Weekly 90 Day Summer Challenge Update

UGH!!!!! LOL

I’m not going to give myself a hard time over this. I realize it’s difficult to keep up with my ongoing extra summer goals when I have a host of other things I have to do.

WIP - Today I’m going back to editing.

Less sugar - Yesterday was the first day I was back on my less sugar goal. Did well.

IGTV - Yeah, no. lol This goal is like one of those things I feel conflicted on. I want to put together more videos, but I don’t want to compromise my need for privacy and how I feel about my inner conflicts about documenting my life for/on social media.

I slowly getting back to my normal life since being out of town.

The Crofton Triangle & NaNoWriMo

I've gotten back to working the Crofton Triangle.  I'm allowing myself a break from Twisted before I get into the revision and editing process.  

I was also thinking about taking the month of November off to participate in the National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  But if I do that then I need to be figuring out my outline now.  I have some ideas of stories I'd like to do, but that would take away my focus on writing the Crofton Triangle and getting the revision/editing done of Twisted. 

Decisions. Something I'm going to have to think about, but I don't have a lot of time to do.  It may seem like it but Nov 1 will be here in about six weeks and between the other things I'm doing, I don't have a lot of time to sit down and plot out another 50,000 word novel.  But I love the thrill of being a winner in this competition.  It tells me I have to patience and stamina to complete something meaningful and worthwhile in 30 days. 

I always have ideas floating in my head, but how can I plot an entire story out if it is the question.

Day 1

Today was the first day back in the gym and it snowed. It was hella cold outside. But I promised myself I'd do it. I have been doing some workouts at home but not consistently.   

I do need to lose about 25 pounds but this is more about getting the body moving, the blood circulating and keeping myslef in good health. 

I did about 20 minutes on the treadmill and 10 minutes doing hip and inner thigh exercises. I'm starting off slow. I don't wanna jump out there and get tired and not want go anymore.  

Proud of me. Small steps lead to large gains...it will get better.

Manifestation of Stress

I can't sleep.  I woke up in the middle of the night sweating, I was so hot. Now I can't get back to sleep. 

I have so much on my mind that I'm beginning to think it's manifesting itself in having stomach issues. Last week, I thought I had a stomach virus, but maybe it was the just stress, now that stress has begun to show out. All week it's been hard for me to eat without feeling the food sitting in my chest. Periodically continually to belch and feel uncomfortable at night when I sleep.  It's like something is burning a whole in my chest when I lay down and I feel awful. 

Manifestation of stress is no joke because its the onset of disease...meaning that your body is at some kind of dis-ease. I pretty much know the cause of stress.

Children

Work

Relationship

Dog

Bills

Things that are out of my control - but I think about them so they affect my mental and emotional.

This list is in no particular order.  It's just the day to day grind of life and I'm trying to find ways to be less stressful. I need to get back in the gym so I can physically work off these kinds of pains. But at the moment my mind can't and doesn't want to do it - so goes the mind...the body follows. 

I clearly understand that I'm not pulling the positive energy into my sphere at this moment.  I'm feeling the physical pain of it. I need to redirect the negative energy out of this hole of unmentioned unspoken fear and just deal with my issues. 

Tonight I got word that someone I know - their mother passed away of a heart attack.  Something so unexpected. So shocking. I feel for this someone I know. I don't ever remember meeting her mother, but nevertheless her grief is understood. 

I can't afford mentally, emotionally, or physically to sweat the small stuff....because in the scheme of life - IT'S ALL SMALL STUFF.
