We Are Currently Experiencing Difficulties…Technical and Otherwise

Scheduling has never been a strength of mine, and as such it’s not surprising that only a few weeks after setting up a blogging schedule for myself I mucked it up. You’ll have to forgive me, however, because the lack of updates the past two days was the result of a mixture of my own lack of planning ahead, a ban of mobile devices in the control room in which I work, a chintzy-at-best internet connection at the camp where I stay, and a very, very terrible few nights of sleep.

I swear I’m not making excuses. I’ve been so tired that I passed out and started snoring on the bus to work yesterday. Very unbecoming.

I am currently working on ensuring that next week does not befall the same fate that the end of this week did, so I hope you will be kind enough to cross your legs, fold your hands, and wait patiently for regular posts to resume.

Or don’t. It really won’t make a difference.

(But I have found patience to be somewhat less stressful.)

Accountability Tuesdays – Week 9

Have you ever had a week during which you got a ton done, accomplished a lot, but ultimately felt as though you’d failed somehow? That’s how I feel about this week. I actually had quite a good week overall, but somehow I not only don’t feel good about the week, but actually feel bad about it.

Though that may be sugar withdrawal talking.

Let’s press on, shall we?

Health and Body Image Goal
Aside from one Cardio day during which I was so tired from lack of sleep that I could barely lift my legs, I managed to closely follow my Body Revolution videos. Jillian Michaels is a harsh trainer sometimes, but she’s also very motivating so I’m enjoying the program. That said, I just recently began the third week of the program, which brings new videos, and I’m not adapting well. In fact, today I’m so sore that I can pretty much guarantee that I’ll be skipping another cardio day. My legs are positively throbbing.
On the diet side of this goal, things are going well. I’ve been eating a lot of veggies and lean protein (if that’s what you can call the chicken at camp, which we are very, very suspicious of). Last week I was very cranky and suffering lots of cravings, but this week this far has been a lot better. I’m catching on to the difference between actually being hungry and just wanting to eat because. I am, however, still getting sugar cravings, as mentioned above. Ain’t no one gonna convince me that sugar isn’t highly addictive. God damn delicious stuff.

Editing Goal

1,000,000 Word Goal
I had an excellent week for writing, thanks to my new Bluetooth keyboard. I wont break it down this week because I unfortunately don’t have that kind of time right now, but my total for the week was 12824 words. Go me! The downside of this is that I was only able to achieve this word count through the use of my new keyboard…and recently all mobile devices were banned from the building I work in. In other words, for 12 hours of the day I’m back to being stuck with a pen and a notebook. C’est la vie. Back to a meager word count…I’m totally never going to hit 1,000,000 words. 😛

And that’s what I have to say for today. Booyackasha.
