The Artist Diet

It's my new diet, ha ha... the logic goes "hmmm...pork rinds, or new pencils? Bon bons, or brushes? Expensive energy drinks, or new colors of paint?" The spouse is on board with this too, she has the artist bug. We even got outside and went to a park and drew some trees. I put that on my DeviantArt too. I had a problem with the "reward yourself for good eating" but then again maybe I just hadn't found the right reward. Movies? Flowers? Spa trips? meh. Art materials? Woohoo!

WTG Roh! If it works for you then keep on keeping on down to your ultimate goal! My idea of reward is Landscaping. I make little mini goals and when I reach the goal .. I get a new plant for the yard.

If at First, You don't Succeed, Try, Try Again!!!!

Failure is not an option when Success requires just a little more effort!

Being poor helps, Itsashayduh! (smile) My drive to buy art materials takes up the money that I would normally waste on junk food of whatever type.
