Crafting Ireland magazine. It is either going to be in the next issue coming out on July 1st, or featured on their blog at a later date. So not too long until I can share the full project here.
Like I said in my last post, we are enjoying summer and keeping pretty busy. I placed my order for our first week of photos that are going in our Summer Project Life album. I am hopefully picking them up today so I can work on it this weekend and share completed pages next week here on the blog.
Now that it is summer, I am only planning to have new blog posts two days a week. Most likely Monday and Thursday, since those days seem to work the best with our schedule. They are also the days I do most of my blog reading. :) I may occasionally do an extra post here are there that might be non scrapbook related, but that probably won't happen too often.
As for my healthy living goals, lets just say that I am doing well with the exercise one for sure.
I have a good regiment going despite the kids being home from school, and am in fact trying to include them in exercise.
But so far this week I have also done an hour of cardio on Sunday and 30 minutes of strength training today. Tomorrow will be cardio again followed by strength training the following day. You get the idea. I am allowing one day a week off. And also throwing in yoga here and there. It feels like a good balance.
In May, I didn't do as well with fast food. After eating it twice in four months, I think I had fast food about four times just in May, and usually a Dr. Pepper to go with it. What I have learned though is that for the rest of the day after eating fast food I really don't feel so great. It's almost like my body was cleansed of it and then by reintroducing it, I could really feel the effects it had! Not good. And so here in June, I am just saying no!
My sleep goal, not so good. Up way too late every night this week so far. Most nights 12:30. And that is taking it's toll as well. I felt totally drained today despite exercising. So I think sleep needs to be a big focus for me. Sleep and less sugar!
It's kind of good to see where this journey of trying to live a healthier lifestyle is taking me. And seeing what I am capable of doing. Like push ups, man! My push ups used to be so wimpy. Now I am taking them down to the floor and back up from plank position. That feels good!
Well, I am off to get some much needed exercise, cleaning and organizing done.
Have a great weekend and I will see you on Monday! :)
