plateau

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

I have come to the conclusion that 200-205 is a hard spot for me. This is from past experience. Last time I was just doing spark people I got down to 202 before going to debate camp. I stayed at 202 for a while then the bad eating habits changed that and I stopped weighing in.

I made it down to 202 again. Then went home to visit my mom and the week after returning I didn't do any exercise. I gained three lbs again making it back at 205.

Now I'm on the way down again. Almost at 202 and hopefully this time I'll make it under 200.

    You will this time because you see your point of error now, since you are more aware you should pull through.

    You can do it !! When I'm at a plateau, I eat nothing but raw foods (fruits/veggies/nuts) for 2-3 days. It gets me over the plateau and ready to continue the descent! :)

Goals mid year

Monday, June 29, 2009

With June closing it is a good time to look at those goals and re-evaluate if needed.

My writing goals for 2009:
1. Finish writing Ephram's Defiance. Then edit and rewrite. - I haven't finished yet. But I did get back to writing it. I have chapter 15 done.


2. Finish and do second draft of Hellenic Distractions. - First draft is finished. Second draft is almost started with my decision to cut the prologue.

3. Write horror and sci-fi short stories. - I have done a few horror-like stories for contests. Am working on a supernatural one from the prompt "if you woke up in a grimm's fairy tale".


4. Submit something for publication. (one short story at least) - Over 2 months ago I submitted "So I Said To My Shrink" to the Orson Scott Card Medicine Show magazine. It's my first sci-fi short story about an alien talking to a human therapist.


5.Write another children's story. - I wrote a couple first drafts during a picture book writing week. Sent one to my mom for Mothers' Day.

6.Get focused on ideas and maybe not think of too many more (have 43 already) - as if I could really stop myself from thinking of two many. My "focus" is on 4 novels right now. Some think that is too many. lol

7. Write hero novel. - Chapter one is done. Nothing else. Want to finish the teen first draft first. Then this one.

If I have time, maybe write A Cinder Tale. - This one is a no go. I have decided to write a witch/vampish tale right now instead since it's one of my few ideas that has a female main character. I am writing chapter two of Blood Prophesy now.


Wow.... I feel accomplished. This past month felt very down about writing because for most of it I wrote zero fiction. And yet I have worked on my goals this year and from the looks of it, doing much better than I ever expected.

Odd Responses

Saturday, June 27, 2009

This has been a bleh kind of week. Didn't feel like working out and going to SLC several times this week to get my computer fixed threw off my schedule even more. Plus today my back hurts.

I gained a little back which didn't make me feel very good.

Yet my grandmother says I look like I'm losing.
Rather odd...

Head Ache

Thursday, June 25, 2009

I have had a headache for the last several days. At least once during the day, if not longer and repeated.

This makes things difficult. I am having a hard time exercising because in morning and in evening I don't feel very well. Hopefully I can get back into the mode soon.

  


Returned

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Well, I spent the weekend in Wyoming visiting my mom and stepdad. Figured it was only fair since on Mothers' Day I was with Dad. So on Fathers' Day I was with Mom.

I had a good time. Shopped for some clothing and got new shoes because the pair I was wearing had holes in them.

Didn't eat too healthy though. Time to get back to work on the treadmill and eating healthy.
