I read an article today which was rating the days of the week. Sunday was 4th out of 7. It’s good, but towards the end, you feel the life sucking out of you, as you realise you have work tomorrow. Yep, I’ve got that feeling. I had so much I wanted to do this weekend, and I feel like I’m heading into another week, with hardly any of those things done.
I have had a nice relaxing weekend, so all good.
Only I’ve not touched my novel – so BAD! BAD BAD BAD. I knew I wouldn’t yesterday as I had plans, but I really wanted to today. I don’t even have an excuse. Again.
Anyway, I had a quite a few goals for this week. This is how I got on with them:
2x runs, 2x 20 minute + walks, 2x 10 minute walks (getting off the tube a stop earlier): I’ve done 3 (THREE), runs (woo hoo), and 2x 10 minute walks. Not good, but that extra run is brilliant.
Print off another section of The Man of My Dreams. I’ve got another 12 pages, that I know about. Maybe the missing bits are in those 12 – I think I’ve got more missing than that though. I found a whole load more than just those 12 pages.
Read said 12 pages. I read all 12 pages, and most of the rest I found. I’ve still got some to read through, but I’ve maybe read 30 pages this week. That’s good.
Find the missing pages of The Man of My Dreams (pray they’re on the hard drive). Print more. I’ve not done this as I had found more that were printed. I need to find the rest (still got my fingers crossed for the hard drive).
Read more. As above, I read about 30.
Start with sticky notes of plot points etc. Um. No. That was my plan for today that didn’t get fulfilled.
Fast twice: I managed once. I started on Thursday too, but had a really long tiring day, and didn’t have the patience or anything to think about fasting, or cooking. I had half a baguette with ham for dinner. Oh dear.
2 book reviews, one for here, one for Novelkicks. I’m hanging my head in shame. Nope, neither.
I’d like to come up with some great excuses, but I don’t have any new ones – work was still busy, I’m still exhausted.
I hope this week I’ll finish a couple of things which should lead to a small respite in the craziness. Small.
My goals for this week are almost the same as last week:
2x runs, 2x 20 minute + walks, 2x 10 minute walks (getting off the tube a stop earlier)
Find the missing pages of The Man of My Dreams (on the hard drive??). Print them.
Read 10 pages I currently have, and ones I will hopefully find.
Start with sticky notes of plot points etc. I started this way back, last year, the year before? But I’ve put them in a note book, rather than up. They’re no where near complete. I’ve got blue butterflies and hot pink squares. That’s pretty cool right – should give me a push! Hope boyfriend won’t mind me decorating the bedroom walls/mirror again!
Fast twice – at least – I also managed this last week! Up until today, I’d lost weight. I need to stop weighing myself daily!

Fingers crossed for this week. Good luck with your goals, whether doing ROW80, or if you’re just setting yourself goals.
