day 4

got a few minutes this morning to work on this. Love how this one turned out. i'm starting to feel my groove, both with my ww thing and this journal. Have eaten pretty well today, i actually ate a piece of fruit :)

day 3 & art class

Well here is my day 3 for the 21 challenge. Not overly enthusiastic about it. Didn't really turn out like i had envisioned it. It's been really hard for me to get used to working in this old book. Not sure why, but i'm just getting my thoughts down and playing. No stress about this. Just letting it flow. Kinda freeing. Today was a hard day as far as my goal went. The stress today was really bad and of course I went right to the food. Not a good mix. Think i will try to run today, maybe reduce the stress a little bit.

journaling reads: "Reminder to self...i truely believe that everything happens for a reason and we can learn from every experience. i also believethat a positive attitude isessential when the twistsand turns come my way its time to keep my chin up and continue on. "

On another note, wanted to say thanks for all the awesome comments yesterday. It really warmed my heart and totally made my day. I couldn't believe all the people who stopped by to say hi. I never have this many blog visitors.

Yesterday was art morning at the MacIver homeschool. Lots of fun learning to painting trees and doing playdough. We learned the differences between hardwood and evergreen trees. The kids went outside to geta closeup view of our big, tall redwoods. Love that we are doing this!!

Been working on lots of stuff. I finished 3 projects last night. Really feeling inspired lately, hope it lasts.

21 day challenge

Last night i popped over to this blog and found out she is starting this 21 day challenge. I was so excited to see this, because i missed it the first time around. This is what i need right now! The whole idea is that it takes 21 days to create or break a habit. So i want to try my whole weight watchers thing and really stick to it this time. This way i will have an artistic outlet to journal about my ups and downs and use it as a motivational tool. I'm getting so excited about this. i worked on my book last night.

I've been wanting to just use an old book for an art journal, so i found this old childrens reader that i am going to make my own. i decorated the cover. it reads, "for me, for them, for us" . the meaning behind it is that sticking to my ww and losing the weight is definately for me, but also for Rich and the kids. I will be healthier and ultimately feel better. it is for US!! i'm feeling very motivated and excited to get started.

Last week I was so excited because a friend of mine from 2p's told me that 2 of my scrapbook pages were featured here. i was so out of this world shocked and honored. These gals that put on "the dares" are so amazingly talented, and they are so inspiring.

This week is gonna be busy. Lots of stuff going on, but I'm gonna check in tomorrow so you can peak at my page one of my journal. leave me a comment and let me know you stopped by. :)
