Heeeeeeeeey you lot! It’s me again. And I have lots I want to share with you today. I’ll try to keep things brief(ish) so it’s not a big wedge of text, but try to keep up, huh? Buckle in. 😉
You know I’m part of the Joined Up Writing Podcast crew, right? Well . . . in Thursday’s episode (get it here if you haven’t found it yet) I might have put my foot in it a little. Okay, a lot, but can I just say, people say funny things under pressure!The episode was about keeping fit while while writing and this, believe it or not, is a big deal for me. I’m sooooo poorly most of the time, it has a lot to do with my fitness and weight and eating habits and blah, blah, blah, blah.
I suppose I can talk more about those specifics another time, but while recording, I jokingly told Wayne that I would do a new little bit of exercise every day and report back on progress in the following episode. -_- Well the episode is out there now. Live. And that bit has not been edited out. *sigh*
Obviously none of you are going to drag me over your knee and spank my legs if I don’t do it – I hope! – but I’d feel bad about saying something and then not doing it. So . . . I have been doing it. I borrowed a set of headphones (decent ones) from a friend and downloaded an app to help me log the things I eat. That, hand in hand, with different exercises I can do indoors or outdoors, long or short, I have been logging my process every day.
It hasn’t been a week yet, so it’s hard to say, but I did get an odd moment of fatigue about about 4pm while sitting in the car this afternoon. That sort of abrupt and crippling crash isn’t unusual for me, I’m sad to say, but I can say that the episode passed sooner than usual. So that’s a plus, right?
Also, with this app, logging each and every food I eat is making me think carefully about what I consume. And the calories. Plenty of slip-ups (come on, half a week!) but I think I’m getting into my stride. Hell, I’m even writing this with a bottle of water beside me rather than a Bubble Tea or rum laced with cranberry juice. *shoves the remnants of Easter egg foil under the table*
Meh. It’s all about baby steps, right?
If you don’t know what this is yet, then for the love of all things tasty and delicious, please, please, please check out this site.
Caladria is the name of a world created for the purpose of housing the tales of a new fantasy magazine called Fab Fables. I’ve been Chief Editor over there since the project went live and we are actively seeking new authors to write for us. All the time. If you’re curious, or want to write for us, then follow this link for details.
I also thought it would be nice to take a moment to thank you all for reading and sticking with me and liking and commenting. It really does make my day when you talk back to me and I love knowing that you enjoy the time you spend reading my brain vomit.
It also struck me that I don’t talk much about myself here, so I thought I’d ask if there was anything you wanted to know specifically. You know . . . what moves and grooves the lady behind Ileandra Young and Raven ShadowHawk.
Let me know, eh? ^_^
