We still have a large bowl of Halloween candy and Birthday cake left but I'm not going to let that stop me. Tomorrow I need to really get on track. Eating better, exercise, and writing are the 3 things I need to work on.

When it comes to writing I panic and I hate everything I write. I come up with ideas and then see it later in a movie or book. BUT last month I entered a writing contest. It was a short one, 750 word count limit, and I was very happy with what I wrote. It was horror which comes very easy to me. The story Im having trouble with is a Fantasy/Supernatural/Mystery. I just need to sit down and write and remind myself of our I felt when write the short for the contest. So my goal is to write everyday. I want to write a short each month and spend 2 hours on my main story.

Like Ive said in almost all my posts, eating right is so hard in this house. The first thing I need to work on is portion control. A couple weeks later I need to work on eating more fruits and veggies. Then balanced meals and making smart choices.

Exercise. What can I say? I have no excuses to not do it. I just need to get up and do it. Out of everything this is the easiest of them all. I have DVDs, weights, bands, and this website. I even have a dog to go on walks with me. At the end of this summer I was doing good and walking the dog every day and then I just stopped. I think it was the weather, the rain, that made me just take her to the back to do her business. I need to get back out there. Walk her for 10 mins till she does her stuff and then I can walk myself later in the day for 30 minutes. I can work my upper body while sitting here watching TV.

I need to just do all of this and remind myself of why I am doing it. These 3 things are important to me. Tomorrow I am going to make sure that I change my life.

    OK, it's tomorrow!! Time to change your life! Did you go for that walk today? It's raining here, so I'm going to be doing an exercise DVD myself. :) It's never too late to start doing one small thing. So even if it's just one VERY small thing, so something TODAY! :) You can do this!!!

    Passion, we can do miracles when we have a passion for something. Your passion is writing, it is the icing on the cake for your day. Do you eat the icing first and leave the cake, or eat the cake first and leave the best to last and savior it.

    Attitude is everything. Spend some time eating the 'cake': prepare a week's breakfast or lunches in advance, get the morning walk in, your adorable furry companion is probably missing it, then spend some time savoring the 'icing'.

    Don't let it bother you that you may have seen your idea used somewhere else. How many love stories are there for instance. Each has its own slant on it. The same with westerns and comedy.
