- Finish my dissertation
Well it's done! It was stressful but I'm happy with it. I have my viva (where I have to discuss it for an hour or so) on the 22nd Feb, then after that it's finished with forever
- Lose weight
I've lost 20 pounds since I started in October, and am under 10 stone for the first time that I can remember. I've gone down a whole clothes size, and I'm so much happier with how I look. My stomach is pretty much flat. Going to lose another 1/2 to 1 stone but that's it.So well on the way!
- Go to the gym 3 times a week
Yup done, I've been exercising about 6 times a week (trampoline and running) so I'm very happy and I think it's definitely contributed to my weight loss success. I feel so much happier, healthier and have more energy.
- Knit an adult sized garment
Nope, not started yet. My half finished jumper is still in its bag by the sofa...
- No buying yarn
Well, I did fail on this since I've had to buy more to finish some projects. But it's ok, my stash hasn't increased too much, and I haven't bought any that will just go straight into stash.
- Learn to spin
Done! I just span up the last of my kit last night, and it's getting so much better! This is only 18 yards, as it's what's left of the single I had, but it's about DK weight and so much more even than the yarn I spun when I first started. I still have a way to go, but I'm getting there.
- Write more blog posts
I wrote 10 last month, which is about average really. I do need to write more, but I need to actually have something to write about! It's going alright though, I'm sticking with the blog.
