Fast and Easy or Slow and Steady? Open Line Friday

Machine Quilting, Fill Designs, Fast and EasyGood Morning, Quilters and Fitness Pros!

It’s been a busy week for all of us and next week I have some BIG NEWS to share…

In the mean time, how’s it going with our first challenge in #theinboxjaunts #losethosefatquarters?

Don’t forget, we are Running (or walking) for the Roses.  Keep your eye on the prize:

Roses, Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy

Of course, THE REAL PRIZE is health and fitness!

Our plan for this week:

  • Be aware of our sedentary/active time balance…in other words, how much time do we spend sitting???
  • Make a decision to MOVE MORE–No Excuses!
  • Write achievable goals–and keep the promises we make to ourselves.
  • Reward ourselves with quilting time (not food).
  • Continually evaluate and adjust.

With that last point in mind…

How is it going?

What is working?  What is not?  

For me…I did well increasing my active time and have kept my exercise goal of walking 4 miles 4 times this week.

What’s not working…writing down my sedentary time…I need a daily calendar or something.  Perhaps just a way to mark every half hour of sitting without moving….Not sure–

What worked for YOU?

What didn’t?

And What’s YOUR NEW plan?  If something is not working, make a new plan ASAP!


Just a quick reminder…when it comes to fitness and health…

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

If you are looking for Fast and Easy–try machine quilting–I am over at BERNINA’s blog, We All Sew, with three Fast and Easy quilting motifs!

Happy Mother’s Day,
