It’s November 7th and I’m still trying to get settled back into a productive routine and it hasn’t happened yet but I’m not giving up. I vowed last Friday that starting Monday morning, every morning M-F I will get into my garage and do twenty minutes cardio. Every morning, 20 mins minimum. If I want to go longer, great. If I only want to do 20, wonderful. But I have a bike out there and a treadmill and workout DVDs and I have to do 20 mins of true cardio exercise. And I did it today. It didn’t happen at 8 or 8:30 but by 8:45 I’d climbed on the bike and put in my 22 minutes. It wasn’t an easy little cycle but it chilled me out and met my goal.
Time to meet goal #2: writing 10 pages today, and every day M-F, so by the end of the week, I have 50 solid pages for Kit’s book, the second book in my Brennan Sisters trilogy. I tried several times last week but got distracted and frustrated and side tracked into easier things. But no more easy. Time to put on my battle gear and be disciplined and smart and get stuff–the important stuff like writing new pages–done.
Speaking of smart, one of my readers in Kirkland, WA has a very smart puppy. The thirteen week old mini dachshund has excellent taste in books…nibbling on Odd Mom Out in his free time. Good dog!
I have a third goal, too…and that’s to lose some weight. I had to buy all new clothes for the honeymoon since I spent the summer and Fall sitting and writing and not exercising. The honeymoon didn’t help in the weight department, either, so no more Halloween candy, time to go healthy. Time to remember how delicious vegetables are. Hmmm. I will one day, won’t I?
Do you have any goals? Want to accomplish anything? Share with me! I have a special Cozy Fall prize for one of you…a soft fleecy pink robe, a special Pacific Northwest teapot, books by the fabulous Megan Crane/Caitlin Crews, Trish Morey, and me, and more great goodies. Talk and you’re entered. Contest ends Friday and winner will be announced on Saturday. Have a great week. I’m off to write!
