Restart, and moving ahead

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Again I restart my journey. I am so hopeful, that I can get closer to my goal, or at least a major portion of it, before the Holidays set in. I am going to be quite frank, I don't feel that I do well, at those times, because of all the celebrations, and actually the commercials, are what get to me, during that time, because they start for Halloween, all the candy, and go through Christmas, with all the festivities and desserts. I am so hoping I can contain myself, I really want to lose enough to feel comfortable.
Now my biggest problem is protein, with being a semi vegetarian. I still eat dairy, and fish, I cannot seem to get enough. I guess I need to work at this, or I will lose strength, which I am not even wanting to happen, because everything I work at will come to a halt.
I mainly need brain food. I am actually taking on an endeavor, that I have dearly wanted to do for most of my adult life. I am going to sit down and write a novel. I have my characters, I have my beginning. Need to work on an ending, then fill, and of course a title, have lots, but need to nail one for this particular book. I have several novels in mind, but to put that first one out there, will be a huge step.
I have been told I have a fertile imagination, lol, need to put it down on pages.

    Do you eat nuts? I find almonds to be a decent source of protein for me.

I wish you success writing your novel. I love to read and I so envy people who can write!

    Writing a novel sounds like an exciting prospect! Have fun with it! As for protein, how do you feel about beans? I LOVE beans, and they are so versatile - put them in soups, on salads, into sandwiches, as a side dish... they can work for you in so many ways!
Good luck on "restarting". I put that in quotation marks because I feel like every day is a new start anyway, a new opportunity to renew our motivation and our vows to ourselves!
Have a good one,

    Yay! You are back.

Writing a novel is so exciting. I took a creative writing class for the first time in my life last year and discovered how hard that can be. Much of writing seems to be like exercise/diet - you just have to do it. And keep at it. Too cool!!!

    Glad to have you back woman! Take it one day at a time and try not to stress too much! I add a lot of seeds, nuts and tofu into my diet to get my protein in plus things like greek yogurt which has an absurd amount of protein in it!

You can do it!
