Need to Balance Calories, Exercise & Work

Thursday, February 20, 2014

A great Spark Goal for me would be able to balance my daily calories, exercise and art work. Today I did two out of three. Darn...I have to do bills and housework sometime too. I like the reflective time on Spark to be able to learn, grow and share.

Hardy breakfast--egg, sausage, fruit, latte, water

Morning painting work: "Mosaic Pear"...Wow, this was a project choosing colors by their correct values to create a pear. I decided to do mine in quadrants and make four pears. It was so much fun and I'm pleased with my result.

Light lunch- vegetable soup, water, tea
Shared lunch with art workshop friends:)

Afternoon painting work:
I made a value sketch of tulips in a vase.

I'm still working on the finishing touches of some other paintings.
My hand busy at work....

NO WALK TODAY:( Just standing all day at the easel.

Dinner-red peppers, onions, chicken sausage, water
Dessert-red wine, chocolate and almonds
110 calories over. Not so bad.

Hope to paint something good tomorrow during the last day of my workshop. It has been so fun and I met so many friendly and talented artists here. Already wish I didn't have to pack up and leave our cottage tomorrow. But I'm looking forward to going to Napa Saturday to celebrate my best friend's birthday and give her the painting I made...yay!!

Happy Healthy Friday to everyone tomorrow. Boy, do I miss my scheduled exercise. I'm looking forward to attending some Zumba and walking more next week. Oh, and yes....more arm weights, arm weights, arm weights!!!

    Love the pears! The hand reminds me of a time when painting I placed my oils palette on the stool for a minute while I stepped back to view my work and when I decided where a flaw was I perched on my stool to begin the correction only to realize I just sat on my oils. My dark pants looked like your hands. Spent some wonderful hours in painting workshops. Enjoy your talent. emoticon

    Your art work is impressive. That was such a great workshop. Enjoy your trip to Napa with your friend. I know she will love the painting. It is hard to not be able to do your scheduled exercise for a few days. I would miss it also.
Way to go with healthy eating at the workshop!
