Project Life-ing

I think it was all the cute journal tags and page layouts that people on Pinterest kept pinning which made me want to start Project Life this year. I'm easily pleased, what can I say. This is in addition to Project 365, I know, I'm crazy, but I'm up for the challenge.

So, here's my title page.

As you can see, Kate looks thrilled to be helping me out with this task!

And since this is going on my 2013 resolutions list, I might actually complete it! Well maybe, I've set myself some hard tasks this year, but that's another post for another day.

Another year over,

a new one just begun.

1 year ago to the day, I posted this layout: Resolutions 2012.

Did I achieve all I set out to?


1. Train for Blackmores Half.

I didn't specifically train for the Blackmores Half Marathon, but I did run one in a training session. So, I say, yes, I can tick this off.

2. Finish my crochet blanket.

Nope. Not even close.

3. Run in the City to Surf.

Check! I crossed the line in 1hr 19mins.

4. Attempt Project 365.
I was not very good for the first half of the year, but I got into the groove in the second half. So yes, I definitely attempted it!

5. Finish my patchwork quilt.
See No. 2.

6. Get fit and lose weight.
Yes and yes!

7. Read at least 35 books.
I ended up reading 40 books, so, yes, mission accomplished!

8. Eat less chocolate.
It took me six months, but I went cold turkey for about 2 months. I now eat far less chocolate than I ever did. I don't need to eat it every day like I used to. I'm really happy I broke this habit!

9. Drink more water.
At the same time I gave up chocolate, I also gave up diet soft drinks. Now, I barely ever have a soft drink. Mineral water is my new thing. My body loves me for it too!

The finally tally: 7 out of 9.

My best year yet!

But now, I have to think about my 2013 Resolutions.
