Model No Show

The model was a no show tonight for figure drawing so we took turns doing quick sketches of each other. Here are a couple.

Monica's "Body for Life" before and after

My wife entered the Body for Life challenge which she just completed yesterday. It is a 12 week diet and workout plan. I followed the diet with her but did my own workout plan and did not enter. I basically just ate cleaner and didn't want to enter the competition because I would've done my own workout plan and a stricter bodybuilding diet. It would've consumed all of my time and energy as bodybuilding show competitions have done for me in the past.

Anyway, Monica did an awesome job sticking with it and staying dedicated. As a result of all her hard work she transformed dramatically. She started 3 months post-pregnancy and ended 6 months post-pregnancy. She lost 11.5 lbs., 1"on her arms, 2.5" on her upper thigh, 3" on her lower thigh, 3.5" on her waist and 2.25" on her hips.

The key to success with this type of plan is that it isn't extreme. It's about balance, moderation, dedication. There is no starving. There is no cutting out macro-nutrients. There is no working out 2 hours a day. One eats 6 times a day and works out 6 times a week in sessions well under an hour. I am proud of her and I know that she is happy with the results. We just stocked up on the same groceries for this month as we did while eating under this plan so we will continue eating clean as we did while she was doing the program.

Frame for my drawing

I had this framed a few weeks ago and was given to my wife for our anniversary. Art Nouveau frame, 8 ply mat, and museum glass.
