Fatty Journal: back on the waggon, sort of

I'm adjusting to the 1800 calories a day fairly easy.  I'm losing weight, according to the scale, but slowly.  It's more steady than a huge drop which is good.  The only problem I'm having is that I have been hungry late, like near when I go to bed.  I think I should start getting baby carrots and sugar snap peas to serve as snack foods.  The only bad thing is that when I'm reading I can and will demolish a whole bag full before I realize what I've done.

Fatty Journal: picking up in the new year

It's 2011 and I'm getting back on track with my whole eating right thing.

The first weekend of the year has been spent - at home.  I'm slightly constrained as far as cash is concerned.  So, I'm focusing on doing stuff.

Saturday I spent mostly in bed.  Because the new mattress, plus the bed set equals the place I want to be.  Uber comfy!  I did the final revisions on my novella and handed it over to my critique partners and then settled in to finish Dr Who to bring me up to pace.  Yea!  Now, I'm starting Torchwood, which is a spin-off of Dr Who that focuses on Captain Jack and some sort of paranormal services in the UK.  I'll probably have more to say about this tomorrow when I update the blog.  So, until tomorrow!

Sunday I finished Torchwood, knitted, cleaned and read Flip this Zombie and half of Frostfire - both books are out January 11th.  I'll finish Frostfire as soon as I get home.  :)

      2010 Wrap-Up

      Okay, so at the beginning of the year I was really optimistic and set myself a bunch of goals to achieve.  Now, I didn't achieve all of them, but they served to really help me light a fire under my butt and think about doing things.  So without further ado, here's the goals!

      Random Goals

      Eat more fresh produce - Apples are my new favorite go to snack item.  I pretty much fail at fresh vegetables.  I'm not really excited about cooking, so I stretch stuff out as long as I can make it last so I have to cook less.  But, I do think about eating vegetables and fresh stuff more than I have before.

      Do something daily - I fluctuate on this A. Lot.  I've been fairly good about using my Wii Fit, and during the summer I started taking bellydance classes.  I didn't in the fall because there was just too much going on to juggle all of it, but I'll be picking it up at least once a week next weekend for a while at least.  I really hate exercising; I have to convince myself to do it every single time.

      Go to a parade - Yeah, didn't happen.  There was talk of going to one, I was going to go, and then I can't remember what stopped me, but I couldn't get there.  I was bummed - and then I didn't even think of it again, so newp, this didn't happen!

      Get a family photograph - Didn't happen.  I think my dad is against this.

      Organize and cull closet - DONE!  I culled way over 10% of the stuff in my closet and organized it.  Now, I just need to organize everything else that's in there.....

      Writing Goals


      2010 NaNoWriMo - I kicked NaNoWriMo's butt in 2010!

      The Barking Dog - I had several goals surrounding this project, but early this year I decided that it just wasn't worth messing with anymore and I let it go.  Maybe at another date I will return to it, but not in the immediate future.

      Research for another project - I've done a lot of research....

      Outline for my Graphic Novel idea - It's outlined....

      Outline for Love Unexpected - Also outlined....

      Write something I believe in - I've written a lot of stuff this year.....  I don't remember what I meant by this.


      Complete another draft of a story - any of my ideas or something else - I've finished several first drafts.  I thought I only had a few stories in me at the start of the year, and now I'm juggling how I'll manage all my revisions and writing.

      Reading Goals

      Read at least two writing books - Yup!

      Read all the Robin McKinley books - I've read about half of them....


      Read something in a genre I'm not accustomed to reading - I have read so far out of my normal comfort zone, I don't think I have a comfort zone anymore.  There's tons of stuff out there I'll read now!

      Act on more book suggestions; at least four - I'm at a point right now where I have far too many books because of book suggestions!

      Crafty Goals


      Learn three new knitting things - Yup, I knit.  I knit a lot of stuff.  What'cha want me to knit??

      Have a successful patio garden - I tried this and it failed miserably.  I'm going to be putting my patio stuff on Craigslist.

      Make Presents.  Yeah, I bought presents.  Maybe in 2011!

      Money Related Goals

      Pay off Express Credit Card - DONE!!

      Pay off Khols Credit Card - Will happen in 2011!!!!!

      Okay, so there you are.  My 2010 goals.  Now what shall I accomplish in 2011??

      About Me

      My photo
      Grew up traveling to rodeos with my parents. I've gone across the world thanks to my gypsie feet. I feel sometimes like I've done everything & nothing. I've played roller derby, traveled parts of the world, have four degrees. I've done some things most people will never do in their lives & still I want to do more. I want to work with orphans & teenagers again. I'm a Christian. I have a lot of tattoos. I like art therefore I want to be art. I love people. I started writing years ago when I was a kid. I think at the time it was an outlet for me; I found escape in my word & the worlds I created. Eventually I just started to like creating stuff & that's when I started sharing it with other people. Now I think I write every day. I want to do NaNoWrMo this year. I'm also learning how to knit. I think I'm on my way to being an eccentric old woman who runs around the world doing silly cazy things and knitting while she does them. Be on your guard I have knitting needles!
