Not a picture today, just a happy post!

Back in the middle of February, I decided to do Sugar-Free February (yes, I know I started 2 weeks late but hey ho, story of my life!)

I haven't been obsessive about it, nothing short of a health scare is going to make me give up my weekend bottle of wine, and last week I had a custard doughnut, my first cake for three weeks, because my boss had a birthday.  But I've been making a point of only picking things at the supermarket which have a green rating on the sugar category, and substiituting the sugar in my tea for sweeteners, and I have to say, I've been pleasantly surprised at how easy I've found it.

Added to that, I decided to tie it in with a calorie control exercise to help me get into a little bit more shape for the May cons.  I'm being really strict at the moment, (1,000 calories a day) up until my birthday, then I'll celebrate for a week or so before getting back onto it without being quite so strict (I'll probably up it to 1,500 calories a day).

Added again to that, the fact that I've been doing the 'Walk all over Cancer' fundraising campaign, getting sponsored to to walk at least 10,000 steps every day for the month of March (averaging about 11,500 per day so far).

With all this going on, I stepped onto the scales this morning, and I have lost a stone!!! Well, a stone and one pound to be precise!  That's fifteen pounds in American money.

Who's a happy (and significantly smaller) Dizzo then!! :D

Okay, so continuing my quest for signing fodder for the cons, I've embarked on my annual quest to draw Sam and Dean.  I've done many different flavours of our boys over the years, but this year I decided to do something different.

I'm doing a combined bigger picture for them both to sign.  And, I had this crazy idea to give myself a new challenge - because 'simple' is boring, right?  I picked a couple of pictures of them from one of my favourite episodes, Monster Movie, which just happens to be filmed in black and white ...
