Victory Week

I am winning at this week.

Today, of course, my arms feel like they’re going to fall off, and my butt hurts, and my neck, shoulders, and back feel like I slept on a row of chairs in an airport terminal (this is speculation, since I haven’t actually done that).

This evening’s 20 minutes of yoga will be brutal.

But I will have done those minutes. And that is something I can be proud of.

I’m writing a story. My goal is to write 10,000 words of story or outline by the end of July. I’m a bit behind right now, at 920 words, but I’ll catch up next week, once my exercise routine isn’t making me all sleepy.

I have an exercise routine! Five days a week, immediately after I get home from work. Yoga on MWF; walk/jog & strength training TTH. So far so good, though I skipped yesterday (national holiday, yo) and today I can FEEL IT.

I’ve also not forgotten my prozac at all this week, and I’ve taken my multivitamin every day too.

I really feel like I’ll keep it up this time.

And yes, blog, I haven’t forgotten about you. I’ll be back! Writing updates, exercise progress reports, random ramblings… there will be words. ALSO: Dune will still be read. Once I finish Zoe’s Tale and The Human Division.

  1. I precisely wished to appreciate you once again. I do not know what I would have taken care of in the absence of the actual recommendations shown by you over this situation. Certainly was a real distressing dilemma in my opinion, however , taking a look at the very specialised approach you managed the issue took me to cry over joy. Extremely thankful for this work as well as sincerely hope you recognize what a great job that you’re accomplishing educating others through your web site. I’m certain you’ve never got to know any of us.

  2. I want to express my appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from such a scenario. Just after looking throughout the search engines and finding strategies which are not powerful, I assumed my entire life was done. Living devoid of the approaches to the issues you’ve resolved all through your posting is a serious case, and the kind that could have negatively damaged my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your web site. That capability and kindness in playing with every aspect was priceless. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not discovered such a solution like this. I can also at this time relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for this specialized and effective help. I won’t hesitate to suggest your web blog to any person who requires counselling about this problem.
