Creative : the idea to make my own personal Project Life-style album came about a couple weeks ago when I was really trying to come up with a plan on how I was going to document this "I Choose" journey. Some goals just aren't going to be worthy of a layout or a full page in a minibook, but I felt like I wanted a place to write about it nonetheless. Plus, I'm taking Cathy Zielske's Move More Eat Well class and I wanted somewhere to keep track of my progress there. To be honest, I felt kind of awkward devoting an entire album to just my health and fitness goals. This little album is really just going to be a collection place for leftover journaling cards that I loved from the Studio Calico kits, pretty papers, inspiring quotes and notes from the projects I mentioned above. It's where I'll choose to do more personal, diary-like, journaling rather than in my family's Project Life album. I know it sounds totally vague right now, but I'll share bits and pieces of what I've gotten done so far later this month.
Routine : once my kids are in bed and I'm finished getting ready for the following day, if I feel like vegging for the evening, I often do it in front of the computer screen - reading blogs, checking Pinterest, message boards, drafting a blog post. This month I'm going to choose to spend that 'veg time' with a book instead of my laptop. I have a pile of books I haven't touched and I'd love to read at least one of them this month.
Health + Fitness : this one is pretty straightforward. I jumped back on the 30 Day Shred train last week and I want to stay on through February. Funny how a tropical vacation can motivate you to lose a little flab.
My monthly I Choose posts + projects are inspired by Elise's I Choose class at Big Picture Classes. You can read all of my 2013 I Choose posts here. The journal that I'm using to document my ideas can be found here.
