Who Is Walkerlady?

My photo
I'm the 'Lazy Quilter' who doesn't always take the time to try to achieve perfection. I prefer to enjoy the process of creating instead of agonizing over being perfect. I am 'Walker Lady' who changed my lifestyle and lost over 70 pounds in the process! I wear the hats of a Quilter, Artist, Crafter, Musician, Life Coach, Wife, and Mom, all rolled up into one unique human bean!

Z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z

Getting enough sleep is very important for weight loss as well as healthy living. Many of us do not get enough sleep. You would think that the more you are awake, the more you burn calories. Funny thing about that though, your body needs to rest and rebuild cells. A lot of that happens when we are at rest and our metabolism doesn't have to think about other things like laundry, dishes, cleaning the toilet, what to fix for breakfast/lunch/dinner, feeding the dog, feeding the cat, getting to class, getting to the gym, going for walks, sweeping the sidewalk, etc. The brain does a lot of multi-tasking! It needs that down time to renew and rejuvenate.

Abby, often has trouble getting enough sleep. I wonder what the problem is?
I wonder?

The weather is getting friendlier for walking again. I've been busy, inside, due to ice and snow and cold. Trouble is, part of that business was baking things for holiday parties that were cancelled. Now what will I do with all this pumpkin cheesecake???

Walk-on....yes, I shall walk-on!!!

Love the cartoon! But hope Abby gets some catch up zzzzz's soon.

And the cat is kind of an awesome metaphor for hot flashes...

Thanks Crabby! Yes, I can see how the cat would be like hot flashes. hahahaha

Abby usually gets enough sleep. We recently lost one of our cats. He was usually the one in bed with us.

Now one of the girls has decided she can sleep with us. She isn't as quiet as the boy cat was!

She has settled down some though, so all is well. :)
