Happy Autumn!!!
Hope everyone is having a beautiful day!
On tuesday, I got my butt kicked by my trainer! I told her, she is not a sweetheart! LOL! I was making everyone laugh in the gym. She wanted me to look in the mirror, while I was doing the exercises and I said, I look like a tomato. I was sweating so much! She said, that's good, I am getting all the toxins out of me!

She wants me to eat more, if you can believe that! Eat more in-between meals with healthy snacks, especially after exercising. She said that is the one mistake everyone does, they starve themselves and then the body holds on to the weight. So, while I was with her, she asked me, what are you going to eat, after we are finished. I said, PIZZA! She said NO PIZZA! Everyone was laughing again! LOL!

If you would have told me, I was going to be doing lunges, with 8 pound weights in my hands, a year ago, I would have told you, you were crazy!! But, I'm doing it!
She gave me a brownie recipe, that has avocados and black beans in it! When I make it, I will let you know how it is and share the recipe!

I finished two aceo's (2.5" x 3.5")
"Autumn" (It was hard to photograph this one because of the orange/red background.)

"Autumn Love"

The next painting I have started, is something totally different. I think I like it, but I'm still thinking!
Big Hugs!

  15. NO PIZZA! That's awesome. Almost as awesome as brownies with avocado and bean. Wow!

    Love where the last painting is going.

  16. Good for you taking your class! and that last painting - I LOVE ... it is very Aztec

  17. Happy autumn! For me it starts with September but by the equinox it is official for everyone. I love the pictures especially the first one.

    Regarding training I know one loses weight by eating more meals, but smaller, in a day.

  18. Oh Sweetie...I LOVE LOVE LOVE your new art!!!
    These are so stunning...:))
    Bravo on the workouts...I try to keep going too - and sometimes it just about kills me! lol
    It is a lot of fun though.
    Oh yes, please do share that brownie recipe...I just adore brownies, but every one I eat clings to my waistline.
    The notion of a lower calorie one really appeals to me!*smiles*

    Have a Fabulous Sunday!

    All My Love & Hugs xoxoxo
