Perfect 10 Update #9

Here’s my second to last update for the Perfect 10 Challenge. While the weight isn’t moving too quickly and the water has been a struggle I have to admit I’m excited that I’ve completed my main goal of this challenge!

My Perfect 10 Goals Are:
  1. Complete the Couch to 5K program. Yes!!!!!!! I finished week 9 on Thursday. So, I have officially completed the Couch to 5K program!!! I am not running a full 5K yet (3.1 mi), so I will be continuing my runs and adding a couple of minutes each week until I reach that distance. Then I plan on working on my speed.

  2. Drink 6-8, 8 oz. glasses of water daily. Kind of. Four days this week I got at least six glasses in, so that is progress with the water.

  3. Adjust my eating to see weight loss. No, but TOM has arrived and PMS seems to bring a gain lately. I’m trying not to use PMS as simply an excuse for such a large gain, but I know it is a fact of life. I’m confident it will come off next week, so I’m not worried.

As for the little tidbit on me….

I enjoy scrapbooking. I’ve dabbled in it for the past twelve years. It’s a hobby I absolutely love, but I also like other crafts, so I don’t sit and put all my extra time into it. In my dreams I have this ultra organized scrapbooked space with everything at my disposal to just sit and create. 🙂 I’m thinking this will happen more when (A) I keep my scrapping area clean and (B) my kids are grown or even (C) I just make myself go spend 30 minutes once a week and get a page or two done.

About two years ago my neighbor friend introduced me to the world of digital scrapbooking. I now really enjoy that also. It’s not traditional at all, but I really like that there’s no mess and I just enjoy using the computer and designing pages.

I don’t have these scrapbooks that are totally up to date, but I work on them when I can. I also use both my paper scrapping stuff and my digital scrapping stuff for card making and such, so I know the investment in supplies has not gone to waste. 🙂

At the top of this post you can see a sample of a digital scrapbooked “card”. Originally, it’s 4×6 in size. I can print it like a photo and adhere it to cardstock folded like a card. This one will probably get printed and put in a little 4×6 album of mini pages of our family.

Any time you see something like this on my blog I created it myself, unless I give credit to someone else.

Some of my favorite scrapbook sites are:

Shabby Miss Jenn Designs

Shabby Princess

Two Peas in a Bucket

Scrapbooks Etc.

    Congrats on your success of finishing the c25k program!!! I might jump ship on the galloway method and try the c25k (actually I think they are very similar)…I am finishing the first week of running/walking 15 minutes, and tomorrow I run my mile, but I run a mile in 11 minutes now so I'm not sure if a mile is supposed to take me longer or what…kinda confused about that.
    I am also a scrapbooker although I have never tried the digital SBing. I have many 12x12books but lately have been having fun with mini4x4 and acrylic mini albums. Love how your got for it 5k page came out!!


  2. Leah, I am really proud of you! This is one thing I really want to accomplish this summer. It is pretty cool how you incorporated your secret into your announcement too.
