I have been putting off creating a videos because I'm not sure how to do in well. Tonight, I decided that being scared to start wouldn't make it happen. So I started, That's my mini milestone accomplished—making a start. I painted the above original oil painting of the back of Broken Hill Living Desert in a simplified, pleasing colour harmony.
I swear I got palpitations from nerves filming this. That was the easy part, the editing is shocking. Well, I can only improve. I cannot get worse. Do you want to see more of these? Any advice on how to become more professional at editing—yesterday—(but I'm in no hurry) would be so gratefully appreciated. I'm a skilled art teacher in front of a live audience, but I'm freezing for the camera.
I plan to do one quality video a week. Huh, I have to learn to do one quality video first. All advice welcome.
A Blast from the past: Below is the mini-milestone I did seven years ago at age sixty four.
The Michelle Bridges round two, 12 weeks, body transformation, Mini Milestones are due during weeks four and eight with a Major effort due in week 12.
How could I ever equal the exhilaration of the achievements I made in 12wbt, first round, when I climbed seven mountains in the Grampians around the week 4 and managed to run 7 kilometres around weeks 8 and swam 2 kilometres around week 12?
Exhilaration to see Reg's fitness improve too, though he is having some serious hip issues, that we need to follow up on soon. Looks like both our bodies are ready to go in for the 500 thousand, full service, grease and oil change.
The 12 weeks begins in a week’s time but I am doing something of a mini Milestone this week.
Feel I need to see how I go with it all before shouting it, getting back on track after having had a week unwell last week.
I am planning to add to my current 1 to 2 kilometre a day swimming and beach exercising of running or abdominal exercise routine
Monday, Les Mills, Body Pump
Tuesday, Les Mills, Body Step,
Wednesday, Les Mills, Body Pump
Thursday, Zumba 45 minute dance session
Saturday, Les Mills, Body Pump
That is the plan,
I also have medical appointments follow-ups and treatment to organize so, as I said, not ready to shout it until I see if I can do it.
I may also cut back on the swimming if I can do these classes as I sometimes feel a bit woozy after swimming and the pool is getting cooler, even here in north Queensland, as we get near the middle of winter.
If I can do even one, let alone one a day for six days, each week, of these classes at near 64, still obese (according to BMI charts) and with a few health problems at the moment, which will be a huge mini milestone for me. I cannot see past tomorrow or this week now, with a LOT of challenges this week; I need to get through this week before I plan for 4, 8 and 12 weeks mini milestones, I cannot think what they might be. Tomorrow night, the night after that even, I might have a clearer view ahead.
I hope I can come here in a week’s time and say I was able to do this plan and it wasn’t a hair brained idea of mine, which I wasn’t up to.
