The Finish Line.
My apologies that I have again no art to put on this blog this morning. In my other blog I was talking about puting off the things you know you should be doing to do other things.
Well let me make a great big confession. I have not been painting nearly as much as I should be or for that mattr would like to be. I have a reason and I hope it is not an excuse.
Since taking up painting I have allowed it to almost dominate my life. I am prone to doing that. The trouble is some of the things I have been putting off is the regular excercise I used to do. Not only that I have been indulging myself in other ways.
The result: overweight. Just before going on holiday I had managed without thinking to put on two stone, for those who do not know that weight system that is 28pounds.
The picture on both blogs today is what I used to be like. I know so you do not need to say it, but at least not carrying an extra 2 stone.
I have been putting off doing anything about it and feeling so unfit. So I have decided this is a priority and I have been getting out, running and walking and more importantly indulging myself less.
Yesterday I had managed to lose 14 of those pounds so a mile marker. I am familiar with mile markers having run hundreds of marathons. So I have another two markers set down. Each for 7 pounds to get rid of the additional 14.
I know this blog is about art but can you just give me this one. Sharing this secret with you I feel will help me do it.
I will now go and paint, without the little choclate biscuit beside the coffee cup or the bottle of ale and packet of crisps.
As my other blog says. You can do anything you want if you want to bad enough.
