Walking

Well, I have made a challenge on Nike + for walking 15 miles per week for the rest of 2010.

Nike + is a fun little gadget that tracks miles walked (or ran), minutes, average stride and calories spent.  It will also act as a pedometer.  Costs ~ $30 and can be used with the Iphone (3gs and greater) as well as 5th Gen nano’s.

I got a new nano from work (dont have an Iphone) so it was a good fit for me.  I use it to track walks/runs as well as steps taken throughout the day.  We are supposed to walk 10,000 steps (5 miles) a day.  I can get close to 5k but its rare to get close to 10k.

Stitching

I dont have any photos to share today.  I did pickup Stitching Row by Bent Creek this week.  Changed alot of the colors as they didnt go with the fabric I chose.  I started stitching on the 4th but Im not liking how some of the colors are blending with the fabric.  Still cant see them!  Back to the DMC color wheel…

I couldnt work on BBD House 1 – Snow Garden like I wanted due to company so I worked a bit on my Carriage House stocking.  Still loving the colors I chose for that one.

Thanks for all the visits!
