Lyrical (Muse) Progress No. 2

Hello everyone,

I know I’ve been away for quite some time.  I can’t believe it’s been a little over a month since I last posted.

I’ve been spending most of my time in the gym.  I’m following a 12-week program and I’ve been hitting it hard five days a week.  My workouts last anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours.  On my rest days, I rest.  Sadly, I lost a bit of the stitchy bug during this time, and I didn’t even pick up my project.

Unfortunately for me, but fortunately for my stitching, I hurt my back.  I don’t believe I hurt my back with the program.  I believe I hurt my back going off the program and following a random workout set up by my trainer.

I didn’t feel any pain the day of the workout to indicate I had an injury.  In fact, I felt it four days later.  And by felt it, I mean, I felt it!  I could not move.  I could not bend over.  I could not sit still.  I was in that much pain.

As it turns out, I was off last week on vacation and spent my time recuperating.  Towards the end of my recoup, I picked up my cross-stitch again and managed to get some solid stitching done.

Here’s how far I got:

I’m hoping to get the stitching completed tonight.  I plan to work on the beading during my lunch hours.

Now that I put in a few days stitching, I feel like I could stitch for hours on end again.  That is, until my back heals, because once it does, I’ll be picking up where I left off on the program.
