WARNING THIS POST CONTAINS THE F BOMB. DON’T READ IT IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE OFFENDED. ITS ABOUT EXERCISE AND THE INNER STRUGGLE TO GET MOVING
Today, I am sharing my layout I created using the Fuck chipboard. I am a lady with the mouth of a well educated sailor from way back; although, I have toned it down a billion times and the F bomb only comes out when I am around adults. However, there are some days I scream it in my head VERY LOUD. This chipboard is me to a T.
I decided that I had to use it on a layout that captures a time when I use the word a lot in my head and that is while I am exercising. I have had three children in three years, a hernia in my belly button (that I had repaired in July last year) and stomach muscles that have separated almost as much as Australia has from the European mainland. I waited to get stuck into my excercise regime so that I didn’t cause any further injury and this began for me back in October. I started off walking for the first four weeks and slowly stepped it up to running 6.7kms every second day. Running is not something I enjoy but it can be done when I get a chance and gets results. I realised 3 months in, I hadn’t taken any progress shots of myself. I have started and stopped exercising many times before and always taken progress photos so that I could use them to motivate myself but this time I was too busy to think about it. This was the first progress photo I took – It is me already down something like 8 kilos. That is a big number but every single day I have that conversation in my head that tells me to give up, its too hard. The results are starting to be visible and it is becoming easier. I have also started Crossfit training and after the first month I can see the changes so FUCK the excuses. JUST get your arse moving. Results can only come if you are persistent.
Enough of my life story here is my layout….
I used the Fuck chipboard and the wake up and kick ass repeat and regret nothing flair. I felt these were made for motivation.
Here are a few close ups.
It may look busy but this was a really simple layout to put together. Especially because I used all the same collection of papers.
I have also put a process video on my YouTube Channel Popleopod so head over and check it out. Let me know what you thinks – Thumbs up would be good and subscribe if you’d like to see more process videos.
