Blogging feels like work. I feel like I have to post and I don’t enjoy it so much. That’s stupid, I should enjoy it.

It’s because I hate to explain my projects. So maybe I’ll just stop doing what I think I should do and just do what I want to do. I’m not good with words; I never was. So I think I’ll stop trying to pretend trying.

This is a page for our wedding scrapbook. Adam and I talked on our honeymoon about things that went right and wrong. This will go after all of the pictures at the back of the scrapbook.


I typed the list and the title on regular copy paper and inked with Tim Holtz Distress inks. I added some lovely Prima flower ribbon and strips of paper cut with border punches.

I used the Movers and Shapers Butterfly dies on leftover felt from a Moxie Fab challenge for added dimension.
Stamps are Tim Holtz.

In other news, I’m going to enlighten your life with some WAY too much information: I got my period! Why am I sharing this with you like a middle school girl going through puberty? Because I haven’t had my period in a year. No, I wasn’t ever pregnant. My body just hates me.

In other not-so-TMI-news, Adam and I joined a gym and have been good! We both hate working out but we still go three times a week. We’ve been at it for four weeks or so now. I need to diet better, but those Girl Scout cookies are just so gosh-darn delectable!

When I lost weight a few years ago, I lost the weight so fast. I was expecting it to slide off this time just like last time. It’s not. I haven’t lost a pound. Well to be fair, I did lose three pounds, but then I gained it back. Last time I was actually dieting but now I haven’t exactly been doing good restricting myself. I have a yogurt in the morning, Nature Valley granola bar at 10…. And then I eat a crap-ton white pasta at lunch and it all just goes downhill from there. I have cut out most candy/chocolate and soda from my daily cravings. Goal: today, I will eat no carby breads for lunch. I’m thinking cheese wrapped in lunch meat (if it’s not expired), an orange, no Girl Scout cookies.

I will lose this weight again.


  1. Hey Grats on the period, lol. That is good news though. I am starting back into weight loss. It is such a long and slow process.

  2. To stop yourself eating that ton of pasta at lunch, try eating a couple of eggs on toast for breakfast - high protein food helps satisfy you longer and reduces the hunger pangs. Have that yoghurt for morning tea instead. Another thought for you - weight is not the most relevant measure, especially if you have started exercising more than previously. Muscle weighs more than fat - the fitter you get, the more muscle you build, you'll be replacing fat with heavier muscle (you're losing more fat than the muscle you're putting on). Use your measurements to judge your progress (waist, hips, thigh, etc), not your weight. You'll see progress! :-) And enjoy that exercise!


Thanks, mango! You're a fabulous person and there needs to be more people like you that comment on awesome posts.
