Impromptu Confession

I've been talking about getting Professional photo's taken of me and my art for online use on Facebook, Twitter, etc,etc. But for now I these will do.  My husband was the photographer and for his first time using my camera I believe he did pretty good.  He swears he doesn't have a artistic bone in his body so for him to help me out by trying to do his best with these photos is a big deal. Now I know that they are a bit out of focus but I'm going to use them and besides I think it adds to the Artsy Vibe that I live for.
~ Thanks Hubby for being there for me ALWAYS.



 We were playing around making it fun, he was a little tense cause he wanted to make these great for me.
 Sexy moma... Well I try, "Work It," as they say.
Confession: I've Stalled, I have 40 MORE pounds to loose.

...been stalled for the summer when I should have been going strong.  But committing right now to "Digging Deep" and getting back to being Focused on the goal at hand.

I made some videos of me exercising, talking about the struggle I still have to being motivated to exercise but I have not uploaded them to my YouTube channel (yet), maybe I will get the courage to do so, just to help motivate someone else.  I originally got motivated (to loose the first 40lbs that i lost) through a combination of things one being that I was "tire of being tire."  And the other being straight vanity... I had morphed into the "fat dude in the little suit," not a good look.  And Youtube played a part too with all the exercise guru's along with people like you and me video taping there journey.

Although I feel much better, unfortunately for me that just isn't enough for these next 40lbs I will shed.  PRAYER, PRAYER, PRAYER and meditation is always part of the equation.  But for me I need to mix it up so my physical exercises will be concentrating on learning Yoga and also
Kickboxing with some of my old workout videos thrown in every now and then when I need a change.  I have been researching Billy Blanks, it's funny but before the forty pound weight loss I would have NEVER thought I would consider one of his rigorous workouts but I believe I can handle him now... Yikes!!  And as for doing Yoga in the past, that was a no-go just looked to boring but now I really want the flexibility and the contrast of these two types of work out will keep my body in loosing mode (weight that is).
In my Healthy living, conscious eating struggles I have gained back 5lbs, mainly in my stomach.  And although it is only a five pound gain, I have also noticed I am softer, meaning the muscle definition that I had worked for is barely noticeable anymore.  
Just two blog posts ago I was rejoicing and now I am putting this out there to confess and "Get Right."
Healthy Conscious Eating and Commiting to DAILY exercise is the only way for me, I declare.

Tracey, you look fabulous and have just motivated me to get back on the treadmill and lose a minimum of 15 lbs.

Your paintings are so vibrant - wonderful! And did you make that jewelry for your daughter? Multi-talented!
Thanks for sharing.
