Monday Made It

I'm sitting here on my last day of break writing thank you cards to my students. I'm also going to be linking up with Tara for Monday Made It. For my thank you cards I didn't just use any old thank you card, instead I ordered my cards from Shutterfly using a 40% off coupon. I'm loving the way they turned out. I couldn't be happier!!!! I ended up paying less than $1.00 for each one by the time I used codes and coupons. I also ordered my sister some notepads from tinyprints. I'm addicted to both sites.

I'm going to be taking more pictures soon so I can make Valentine's Day cards for our parents. 
Here is my plan:

My next Monday Made It was a home edition. I'm on a fitness kick for the new year. I'm hoping my project will help me accomplish my goals I have set for 2014. Did you set any goals?

Have you ever planned in your mind to lose weight, but your body seems to be acting on its own, craving foods you know are not what you really need? This was ME in the past. I’ve never really set fitness goals or visualized what I wanted my body to look like.
I had a friend in high school make a board of his goals and dreams. He had pictures of houses, cars, and his dream job. I never really understood how this could help him achieve his goals, but now I’m starting to think it may help me on my fitness journey.
Well, I am creating an action plan and I’m going to be visualizing myself following through. Did you know the mind doesn't know the difference between what is real and what is imagined? I’m hoping to trick my subconscious with motivational quotes and pictures of myself when I was healthy and happy.

Here is my board:

Here are the quotes if you'd like to print them

  6. I LOVE your motivation board and think it is attainable and realistic. I also loved looking through your pictures tonight from all the way back when you were a wee little baby girl. I want you to come take pics of my kids for the Valentine's card. Precious! I'll tell you what I love even more...the idea of cheeseburgers (no, that's not in your post, but I thought I'd share)...I'm hungry. Love ya!
