    A Druid's Battle Log

    Fitness: - Walked 4600 steps. Nutrition:  - Only cooked frozen meals today. I got a little too caught up with cleaning and organizing stuff today. I'll have extra time to cook something tomorrow though since I have it off. Intellectual: - Revised for an hour and I have 5 pages left. I feel like I need to go back over everything again, but that's just the perfectionist side at work. I can nitpick at this thing forever. At some point I have to call it done and take a chance. So, almost done. - Read for probably an hour and finished Tia Torres' book. First book finished for the year, 49 more to go to reach my goal.

    Fitness: - Walked 4092 steps, mostly from running errands, basic running around, and doing chores. - Yoga 20 minutes. Nutrition:  - I just had fast food since I was out and about. Calorie intake was around 1400. Weight is still stubbornly 140. I'm also still trying to figure out what to cook for tomorrow, but I haven't decided yet. I'm craving Italian but we'll see. Intellectual: - No revisions today from all the running around but I'm hoping to make that up tomorrow. - Read for over an hour today. Books are due back at the library soon (again) so I need to finish whatever I can before then. I should probably stop getting books at the library and start reading the huge pile I still have at home.

    Yeah, that is very true, and thank you. I'm not very good about asking for help at work when I've hit my limit, unfortunately, and I know that's something I need to keep working on so I don't run myself ragged. Thanks, I'll do my best. Thank you! Thanks! I love to read, but I haven't read as much in a while because I've been so busy and also because of that same thought, that I don't want to be distracted from all my other goals. But like you said, it's important, and it also helps me be a better writer, so I'm trying to make it more of a priority this year. Thanks for stopping by!

    Today was a super stressful work day and I ended up working late, so pretty much everything I'd planned fell by the wayside. Didn't do yoga, ate a frozen meal (after barely eating anything all day), and otherwise didn't get much done. I didn't want today to be a total loss, though, so I walked around 1000 steps and revised/edited my short story for about an hour and got through 4 pages. Gotta admit, it's getting harder and harder to work 10 to 12 hours a day, especially without any breaks. It hasn't been too bad the last few months because we've been kind of slower (except for today, which was nuts), but it'll pick back up again soon and then the real insanity will start. I feel like I should be able to handle it (along with everything else), and I'm just being lazy, but it's just so exhausting. Anyway, I'm considering trying indoor rock climbing (if time permits). I'm kind of terrified but excited too. It's definitely outside my comfort zone, hence why I want to try it. I'm still researching it, though, so we'll see.

    Fitness: - Walked around 5061 steps. My foot is really hurting today for some reason though, so I may skip the walk tomorrow and rest a bit. - Yoga 20 minutes. Nutrition:  - Bought something from the food truck for lunch. Today was Dutch-Indonesian food (really, chicken skewers and steamed rice, not the best, but decent). Had the last of my leftovers for dinner. My batch cooking lasted 4 days. Not bad. Intellectual: - Revised for maybe half an hour. It was a fight the whole time, but I managed to fix the first page and I think it flows much smoother now than it did before. Hopefully edits will be a little easier from here on out.

    Operation Fly By Night

    Wow, that's awesome! Sounds like a tough race, but looks like you're getting a good plan in place. Good luck!

    Yesterday: Fitness: - Walked around 5100 steps. I wanted to do yoga too but I didn't quite make it. Hopefully today. Nutrition:  - Ate my leftovers and a few snacks. I think I'm getting addicted to these pop-tart bites because I've been eating 2 packages at a time. Probably a good thing I ran out yesterday LOL. Calorie intake was around 1300, maybe a little over. Intellectual: - I got a little too caught up with reading so I didn't do anything else. The book, "My Life Among the Underdogs" by Tia Torres (from Pitbulls and Parolees) finally came in at the library and I couldn't stop reading it. I'll have to try to make up the time today for revisions. I'm really trying not to procrastinate on finishing this short story. I'm getting down to the final rounds, which tends to make me extra critical and less confident about my writing abilities, which of course makes me want to avoid the story like the plague. I keep thinking, "What if nobody likes it?" and "No one will want to publish this, it's crap," but I know I just need to ignore those negative thoughts and finish the work.

    Fitness: - My coworker wasn't in the office today so we couldn't walk together, but I still went out on my own and walked 4556 steps. Nutrition: - Ate my leftovers and some snacks and that was about it. Total calorie count is 1299 (well, around there). Still hovering around 140 pounds. I can't quite seem to go lower. I'm not sure how (or if) I need to adjust or if I need to give it a little more time. Intellectual: - Revised for about a half an hour rather than the hour I wanted. Still, I got through a page so I'll take it (although now I don't like this page and I need to tweak it some more). - Still plan to read for about 20 to 30 minutes. I keep going back and forth between 2 or 3 different books. I'm not sure I like any of them yet.

    Fitness: - Walked 5229 steps. - Yoga 20 minutes. Nutrition: - Breakfast: Muffin - Lunch: Garlic chicken and roasted potatoes - Afternoon snacks: Apple, pop-tart bites - Dinner: Chicken tacos and a taco shell broken into pieces as "chips" (I was craving tortilla chips like crazy so I did this as a substitute. Not the same LOL.) - Evening snack: Mandarin orange Total calories: roughly 1305 (I never know if this is totally accurate). I was a little worried I wouldn't like what I made, but everything tasted really good. I'll have to make it again. Intellectual: - No revisions/edits today. I wanted to give it a day before I dive back in for another round. I'll start edits tomorrow. - Read for about an hour.
