Chores/Little Helpers

Hello Everyone.  Today the theme at My Cricut Craft Room is chores or little helpers.  I was really having problems thinking of what I could do for this.  My child is grown and out of the house so there really aren't any chores to assign and when I think of little helpers, I kept thinking of kids helping Mom/Dad with something. 
While spending A LOT of time pondering (on the back of a motorcycle for seven days). I decided that I was the one that needed the little helper.  All of my reflective thinking brought me to the conclusion that I needed to lose weight and become more physically fit. 

This is just to give you an idea of my starting point. 

When I got home, I signed up for a free on-line service that will help with meal and activity planning.  It's called SparkPeople.com.  I printed off the meal plans that where offered and realized that I needed a place to keep them organized.


So I created a binder.  Wall Decor and More had the word Health and I welded a y on to create healthy and then I used letters from the rest of the alphabets to create the Living.  "Be the change" was cut from Give a Hoot and "You're Worth It" was from Calligraphy Collection.  The saying in the middle was a rub on that I've had for a few years.




Here is one of my divider pages.  I didn't want to pop anything up because the divider pages are going into sheet protectors.  I used Pink Journey for the runner and shoes.  The dumbbells are from Everyday Paper Dolls and the words are cut from Hanna Montana. 

 I used some pearl gel to give the dumbbells some silver handles.

Here's a close up of the shoes.  They are three layers.

I have three more divider pages, meal plans, weights and measures, and receipts.  I will show them at other dates. If you are interested in having a copy of my activity log, leave a not int he comment section and I will e-mail you a pdf file.  I can't figure out how to post a pdf file here.
