30 days of lists - day 2

Today's prompt

RESOLUTIONS THAT NEVER STOOD A CHANCE.


So here is my list 
No junk food - not even sure why I thought this would be possible, my DH tries to be nice and let me have the "night off" cooking (at least twice a week) by offering to get take out. I know it's just because he wants it - not really to be nice. I try not to cave in and let him get something I know I will regret. I have been stronger in saying no - so that's a start right???? 

Exercise 6 days a week - well I was doing pretty well last year... Then we went on holiday. I started well for the first week of the new year then DH had to go away for work, so there went my early morning runs as I couldn't leave my 3 year old at home alone!! So I fell of the exercise band wagon, might change this goal to Exercise once a week - far more manageable.

Stop swearing - seriously who was I kidding when I thought of this nonsecnce. I mean I know I swear a little (ok a tad more than a little), I'm trying to cut back - but sometimes things happen and it just feels right to say F$&k IT!!

Anyway those were my long winded excuses for not sticking to my resolutions. Next years resolution - DON'T MAKE ANY!

30 days of lists - day one

So I was browsing my way around Instagram this morning (as you do at 5.20am on a Sunday when you're the only one awake), when I stumbled across the hashtag #30lists. I had to know more about this so followed the links to the website www.30daysoflists.com, after 7 minutes of looking around I was hooked - signed up right here and then! 
I have been looking for a new project to get stuck into and this was just too perfect 1. I LOVE LISTS, 2. I needed a new project, 3. It was starting today, 4. Did I mention I love lists.
I went down to Officeworks and picked up an art journal along with some super cheap water colour paints ($5 in the kids section - bargain) and set to work on my title page.  


With it still only being the 28th February in America, I had to wait a few more hours until the prompt for today was released, I decided I was going to do my 30 lists in "junk journal" style - having never done one of these before I thought it would be fun (plus I could play with some goodies that have been laying around unused and feeling neglected) 
I stamped, I painted, I got out the thickers, stickers and coloured pens and just had FUN! I love how it turned out (totally different from my usually work)

Anyway 6pm came and it was time for the prompt of the day - eagerly refreshing the website it finally came up 

WHY I MAKE LISTS 

So here is my page for this prompt - I used a Project Life journal card, added some stickers for a tile then just listed my thoughts - it was so simple. 



I will be back again tomorrow with day 2's prompt and page.
