Motivation Calendar

Hello!  I made this calendar which came with Sunghee's calendar template HERE from her Little Potato House store.  I love this layout and I love that it has that little box at the top.  It also comes without the box too.  The stamp is Rachelle Ann Miller from Paper Works Co.  It's our duck family.   Motivation is stamped with PTI's Outline Alphabet set.  Clouds are masked with PTI's clouds die.

Anyway, this is supposed to help motivate me to exercise!  Last year I tried to keep up with exercising and I thought I did pretty well in the beginning that is.  After about 2-3 months though, it started to fizzle out and then I got all sluggish again.  I really don't know how people can work out and actually put that into their daily routine.  So I started again about 3 weeks ago but I can't exercise everyday.  I just don't like it and I can't imagine having to do it forever to maintain a healthy weight.  Plus I just want to craft when I have time.  So I thought I'd hang this on the wall so I can stare at it while exercising.  I don't have a picture of it but I wrote down what motivates me to exercise.  Things like my health and my kids and being almost 40 years old and just kind of wrote a list directly onto the clouds area so I can remind myself to keep going even though I feel like stopping.  And I can also mark off the days that I exercised on the calendar. 

Well, I finally got my new Cinch so I'm gonna go play now.  Thanks for reading and have a great Friday!

Yes, cute calendar! At least you're exercising. I'm still at the thinking stage. Hey now, you're not almost 40! My husband was supposed to lose weight before he turned 40, that came and went. But a couple weeks ago, he started logging his food on My Food which is surprisingly helpful. I guess he was eating more unhealthy food and calories than he realized. I guess I better cook more often too so we can all eat healthier.

So cute! I need to start exercising again, too. I just don't have the energy w/ work, family and trying to stick in my crafting (to help me stay sane, lol). But I know I should, lol.
