Happy New Year and Valentine's Day Cards - Unity Stamps and Kraftin' Kimmie

Happy New Year Friends!  Did you all have a wonderful start of the year?  Honestly, I started on the wrong foot. . . .it started off with quite a few issues but I think it's settling down and maybe at this point it'll get better.  On a happier note, I actually started on a diet and fitness plan and have stuck to all of my goals for the past 5 days.  It's a good start and I'm confident I'll be able to stick with it.  I do have to come to terms that I won't be able to eat the way I have been eating for years.  I think with time it'll get easier.  I just need to remain focused.  My daughter said that I shouldn't be negative about it but I am being honest with myself. . .I think it's okay to grieve over it. . .LOL!  I can't believe I'm grieving over food. . .but it is a loss.  For example, my daughter and I were out shopping yesterday and she suggested that we stop by to eat breakfast somewhere and I told her I couldn't and wanted to eat at home.  It disappointed her and it's disappointing to me too because this is something we loved doing together but until I can get into the habit of not eating fatty food, eating out in a restaurant will just sabotage my goals.  

I was thinking of purchasing the Fitbit Flex but it's pricey so I need to hold off on it right now.  Eventually I think I will buy it but I need to work out a fitness plan first before I do.  I need to concentrate on changing my eating habit first before I can think of going on a fitness plan head on.  I don't want to burn myself out early in the game.  It's one step at a time.

Anyway, let me talk about the cards I made.  The sentiment on the card above was rubber stamped using an Inkidinkado clear stamp. The designer paper is by Stampin Up.

I used a Unity Stamps for this card.  It's a simple design but the paper design helps bring color to the card.

This image is by Kraftin' Kimmie!  This is the first time I've inked it.  I really love the Stampin Designer paper design with the little hearts.

For this card, I used Unity Stamps again.  In contrast to my previous card, this card is really busy but I like it. 

Anyway, my goal for this year is to blog more often.  Not exactly daily but maybe several times a week.  I hope I can stick to this goal.  Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Great usual! I started a new food plan myself. We are doing the Paleo Diet. We have done this before and had great results physically and medically. Strayed off in October and it has been a bad party since. I must say that the food we are eating is delish! Also started walking in our community. We are purchasing the Fitbit Charge HR. It is a new model and not readily available. Gonna be our Christmas present to each other but this allows us to save a little longer. Good luck & keep us posted on your progress!

I always enjoy your cards so much. They have lots of great details. Here today my favorite is the last one with the pretty little flower details.

Good luck on the diet. I'm making a goal to exercise more this year and have taken a walk the last 2 days so I'm off to a fairly good start.
