Back to it

A new year, a new chance to get it right. *muahahaha*

This year I cheated just a little and got a "leg up" on my resolutions: We bought a used BowFlex Revolution last month, so I've already been working out enough to be through those really sore days. I'm going with smaller changes toward getting back in shape this time--rather than a whole-life switcheroo diet like I tried last year. I plan to work out at least 5 times per week (I'm not even gonna fool myself about every day) and 2 of those workouts are upper body, which only take about 25 minutes. I can do this! :) And my dietary goals? Well, I'd like to add more veggies (which my fridge sadly lacks) and of course protein, since I'm building muscle. My one concrete nutritional goal is to limit my sodas to 1 per day.

Writing-wise, I'm partway there already. Waiting for Revenge will be revamped, recovered, and re-released as the lighter story it is--with a new title too: Trouble Won't Wait. I also plan to finish re-writing Hits and Misters, and get it to my editor. And... put out a newsletter. Somewhere I've got links saved for the newsletter-sending services.

This summer, I vow to do better with the yard. Which is a long way off, so I don't have to stress too much about it now. (which is probably how it's ending up on this list, LOL)

And that's it--I'm going easy on myself this year. Or so I'll think until next week when I've got 4 more workouts to go. LOL

Happy New Year!
