One of my hobbies is adult coloring! I loved coloring as a kid, and it’s fun that it’s become a thing now that I am older. I’m not the best or most creative at adult coloring, but I enjoy it all the same. It is fun and engaging.
In this first picture. I like the white space in this cherry picture, so I decided to leave it as. 🙂 My inspiration was ranier cherries that grow in Washington.
Next is a picture of sunflowers. They are my sister-in-law Katie’s favorite flower, and they remind me of her.
Here is the last page, which just finished. I thought red would be perfect for the swirly background!
And here is the coloring book I used! It is an older book, no longer in print, but there are lots of other fun ones out there!
I have been going to my local gym for the past 5 weeks, and am having a blast. I have tried out several fitness classes -cardio dance, pilates, barre, water aerobics, yoga and cycling/spinning. One of my favorite classes is spinning class!
The workout is super intense, but the endorphins I feel afterward are so worth it. I leave drenched -and happy. I feel proud of myself, knowing that I pushed myself and took care of my body.
A Few Tips:
Work your way into the class. Teachers will push you hard, and the class can be super competitive. Make sure, however, that you don’t push too hard, especially if you are just beginning. Injuries can happen if you work too hard too fast.
Have your instructor help you adjust your bike to your body. I didn’t do this, and my hand went numb as a result (my handlebar was too low, and I was placing all my weight on my hands.) Now, having the right settings, I am getting a more efficient workout, and my hands feel fine.
Bring a water bottle and stay hydrated!
Also, bring a hand towel to mop your face and keep the handlebars dry. You will sweat a lot.
If you are looking for an effective workout, cycling/spinning fitness class is a great choice!
Dr. Teal’s is one of my favorite brands for bath products. I especially love their Epsom salts. I decided to try one of their bubble bath bottles -I chose Glow & Radiance.
As far as bubble baths go, this bottle worked nicely. The bubbles were nice and frothy, and lasted for my entire bath. I loved the gentle citrus scent -it was nice & relaxing. The bubble bath moisturizing without causing any irritation (I have very sensitive skin.) It didn’t leave any residue on my skin or the tub, which was nice too.
