Hit one mark!

10% down, 90% to go on my Camp NaNoWriMo novel.  I've enjoyed writing so far because I haven't planned out my plot so I look forward to see what my protagonist does today. Now, the key will be for me to stay on track or recover from the change in schedule that will occur over the next few days.

I'll have to take a similar approach with the weight loss plan. I'm down one pound from last week (success!) but I still struggle at the beginning of the week since I feel like I can eat ANYTHING and EVERYTHING rather than trying to pace myself and space out my "bonus points" throughout the week, or towards the end of my week. Needless to say, I get frustrated when I have to stay strictly within my points from Friday through Tuesday!

Overall, I have to say I'm pleased to make forward progress in the priority areas of my life. Now if I could just find a more regular way to pay the bill thingies...

If anyone needs me, I'll be at camp...Camp NaNoWriMo!

I will be hanging out at Camp NaNoWriMo for the next month.  If you are not familiar with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), I highly recommend checking it out.  It is a lot of fun to challenge yourself to write 50,000 words in a month. I attempted it in November of November 2011 and achieved a 37,000 word manuscript which I have since built up to 40,000 words and am currently revising. I briefly attempted it in November of 2012, but it didn't take at all.  I am excited about Camp NaNoWriMo because I have a different type of idea and so far I'm interested to see where it can go.

And as for the weight loss struggle, it may still be a struggle, but I have some attainable goals that I hope to accomplish to help me get healthier and accomplish what I want.
