I Have Lost

my son. Oh yes, he has been taken over by this lovely girl that he is living with. Enough said.
On to better news: I had my cholestrol taken on Oct 21st at a clinic held at the pharmacy. My total cholestrol was down from 9.3 to 4.08..... Oh yeah baby.... mama has been getting her fat smaller ass out of bed Mon - Friday at 5:15 and working it. I cannot wait to see how low it is after the 6 weeks. I actually really enjoy it and next week we will start doing the machines every second day....and that may very well be a different story. The only problem is ..... staying awake at night for some sewing time.
Did I ever mention that I never thought I would live to see the day that I no  longer smoked..
I am so so thrilled that I no longer smoke. I hope I never ever never ever put another smoke in my mouth.
Have a great day!

My doctor's office called about my test results for my cholestrol levels. I was not surprised how high they were but my Doctor was. She upped my dose of Lipitor but really it is not an "up" dose because I haven't been taking my Lipitor for about 2 years because I did not want to pay for them. But don't think I wouldn't spend that 45 per month on quilting.. There are heart issues every which way in my family so it was actually a stupid thing to do. Regardless, I quit smoking 4 months ago...so that will help..I am taking my Lipitor at the "upped" dose for 6 weeks and then I will get re-tested.... and since Oct 1st - four mornings a week I get to see this:

I joined the YMCA with my friend Trudy. This is usually what we see when we are LEAVING. We meet there at 6:00 am and we have started with swimming to help build our endurance and flex our muscles. This weekend I am going out to get me some cute workout clothes for the machines that we will start on next week. I am excited...Wonder how long that will last? Already I feel so much better..Who knew??

So when I am not hauling my fat ass in the pool I am working on this quilt:

I am so addicted to making these blocks. I made another 10 last night and I think I may have enough for a good size lap or twin. You can make this quilt too if you follow this tutorial http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2009/09/tutorial-double-hourglass-blocks-easy.html. She tells you to try one block first, and for me to get it to work I had to cut the square 7 5/8 x 7 5/8. But do try one..they are addicting.
Have a good day.
