Two years ago, I was going to workout at the local rec centre 3-4 times per week and loving it. I wasn't at my lowest weight after my weight loss (I had gained back a few pounds) but I was feeling good.
Fast forward a little bit to May 2006 when Dad died. The wheels fell off my bus and my regular routine of the gym (now a solid 3 days a week) slowly died off.
I've attempted to get back at it several times, succeeding in a week or two or three and then giving up again.
But today was the day.... I went back... Maybe not the smartest move after our first Tae Kwon Do lesson of the year last night, but I was feeling good this morning and decided it was time. I didn't do a tonne... 20 minutes on the treadmill (I have to work my way back up to running a little) and then about 20 minutes worth of abs and arms.
Tae Kwon Do... I never thought I'd say this but I have fun with it! It started out as an activity I could with my boys last fall. I wasn't totally keen on it but I really wanted Matthew to do something active a few nights a week and the only way I could get him to go was to do it too. The three of us did it twice a week until May when classes finished for the summer. Over the summer Bruce and I have become good friends with the instructor and his wife (theirs is the puppy we babysat a few weeks ago).
This year it's a little different... the three of us are no longer beginners. And Bruce has joined as well.
My muscles weren't at all stiff this morning... that is until after I worked out at the gym.
Tomorrow could be interesting.
This card was created with inspiration (and a card design) that I saw on Cambria's blog. I only had a picture of the card with me at my stamp table, and that was the picture of the card closed... so I missed out on the one design element that I thought was really cool originally. My circle is on the outside of the card... hers is on the inside.
The day I made this card, I found myself struggling to put it together. Nothing really caught my eye or tickled my fancy, so not my best work.
Unfortunately (for you) I am unable to find my cheat sheet with all the items used on this card. So you'll have to use your imagination LOL!
I can tell you (although you can't really see it on the photo) that I used my Sakura Stardust Gel Pen along all of the Cuttlebug embossed swirls to add a little extra pizzaz to the card front.
Thanks for blurfing by! (that's a term I learned from Allison... blog + surfing = blurfing!)
