Complete the Insanity Workout

I did it. I. Fucking. Did. It.

Six days a week for nine weeks was no easy feat in and of itself. Add to that the fact that Insanity lives up to its name, and I couldn't possibly be prouder of myself. 

I didn't lose a ton of weight because I didn't change my diet (oh well, whatever), but I did gain a huge amount of strength. And I've gotten compliments from people on how good I look too. I'll take it!

Learn How to Arm Knit

My mom sent me a link to a video a while ago of this woman knitting with her arms instead of using needles, and I knew I had to try it. What a great way to make a quick gift! Even better, what a great way to reduce my yarn stash!

Today I finally tried it, and you can see the result in the picture. It was so easy, quick, and fun. I used a really chunky yarn in two colors, but I bet if you wanted to use a lighter weight yarn, you could just use more strands at a time. I think I'll try that. I really need to bust through my stash; I have too much yarn I don't have projects for...

Anyone want a chunky cowl?

Organize the Storage Closet

Believe it or not, this closet used to be so messy we couldn't even walk back there. The entire space was filled with books, memorabilia, and stuff we just didn't even know we had or what to do with. Not anymore! I got rid of a ton of garbage and organized everything into what you see here. It took me two days, but it was so worth the time. I'm feeling super accomplished right now. Buh-bye, clutter!
