Weekly 90 Day Summer Challenge Update

I’m here in Detroit. I’m at my daughter’s various bowling tournaments. It’s been a great and fun week so far. I have another week to go.

WIP - I’ve been getting brief opportunities to edit while I’ve been sitting in the bowling alleys. I’m lucky I’m getting in about 30 to 60 minutes of editing. I haven’t done any writing on one of my projects that I have for Camp NaNoWriMo. I have to get to 10,000 words by the end of the month. ***SIGH***

Less sugar - I’ve been eating less added sugar, but I’ve been heavy on the bread this past week. I will see on Sunday how much weight I’ve lost. While on travel, it’s been difficult to really keep within my parameters of what I’m trying to do. I’m still making the best decisions I can given the circumstances. Right now, I’m munching on my sweet green bell peppers. Good in Vitamin C and has fiber.

IGTV - I really thought my trip would help me do more IGTV content. The most I’ve done is do IG stories. I’m really bad at this goal. I have to overcome this blockage I have when it comes to posting these videos. Working on my internal so I can share my external. I guess.

Until next week.

Weekly 90 Day Summer Challenge Update

I didn’t get a chance to write my June 21st weekly update. I was out of town on a college campus visit. That went well.

WIP - I FINISHED JINXED!!!! And I’ve gotten the editing copy printed for me begin edits next month. I was thinking of choosing another WIP to work on for the remainder of the 90 days, but I’ve decided to stick with Jinx. I’m already doing Camp NaNoWriMo for one of my other projects. I’ve kinda put The Crofton Triangle on hold until I figure out the structure changes.

Less sugar - I’ve been keeping up with the less sugar. So far since June 9th, I’ve lost 7.1 pounds. I thought it would be much harder than expected. I do notice how much added sugar is in a lot of things we eat. Especially in fast food choices.

IGTV - I haven’t posted on my channels in the last week, but I’ve gotten feedback how people have been liking the vlogs. On a side note, I’ve also been keeping a regular schedule of posting my podcast. I’ve gotten some promising numbers about the growth of it.

Weekly 90 Day Summer Challenge Update

Making very good progress with my Jinxed project. I wrote over 2500 words this week. I want to be finished by the end of month. Another 16 days. Oh boy. Pressure.

This week I didn’t have any significant amount of sugar. I actually loss five pounds. The most sugary thing I had this past week was a Chick-Fil-A Peach milkshake. LIFE. It’s so good. I didn’t do any extra exercise. I did my usual of 5000+ steps a day.

I’ve been sticking to my goal of posting on my IGTV. So far, I’ve posted three videos on my @michellescarey account and three videos on my @michellecareywrites account. I’m very proud of this.

Happy #Thanksgiving #2011

Every year I have so much to be thankful for. My health, my children, my husband, my family, my friends, my job, my dog....but I also have new things to be thankful for;  I started my business, I'm writing my first novel, and for the first time in my life I feel like I'm guiding my life in the direction I wish to pursue.  

I'm under new management. 

Everything I've been given, the ups and the downs - they all have been blessings, they were character builders.  Giving me more sense of self and the world around me.  I've had my challenges.  I've had my easy moments, I've been blessed not to have a lot of hard knocks; and for these things I am thankful.  

I give praise to my life for the moment I am being.  I am thankful for the small moments and the large accomplishments.

But most of all, I give thanks to the Creator for allowing it all to happen.... XoXo
