Update on New Year’s Resolutions

Bet you thought I forgot all about my pesky resolutions made 6 months ago. Well, I didn’t. Been working on them. Chiseling away at each one. So here’s the half year later update. 🙂

Resolution #1: Lose 35 lbs in 2011 and keep it off.

Progress: Getting there. Dropped 20 lbs since March 21. Working out 5 days a week for an hour a day and eating low carb. Feeling more energetic.

Resolution #2: Finish drafting my second novel by May 2011.

Dunzo!!!!  Finished drafting March 31! Revising last 3 chapters this week. Sending to beta readers. Will begin querying after Asia trip.

Resolution #3: Send out queries until someone falls in love with my YA novel.

Progress: Sent out batch of queries last week. Will continue until I leave for Asia. But realizing this book may not sell.

Resolution #4: Meditate and play with Emerson more.

Progress: Meditating before bed every night this week. Snuggled with and pet Emerson. Usually play tug-of-war and fetch 3-4 nights a week with him.

Resolution #5: Speak my mind  when asked.

Progress: Still trying to do it. But finding people very angry when I say No and disagree. Doesn’t exactly make me want to spend time with them.
