Happy Friday! A Feature, a Sneak and an Exercise Update...

Woo Hoo!!  As you can see I was a February Favourite 
at Scrapbooker's Anonymous with this layout, which I 
entered in their A - Z stash challenge - Letter G - by
scrapbooking my GIRLS using GLITZ DESIGN!


Seeing as things may have been a little dull around
 here this week, I have a sneak to show you which
I can only reveal in full on Thursday next week.  

I have tried very hard to have a really productive scrappy 
week but it has been so crazy that the week seems to have 
lasted about 5's difficult catching time in 
my studio between everything that goes on around
 here all day.  

My gym routine is still going strong although I haven't had the 
time to really get to grips with a strict diet.  I have lost 
quite a few centimetres and a few kgs at my last weigh 
in, not to mention that going out, chatting to people in the
 gym and simply exercising has enhanced my life no end
 this year.  I am so glad I made the resolution to change to 
an active lifestyle for 2012 & I don't see myself ever giving 
it  up now.  Even hubs has got all competitive and joined
 me! So!! - it's on like Donkey Kong! HAPPY WEEKEND!!

Yay! that's exactly what I found when I started at the gym too - I gained so much that had nothing much to do with my weight. It's great huh?! And Glen joined me too, which was a fab outlet for him, and gave us a wonderful new interest to share together. So happy for you:)

What a beautiful page - congrats!

dstandard said...

Oh and good for you on the gym. I'm an avid exerciser - walk and run about 5-6 miles every day I'm off and try to get to the gym a couple of times a week although this does lag - my daughter is work-out-aholic and dietician and she's always on me - made me a four page workout that I'll never in a million years be able to conquer but I try the basics. Seems she just doesn't understand that being almost 40 years older than her IS truly and excuse not to have her body!
