Stay on track

Friday, December 07, 2012

Two sushi nights in a row = a few extra pounds. It's probably just the sodium. Today I did well, but I enjoyed quite a bit of wine at painting class tonight. I don't think the scale will be back to where it was until Sunday morning.

I'm staying on track though...I continue to do my strength training and I get stronger each week.

If you do one thing to stay on track, that's enough. If you skip one day, it's too easy to skip the next. No matter what that small thing is, do it.

Now for some random stuff....

I went to a studio downtown tonight with 10 friends. We booked the studio for a painting class. For 45 dollars, we got instruction, a canvas, paints and brushes. They even provide cups, plates, napkins, etc, and we all brought wine and snacks. Had a GREAT time. We listened to classic rock using Pandora on the speaker system. We all sang and was the best time I have had in a while. I'll attempt to post my painting here (I've never posted pics in a blog, still learning things) :

Some people in the class had BEAUTIFUL paintings! I wanted to add a park bench in the foreground, but the paint was still wet and thick. It wouldn't dry in time to add it. Oh well. I am still learning. I had never painted before, so I was pleased with my finished product.

    Nice work...Art is what you feel, right? And it sounds like your method was a party!

    Sodium will make you weigh in more. But so will rice if it is in your sushi. I've been craving sushi for weeks but haven't given in, yet! Drink lots of water! That helps remove the extra sodium.

    I have no advice to give about improving your artistic endeavors. In my case whatever side of the brain is the creative side dried up to a husk a long, long time ago!

    Have a good one!
