Midweek #ROW80 Progress Report

It is time for another ROW80 progress report.

BuddyFirst up, I am DELIGHTED to say that Buddy, the black lab we rescued a couple weeks back and took to the local human society has been adopted!  He’ll be taken home after he’s been neutered.  This makes me incredibly happy because he is such a sweet sweet boy, and I worried because he was older, (and kinda neurotic after being on his own for so long), that he might have some issues on that front.  So that was a lovely middle of the week uplifting bit of news.

As far as Operation G.I.T., today marks DAY 3 that I have gotten up ON TIME and done my full workout.  Yesterday I was so sore, I’m pretty sure I was hobbling around like a septogenerian–which made my taekwondo class last night pretty interesting.  I’ve also been good so far this week about getting my minimum 80 ounces of water a day.  There’s still room for improvement in my portion sizes, but I am so not worried about that this week.  This week is all about getting back into routine.

On the writing front, after last week’s stupendous week, I hit a bit of a snag, which is 99% of the time evidence that I went wrong somewhere.  I had to be on the road some for the Evil Day Job yesterday, and driving is always good thinking/plotting time, so I sorted out a change I needed to make in the narrative (swapping out one character for another who will better be able to drive the shero’s character arc).  Last night’s writing block was spent going through my outline and making note of the changes that need to be made with that.  I can already feel the mental wheels turning, so I know it was the right move.

Yesterday I finished listening to Dream of You, the 5th in Kate Perry’s Laurel Heights series.  Really enjoyed that (the shero was a romance novelist, so possibly this was a no brainer).  I’m also reading The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, which I’m REALLY enjoying.  For some reason, spring cleaning and a yen for non-fiction tend to go hand in hand for me.

What are you reading, writing, working on?

  2. So glad to hear the dog was adopted. Sorry you hit a snag on the writing, but at least it sounds like you’re working through the issue. I’ve found myself listening to a lot more audio books, especially while doing chores around the house.
