Tonight, I experienced some of that same sense of fun when I completed my "Sparktask" -- making a collage that expressed my weight loss, fitness, and motivational goals for the coming year. Here's mine:
There are a few things that I think are notable about this collage. First, it's very word-centric. There are not many images at all, which really reflects how my brain works. I'm not a visual learner and I'm not drawn to images in the same way that my siblings are -- they are all really great artists. I only have two images in the entire collage, which I think defeats the purpose of collage -- not sure. The images I've included are of a middle-aged woman walking with the caption "I live to look good and feel better" and of a walking shoe. Everything else is purely textual.
Some of my favorites are:
"Make today fun." "History Repeats Itself" with "Repeats" crossed out. 5K to 10K (a big goal for me this year). "How good can you feel?" and "Food for thought: Spread the joy".
I think it's interesting that while some of these texts refer to exercise, only one refers to food -- "You're thinking about everything you eat". In fact, most of them refer to attitude and motivation. Because I was drawn to these texts, I think I'm telling myself something -- motivation motivation motivation is key. I'm posting this in a prominent place so I can be MOTIVATED every day!
