This semester is kicking my butt as I write this. I lost a week due to migraines and I'm still trying to catch up with midterms looming over the horizon- oh joy... *sarcasm* But, I am ok, just tired.
I am enjoying my painting class. Check out the progress on my painting so far!
Decided to go with a deer dragon with an elf friend. I'm trying to get better with textures, shading, and anatomy. So I figured tossing them all in one composition would work, right?
My other classes are sadly not as relaxing as this one. You'd figure Tai Chi would be, but after being out a week I felt like I lost my "center" , my "ground"- the concentration. *sigh* I need to get back into it. The only class I truly despise out right is math. I get all the processes right, but get the wrong numbers...
Figures the last semester would be the hardest and I'm so close to being finished it hurts!
Good news is that things in my personal life are looking better and I'm healing- slowly, but getting there. I'm trying to be less anti-social and anxious; getting out there and socializing. Getting over old fears. I'm tired of hiding behind people, a wall, or a screen. If I'm going to be a bodybuilder, shynesss is my enemy!
My weight is getting somewhere, I'm gaining more muscle, but the fat is taking its sweet time melting. I've reached a fat burning plateau. I still work out at my University's gym and I enjoy it. I'm not a "cardio queen", I like to lift "heavy" (if 15-20 lbs dumbbells are heavy) with the guys. I see some girls in the weight room, but not a lot. Sometimes I'm the only girl (and the only thick one at that ). I don't mind it though; just an interesting observation. Good to have the guys' respect at the gym. The desk guy already knows me by name because how often I'm there hahaha! I'm starting a fat cutting diet & exercise thing soon. I'm nuts doing it so close to Halloween and the other fatty Holidays (Lord save me! Pumpkin pie and candy everywhere!!)
So yeah, big update, eh? I'm ok really. And I thank the people who have been talking to me online and in real life helping me through all this. You've been helping me with the stress and helping me cope while I grow. Thank you!
Keep me and my family in your prayers! God has things moving in His direction-always!
