Creating a Motivational Collage

Sunday, July 01, 2012

I have been with SP since Jan. 2011 and never did a motivational collage until now. I had all kinds of excuses like " I don't need one, don't have magazines where I could find the right pictures, and I don't know where I would put such a thing." The bottom line was that I just felt foolish doing it and I did not want to take the time. Okay, okay, the real truth~I did not want to make the bold statement.

Well, I have been exercising faithfully now and am into week 2 of the diabetic challenge. I have not lost a lot of weight but I am really not discouraged. I FEEL better and I know that I am converting fat to muscle.

Tonight I got the sudden inspiration to DO it! I had been thinking about making the collage the past day or two but tonight I did it. I am really excited about it. I had fun doing it and I am already inspired.

I entitled it HEALTH and subdivided it into 4 sections- eating well, getting the look, entering the age of healthier snacks and gaining serious strength through exercises. I included at the center of it a picture of a couple because I would like for both my hubby and I to live healthier. There is a pic on the other side of a young well built young man, because I would love for my son to get in better shape. At the botton of the page, I included a dog because I would like my dog to be more of my exercise regime so she can lose a little weight.

The only thing lacking in my picture is an important one and that is a cross, because Christ is the center of my life and He is my Rock and strength. I hope to add that to the picture of the lady meditating because we are to meditate on the Lord day and night.

I am inspired by the collage and I am sharing it in hopes that you will be too!!

    Interesting how we put the best things off and once we do it , well I was ready to do another one on a different area of getting into a healthy lifestyle.

    I did mind this year with a team member from one of my other spark teams. We try to get together once a month and do healthy things.

    Congrates on your Motivational Poster ! I have mine in my living room where everyone can see what I'm working on and this time I'm serious about the whole deal. !

    Wishing you all the blessings Our Father has in store for YOU ! He is my strength when I'm weak.
