I Think I'm Sweating Actual Blood

I just finished my 2nd day of the "30 Day Shred" workout DVD and, well, it hurts to type.

And breathe air... I think it's working! :D

Seriously, my husband had to spot me both down and back up the stairs because my calves no longer work. Apparently one needs those for a variety of tasks, including, you know, walking.

All this brings me to ask, how are your goals going so far this year?

Which goals did you make, and how are you sticking with them?

My entire body hurt today, yet I still forced myself to do that damn workout again. Tomorrow? Yeah, going for a 3rd time. And I feel damn good about it.

All this means is that if my lazy self can do this, you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to.

So, how's it goin? :)

I did my first workout today in months and I did it on half-weight so I wouldn't be so sore.
I probably will be sore anyways.

First day running - thought I was gonna die. Next few days, not bad...then I went back to work. And work was insane. And I have NOT figured out how to fit in my workouts.

But, I have meditated daily. I did force myself to send my novel to my its coming along....sort of!

Ouch sounds dedicated. I have been trying to do 200 situps daily and three runs a week but not managing it all the time... the intention is good though!

Isn't it ironic that exercise, which is supposed to be good for us, actually makes us think that death is a better option??

Case in Point - since June I'd be working out to the Wii EA Sports Active Personal Trainer. 5 Days per week. In November, I bought the EA More Workouts! OMG, the first day doing that one and you'd have thought I never exercised a day in my life. I could barely move for a week after doing the first routine! Geesh! I'm all for a bit of exercise, but really!

As for my goals . . . their plodding steadily along. I'm working on a new project that's fitting together quite nicely. I still have to finish up my query letter, do a bit more agent research, and then begin the query process in February. Oh, and I have yet to dive back into the revisions on the next project I want to query. Still, the goals are happening, I'm still exercising, and life is pretty good!

Iapetus999: Good for you! Remember to stretch, my friend!

Christine: I bet the daily meditation helps keep the crazy at bay with such a schedule. Good luck getting your running in!

Kate: DANG, girl! If you manage to meet your goal, you should send us a picture of your abs so we can be inspired!

Scott: Haha, I love the wii :). Congrats on your goal progress!!

Okay, I'm eating a blazing salad for lunch. I hate that. I hate that it's not hot. I like hot lunch. But I do it four days a week.

Next week? Exercise.

I hate my life right now.

But I will do it!

Go you!

You are awesome! I'm doing that P90X and it's kicking my *ss. I'm sore, but I've lost some weight and I'm feeling good, so I'm sticking to it. Writing is going awesome and I've almost finished rewrites. My year is off to a great start!

Rebecca Knight said...

Elana: You rock!! I love hot lunch, too, so I hear ya.

B.J.: You rock, too! I'm so glad to hear you are kicking butt already!

I think white writers really don't know enough black people (probably none on a personal level) to write about us.
I help authors all the time with black characterazations because they want to get it right and are afraid of stereotyping or insulting us.
I am proud to say on my blog we have had great racial dialog about white/black issues. I loved it. My next post will be of that kind where people can dialog about what I'm feeling and thinking and what they are. As far as why there are no or not many black sci-fi/fantasy characters I have no idea. Thanks Nicola for getting us together.
