Project Life | Week 1

How is everyone? Are you getting into the swing of life now that the first week of January has passed. I feel like this past week has allowed us to plan for some changes, like eating healthy and taking lunches to work... getting out the gym bag and making a concerted effort to working out - which I managed to do three times this week! That is my goal to Move More and Eat Well as per Cathy's class. Well... actually she has asked us to pick one thing to work on for January and for me that will be exercise.

What about you are there any health related goals you are signing up for this January?

Okay... moving on... I finished my Week 1 of Project Life and thought I would share it tonight.

 This is the cover page and I loved how it turned out. One thing I am trying to remember here is to keep it simple.

Not too many photos this week to share, but I like how this allows me to add little bits that I may not  put on a scrapbook layout. I love the advertisement of the new Nello's restaurant (southside) and kept it for PL. We went on Friday night and it brought back so many memories of all the dinners we ate at Il Pasticcio when living downtown. I had the Saporito Chicken salad and some wonderful mussels.
And with that I am signing off dear friends! Have a great week :)

P.S. happy birthday Mom & Dad!!

  8. I'm taking MMEW too, and my "one thing" was also to get back in to the groove with exercising. So far, so good! Good luck with your goals.

    I love your Project Life pages! I've been on the fence about this, but maybe I will jump in!

  10. Love this Ginger! Good job on your MMEL goals. I am loving the class so far but was hit with a terrible cold right before New Years. Just trying to get well right now. Will catch up as soon as I am feeling better. And hope to catch up in PL too. Sad that illness makes getting every done that much harder. Good luck this week on your 1 thing!

  12. We're getting back into the swing of things here, too. I'm taking Cathy's class but have really only had time to read the handouts. I'm working on drinking less Coca-Cola as my one thing this month (I've only had three from Jan 2-today), but Robbie & I both have reduced portions and began exercising last week (3 days for me, too).

    Your PL looks so nice - I really like all those happy colored papers.
