There's always that little voice of doubt that asks: have you prepared enough? Do you really know what you are doing?
These holidays have been very different. Started off with a technology conference for a couple of days, then a few days of cleaning out the garage and doing a lot of gardening and tidying up. A few days on my own bushwalking, horse riding and driving, a few days sick with hives (ended up in Emergency one night, the itch was so bad), a few days doing school work, more gardening and a few visits to the gym in amongst it all.
Diva #313 - Earth Day
I started this tile last night, before the Diva released her challenge. I think it fits. It was one of those times where I started with a vague idea and then kept adding to the tile, very much in the Zen moment of it all.
It's on A4 card, with metallic gel blue pen, some Zen Gems (where have they gone this year?), lots of Poke Root and Flux.

We are up to the letter Q. For this challenge I used Q-Belle, with Quare and Queen's Crown. I tried to add gold-ish coloured pencils for some colour but that didn't work out so well.
Looking forward to finishing the alphabet challenges so I can get out of the diary that I've been using. The paper is soft and hard to work with. But I set myself a goal of completing them all in this diary so complete them I will.
I've been a regular at my local gym for the past months. Recently I started working with a personal trainer, Nick. While my weight is stable and not going down, my strength and fitness have been increasing to an extent I didn't think possible.
Here is my favourite piece of gym equipment. It's a sled.
What you do is push the sled from one end of the grass carpet to the other. One direction you push using the vertical poles, which is the easiest way. Then on the return you push using the low horizontal bars. It works your legs and butt very hard, as well as all those upper body muscles you didn't know you had.
I started out barely being able to push 20kg. Now I'm up to 50kg. Nick has dared me to push him. I reckon I could do that in a month or two, or maybe three. Seeing progress makes me try even harder. Loving it.
Have a great week and thanks for dropping by. Your support and encouragement does make a difference.
