2019 Summer 90-Day Challenge Last Update

🤯 After I came back from Detroit and I had that bad toothache I never got back on schedule with my three summer goals. 😩

As for editing and revising Jinxed I’m on the last one third of chapters. It has some further rounds of editing and revising to go before it gets to the beta readers. I’m somewhat behind on my schedule. 🤦🏽‍♀️

I don’t eat as much sugar. I’m still working on this because this is a long term health goal that will never go away. Minimizing eating sugar is important to my overall health.

Lastly, I stopped making IGTV vids. I’m more focused on podcasting. Despite the fact, I love the video medium perhaps it’s not the right platform for me considering how I feel about social media. 🤷🏽‍♀️

I’m not disappointed. I did achieve one of my goals which was to finish the first draft of Jinxed. And now I’m also done doing the first round of edits. That’s an accomplishment. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Weekly 90 Day Summer Challenge Update

I posted an update last Sunday because I wasn’t able to do it last Friday. And yesterday, well I just plain forgot. lol

Here’s the update.

WIP - I’ve started editing Jinxed. I started with my paper copy, but because I’m also using ProWriting Aid, it’s just easier for me to edit there than on the paper copy. In the past, I’ve started editing on paper and then eventually ended up editing on the computer. I also listen to the drafts. I can follow along with the words. This way I know if I’m missing a word or things read wonky. I’ve done three scenes out of 100 so far. if I do two or three scenes a day, I will be finished before the summer is over. I’m making mad progress considering I wanted the first draft completed by August 31st.

Less sugar - Still sticking with it. I weigh myself on Sundays. So I don’t know how much I’ve lost this week. I’m feeling a little bloated so who knows. I just have to stick with it because I don’t feel tired all the time. I do feel like I have more energy. But I also have to do better. For the most part, I do not have added sugars. But like yesterday, I fasted for 20 hours, so when I did eat, I ate baked drumette wings (5), a small side salad, a piece of garlic bread (ugh) and meat lasagna (why?). I stayed within my calorie goal, matter of fact I was 300 calories short, but my goal is not so much the calories, but the carbs and added sugar.

IGTV - Not doing so well on this goal. I didn’t post any videos this past week. I’m struggling for content. At least I think I’m struggling for content. Maybe I’m not being creative enough, who knows. But this is my back and forth thing with social media. One minute I want to do it, the next not so much. I think I will talk about this in my weekly podcast - Introverted with Michelle Carey.

Okay folks, that’s it! Until next week…
