Another disappointing month on the challenge front.
- The weight loss plan. Officially a total failure. At the end of August I weighed in at 175.7 which is up on last month by almost a pound. I haven’t given up trying altogether, but the will really isn’t there any more. From here on in I think it is more a case of being aware and not having too much that is bad for me, for my health’s sake. As far as the weight is concerned, so long as I don’t balloon back to the 15 stone or so I was some time ago, then I’m not going to beat myself up. I deserve a treat now and then. I refuse to feel guilty about it.
- The write more plan. This one has picked up a little, but still not totally back on track. I’m not overly pleased with the progress, but neither am I disheartened. I’m writing most days. I’m doing okay. I’m preparing another pitch at the moment for Sweetpea. Fingers crossed.
- The read more plan. I’m still ticking over on this one. I’ve read 64 books, of which 60 count towards the challenge. I currently have 6 part-read. Technically, I’m about 3 behind. But some of the books have been over 500 pages long, so I still think I’m doing fairly well. Also, I’m still proofing the 700 page book for a friend. I’m not going to feel guilty if I read a few shorter books to help me catch up. I do kinda feel like ‘so many books, so little time’ though at the moment. I could really use a time-turner so I can put in more quality reading time.
- I’m still updating the blog. We’re well into the second half of the year, and I’m still here. Never expected that, to be honest. Yay me.
