Challenge Check in Week 1

Well I hoped to have more to report, but like Bianca, I'm off to a slow start. I have a plan in place at work to get organized I just have to getting up and moving. As for home, well in a word that a bit of a diaster, one I hope to start to tackle this weekend with the help of my famliy.

I mean the husband and sons helped to make the mess, they should help clean it up.

I did manage to write one review here and started a second, but I'm still woefully behind at Romnace Junkies, so I have yo fit that in as well. I think what I am going to do is start with the blrbs for all the books I have left to review, then I'll only have to write me feelings on them. Hopefully this will get me good head of steam to get then in ASAP. Also on the writing front I do have a little written for a story that contiually rolls around in my head. Even if nothing comes from it I would still like to get more written on it, if for nothing more than to get it out of my head and onto paper.

I haven't started to exercise, but I've cleaned out the snack food at work so I can't munch as much when I'm there. The next step of course is to get back to packing my own lunch instead of eating on the run. Although I did manage to eat salad and soup for lunch yesterday.

The Christmas club right now is my saings account. I will put the first payment so to speak in there when I get paid tomorrow.

So it's not a fast start but a start it is and I just want to say thanks to Bianca for suggesting it and letting us all have each other for support while we strive to reach are goals.

See you all next week.


  1. For whatever reason, this year has been particularly hard to get started on the right foot. It may have something to do with the "placement" of New Year's this year - right before a weekend - but I'm not entirely certain. However it worked out, you're not the only one having a hard time getting cracking on your goals. I'm in much the same boat.

    But it's all cool. At least we have goals in mind and we have a plan to work toward them. So we didn't start on day 1 - that's okay - we'll start now, right? Are you with me? ;-)

    And thank YOU for joining me in this. As they say, misery loves company! LOL!

  2. I'm with you. We can get through this together. :)

  3. I hear you. I've been slow off the mark this year too. I think I've managed to exercise once. LOL But I'm determined.

    Like both of you, I have several goals I'd like to meet this year, both personally and professionally.
