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.

  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!
