I want to say life has been busy, but that would be lying. It’s just been exhausting. Every day of the week seems to have motive for the day, work, or another job (yes, because I’m currently working two) or something else in between. I’ve recently decided to sign up for the gym. I used to go some time ago, and like every time I try the only thing that gets slimmer is my wallet. This time, no more… and I have to say, I think I’ve been doing pretty well. Not really about results, because I’m far from that, but I’m actually sticking to picking up the habit.
The first day I think I went in just a little too hard on all that motivation. I ran for about 30 minutes, and worked on my arms with some dumbbells. The next 2-3 days I was in so much pain, my triceps killing me, every single time I even tried to lift up my phone. That didn’t stop me from going back, I just know that I had to pace myself. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is this body I’m trying to build.
Some inspiration did happen to come about from all this flexing. I picked up my ipad and started sketching this curly headed Minxette. I finally invested some time in making a curly afro latina, it was a little tougher than expected, but all the swirls are there, promise.
Here’s to hoping that I’m inspired by it all, more artwork and more time at the gym.
