One thing that I like to do to help remove stress from the week and break up my routine is arts and crafts.
I took a class Friday on working with wood. Here is my blank canvas
A stained look after a little sanding. A grainy piece but I like the imperfections.
One hiccup, do not go by the cut out, but rather the words or your piece will be slightly tilted.
Removing the tape…
Do not forget to color your words… “A little color and a little bit of paint makes my canvas what she ain’t.”
Removing the stickers
What a finish… “Be in love with your life. Every minute of it.” Jack Kerouac

Hi, I am Kristi, I'm a mother, wife, full time job holder and a runner. My story with running and exercise starts in 2008 when a friend convinced me to go running as a means to lose a few pesky pounds. I did and I hated every minute of it but I stuck with it and started seeing some change in my appearance. Slowly my love-hate relationship with running became something I treasured and actually looked foward too.
Soon after I met my sweet husband and a few years later I was pregnant. My journey with running had continued and grown and even ventured out into other facets of excersie. I was determined to stay active and healthy in my pregnancy and took all the necessary precautions to make this possible. I ate lean meats, excersied everyday, continued to run until I was in my second trimester (it became uncomfortable for me) and gained only the recommended 30 pounds. However as life does occasionally she threw me a curve ball. In my last trimester I had problems with blood pressure and subsequently was bed ridden and hospitalized for the remainder of my pregnancy. My sweet love was born healthy and happy and is a very much okay today.
My world was on a whirlwind disaster coaster for over two years and in the midst of my choas I gained an additional 20 pounds, struggled with my postpartum depression, and almost lost my sweet family.
Luckily for me I began to get a grip on my fading sanity and started turning my tumultuous life right side up. I have slowly began becoming the person I was in 2008 and loving my life once again.
This is my journey to a fit life and lifestyle. My rode to running again and hopefully we be of some help for others struggling.
