project life 2014: week 35

Week 35 is actually my week one of project life 2014. It was a great week to start out. I know I'm really going to enjoy this project for the rest of the year.

I'm doing my weeks from Monday through Sunday because I like to keep the weekend together. 

This week: August 25-August 31

This week was special for a couple of reasons. First of all, I got a fitbit over the weekend and decided that I needed to take it for a spin the first week and get at least 10,000 steps per day. When I'm not shooting, it seems like I spend most of my time at my desk, so the only way that it is realistically going to happen for me is if I go out to the trail with Ayron before he goes to work. I was up Monday through Friday at 5:45am and at a bit more of a leisurely time on the weekend and I knocked it out of the park! Here were my step totals:

Monday: 10,942
Tuesday: 10,272
Wednesday: 10,237
Thursday: 11,671
Friday: 15,278
Saturday: 11,013
Sunday: 13,948

I decided to document this for my project life with my middle row, taking a photo of my feet at a different spot on the trail each day. Monday through Thursday, this was on a wonderful trail near my home, and Friday through Sunday, it was in my hometown in Iowa. The fitbit combined with my documentation motivated me so much! What a blast. 

It's a shame that you can't see the starry sky in the photograph better. It is tough to get pictures of these with their shiny pages!

I love using instagram to capture small moments throughout the week as well, and I love that I can transfer my instagram photos into this book. It motivates me to utilize the medium more and inspires me to look at the world differently.

  1. I love this! Also, how do you cut the round corners? Do you have a specific size/brand/ cutter that you use? I'd love to buy one.
