Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Give Your Body What It Needs
Running has become quite the journey for me. I have been keeping a bit of a journal to document how my body feels during and after my runs. It amazes me what your body tries to tell you - if only you'll listen :) A week ago I went for a long run and felt terrible afterwards. My body went on strike! I was sick for an entire day after that run. I mentioned this to a friend who is a trainer at a gym and he said that my body was probably trying to tell me it needed fuel. I usually run first thing in the morning - so, in effect, I am running when my body has been fasting all night while I've been sleeping. I usually don't eat anything before heading out the door. This weekend that changed. I decided, instead, to eat some oatmeal and peanut butter before heading out. Wow! What a difference some fuel can make! Listen to your body - it is trying to tell you exactly what you need!
Here are the beginning pages of the CD Envelope scrapbook that we'll be making at this month's stamp-a-stack! I am loving these vibrant colors! I snuck in some So Tweet on board chipboard. I covered some of the pieces with paper and sponged the legs with Early Espresso ink (loving this new color!). It's a bit difficult to see, but these CD envelopes have great little pockets to insert pages in and slide things out of! I'll share a few more pages with you tomorrow! Hope you like it!
