I was in training in 2013 for competitions

I was in training in 2013 for competitions.  I have taken a break to paint.  When all the characters are finished painting I will get back into training for competitions.

Competitions are only to promote my books.  Training is hard.  I was up to 600 crunches a day 4 days a week and jogging the bleachers up 25 times and down 25 times, at the local high schools, 4 days a week for 4 months.  I went from 159 pounds to 114 pounds, just never could make that 113 pounds, which is my ideal weight at 5′ 2″ tall.  Solid mass is my objective and it does not matter one’s age.

You have to be tough and the desire to win.  The competitions – vegan body building belly dancing. I now have 5 gauges in each ear and each side of my nose is pierced.  The nath is the chains a woman wears on her face when belly dancing.  I will take 3 years to complete all the paintings.  I now have 1 1/2 years to finish.

Vegan bodybuilding you eat 8 times a day.  There are certain foods in a vegan diet as opposed to Vegetarian.  Vegetarian eat animal by products, such as milk, eggs, fish, etc.  Vegan is only plant based foods.  Since I cook with herbs it changes the texture and the taste, and I have been told by many I should open a restaurant 🙂

Trying to finish 2 paintings and 2 songs per week and there are over 60 characters in the children’s book series 5N1.
