I’ve been so busy being all healthy and stuff that I forgot Tuesday is our check-in day!
(It’s still not too late to join Sidney and I on our Healthier Me 2013 journey! Join us on twitter at #HealthierMe13)
So, as you remember, Sidney Bristol and I decided that 2013 is our year to get healthy. Hells, yeah. So last week I went Caveman, and kicked off the paleo way of eating.
The benefits have been LEGION, but I’ll summarize the highlights so far.
1. I lost 11 pounds. NOW, I know that’s too much to lose in a week. But I firmly believe that most of this was bloat and water weight due to the icky processedness of my previous diet. I went from eating probably 80% processed starches to eating 100% fresh protein, fruits and veggies. I don’t expect this insanely fast loss to continue, (it’s already slowed down some) but DAMN was it a nice kick start!
2. My brain is less fuzzy. My concentration and mood have improved since improving my diet.
3. My energy levels are climbing. I’m doing more, and feeling better.
So all in all, I’m really pleased so far! I intend to keep on trucking with the diet, and I’m hoping to join an old friend at a dance class this week, so maybe my exercise routine will actually exist.
What are you doing for Healthierness? Joining us? Did you post your update?
I started practicing my autograph when I was a kid. I think it really cranked into high gear when I was about twelve years old. I’d say, “why yes, darling, of course I’ll sign your album!” and scribble my name with a flourish on my notebook.
I didn’t really think much about how I’d get “famous”. I just thought maybe someday someone would hear me sing and just plop a billion dollar recording contract in my lap. I certainly didn’t think about writing novels at that age. Books were too much fun. Why make them a job?
When we were about 15, my best friend and I decided we were going to have a band. We’d be called “Angelic Vixen.” We never wrote any songs, or picked up any instruments, but we had a bitchin CD cover planned.
In retrospect, I’m glad that didn’t happen. For one, I’m a mediocre singer at best. For another, while I love to travel, I dont think I’m cut out for life on concert tour. And I adore writing. So signing my first, real autograph will be the result of a lot of hard work instead of luck and happenstance.
Other things in life haven’t been as easy as I expected either. But you know what? It makes me appreciate it more. As I embark on the next chapter of my life, I know the value of striving for something. And that’s something that you can’t learn from anyone except life.
I’m pleased to announce that the winner of the SINFUL TRUTH giveaway is Savannah Chase! Check your email for goodies, Savannah.
I’ll be guest posting at a couple of places this week, so stay tuned for more! There will more than likely be some good chances to win, if this wasn’t your time!
Thanks for playing,
Hi loverlies! The goodness keeps on rolling around here. I promise to start chatting with you more frequently, but at the moment I’m inundated with wonderfulness!
I had to let you know that my erotic horror romance novella, SINFUL TRUTH, has been accepted for publication by Ellora’s Cave! Get ready for Verum, a deliciously mysterious cursed Egyptian warrior, and Bryerly, the sweet country girl that’s caught in the middle of some brutal killings around her town. When these two get together, keep your A/C handy. I think you’ll need it.
I should be able to post the cover for your viewing pleasure soon. Until then, ciao bellas!
