I love crafting but I know that crafting makes me gain weight. I tend to sit hours and hours without moving and it feels so good to do that, comfy knitting in a comfy couch, why not, right? The problem is that I have a high cholesterol issue and I choose not to take any medication (avoiding all the side effects). Hence I have to control what I eat and try to exercise regularly. I was good at exercising until I started crafting obsessively. Oh,I don’t want to only blame the craft that causes my sedentary life style. It’s all on me too, my lack of time management and pure laziness …lol

So I thought, why don’t I just cooperate my exercise routine with my beloved craft? I did it! I tried Pilates and it worked. Although i might not burn a whole lot of calories working out on a yoga mat or get a number of rows of knitting/crocheting done, I think it’s better than nothing, isn’t it?

Here it is, a short video clip I made of my “Knit with Fitness” Episode 1 (meaning there might be more in the future..lol) I hope to try more different exercise reps that I can cooperate with knitting, crocheting, and drop spindling (that might be tricky!) and I will make sure to share them here as well with you in the future 🙂

In the meantime, happy Crafting!

March Wrap-Up

 

The Opening Scene

In a galaxy far far away, a stormtrooper is in search of a master to teach him how to knit.

The stormtrooper, an avid crocheter (oh yes!), is a novice knitter. He just wishes to explore more of new knitting techniques and try complicated stitches.He is told to come to master “Mia” and is greeted by “Meow” the gatekeeper.

The stormtrooper mistakes Meow for Mia and right away asks the gatekeeper , “CAN YOU TEACH ME HOW TO KNIT?”

What would Meow say? …
