Coming Clean in the Studio — Part 3

It is Wednesday, so it must be weigh-in day. And I am happy to say that I am down “almost” another pound. I celebrated by going out to buy some new walking shoes. I have just about worn out every pair of walking shoes that I have. They look fine, but I have started getting some foot and hip pain because there is no more shock absorbency. While I was there, I had to get a pair of these:


I discovered that if you go to the mall with Mr C, you can get aerobic steps because you do not stop and look or window shop. I got an extra 12 minutes today!

I also finished most of my clean up in the studio. I have a few piles of supplies to put away. I also want to do a major clean-up in my little kitchen area. I hope to accomplish that tomorrow and then it is back to creating.


Today started out overcast and chilly, but this afternoon and evening it was just a perfect fall day. I took Maggie for a quick walk around the Rhododendron Garden at 5, and I decided it was better than a glass of wine.

    Congrats on the “alomst.” I’m plateau’d but not worried. Made it to the gym only 1 day this week – argh. But my jeans are feeling more comfortable. Love the shoes!

  2. I can’t wear those kind of shoes because they are too soft. Because of the softness and ‘give’, after even 1 hour of wearing, my hip hurts. It’s a leg length thing I’ve been told.

    Had to come out of lurkdom to tell you that you have shamed me into going to clean up my studio… right after I drop the kids off at school!

    Ah, the difference between “guy shopping” and “girl shopping.” My hubby always wants to know which method we’re using before he consents to going along for the ride. Lucky for us, I’m the consumate guy shopper — decide what you want: go to the store most likely to have it: buy it: go home. No browsing or window shopping. The downside: not a lot of stumbling across bargains.

    those are the best crocs ever. Enjoying the glimpse into your studio (although I scoff, HA! at your idea of impossibly messy heh).

    Is that a clear cutting mat I spied in the last post? If so, where would one source such a wondrous beast?
