Like a freight train barreling down the track with the word STROKE written along the side

I was looking at myself and thinking I could see the freight train barrelling down the track with the words STROKE written along the side. That's how I felt before, and it was time to do something about it. I didn't plan for weeks how I would do it, or mentally prepare for the workouts and dieting, I'm not dieting. I simply woke up one day and ordered a juicer and decided that it was the day to change my life. The juicer arrived three days later and I went forthwith to my local grocer where I stocked up on all that was colourful and leafy. It was time.
I don't preach that everyone should do this, it's an individual thing and you have to be in a place in your life when you are ready. I was. You might not be like me, I was just tired all the time and tired of being tired. I was one bacon and eggs breakfast away from a heart attack. I knew I needed to do something and then it hit me. I need to feel full, want to feel full and I want what I consume to taste great. I could easily forgo all the junk, I've had enough. I've enjoyed every variation of junk anyone could ask for and I'm sick of it all. I'd be lying if I said I don't like certain things. I do look forward to a nice slice of pizza and that will come but not till I have a grip on what is happening inside my body and not letting my body have a grip on me. When I decide to ease back into everyday foods it will be with moderation. I already feel it is possible now but I want to make absolutely certain by establishing a healthy habitual good food regiment and exercise.
Follow me if you too are sick of being fat and out of control, follow my journey, I hope it inspires you.

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
