Today marks a month into my weight management journey, I've decided to make a commitment to eating healthy and exercising regullary. Every week I see my Amcal weight management consultant and she weighs and measures me and takes my body fat reading. She also answers any questions I have about the program. So far I have lost 4.5kg. When I think about it, that's massive. Think about carrying 4 x 1kg bags of rice around all day, when I do I think boy oh boy! Just looking at 4kgs of rice makes me exhausted!
Though I have more energy from losing those rice bags, I still have been finding it difficult to get going of a morning and get the creative juices flowing because I have been sore and have had tired muscles. As you may know, it takes a lot of energy and focus to paint. I have to keep telling myself just to start and the rest will happen, because once I'm doing it, it's hard to stop (a bit like exercising, the first step on the treadmill is the hardest).
So here's my progress on my self portrait:
Time to pick up the paint brushes and push some paint around, wishing you all a productive day! Tracey xx
