Oh it has been a rough week. The pattern that I put in place during the first three weeks of the year fell apart on me this week.
My only goal for this round of ROW80 was to spend an hour a day with my characters. Well my only goal that I have written as a part of ROW80. Two other personal goals have been in full swing for a long time now.
Since last July I have been on a weight loss journey. I’ve lost over 30 pounds and I’ve taken my BMI from just over obese to just into the normal weight category. I’ve been blogging about this journey at SimplySidney. I have 4.2 more pounds to lose before hitting my goal weight. Totally doable, right?
In my evil day job I am a self-employed certified project manager. I have just a few clients (I’m also a mom of two little ones) and I’ve known for sometime that I will be losing a client later this year, since they have sold their company. I’ve been working on getting a new client and I finally have one, yeah. Unfortunately this client will be paying much less and hour, bummer, although they are providing me with a lot more work. Yeah for the finances…total bummer for the writing time.
Mix in some personal and family issues and you get my rough week. A week that made finding time to write impossible and it even worked against me in my weight loss journey.
I met my ROW80 goal one day this week, well I guess one day is better than nothing.
For my weight loss journey I need to pull on my “can do” attitude from the last 30-weeks. For writing I’m going to take what I have learned in the previous three weeks and try to find a new way. The only way to go is to push my story forward. No wandering around, just push forward.
Here’s to a week that is better than this past week!
