Motivation Monday

This week I want to focus on health and weight loss. Just one week at a time.. Today I ate healthy and did 45mins of exercise earlier and after dinner the hubs and I did a 30min walk. Felt good..So my motivation for this week is to get moving anyhow and often.

well hello Change..nice to see you...

What a interesting week..Well I start my week off officially unemployed. I was “let go“ Thursday afternoon and I’m happy to say I am not the least bit bothered or upset. I haven’t been 100% honest on blogs since I started there in May. This job was not what I had hoped. I mean it had its good moments but as time passed those good moments were far and few in-between. I was having daily migraines and just general sky rocketed stress levels and for what? Sure I’ll miss the income but my health and most importantly happiness is not something I want to gamble with. Monday’s events of just utter unprofessional ism and immature actions by a “co-worker” really through me over the edge. So Thursday came as a sweet relief to the drama I’ve been enduring since May. Onward to more changes in our lives and to a brighter and better future!
To fill up the time I enrolled in an online crafting class that will force me to explore my options and work with different mediums and I’m very excited to start! Especially since I have all the time in the world to work on these projects. Also I can focus back on my weight loss..and overall health. So I welcome the autumn changes with open arms and I’m glad that we will definitely be in a better place!!

Enter to win a Janel orginal quilt..

Here is a chance to win an lovely quilt!
The colors are soo pretty!

Im back...

I haven’t blogged in like forever, I have very good reason!! I was going to school and work is... well…not as great as I had hoped when I started in May. We have a lot going on in our lives right now, lots of changes and progress. I’ve also felt the urge to do creative things, express myself and push myself to limits. To test myself and abilities..I’ve joined an online crafting class; I really can’t wait for it to start. I want to see what awesome & cute things I can create. My handmade cards for everyone’s birthday have really been gratifying I had no idea everyone would enjoy them as much as they have.
With my new found crafting kick the pants I needed Mike & I have reorganized the office and I have a dedicated craft is currently pretty baron but I do want t to fill it with awesome finds. I currently am desperately seeking a old library card catalog/apothecary cabinet. A place for all my brads and knick knacks. I did find an awesome one from Yale University’s Library, however it way more than I’d like to spend. Then there is this unique and absolutely fabulous antique Chinese one that’s beyond my means but a girl can be inspired!! =)

Just bask in the awesomeness!! The blue is sooo cute!!

My goals this year is learn new mediums, I want to learn embroidery, and crocheting and just be as creative as possible. I told mike I want to make all our present for the holidays this year handmade and he just gave me a funny look. I really do want to make as many as we can..if they love my cards so much then they’ll love my presents right? (I hope) LOL

SO here I am back to blogging and hopefully stay powered..
