I am so sick of revisions. Let it be done already!! Have I complained about this enough? I seriously need to find a way to cut down on the amount of revisions I do. I need a new system. Because I swear if I have to do the extensive rewrites in Saving Grace that I did in Brimstone, I may never write another book again. This has just been freakin' painful. It's a good thing I love this story or I would have taken a flame-thrower to it a long time ago. Geez...
Anyway, in happier news - I found out yesterday that my tax return will actually be enough to fund my trip to San Francisco. I celebrated by going out and buying a pair of shoes. I'm quite relieved at that. I was beginning to stress a bit on the cash flow.
In less than happy news, the whole weight loss thing has hit a brick wall. A few pounds have crept back on much to my ever lasting cursing. In fact, I've cursed so much while stamping my feet you'd think I could have burned the pounds back off, but no. I know what the problem is. It isn't the workouts. Now that it's light out in the evenings I've been running or walking nearly every day, even the rainy ones. It's the eating. The stuffing of waaaaaaaaay too much bread and cookies and chocolate and all the crap I shouldn't be eating in my mouth. Noshing away like there's no tomorrow. Eating out, drinking wine, etc. So for the rest of this week I am becoming the Fruit & Veggie Queen. I've allotted myself one bread product a day (I'm going hardcore but I'm not completely insane) and the rest must be filled with fruits and vegetables. And of course the occasional milk product and protein. I'm going back to the Weight Watchers point system which I fell off of because...well, because gluttony is my friend and apparently in my genetic composition (thanks Dad).
I bought a couple of sexy summer dresses and I've left the tags on. I am not allowed to wear them until I get back to where I was weight wise before all hell broke loose, I lost my mind and began eating everything that wasn't nailed down.
And that's where things are today. Sorry I've been out of touch lately. Things are still pretty busy at this end and I've been concentrating more on trying to finish revisions and haven't had as much time to visit my blog buddies. But I'll get there, I promise.
