When Passions Collide

Just a quick little post tonight.  I did go to Weight Watchers tonight but I don't have time to do a post/topic justice.  I will get to it tomorrow.

I wanted to tell you about my other passion, and sadly its not one that goes well with loosing weight and being active.  Actually my favourite activity is quite sedentary I don't think you burn too many calories doing it.  That activity is cross stitch!  I started stitching back in 1997 and I haven't looked back since!  That's actually what I first started blogging about seven years ago, my hobby, my passion! 

There's nothing I get more joy from than to sit down with fabric, needle and thread and make little x's.  One x leads to another and before you know it you have this gorgeous picture.

I have to also admit, I don't feel so guilty sitting in front of the TV as long as my hands are busy.

Did I mention napping is my second favourite hobby?

Well, if your hands are busy with cross stitch, they are much less likely to be busy with food.

It's all about balance in the end. Balancing your time between active time and stitching time is what makes it work for you. This is something I'm just horrible with... but try to work on.

I would be lost without my cross stitching lol.
I have to say that since I've lost the weight and am exercising regularly I actually don't feel guilty cosying up on the sofa on a night now with my stitching. It's my down time after the hard work I've put in during the day, and I love every minute of it.
