Today’s LOAD prompt is very fitting as it asks me to scrap about “the journey or process.” Clearly, I’m focused on my travel pages right now, but I think the last two days have made it clear that the journey and the company I keep are far more important than the final destination. We loved seeing the sights, but it wouldn’t have been as meaningful without sharing it with the people I love. This is one of the main reasons why I scrapbook. I get to live the experience, reflect on it deeply during the scrapbooking process, and then enjoy the memories for years to come as I look through my albums. This process is so important to me, I simply can’t understand why everyone doesn’t do it!
The prompt also mentioned weight loss journeys which reminded me of this page. In it, I documented my 45 pound weight loss journey several years ago. I went on to lose nearly 60 pounds and was so proud of myself for completing a cleanse and breaking my sugar addiction. I was working out at least 5 times a week and felt amazing. I’ve fallen off the wagon over the past few years and gained back 10 pounds. As active as we were on our trip this summer, I have been so lazy since getting home. I don’t really know why.
The good news is that my awesome neighbor is motivating me to walk with her daily. I’m going to make daily exercise a habit again so that I can feel as good as I did in these photos! I’m really thankful for Studio J, because I would not have had time to exercise and create a two-page spread each day…have I mentioned that I’m the world’s slowest scrapbooker?!
