Pin 2 – Motivational Marbles

Good Morning!  I still cannot believe how much rain we had last night….you’d think after months and months of rain I wouldn’t be surprised anymore.  Kevin went to check the basement before we went to sleep and glanced outside in the back yard….it had started to flood!! Luckily this morning all the standing water is gone.

Today’s pin Motivational Marbles comes from the blog of Hot Mess Princess who got it from Pinterest!!! This could go on and on….:)

I decided I wasn’t going to buy any marbles and I had 2 tall cylinder vases from our wedding reception sitting in a box.  A friend of mine said she used baby food jars and pennies.  Of course! I have lots of pennies.  So I got my pennies and put them in the vases….wow….didn’t look like much.  I needed something smaller so it actually looked like there was something in the vases, was I going to have to go buy marbles to be happy?  No, I told myself, you can find something in this house! So back to the basement I went in search of something when all of my canning supplies caught my eye! Here is what I came up with:

In case you’re wondering…currently there are 124 pennies in the pounds lost and 32 in the pounds to go!

  1. So proud of you girl! You have been a motivating force to many of us on FB with your recipes and exercise updates and zest for life! I may have to start a penyy jar also. Doing a food log right now on calorie count.
    Love ya!

  2. What a wonderful spin on Motivational Marbles! 🙂 Thank you for the mention…and congratu-freak’in-lations on those 124 pennies, girl! That is an inspiration to me! I’m so proud and happy for you. And I love the financial reward aspect of jars like these. I wish they were dollar coins…then you could go buy a new outfit when you hit your goal weight. 🙂

    Congratulations on a job well done, my butt battling sister of fat fighting!

    • Thanks so much Dianne!! Your motivational marbles are way prettier though!!! LOL 🙂 I was thinking the same thing (about the financial reward)…I should really put some quarters in there or dollar coins would be even better! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
