Time to check in on those pesky resolutions I made January 1. It’s been 10 months almost…
Resolution #1: Lose 35 lbs in 2011 and keep it off.
Progress: Lost 22 lbs total and then gained four back in September. So right now just 18 lbs toward my goal. But I couldn’t exercise the past two months due to pinched nerve in my leg. And I was overeating again. Hoping to get closer to my goal by Dec 31.
Resolution #2: Finish drafting my second novel by May 2011.
Dunzo!!!! Finished drafting March 31! Finished editing July 1. Started querying agents in mid September.
Resolution #3: Send out queries until someone falls in love with my YA novel.
Progress: Sent out 117 queries for my first book. Waiting to hear back on a full request, but also realizing this book may not sell.
Resolution #4: Meditate and play with Emerson more.
Progress: Taking walks 3-4 times a week with Emerson. When we don’t walk, we play. Meditate a couple times a week–need to work on that.
Resolution #5: Speak my mind when asked.
Progress: Find I enjoy saying no. It’s nice not to bow to social pressure and do things I hate. People tend to appreciate tactful honesty a few weeks after the fact.
