HtbaS – Episode 139

This week I talk about fitness progress, the Northern Beach Lights quilt, getting started on the Star Surround QAL, and how Newton’s Three Laws of Motion apply to quilting, fitness, and life.

  1. Oh yay, I can get a FitBit! I looked at their site a while back and misread what it said and thought you could only sync the gadget with a mobile-type device, and it said it was only compatible with ipod touch 5th gen (mine is 4th) and I was briefly sad and then moved on. But when you mentioned yours was 3rd gen, I was all, “hey, how is she using that with a fitbit?” and went back and lo, the first thing they mention you can sync it to is a PC. Yay reading skills! I may save up and get one — it sounds like it would be fun and motivating.

  2. I think it’s my first time of commenting on an actual episode and on top of everything I’m all caught up! Proud of me? 🙂 So here it is:
    Kudos to you for speaking up at the guild meeting! You totally deserve a chance comparing how much work you put in charity stuff, regardless.
    Congratulations on running the 5K I know how proud you feel it’s a big accomplishment for people who don’t do sports regularly. I was shocked to hear you’re 5’8″, somehow I thought you were in the 5’5″ category :)))
    So you have no iPhone, but got a new iPod. That’s still nerdy to me! 🙂
    Those were my 2 cents, keep on podcasting pretty please! 🙂

  3. Some day, I’ll be a grown up and exercise, but not today. Good for you for powering through your Beach Walk quilting.

  4. Good for you for resisting the lure of the smart phones! I have one of each – old school flip phone for work, and a personal iPhone. I upgraded my flip phone last year for a few reasons: 1. to be able to post pictures to FB and Twitter “live”, and not have to wait until downloading from the camera, 2. not having to carry both a phone AND a camera, 3. DH and DS1 had them and I was jealous of the cool apps (like FB and Twitter), 4. downloading podcasts to my mp3 player was an annoyingly tedious process.

    I enjoyed the Maze Runner series a few months ago. I just read the first book of a YA steampunk trilogy you might like – Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld.

    I liked your quilty interpretation of the laws of motion. I did grin, though, and imagine many listeners cringing when you mentioned physics. Maybe the 2nd law could be F(un)=mass(of fabric) x acceleration(of sewing needle)?

    Thanks for another great episode, and congrats on finishing the 5K training program!
