This has been a mixed week but I want to share some of my successes with y’all (this translates as ustedes, in case you don’t speak southern).
I posted on my cooking blog that we were going to have some eating changes, I don’t do diets, but I can make changes in how I eat. If you want to read about those changes they are available in my post called, appropriately enough, Changes in Eating Habits. Another thing we started doing is water exercise every day. Husband’s physician actually prescribed specific exercises for him. If you read this article on Lindi’s Ideas you can learn more about the swim school. We didn’t make it to the field trip but it looks like fun was had by all.
The exercising and change in eating habits is starting to pay off. Lin and I took our measurements last month. I have lost 2 whole inches off my waist! I am also down about 10 pounds. Pretty cool, huh?
I finished my shepherd too. Here he is. Tahdah!
He is sitting with his legs straight out in this photo. In the next photo I have him kneeling. You can also see his back a little better.
I finally measured him, he is 18 inches tall.
Here he is with a pocket package of Kleenex for scale.
The lamb is 5 inches at the withers (shoulders) and 6 inches at the head.
This shot with the apple is showing him in the pose that I have decided to “fix” him in. He wil,l of course, have a shepherd’s crook or a staff instead of a chopstick. The apple is also just for scale, it didn’t occur to me until I started typing this to use a yardstick or something for scale, like the door at 7/11. Check out his sandals, they come off!
I spent around 4 hours on his hands so they merited a closeup.
