This is my first attempt at this scarf. I was pleased with how it turned out. Also it was very quick to make which makes it even better! It turned out much longer then I thought it would. It was 8 feet long when finished.
I had a good week this week. I have been slacking on tracking my food right when I eat it but do go back and track it. I need to get back to tracking it as I eat it.
I went to the gym 4 days last week. Thursday I did not want to go I just wanted to climb back into bed but I made myself go and ended up biking 10 miles and walking a 5 K. It took me two hours but I did it and I felt so good after I was done.
My Favorite Snack for the Week:
18 All-Brand Crackers
1 Wedge Laughing Cow Cheese (any flavor)
So now it is time for the weekly weigh in! This week I lost -2.0 lbs for a total of -3.2 lbs!
I have seen some cool things out there on recycling but this I have to say is one of my favorites. Crocheting with plastic grocery bags is just like crocheting with yarn. If you can do it with yarn you can do it with plastic bags.
In order to make the “Plarn” as we will call it you need to roll a plastic bags into a long strip. Cut off the bottom of the bag so it is open at the end and cut the handles off (save them for later). With the remaining strip cut into one inch sections. Open all loops and add handle loops. You will weave them together into one long plarn strip. There you have it Plarn.
Here is today’s project with the plarn. I made a can holder, so your hands will not get cold with a cold drink.
1 Cup fresh or frozen blueberries (thawed if frozen)
Optional: 1 Teaspoon grated lemon rind
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in medium bowl, stirring well. Make a well in the center. Combine milk, oil, egg and vanilla, and to dry ingredients; stirring just until moist. Gently fold in blueberries. Divide batter evenly among 18 muffin cups. Bake at 400 for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
I was given this recipe yesterday at my Weight Watchers meeting and I had all of the ingredients already in the house so I decided to give it a try. Overall, they were good; I was happy with them, and glad that I now have a good healthy baking alternative since I like to bake so much.
