Yes, I am so happy today. I made this lovely green skirt at me Sew Crafty class this past Sunday. It's my first skirt and I couldn't believe how easy it was. I am looking forward to making another. Here are is my sew fab outfit...
Black ruffled pullover-Anthropologie
Green polka dotted skirt - made by me!
black peep - Rack Room
So I have to give a big shout out to Sarah at Sew Crafty! It was a great class and I am really looking forward to many more classes. If you are in Houston, I highly recommend checking them out! They do way more than just sewing.
So here is the original skirt I made my pattern from. The brown paper next to it is the pattern we made using recycled grocery bags.
Now on to the workouts...
Since I haven't had a Bodybugg screenshot in a while, I thought I'd let you know that my workouts are still going full force. I am back on the treadmill more and more and tonight was a personal best for me. I should explain how I hated running when I started working out. I had bad shin splints and would just walk. Well with the help of interval running/walking and jump roping, I can now run for 10 minutes straight. I know 10 minutes doesn't seem much, but for me it's a sweet victory. I was able to walk for 3 minutes and then run again, and so on... In my 45 minute time on the treadmill, I ran 75% of the time. I was so happy! I burned 554 calories in 45 minutes. Freakin' awesome! I hope you guys are also reaching your own personal goals. I know it can be rough sometimes, but even the smallest little victories make it all worth it. Happy workouts everyone!
