- 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.
- 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.
- 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:
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!!
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.
