The good news is that I finished two editing jobs, and I have two more currently going. I also have more lined up for later, so I’m pleased with that.

I haven’t been writing as much as I should, so I need to ramp that up. It IS helping that I now have a laptop in my office that STAYS in my office. So I have to go in there to work. The laptop in the living room is for playing (which I haven’t had time for).

I’m on Day 6 of the 21 Day Fix. Out of the 17 meals I’ve had so far, only two of them were “cheat” meals. I haven’t skipped a single day of the exercise, even though it’s really, really hard. I’ve lost 2 1/2 lbs, which averages to about a 1/2 lb. per day. I’ll take it.

Overall, I feel pretty good about the week so far.

Yesterday, I spent several hours with Susan Bischoff. This is always fun, not to mention that she always inspires me to write. We talked about a lot of things. First, she helped me expand on the plotting I was trying to do, giving me lots of good advice about plot points and where they should be in my story. And I finally admitted to someone (Susan!) that I had been finding excuses not to write because every time I thought of my WIP, I got this scared feeling in the pit of my stomach. I’m AFRAID of my manuscript. (And Susan GETS this.) There, I admitted it to all of you. Honestly, this is very new to me. I used to be able to churn out words with no problem, they all made sense, and I wasn’t afraid to publish them. This fear of my own work is SO not me. But I guess it IS me, isn’t it? I’ve never understood writers that were afraid. Now I get it. You know what, though? I’m not going to let myself be held back by that fear any longer. I’m tired of it, and I’m stronger than this. So there! *blows raspberry at the fear*

So my goals for this week (baby steps, no long term goals):

1) Write at least three hours this week
2) Do at least 15 minutes of housework per day using the FlyLady challenges
3) Get back to my healthy eating habits. (I’ve been doing great on exercise, but my old eating habits are sliding back into my life.)

After this week, we’ll see what needs to be done next.
