My living room has basically looked like a big sign factory for the last two weeks. Aside from that I have also worked on a few custom orders one I will be sharing today. This sign I made for a gal that I have gone to church with for several years. She and her husband are foster parents and she wanted this quote to reflect their experience as foster parents. This lady is so incredibly talented on many different levels and I was thrilled when she asked me to make this for her. I also go to take a little peek in her home as I dropped if off. I am still dying over how beautiful it is! I love going into someone else home walking away inspired to keep working on my own! Here it is.
I also have a few other signs that are quotes that my dear mother has requested. She will randomly send me a quote or saying and I have yet to dislike a single one! I wish I had more time and wood to make them all into actual signs!! So I can't take a lot of credit for picking out these sayings and phrases except for the fact that I was directly inspired by my beautiful mother! I have two more signs I will share later on that are also direct request from her but the paint is still drying! But here a few new ones and some old designs with new color options.
Enough about what I did wrong and more about what I have done right! I have still worked out in the last week more that I have in 4 years. That is definitely and accomplishment. I have never eaten this strict or healthy this long EVER sad but true. I can honestly say I had no clue what healthy eating was until now. My water consumption has also vastly improved. I weighed myself today and I am still exactly where I was when I began. I am not super discouraged by this because I know at this point these last pounds really are going to be the hardest to shed and physically I am already noticing differences in my core and my overall strength. I can do much more each time I exercise and that is more satisfying than numbers. I sometimes forget to give myself credit for the 48 lbs I have already lost since last August! It just shows me that I am really going to have to stay dedicated to make this change happen and to not get caught up in the numbers. Its so easy to do that but this process is really more about being healthy and fit and less about meeting a specific trifecta of numbers. Something I struggle with but am starting to understand more and more. That is pretty much where I am at this point. I will probably update next week and hopefully be doing better with my goals and sticking to the "plan" that is it for now
Be sure to drop by Andrada High school from 10-2 tomorrow to check out our booth and snag a few signs!
