Still keeping it up.

I've kept my health decisions so far.

Finally I've stopped smoking and I also do my Monday workouts each week. Today I even went out for an extra workout. I really feel this will work well for me and I'm so happy for it. The only thing I need to watch out for, is to not gain extra weight during this process.
I know from earlier that stop smoking has a tendency to end in gaining weight.

I made this piece to illustrate the addiction. I was told that a center in our brains ( addiction center) has a spot that can be compared with a nest filled with nestlings constantly craving food. My piece is more or less illustrating my situation for the time being. I am stubborn though, and know I have to win over my own cravings and that gets easier for each day now.
So, my focus has changed to be aware of what I put in my mouth instead. I know I can do it and everything is pointing towards my victory. Yay for me!

This piece is made using the technique  I learned in Magazine to Masterpiece class, thought by Roberta Laliberte. I'm very happy with the result, and of course, it has a special meaning for me.
Coming Friday I'll show you another one I did, it seems now that you all are done with your face month, I've started mine.
Well, just wanted to make things official and let you know what I've been working to overcome.


  1. Love this beautiful woman portrait. Very sensitive face.
    Waiting for the other one xx

  2. I love this face, those eyes are amazing! You should be so proud of yourself. To stop smoking is apparently one of the hardest addictions to break! My parents tried several times to no avail. Hopefully you can replace smoking with creative time... and good for you noticing what you put in your mouth...that's half the battle... when you go to put food in your mouth ask yourself...could I eat an apple right now.... that might help... Wonderful work as always!

  3. This makes me think of Cinderella as a brunette, although it means something more bothersome to you! Good luck with the quitting, it's a good thing!
