Well, #AccountAbles, we made it to the end of the week. The very, very distant end of the week.

And it’s been a week.

Though I got a lot done writing-wise, but I’ve been trying out Fade In, a reasonably-priced screenwriting software. My computer, without telling me, decided to update itself, and somehow I lost a whole bunch of work.

A. Whole. Bunch.

I think I managed to recreate most of it, but that’s not great. So save often, people. We get so used to programs that automatically save, sometimes we assume.

Do not assume.

But it’s amazing how having a comfortable place to work can up your productivity.

As for fitness, it was a really great Daily Burn week. Fantastic workouts, I loved the trainers this week, and today’s was Barre-inspired, which I always find fun on a Friday. Five days, five live workouts. They seem to have gotten those technical difficulties under control.

So the world maybe be in shambles, but my week was pretty effective. How about yours?

I had the strangest urge to write “1998” as the year. That’s a whole drinking age ago, as horrifying a thought as that is.

Why 1998 of all years?

I do not know.

Time glitches aside, it’s Friday! Let’s talk about our weeks.

I’m starting with fitness today. Five workouts this week despite a possible career-ending injury last night: my remote slid off of the couch and dive-bombed the bony part of my ankle. Now, you might think, come on, that didn’t hurt that much and I say to you, OH MY GOODNESS THE PAIN WAS RIDICULOUS.

Utterly ridiculous.

It’s still a bit bruised, but I made it through the workout and now I will rest for two days.

This week on Daily Burn, we set benchmarks of our fitness, testing how many of various exercises we could do in a minute. Push-ups, sit-ups, squats, BURPEES, and alternating lunges. We recorded the number of reps and will repeat in a few months apparently. It’s a great way to track progress.

Writing-wise, my new writing spot is really, really working for me. It’s comfortable, it inspires me, and I got a first draft of something in a new medium done this week.

Time to go back to the books.

So that was my week, overall pretty productive. How about yours?

Can you believe it’s February? I can’t. At all. I would have sworn it was June five minutes ago.

Except for the ultra-frigid temperatures, of course.

Here we are, back at Friday again, and it’s been a week. My chair arrived yesterday, and I put it together with maybe a tiny bit of difficulty. And by a tiny bit, I mean I only cursed the stars for about an hour.

But it’s pretty and it’s comfy and my writing spot is very nearly complete. Small details for ease of use, including possibly a new keyboard. But the lamp has made a huge difference. It’s very cozy, it’s bright, and I like it.

And I’ve been writing. While I haven’t gotten back to the novels quite yet, I’ve been working on some other formats, and it’s been really good. It’s easier to focus in my little space; it’s almost like making an office out of nothing.

As for the exercise, five days, and I have just closed out January with a full slate of workouts. Five days a week, all month. Here’s hoping February will be the same.

So that’s me. How was your week?
