ROW80 – Round 1 – Check-in #17

Time for Wednesday’s ROW80 progress update. After all the amazing cheerleading on Sunday from my fellow ROW80 gang (thank you), I am kicking this week off hard and luvin’ it!

Writing Goals:

  • Complete outline of WIP
  • Write 1750 words a week, on average 250 words a day (can be on WIP or other writings like flash fiction, character development, world building etc)
    628 – so far
    I did my first ROW80 writing sprint for this round today. I postponed my lunch hour until 3 pm so I could join in with  the crew. I had a meeting run late which meant I joined in at around the half way mark but I still jumped in. I am going to try to do this at least a couple of times a week! Loved it!
  • Finish James Scott Bell book
    In progress
  • Read 2 other writing craft books
    1 down – 1 in progress

Social Media Goals:

  • Blog – post 4 times a week
    3 down – 1 to go
  • Blog – post ROW80 progress reports twice a week (Sunday and Wednesday)
    Wednesday – done
  • Tweet/Comment on at least 10 blogs a week
  • Comment on 1 new blog per week (ROW80 or otherwise)
    Not yet

Healthy Lifestyle Goals:

  • Cardio – 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday)
    1 down – 1 scheduled for tonight – 1 to go Saturday
  • BowFlex – 3 times a week (Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday)
    1 down – 1 scheduled for Thursday night- 1 to go Saturday
  • Maintain a daily food/migraine journal
    Complete – After 2 months I have a solid idea of what I am eating and what I need to cut. It’s relatively the same week after week so it feels kind of pointless. I think I’ve got all the info I need moving forward.

How are you making out with your ROW80 goals?


Urban Word Wednesday: Spark in my ass

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

Spark in my ass: A sudden burst of positive energy; determined; a feeling of invincibility.

Examples Of Use:

Hubby: are you going to work out tonight?

Me: yip, I am planning on doing two rounds of Zumba Express and then my BowFlex routine. I am super pumped to get 3 workouts in this week and maybe walk the dog! Oh and I’m going to clean the house later to. And my WIP is screaming my name. Gotta hit my word count this week!

Hubby: who lit the spark in your ass?

Memy ROW80 cheerleaders and B12 baby! I’m like a new woman! You’re going to have to get your back healed if you want to keep up with me!

Hubby: I guess so maybe.

What lights a spark in your ass? Come on…share the wealth…
