The Return Of The Knitter

Weight: 126.5
Body Fat: 20.6% + 3% = 23.6%
Measurements: 34"-26"-34"-20"

I don't know what's going on with my weight! I really didn't have that terrible a week. My measurements are still the same, and my body fat is well within it's normal fluctuation range. I just don't know. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what I can do next week. *shrug*

Peanut Butter Crazy...
I ran out of my favorite Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butter last week, so I put in an order to Vitacost earlier this week. I might have gone a little overboard....

Woopsy! Oh well, it's not like it won't get eaten. Maybe I'll even use some to make a peanut butter, banana oat muffin tomorrow morning. I also got something I've been interested in since I tried a bit of it at the hotel during my super fun hurricane weekend.
I haven't quite figured out what exactly I will do with it yet. I'm guessing it's probably going to go into my oatmeal and ...maybe my tea? Or on some English muffins? Only time will tell!

Knit Picky
A few years ago, my primary hobby was knitting.  I was so into knitting at the time that I actually even started a knitting blog. A bit of time passed, and I burned out on knitting. Thing is though, when you burn out on a hobby like knitting, you're left with a pretty large collection of yarn:
And that doesn't even include the necessities:
Fortunately though, I had the foresight to organize my collection into this:
I have a point, I swear, we're getting to it!

This past Tuesday I was actually able to come to my second Fitblog twitter chat, and I happened to chat with Krista of Can't Survive On Yarn Alone. Her blog name alone reminded me that I had other hobbies in addition to baking (read: knitting and crafting) that I actually do enjoy. Then the lovely Ms. Sarah of Running On Words made a big announcement on Wednesday and I figured out a nice way to ease back into knitting.
Umbilical Cord Hat
Cutesy little umbilical cord hats!

I'll be off now, as I've got a date with some yarn and a movie to watch!

Have you got any hobbies that have fallen by the wayside? Have you ever tried to pick them up again? Let me know in a comment down below! :)
