Operation Goddess In Training Reboot

In the beginning… Several years ago, I started a self directed goal of taking better care of my body–through fitness, better nutrition, skincare, the works.  And I dubbed it Operation Goddess In Training because the idea was to treat myself like the goddess I know I can be (this would be before the term for […]

Still Alive

I have been a lousy example this Round of ROW80.  Missing check-ins left and right.  Barely blogging at all.  I promise I’m still alive. In the ten days since my last check-in, I’ve finished outlining Sooper Seekrit Project Book 2 and written the opening scene of that.  Then yesterday, a different bunny reared up and […]

Approaching The End

Clearly I am just not in a blogging frame of mind.  The longer I’m at this, the more I get immersed in whatever book I’m writing, until writing Other Stuff just…doesn’t enter my consciousness.  Until I surface and need to start digging out the house again. The #ROW80 Update While I am approaching the end, […]

I Survived Whole30 (and a #ROW80 Check-In)

Well, I did it.  I survived Whole30.  It was easier than I expected…although part of that was because 2 and a half weeks in, after all the caffeine headaches had passed, I decided that one cup of proper tea, exactly as I normally drink it, wasn’t going to derail my progress (unlike all the other […]

On Leveling Up and Finding The Way

Operation G.I.T. My brain has been all over the place this week.  I’m closer to back in the groove of normal schedule, but not quiet there.  Mornings after taekwondo are always the hardest for sticking to my vow to get up and write before walking the dogs and the gym.  I don’t get to bed […]

Belated Sunday Summary: Cooking All The Things

I totally didn’t get around to posting this yesterday.  I didn’t even get around to writing yesterday other than about a hundred words of expansion on a previous scene. I spent Sunday cooking All The Things.  Now I cook a lot to begin with since I make a bunch of stuff from scratch that most people […]

Whole 30 Day 3 and a ROW80 Progress Report

It’s been a rough transition back to work this week.  There’s no such thing as a slow start…it’s like jumping headfirst into the deep end of a pool and being electrocuted.  My uncaffeinated brain hasn’t been dealing too well with that (not that caffeine is verboten on Whole 30, but everything that goes in my […]

Bring It 2016! Round 1 ROW80 Goals

Because I work for a university, one of the epic perks is a long Christmas break.  Since we’re off until after New Year’s, it doesn’t ever REALLY feel like a new year until I get back to work and into the normal routine.  Today is that day and I’m raring to go.  I’ve got eleventy […]

Manifesting the Positive in 2016

Welcome to 2016. It really won’t feel like the new year for me until Monday, when I dive into the new/old routine that is daily life.  I’ve enjoyed my holiday, gotten some rest and some quiet.  Done some reading (knocked out Tawna Fenske’s latest, The Fix Up and Tara Sivec’s Seduction and Snacks, both of which were […]

Recipe Indexing and Whole 30 Prep

Recipe Indexing I love cookbooks.  And cooking magazines.  And food blogs.  Which all stems from the fact that I love food. I have this habit of getting new ones, going through and sticky tabbing the recipes I want to try, but I’m terrible about not checking them when making my weekly menus and shopping list.  This is […]
