Accountability Tuesdays – Week 22

This is going to be a quick one, my loves, because I’m doing some last minute packing because I’m ~comin’ home!~ 😀

Health and Body Image Goal

Still going strong, though I’m very glad to be going home because I am so sick of chicken salads and salmon with rice, it’s SO not even funny. Get some variety, Wapasu! Geez!
I also had to take a short break from running (much to my chagrin) because I’ve got a bit of a case of shin splints. Turns out that running on very firmly hard-packed dirt in a pair of $20 Walmart sneakers isn’t very good for the tibias. Go figure. I decided to splurge a little bit and ordered myself a very nice, well-rated pair of Saucony running shoes, so hopefully after a couple more days my legs will feel better and I’ll be back at it with the proper gear.

Editing Goal

Nothing this week because I was super busy, but as previously mentioned I am newly motivated to get my manuscript in a readable condition so I can do a beta-reading novel swap with a writer friend of mine. I’m thinking I’m going to bite the bullet and transfer my digital manuscript to my tablet so I can edit more quickly and easily while I’m out West. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one…I’m so used to editing on paper that doing it in a digital copy might actually slow me down even more. O_o

1,000,000 Word Goal

Excellent week, this week, thanks to fan fiction! Returning Hope really bolstered me up, and yesterday I plucked out a couple of blog posts for the rest of this week, which all together brought me to 10453 words. Woo! If only I could do that every week. 😛

Okay people, sorry to post and run, but it’s my last day so I’ve got to get busy with my traditional travel-day hyjinx of tormenting all the people who are not on their last day. Ke ke ke ke ke…

Accountability Tuesdays – Week 16

Has anyone ever noticed that when you’re flying over Toronto the city looks just like a game of Sim City? Or is that just me? Hmm.

So here I am again, in the Toronto Pearson International Airport, waiting for my traditional travel day quesadilla and plucking out an accountability post. It’s fun times, I tell ya. It’s a gritty, exhausting, miserable kind of fun, but…yeah. Moving on.

Let’s jump right to it, shall we?

Health and Bodty Image Goal

I feel secure in my ability to not whine about this one this week. Though I may have eaten a few things I ought not have, for the most part I feel I did pretty well over the past week, and that’s including an unblemished week of Jillian Michaels’ Body Revolution videos. I rearraged the schedule of the videos a bit to account for a day out shopping with my husband and daughter, and of course to deal with today (like hell I’m exercising at camp after a 20-hour travel day!), but I still did the correct number of videos in the correct number of days, and I made a real effort to push myself. I’ve lost a whole 0.6 of a lb (hahahahahaha). My tentative plan is to repeat the first set of videos for three weeks instead of the normal two to attempt to condition myself a little better before moving on to the next set, because the last time I hit the second set of videos they were so painful I almost threw up. The jump from stage one to stage two is really noticable, and I don’t want to break myself like last time.

Editing Goal

I didn’t do much of anything since that last little push two weeks ago, but believe me when I say I’ve got a plan, okay? Okay.

1,000,000 Word Goal

This week wasn’t a great bit better than last week, I have to admit. I wrote 3079 words toward the blog, which puts me at a total of 16,139 for CampNaNoWriMo. I’m hoping to put a real push on in the next couple of days so that I can hit my CampNaNo goal of 30,000, so wish me luck. As I write this I’m trying to come up with blog post ideas so I can type on the plane. Got any ideas? Please feel free to share them. What do you want me to talk about? Come on people, I’m an (almost) open book. 🙂

And with that done for another week, I look to the horizon and the quesadilla that is headed toward my table. Laters!
