There’s something about the beginning of a new year that makes it the perfect time to set some goals and perhaps make some positive changes in your life. I would love to lose 15 pounds, but I’ve had no desire to do anything about it until now. Today, I’m starting an online class called Move More, Eat Well Jumpstart. Sounds good, right?
This class is being offered at Big Picture Classes and I have taken about six workshops with them. I love their classes and the format that they’re in. I am NOT receiving any marketing fees or promotional points for this recommendation. I’m just passing along a tried and true website that I have found value in.
To be honest, I do have an ulterior motive for mentioning this. I’m holding myself accountable by putting this out there for all to see. And who knows? Maybe I’ll be an inspiration or a motivator for someone else with similar health/weight concerns.
I needed to be inspired myself, and I think this class is the ticket. It’s one month of daily emails and activities. If you’re reading my blog, you probably are the creative sort. This class is full of creativity! It’s scrapbooking and journaling and motivation all rolled into one. Here’s an example of some of the journaling prompts that I’m filling in:
This isn’t a strict diet or exercise program, but a creative guidance system to help you make your own healthy choices become a reality. The hardest part for me is taking my measurements, getting on the scale and taking a picture of myself. No, I won’t be sharing those numbers or that picture with you. I’m just not ready for that and I’m sure neither are you! But I will fill you in on my progress over the next month.
Speaking of fresh starts, I’m always tweaking with my blog, and if you read my posts in a RSS feed or by email you might want to go to The Crafty Quilter and check out my latest look. It seems like I’m getting ready for spring!
I’ll also be starting a new series called, “Let’s Talk”. This will be an open forum style format about anything worth talking about, and of course it will be quilt-related! I’m going to start with a discussion about pressing seams in the near future. I’d be happy to take ideas, too!
And if you’re a member of The Quilt Show, you’ll be able to see me in my very own classroom as your 2014 BOM Specialist! The first month’s video is already up and I’m so
nervous excited! This year’s quilt is an alphabet sampler designed by Janet Stone. It’s got all of my favorite components: piecing and applique.
I’m really looking forward to 2014! Thanks for your continued support and positive feedback. I am so lucky to be a small part of your creative life!
