It's so hard to stay motivated

The last couple of days I have had to force myself to do the exercises that I learned when I was going to physical therapy. I've been feeling pretty good so the other day I decided to just skip them for the day. WRONG choice. It wasn't horrible but I sure was a lot stiffer than I have been. So yesterday, even though I was dead tired, I forced myself to get it together and exercise. Today, again I thought about just skipping them but told myself that I just can't do it. I think I need a drill Sergeant standing over me. The reward for doing them certainly is worth it but it would be icing of the cake if it would just do a little more for me, like maybe shrinking my butt a bit.
Oh well, enough about that. This is the picture I was going to post about the other day.

I found this tutorial called "Powder pastels" I like how soft it makes the picture look.

After I was done I added an extra little touch to it. I can never seem to stop where I'm supposed to. I used the paint daubs filter on it and it really made the picture pop.

Other than my weekly cafe mom challenges I haven't been doing too much in the way of creating new things, so I don't have anything to give you today. I have a three day weekend coming up though so maybe before it's over I'll come up with something.


  1. Keep up the excercises...you know it makes sense. It's easy for me to say...I don't have to do them!!
    I love the photograph and how you worked on it, terrific results!

  2. All three pictures look great to me. I'll have to try that tutorial on a few of my pictures.

  3. When we doing our exercise, we must have a right mindset of doing it.
    Are we doing it to keep healthy?
    or, we doing it because we are healthy?
    I am doing my exercise because I am healthy and enjoy every moment of it.
    Useful editing tips!


Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
