Goals Revisited

In January, I posted about my writing goals and my plans to attain them. I also mentioned my pursuit of getting healthier and losing weight.

RECAP: One of my goals was to finish the revisions on my romantic suspense novel Island Moon by July 25th. Another objective was to finish the first full draft of Breath of Winter, another romantic suspense by December 1st. :) I came up with a schedule to work on both books simultaneously, with revisions on Island Moon four days a week, pushing through with Breath of Winter, three days a week.
Just getting in practice for when I have real deadlines!! Here's to positive thinking. :)

Mickey has been a great pal with helping me meet my writing goals!

UPDATE: Okay, not all good intentions work the same way in our heads as they do on paper. Writing two books at the same time worked for only a few weeks, due in part to life and new commitments which entered into the picture. (Have I mentioned I have a full-time job outside the home as well?)
My end objective remains the same: Finish IM by July 25th, and December 1st for BOW, only my plan to make that happen has changed. I'm working exclusively on IM until July 25th and when finished... on to the next. :)

My weight loss is progressing well, although very slowly. Since January, I have lost 10 pounds. I have reached a plateau for a few weeks, but am ready now to recommit to this goal and make it happen! I need to lose more.

Thanks to Mickey for pushing me to lose weight!

Look for another update in July.

Cindy -- Congrats on (almost) reaching your goals. I can't wait to continue reading "Island Moon" when I visit next week. Wow, 10 pounds. That's great! Did I say I was bringing my sneakers so we can get in a few walks? Anyway, good luck with your writing and see you soon!

Yes, bring your sneakers!! We will walk. :)

It's great that you are setting goals and reevaluating, pushing forward and getting it done!

Since January I gained 6 of your ten pounds, but I plan on giving them to someone else now.

Hey Cyn, I'd say you're doing fantastic with your goals. I can't even remember what mine were. I guess I'll have to read my own blog. By the way, looks like Mickey had a lot to do with your success.
