Creating an Action Plan by @schulmanArt, Miriam Schulman
|What my art journal looks like now...|
Did I tell y'all that one of the first things I did this year was dump my monthly weight watcher's plan? Yep! I save $15 every month not paying weight watchers for the complicated etools I wasn't using. Instead, I invested the money into some great online art and business classes that I AM using. That doesn't mean I am letting my self go... I did get a free app that my friend told me about called fitness pal that helps me track calories. Exercise has never been a problem for me as I like to get out and go take a group exercise class a few times a week; however, as my family ages, I find that I spend less and less time on my feet. I am in my car, that is for sure, but I no longer have to walk my kids into their schools and places. So although I exercise, I find that I am sitting way too much during the day. Therefore, I decided I needed to make sure I got 20 minutes of outdoor time everyday. This has been easy during all the snowstorms as I just grab a shovel and dig in the snow for 20 minutes until my son gets embarrassed and comes outside to finish the job.

I also have other work goals I am trying hard to keep in front of me. Sometimes, they slip away... not because I don't want them...but I get scared. I really want to submit my portfolio to publishers and also get some licensing contracts. However, I know that with acceptance comes rejection. So I am trying to keep the actions, the baby steps I need to succeed in front of me.
