A few more cards made over the weekend. I stopped once I started getting “smudgy” (see last card) and making boob-boos. In the the first card, you’ll see the little lady has “proper” arms instead of my usual stick arms. This is because I totally screwed them up when drawing them and, too lazy to start over, needed to fix the problem. So I cut out proper solid arms and covered over the dicky drawn ones. So, by default, she is a plumper version of my normal Little Peeps. I should probably resolve to do all my arms this way – it might actually result in less swearing.
Day three of my new diet and exercise regime. I would say it is going so-so. I had a bit of naughty moment today where I scoffed a load of chocolate. Which is bad because a.) it is fattening, b.) I’m not supposed to eat chocolate anyway because of my kidneys, and c.) it was for other people (ie Easter gifts). So today was a bit of a fail. I did, however go for a long walk and did some weights afterwards so I don’t completely hate myself. And I kinda enjoyed it for once. One day at a time… I’m trying not to beat myself up too much about making mistakes and falling off the wagon. I started the dreaded therapy again last night so I am committing to being kinder to myself and just being a little less obsessed about dumb stuff (like my weight and appearance). Which is difficult when you’ve always been obsessed by that same dumb stuff and have let it rule your life.
A couple of friends at work today said I always make them feel better and know what to say when they are feeling down. So I am trying to be that person for myself too. I think that’s important. I’ve been my own worst enemy for too long.
Hope you’ve had a good day today – thank you for stopping by 🙂
