My big dream project, another UFO quilt, and a bit of baking

Big Dream Project

My big dream project is me. I bought a Fitbit back in February. It has been a great reminder to at least go for a walk. I have been more consistent in the last few months and yesterday I got my New Zealand badge! It means the total miles I have walked equals the length of NZ - 990 miles! You would think I would be stick thin by now, but I am not. I sure can walk up a hill now so I can feel how much stronger my legs are. My goal was to get at least 10,000 steps a day, but I need to up my game to get in 5 miles a day. For me that is around 13,500 steps as I have a short stride. Only time will tell if increasing my steps shrinks my backside and waist.

After walking I made coffee cakes for the guys at work. I had a carton of sour cream that needed to be used up. While the cakes baked I did dishes.

I finally got into the studio and cut the rest of the Kona strips I needed for the next UFO quilt. I will sew these rows of strips in to sets and then cut the sets.

Good for you! My exercise has been on hiatus since my summer asthma issues and a pulled pectoral muscle. I'm slowly getting back in with yoga first. I hate it when something happens to stop my routine!
