The first thing that popped into my mind upon seeing this week's theme word at Illustration Friday: Expired, was expired milk. This was a fun one to do. I drew the original sketch, scanned it, did the line art in Illustrator and painted it in photoshop. It's supposed to be a cup of expired milk and someone making a bleh face over it .Hopefully it comes across that way :) Thanks for looking.
Oh the weightloss front, I haven't gained or lost anything so far this week. I am simply maintaining. I can deal with that :) I do still have a little soreness in my leg muscles from the evil, I mean lunges. I added the "Plank" to the ol' routine and holy hell that's hard! When the instructor on my wiifit says "10 more seconds", I wanna slap her around lol. What can I say, exercise makes me violent! I find myself looking for healthy activities to do on the weekends that have nothing to do with the Wii. So far I have played basketball (HORSE is playing basketball right?), tossed the frisbee to my kids, and played at the park. I find I don't get winded as easily (until I try to race my kids up a hill to the car that is, *insert wheezing here*.), I am thrilled with that. I also noticed that when I poke my own stomach, there is some firmness lying low under the jiggles. That wasn't the case before, I can tell you that! I see no changes to my body in the mirror. So I have to look harder to find the improvements. It's going to take time, and patience. Today I am happy to report that I continue to reach for the goal. Hope all is well in your world and that you have a fantastic day :D
