Ya. On Friday I mentioned how I needed to find balance. Well that is much easier said than done.
On Saturday, it was the Write-A-Thon, where basically sit your tush down at the computer and write… ALL…. DAY… LONG. Sunday, again, I wrote all day long. As mentioned before, though that hasn’t completed Megan’s story for this book. There is much to go.
So how did I do about finding balance over the weekend? Well I set my alarm for 2 hour intervals, and got up and walked around the park, then proceeded back to writing. I was also up and down through out the days doing laundry, which did get done.
It was a successful writing weekend and put me over the 50,000 word requirement for NaNoWriMo. I posted a video of my excitement on my Facebook page, where I literally spun in my chair in excitement.
I am really excited to have that pressure off of me. Now I have the pressure of finishing the book by the end of the month. The story won’t be done, as there will be a book 3, but I am closing in. All in all, I think I will be sitting about 80,000 words when I’m done, which will be about what I have the first book at.
However, food balance… sucks!!! It doesn’t seem to matter whether I’m Gaming or Writing, it makes no difference, I’m sitting at a computer = I get the munchies.
Since I started on this Get Healthy Project, I have actually been pretty good about staving off hunger and munchies with things like popcorn. Well that didn’t work this weekend. I started with the sweet tooth. So I ended up making the following:
– Carrot Cake – half gone
– Cookie Dough, that will never make it to cookies
– chocolate chip muffins, which are totally gone
Well I didn’t eat all of it. I had help from the family member units, but then on Saturday night since the kid was gone the husband unit and I got… /gulp…. Mountain Mikes Pizza for dinner.
I don’t even remember what Monday’s food was like.
So while I found balance in movement, I haven’t found balance in food. If anyone has found it, can you point it to my blog so that I can start using it?
Thank you. Now I return you to your regularly scheduled programing.
