I bought myself an elliptical training machine thing. It was second hand and very cheap. The machine sits on our deck, so doesn't take space inside the house.
Why subject myself to this torture? Well, I need to lose weight. Other people looking at my photo may be generous and say there's no problem. But I know what I used to weigh in the past and I know what fitness activities I was capable of in the not-too-distant past.
The impetus to get the machine and start exercising regularly came from seeing photos of myself during the days when Dobby got sick and died. What was once muscle, particularly upper body, is now flab. I decided it was time to exercise my feelings instead of eating them.
My aim is to use the machine everyday. By making this public on my blog, I'm trying to add some accountability to my aim.
Here's me and my machine. Notice the stylish footwear - socks and Crocs!
And now to today's Diva challenge. The Diva introduced us to the tangle Tri-bee.
Here's what I came up with.
|Tri-bee, Tipple, Static, and Printemps|
|Tri-bee, Finery, Shattuck|
|Tri-bee, Jetties and random swirling lines.|
|Tri-bee, Enmingle and Tipple.|
This wonderful method of drawing we use has the word Zen in it for a reason. This morning's challenge put me into a place of calm where I was able to put aside my worries and focus on producing some art, one stroke at a time.
I hope you like the results.
