Subject: RE: Feb 2012 - Exercise by Leaping Over Clutter
My weight's got down below the major stone mark (we do weight in stones and pounds, a stone being 14 pounds) so the next target is the whole stone since I started - another 2 pounds to go to that target. Then I'll switch to the next BMI whole number, or the next round ten of pounds, so I keep having a little target to get to.
Meanwhile, the percentage of fat is dropping as well, so in terms of weight, that's actually dropping faster than the overall weight, which can't be bad. Mind you, I don't believe the amount of fat it says I have at all. If it were all to go, I would be 7 stone, or 98 pounds, which does not look like a healthy weight to be! And I DO have big heavy bones, so I'd probably look like a Ray Harryhausen skeleton warrior from Jason and the Argonauts.
Today I went on the local healthy walk, at a fair old lick, plus an uphill section, but this afternoon is a bit sedentary, watching items I've bid for on ebay. This is in order to declutter the wool stash faster. I was after a Simpleframe knitting machine, a wooden double bed with no carriage, made back in the 70s, when I couldn't afford one, and found myself up against a very determined last minute bidder, who had been bidding against me since I put the first bid in. I pulled out. Now I'm waiting for the last moments on a double bedded Bond machine, again against a determined person, who lost out on the last one to be auctioned, which went for £130 - we're already higher than that. Two hours to go. If I get it I'll be getting rid of my single bed version.
Neither of these items come up very frequently, but I've found one of the wooden ones which no-one bid for last year and have emailed the seller in case it's still available.
Funny way to declutter.
