Two for the price of one

For a little while now, I’ve had two things I want to achive. That is:

  1. getting healtier / lose a bit of weight
  2. start a new photoproject

It didn’t take me long to see that I easily could combine these two. As a part getting healtier, walking is a key. I need to walk more. Maybe running would be better, but I HATE running and I wouldn’t be able to combine running and photographing. So I was thinking ‘why not take photos when I’m out walking’? There isn’t really a reason not to.

I’m planning two competitions.

1.

Losing weight. It’s hard to lose weight on your own, so I’m starting a competition with my friend Linda again. This time the deal is to lose the most weight in 3 months. The one who loses, has to give the other 350 NOK to buy clothes for. No date are set yet, but I think we’re gonna start soon. Maybe next week?

My plan is to walk way more than I now and since I need to take a photo each day, I will get a lot of excercise! I’m also going to eat less candy / icecream. We’re heading into summer now and I eat less chocolate during the summer. But I eat a lot more icecream… It’s going to be hard.I think the key is to just not buy anything! If there isn’t any temptations around, I won’t be able to eat it.

I think I will try eat more berries, like strawberries and raspberries. They can replace the icecream / chocolate.

2.

A 3 month photo-project. I will be taking one photo each day. This challange will start tomorrow. It will be a summer 2010 theme since it will go from June to the end of August.

The last days I’ve been hooked on diptyches, which I am now and then. So I was thinking that at least one, maybe two days in one week, I will do a diptych. I just love to tie two photos together.

I’m quite excited about this photo project.

I’ve already thought about making a book out of it, but I’m not sure. I haven’t finished the door book yet… Things need to be more organized this time, if I’m gonna make a book. I would need to work on the book each week. We’ll see.

Wish me good luck on both projects! I know I will need all the luck I can get!
