So, although In Pursuit of Fitness is pretty much for the purpose of documenting my diet, fitness and health (especially for readers of Refrigerator Raid)... I've decided to digress for one post and report some other accomplishments in my life:
- I finished my third book! Finally! It is done! After writing three novels (although the second is more of a novella, really), I am starting to feel confident enough to think about sending them somewhere. This third one may actually attempt to find life by traveling through the mail in search of an agent, editor or publisher. Whether it goes into a drawer or into the mailbox... at least it's finished!
- I have more responsibilities at work! Ok... I didn't get a promotion or a raise, and this is currently a "temporary" assignment. But I'm hoping it becomes permanent (and includes a hefty raise). Proving I can handle the responsibility during the next few weeks is vital.
- I'm learning to say "no." I've cut back on my freelance work and I've resigned from my position on the Board of Directors of a writer's organization. I was becoming overwhelmed and annoyed with everything on my plate. It was time to cut back. I have other, more important, priorities that need my focus right now.
