Day 68: Catching Up a Bit Here & There
Monday, February 17, 2020
It's been a pretty busy weekend and Fritzy has Monday off this week. On Saturday Fritzy and I went shopping and that was fun. He got some toys and we got groceries and we went to McDonald's. And yesterday was pretty much just a relaxing day for us. I've been feeling a little better and I'm starting to do a little bit more.
I did a chair workout this morning and that felt really good. It made me remember why I love exercising. I plan to get back to exercising on a regular and consistent basis even if I am writing a lot. It just isn't the same if I am not exercising.
I didn't have much appetite when I wasn't feeling well but starting to eat better now that I'm feeling better. Weight is pretty stable right now and my other stats look pretty good as well. Intuitive eating seems to work pretty well for me at least for now.
Did a mindfulness meditation this morning and meditation is going pretty well. Although would like to go back to reading the dhamma sometime soon.
Been reading a lot of my Breakout Novel book lately and only have one chapter left in it. It's been quite helpful and feel like my skills at writing are improving as a result. Next I'll be reading a book on improving your characters.
Just haven't been listening to podcasts in a while. So it's on my to-do list.
Tomorrow is my next nonsmoking day but I have a couple of packs of cigars bought already so I don't know how that will pan out.
Reminding myself to drink at least a little water every day.
I've come up with a new short story that I am working on now. It is a religious short story for Image Magazine that is about the Mahashivaratri Festival. I'm working on the outline right now and have come up with the main plot. It's turning out pretty well, I think. So that will be what I will be occupied with this week. I plan on the story being about 20 pages.
That's all for now.
