It’s the end of the week for my resolution to eat healthier and see how it would affect my energy and writing.
I can’t boast an amazing outcome as I’m now sick with some sort of cold and sore throat. I think my niece coughed in my face a couple times and that’s what I get for coloring with her. On the bright side, induced in a tylenol cold medicine sleep last night, I completely slept through some sort of war between my roommates. Apparantly at some early morning hour a taxi showed up at our house and began ringing the doorbell repeatedly. My boyfriend thought it must be our roommate and he locked himself out. We have a spare key hidden that our roommate knows about. My roommate, I guess, actually answered the door and figured out the taxi driver had the wrong house. Oops, sorry. However, my boyfriend, being in a particularly crabby mood this morning (unbeknownst to me in my medicated slumber) decided if he was up and awake, our roommate should be too. So my boyfriend calls our roommate and repeatedly knocks on his door to wake him up, and now my roommate is also crabby. I am positively delighted and cheery today because for once I slept through it all. Yay!
Final Day Diet:
green tea and cough drops, if feeling better later, soup
I’m hoping after the weekend I’ll have a better appetite, so I did spend the better part of last night looking at recipes to make. How does apricot chili pork chops with lemon spaghetti sound? And chicken enchilada skillet? And brown sugar steaks with parmesan potatoes? Oh, I can’t wait to cook again!
Back to writing:
Last post, I challenged us writers to give ourselves SPACE and I’m still impressed with the idea to make changes in our lives, so I’m going to include that in my week’s resolutions. I’d love to hear more about how each of you are giving yourself SPACE to grow, try something new, relax, reenergize. What do you do get motivated again? What are your guilty pleasures for writing? What prevents you from arranging SPACE to grow in? I can’t say thank you enough to the many bloggers/writers who have motivated me to keep going and think positive because any amount of change and any amount of writing is something proactive to have in your life.
This week I will give myself space by:
- Watching a Jane Austen movie.
- Cleaning my room of clutter.
- Journaling for my own enjoyment.
- Finish writing the icy mausoleum scene in my story.
- Blog ahead at least 2 posts.
