The Weekly Word



I'm feeling somewhat better. I think. This cold is holding on to me tighter than a pair of too-small jeans. The only thing getting me through each day and night is Nyquil. But I am getting some things done, so we'll count that as a victory.

Getting Healthy


Last week's goal: Start doing yoga again. I never felt good enough to start up again. Soooo....

This week's goal: Start doing yoga again. There's a possibility I'll go do a gentle yoga routine after finishing this post. And after a cup of herbal tea clears out my throat. Again.

Bonus goal: Healthy...er foods. As it always happens when I'm out for the count, our eating habits lean toward junk food and convenience foods. We were doing so well for a while there. I'd like to get back to that. At least I haven't jumped back into the caffeinated soda habit again. I'll call that a success. :)

Getting Organized


Last week's goal: Use my planner every day. Despite being sick last week, I actually did pretty good at this. While I didn't use every part of my weekly spread, I did use it almost every day. Gold star for me! 

New goal: Use my planner every day. Doing it again. This goal is the foundation for the rest of my organizing goals, so I want to make sure it's a solid habit before I tackle anything new.


Getting Published


Last week's goal: Write every day. I did it! Mostly. But I sat down to write at 9 am every weekday last week AND I did it again at 12:30 Monday through Wednesday. Most days I only worked for 15-30 minutes, but that's better than nothing!  Not only that, but I knocked out 800+ words on a short story I'm contributing to an anthology. (Only a month late on that one...dang germs!)

New goal: Write every day. Butt in chair, hands on keyboard every day at 9 am (except Wednesdays). And again at 12:30 pm (except Fridays). This week is going to be interesting. It's parent-teacher conferences at my younger boys' school which means their schedule is going to be all over the place. Full days today and tomorrow, early release for both younger boys on Wednesday, early release for my 7yo and no school for my 5yo on Thursday, and no school on Friday for either of them. Meanwhile, my 15yo has regular school schedule all week. I'm exhausted just typing that.

I'm still going to do my best to sit down at my keyboard twice a day to get stuff done. This habit isn't going to develop itself, after all!


My Challenge for You


Celebrate your victories this week, no matter how small. Success helps to breed more success. You can do it! I believe in you!
