#AccountaClub: Friday, June 21, 2019

Somehow we’ve come around again to Friday. It was another slow week and fast week and I have no idea how time does it.

It’s weird.

Writing-wise I’m coming into the home stretch with this manuscript, it’s at an emotionally sticky part and my character doesn’t want to go through it so neither do I, but there is only one way.

Her epiphany is looming.

On the exercise front, this week was pretty smooth with the workouts. Five days, five live ones, and they were all solid, all enjoyable in their own way. Today was yoga and it was a fabulous way to end the week. The newest trainer led a workout on Thursday and I liked him; I really wasn’t sure that I would.

And that was my week. How was yours?

I guess we’re sticking to weekly? Habits are habits, it seems.

It’s felt like a longer week than it was, but that tends to happen in this brave new timeline. So much information constantly coming at us makes everything feel like it’s elongated.

Yet here we are.

So on to the task at hand, the week. If you were following along this week, you know already that I had a huge breakthrough with a book that’s been sitting. I’ve made progress in it, and it’s careening toward a conclusion, which is a nice feeling. Especially when something has stalled for so long.

When it comes to fitness, five days, five workouts, though Monday had a bit of a problem as the service wasn’t working properly. I substituted a really fun dance workout that was in the site library, and onward we went.

That’s my week. How was yours?

Bet you’ve had baited breath since…Monday, given that the Friday post didn’t post. But here we are.

I think it’s a habit now, and habits are hard to break.

Actually, good habits seem easier to break than bad ones. Wonder why that is.

OK, I’ve distracted myself long enough.

So this week. A bit on the writing and editing front, but nothing to really post about. I seem to be in the thought-heavy part of creativity, with lots of ideas floating but they’re not quite solid enough for words on a page.

I need to roll up my sleeves and get messy.

I do want credit for doing laundry because doing laundry annoys me to an extent I don’t understand given that I don’t have to go over to the lake and pound it against the rocks. I just have to use the laundry room. And yet we all have those things, don’t we?

Workouts were good this week, great trainers all week, great workouts all week and it felt a little less of a grind than last week. And thanks for all the encouragement on that front, you guys know how challenging it can be.

So that’s me. How was your week?

This week is a bookend, dentist on Monday, hair appointment today, so self-care of differing types and differing levels of “I don’t wanna.”

The Daily Burn theme this week was getting out of your comfort zone, and I did try to do that in several ways; I mean the dentist for one, though that was just good timing.

Ha.

Speaking of Daily Burn, even with the cold I had over the weekend, I hopped right back into working out and I really do think it sped up the recovery. Not all colds are equal of course. Some, like pigs, are more equal than others.

But five days, five live workouts. I rewarded myself for last month with a dozen new headbands.

I’m such a rebel.

Writing was an interesting bag this week. I came across those old comedy sketches I talked about earlier, which were just not good. That really put me in a bad frame of mind.

When I got to my project I’d been letting cool, I thought it was horrendous. Extremely, extremely horrendous. So that wasn’t awesome. I went back to it yesterday and was able to do a little work on it but it’s so incredibly first-drafty.

Which it is.

I also got back into another edit with a completed manuscript and that was, to my great relief, much better. It’s amazing, though how that kind of frustration can put you in a mindset.

So that was my week. A little shake up of routine, a little cold water to the face, and some great workouts.

How was yours?

Somehow it’s not only Friday but also the first day of March. Plus side, spring has to be on it’s way, despite the swaths of ice still on the lake and the random patches of muddy snow on the ground.

Minus side, someone set time on turbo.

Turn it down a notch, dude. Turn it down.

It’s also time to talk about our weeks. So.

Writing was not my thing this week. I started out the week tired and groggy and haven’t really regained my footing. Some weeks are like that. I’ve been trying to get more sleep–one of the goals I wanted to work on–but I have not done well with that. I blame my internal clock, which keeps waking me up an hour early on the dot.

I guess it’s almost time to move the clocks forward.

Fitness, though, is going fine, this week wasn’t as hard as last week, I think they knew it was a lot. Five days, five workouts.

So how was your week?

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?
