venting (and not about dieting or weather for once)
Saturday, July 27, 2013      3 comments

There's a writing website I visit nearly everyday to find out which publishers have submissions calls or which publishers I should avoid. For the last several months, one writer has been posting many, many messages about how Publisher X has bee... Read more
accomplishing a goal
Sunday, June 30, 2013      4 comments

I finished polishing a story to submit for an anthology and I'm exhausted. I really need to find a better way to balance my time instead of pushing myself right up until the last minute. I work better under the pressure of a deadline but this ... Read more
Rainy Day
Wednesday, June 05, 2013      0 comments

Rain in June in northeast Florida is not uncommon but I'd been planning an outdoor workout today and had to postpone because of rain. I worked out inside instead, but it would have been to exercise outside because it feels like I've been cooped... Read more
Being Disciplined
Saturday, May 25, 2013      1 comments

I'm going to a barbecue tomorrow, and as much as I love grilled hamburgers with all the trimmings, I'm not going to pig out. Even though I've been pretty good about my diet lately and rationalizing a little cheating would be easy, I'm going to ... Read more
Cool weather!
Wednesday, May 15, 2013      0 comments

I'm loving the cool weather we're having right now. Usually in northeast Florida this time of year, the heat and humidity is just getting cranked up. I'm scared that cool weather now means an extra brutal summer, but I'll enjoy it while it las... Read more
Sunshine at last!
Tuesday, May 07, 2013      1 comments

After almost a week of rain, the sun finally came out. I still worked out inside today because conditions outside aren't that great. There's debris from the storms and standing flood water still around so I still have a few days before I resum... Read more
Exercising in the Rain
Monday, April 29, 2013      3 comments

The weatherman on the news said there will be rain for the next three days so I'll be doing a lot of indoor workouts. It will be good practice for when it gets really hot and humid this summer and it's too miserable to workout outside.... Read more
End of a rough week
Saturday, April 20, 2013      0 comments

In terms of current events, this is the roughest week we've had in a long time. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by the tragedy in Boston and to the people of West, Texas who have been affected by the explosion. I hope the... Read more
yard work and working out
Thursday, April 18, 2013      0 comments

My upper arms are quickly becoming my most troublesome body part but I gave them a workout today by tackling the weeds in my yard with a weedwhacker. I'm just glad that it's not so humid yet that yard work becomes impossible unless you do it ea... Read more
Sleep and Weight Loss
Friday, March 22, 2013      3 comments

I saw on the news where people who suffer from insomnia are more likely to be overweight or have trouble losing weight. I definitely have trouble sleeping, but never really made a connection to weight loss before, except that sometimes I'm too ... Read more
too long
Tuesday, March 19, 2013      1 comments

I can't believe I haven't written a blog entry since December. I've been busy writing and unfortunately, not working out. Now that the weather's in that great time between being too hot and too cold, it's the perfect time to go walking. I mi... Read more

Since I didn't post a blog in time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, I'm wishing everyone a Happy Boxing Day. I'm not even sure what Boxing Day is except that it's celebrated in Europe. But I really do hope you all had a great holiday and ar... Read more

I'm supposed to be participating in NaNoWriMo but I've only written less than a page so far. It's been hard to focus lately, dealing with problems at work and feeling kind of crummy in general. I'm hoping to exercise a little more discipline a... Read more

Cool weather has finally come to northeast Florida and it's such a relief. I don't know how long it will last but I'm hoping the 90 degree days are over for a while.... Read more
