After months of slacking off, I have finally started going back to the gym. I can tell I have lost some strength since I have to lower some of the weights I was working with in certain exercises. It feels great to go back though and after a week and a half I am already feeling better. My goal is to get back up to five days a week, at least two hours each day. I spend one hour on cardio and one hour on free weights, then, there’s the walk to and from the gym which adds a little extra. Check back in for progress updates. I also need to go to Sodimac (the Peruvian Version of Home Depot) and buy a scale to weigh myself. I can’t be ballooning up here, they DO NOT have clothes in my size and there are no Big and Tall stores that I know of.
Work progresses on the book. Larry and I met Monday and discussed the latest six chapters we had written and I made some revisions and edits after returning from the meeting. We assigned the next six and talked about the final twenty chapters or so and what needed to happen. Larry agreed to work on the short story I had started, it needs to be more of a mystery vs thriller if we are to submit it to the magazines I am considering for publication. We figured we would have the book finished by the end of April which brought up the discussion of when we want to start work on the second book. We’ll set this book aside for about a month before we start our first edit, so we figured we could whip out a few chapters on the new one before we dived into the first edit. I just never realized how much work was involved in writing a book and we haven’t even started in on the publishing side yet.
My fantabulous Sister has just returned from spending a week in Italy. They had a farmhouse in the Tuscan region, visited Venice and Florence, drank wine and generally had a great time. From the couple of photos I have seen, she was “stylin” while she was there. I imagine George had to keep an eye on her to keep all those lusty Italian men away from her. They went with a couple of their best friends, the Grants, who also enjoyed themselves immensely. She has been retired for several years now but since her husband retired, they have turned into globetrotting vacationers. I can’t wait to see where they go next.
Enough said for this entry. Once again, Happy Hump Day everyone. Hope you week is going as well as mine.
