So looking back through the week, I decided my best course of action was a simple resolution. I will write every day on my WIP. Well, actually, I will write five days a week as a minimum. Once I get that habit established, I can firm up my goals, make them tougher. No rewards for such a simple plan. I’ll save those for when I make specific goals. I need to figure out when I’m going to write during the day. I really don’t have a time that is best, I can pretty much write any time of day.
I’d also like to get other facets of my life organized. I have to confess, I hired a housekeeper to help out. She is going to clean the kitchen and three of the bathrooms every other week (I have a 4200 sq. ft. house w/4 bathrooms). It helps a lot knowing I don’t have that to do every week. I can use the time for other things. Unfortunately, not writing but rather the chores I find hard to get to like dusting.
The truly ugly part of my day came when I got on the scale this morning. Oh. My. Goodness. What have I been doing? Or rather eating? I’m not super-uptight about my weight, heck, I’m nearing forty and I’ve had three kids, I’m not model material. But my weight gain reflects a lack of care for my health. I feel the weight in my joints and back. So I’m really going to work on watching what I eat and kick into the exercise. I know Melissa had a weight loss blog, I might start one myself to keep me accountable.
Hope everyone had a nice New Year. We are expecting a heavy storm tonight through tomorrow, meaning the Rose Parade is going to get drenched. I always hope for this every year, not sure why, just my twisted sense of humor I suppose.
