I have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I am changing my lifestyle to live. This is not a choice anymore, it is a must.
I have cut most of the bad carbs out of my food, but I still have cravings.
Today, on Pinterest, I saw a recipe for banana oatmeal cookies. These were the only ingredients.
Why not? I have bananas and oats.
2 ripe bananas- mashed
1 cup oatmeal
Mix, drop by teaspoon on baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 350
I had to change it.
2 ripe bananas- sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
Mix in food processor.
Drop by teaspoon onto baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes at 350.
They are so good!
Next time I think I will add a bit of dark cocoa powder.
Made 16 cookies

First we moved the bed and then grabbed all the yarn and fiber we could put into totes.
Then we moved the metal cubes
We got everything sorted
Except the totes of stuff we couldn't fit in the cubbies.
I guess I need to go purchase more.
I also need to move my computer in this room from our bedroom and buy a couple of book cases to hold all my craft books that are still in the office. I will tackle the office this next week and get it all set up for Sarge to use.

Happy new year!
I know it has been a while since I posted but I thought I would try blogging to keep me on track with my personal makeover.
Today is the start of a new year and I am using it to also start a new me. I am going to try to post weekly about changes and new adventures.
Today started with the tradition on watching tge Rose Parade. This year, I did not watch it from the couch, but instead from my treadmill. I only clocked 30 minutes at a 2 incline before my knee said it was done. Still, it is a start. 31 days to make a habit has begun. As time goes forward I will add different exercises as well.
I also did a weigh in today. I am not proud of my weight, but it is what it is and I accept that I need to post it in order to keep track of my weight loss/new me thought process. I start this year at 298 pounds. I am going to try to lose a pound a week at this time. I may up that in the future, but even a small goal is good when starting out.
I rejoined my fitness pal to help with this goal.
So, here I go...may 2014 be the year I become the person I want to be!

I did finish a couple of sweaters while all of this has been going on.
First, The Calligraphy. (ravelry link)
And buttons sewn on:
The yarn is North Hampton Sport in Natural and the buttons are beach stones. I love the way it fits!
Second is Little Bear's Gramps (ravelry link)
The knitting on this was done a while ago, I was just waiting to find the perfect buttons. I think I found them.
The yarn is Patons classic wool in marine and chocolate. The buttons are handmade leather look.
Back to cleaning!!
