day, not every other month.
And my diet. Good grief. My diet lately has consisted mostly of coffee and candy corn. It's no wonder my jeans hurt.
I have to get back to leading a healthier lifestyle. So, today I decided to go for another walk. I think it was snowing. Ok, I know it wasn't - it's in the low 50's. Too warm for snow. But it sure felt like snow. And tonight, after dinner, I'll finish the candy corn and be done with it. I know, I know. If I was a better person, I'd throw it away. But I'm not. Besides, I can't waste it - all those starving children in Africa and what have you....
Ok, on to knitting. That is, if you can get past this horrible photo.
What an awesome example of bad lighting. The red is actually a much deeper red. Sort of holly berry red. Actually, I think it is named Hollyberry. And the purple, well, in real life, the purple is actually a pretty purple, not that glaring, Walmart purple. The problem I'm having is that I can't decide which to use next. I plan to knit a small scarf/shawl type of thing and I just can't decide. I want to use the red because Christmas is coming. I want to use the purple because it's pretty and because it's sock weight instead of lace weight. The purple will knit up faster. But the red is pretty too. Decisions, decisions. I hate decisions. Which would you pick?
