ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSES!!!- Nope, not one!

Thursday, January 22, 2009



I am about to embark on the largest job I've ever taken on. In fact, I've been working on it for weeks-- painting 10 Georgia wildflowers in only 5 weeks. (My paintings take a minimum of two weeks each to create.)

I've been researching for weeks, trying to find the photos and get permission from the photographers (no finding the flowers blooming this time of year.)

Now, I'm ready (almost) to hit the studio and begin painting.

I didn't want to allow my busy schedule to be an excuse for not getting a work out in so I went to purchase the following:
(2) 10-lb hand weights
(1) Exercise Pilates Ball
(1) Exercise Mat
(1) Step-stool
-- I already have the stretch-bands

Now, I can wake up and do a quick work-out before hitting the shower and won't have the complaint of drive-time added to my schedule.

ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSES-- even 10-minutes is better than nothing!!!

    You can do it! You are very self motivated, to be self taught ,so I am sure you will do fine without the Gym.

    I am glad to hear that you are not going to give up exercise while you work on this time consuming Art project. Balance, is important.

    Make your exercise plan - work your plan , if the plan don't work out then make as many revisions as necessary. You can do it!

    Way to go!!! Whooo Hoooo! I bet you will even feel more energized for your creative work after working out.
    I am also imagining your positive attitude when you walk into your studio to paint.
