I am on my third day of oil painting class and am enjoying the class. But I must say that it's hard to not do your usual routine every morning. I don't have time to walk the dogs in the morning so I miss that. DH has been doing it. But I really do miss it. I do make myself walk at the break around 1pm each day which helps a little but nothing like hiking up and down the mountain. I have complete empathy for those of you who work and fit exercise in. Our class doesn't let out until 3 o4 pm so by the time I get home I am ready for my main meal of the day. I have been doing good not snacking on all the cookies and such put out at the class. That doesn't do anything for me. And I take almonds as my snack at noon break since it's only a half hour. I would rather wait to eat a real meal until I get home. Of course I start my day with my protein drink and add some extra chia seeds to really hold me off. I do miss my regular routine though. Pushing my main meal back until 4 or 5 is doable but I am very hungry by then. Something I learned after the first day when I had a big banana and no protein for the "lunch" break is that it didn't hold the hunger as well as when I had the almonds yesterday. Big difference in hunger level....so when they say eat protein there is good thought behind that to keep hunger in control.
well off to another day of painting. Yesterday we did fishing boats today we are doing crowds at market. Since the paintings are oil we leave them to dry but when I bring them home I will take photos and share....they are not good but having fun just the same and learning which is always good.
Do have a great day.
