A New Beginning--Update

So last Monday I said I was making a new beginning to bring some much needed balance to my life. That, of course, also included exercise.

Can we say sore. LOL

Last Tuesday and Wednesday every part of me hurt. My poor body was screaming at me, asking what the heck I thought I was doing. Thursday and Friday weren't much better, but I am determined. Being healthy and balanced is the goal.

So far exercise is the main thing I've managed to change but there have been a few other smaller changes.

One of these smaller, but significant, changes is the fact that I'm in the midst of editing a manuscript and not working on it every waking hour. Usually I dive in and drive myself until the book is edited. Not this time. This time I actually did a bit of work on it on Sunday, but didn't really start it until this morning. Today, I paced myself, taking breaks and finally stopping work just before hubby got home.

And I'm not working on it tonight. I figure it will still be there tomorrow.

That's a huge change for me, but a much healthier attitude. I'm trying to take a new view of my writing career. But that's a subject for another day.

Hope you had a fabulous Monday!
