I just realized two things. 1) I forgot to do my final round check-in and 2) It’s been three weeks since I posted my Friday Kick the Insulin post. Where does the time go?

I did pretty well this round with writing except for something that threw me way off balance for about a week and halted my writing progress. I was spot on for getting my monthly word count goal in, but this thing really got me down for about six or seven days. It shouldn’t have bothered me, but it did. I can’t go into it publicly because I don’t want hurt feelings, but I’m okay now due to some other friends talking me down from the precipice. I’m a very upbeat kind of person, so it was really unusual for me to be down. It just goes to show our writing is very important to us. Yeah, this was all about writing. Anyway, I’m going to finish below my word count goal for the month, but I’m okay with it. I needed the time off to regroup.

Since this is Friday, I’ll also touch on my Kick the Insulin thing, although I don’t usually combine it with ROW80. I haven’t been able to cut down my dosage yet, but I’m gradually losing weight. It’s coming off about 1/2 lbs. a week right now, but I’ll take it. The only thing I’ve been doing differently (except a little exercise) is replacing one meal a day with a Shakeology shake. If I can get my other meals under better control, there will be more success. And I need to get back to my PiYo workouts, which came to a standstill while I was teaching Vacation Bible School one week. Then I just didn’t get back to it.

I’m really looking forward to the next round! See you all there!

caffè caldo e aromi

I usually don’t get a chance to relax on a Sunday morning with my coffee and my laptop. But I got up early this morning, so breakfast was made and eaten early. And here I am with a little time to kill before church. 🙂

I realized I didn’t get all my sponsor duties done last week, and I apologize for that. I had Vacation Bible School all week, plus I’m doing a beta read/edit, so I was swamped. Things have calmed down now.

Because of aforementioned VBS and beta read, I hadn’t touched my WIP for two weeks until yesterday. I’m way behind on my monthly word count, but I managed to get over 1300 words in yesterday. Since that’s 3 times the amount of daily words I need to meet my monthly goals, it helped me gain a little. So now I have to average a little over 600 words per day to meet the goal, which should be doable.

My vacation is coming up in three weeks, and I’m really looking forward to that!

I guess that’s all!

There’s not a lot to report. Blood sugar is staying steady. I lost another 1/2 lb. this week. I’ve been doing a lot of exercise, but the past few days I haven’t felt well, so I took off a couple of exercise days.

I’m pretty happy with my progress. I would like to lose weight a little faster, but slow and steady wins the race. Well, at least in the case of the tortoise and the hare. LOL

Here’s a hilarious video with Tony Horton about Shakeology, which is what I’m drinking.
