Monday Motivation

“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”

-Louis L’Amour

Today has been a great Monday. I am currently experimenting with a Weekly Goals list as well as a daily To-Do list to help me achieve those 5 goals.

This Weeks Goals

  1. Record my first episode of The Mission For Mom Podcast.
  2. Create character bios for my three lead novel characters.
  3. Daily blog posts (xoxo).
  4. Finish the novels outline.
  5. Lose 2-3 lbs from my tummy.

Today’s Accomplishments

  1. I ran for 3 miles and burned 411 calories on the treadmill.
  2. I can currently do about 3/4 of one chin up, multiple times throughout the day. HA!
  3. I did ab, arm and leg work-outs for an extra 30 minutes.
  4. I read a chapter of my current romance novel, The Light of Paris, by Eleanor Brown. I wasn’t super into it, but I give ALMOST every novel a 5 chapter test unless it’s really bad. I’ll let you know if it’s worth it. It’s important that I read books in my genre to keep my writing style fresh and up to date!
  5. I took my daughter to the pool and also on an hour long play date with a neighbor.
  6. I took a two hour nap in preparation for my night shift. 8 pm to 3 am. Oy!

Overall today was great as far as my family and fitness goals were concerned. I started the morning ready to write and realized I had to use that time to backup my computer and free up some space for my audio programs. I’m really disappointed I didn’t get a chance to finish any of the book, but I think tomorrow I’ll block off at least 3 hours to it. 

On a very side note, I broke things off with the 24-year old. He was very sweet, but I don’t have time at all to date someone that isn’t spectacular. I barely have time to write my own To-Do Lists everyday. I can’t wait until I have the weekend to cuddle my girl and write late into the evening. This week I’m working Monday through Thursday. Then I get 3 days of vacation!

Tomorrow I will work on my book! I will spend QUALITY time with my girl!

I’ll let you know how that goes;)
