Do’s and Don’ts (Part 2)

So, how was your week?

This Week’s Do’s

~ add to Mike’s manuscript (I have hard copies of the devotionals he would like included.) (I only got one, rather than five, done this week. Next week I’ll do better.)

~ submit queries / picture book manuscripts to five agents (three)

~ research potential market(s) (check)

~ fulfill the Scribblers Submitting Facebook challenge (one market researched / one piece written / one piece edited / one piece submitted weekly) (began but didn’t complete a new piece)

~ visit five fellow ROWers (check)

~ read more in Writing Children’s Books, Editor-Proof Your Writing, Finding My Father, Worship Matters, a text for my certification, Gospel Centered Life, and my daily Bible reading (some)

~ post five conversation starters on The Word Guild Facebook page (four last week)

~ go for a walk/cardio exercise five times (three walks)

~ do a resistance workout 3-4 times (one upper body and one full body brief workouts)

~ eat better (more meal planning and more time in the kitchen) (I’m eating less . . . not a lot better yet.)

~ drink more water (Looking to lose a significant amount of weight in the next few months. This will help. It’s coming.)

~ putter some around the house (“some” is a step up from “hardly at all”) (hope to get back to Project Declutter this coming week)

~ maybe / perhaps / not likely help with the yard work (This is my hubby’s domain, but I may break down and actually help a little. He has time off. Our property should look much nicer by the end of the week.) (The yard looks much better – thanks to my dedicated, hardworking hubby.)

This Week’s Don’ts

~ don’t veg for endless hours in front of the TV (doin’ some better)

~ don’t play Tetris (which I have deleted from my phone again) (resisted temptation to reload it; did, however, get addicted to Bubble Worlds – which I have now deleted after wasting several hours; the first step is admitting the problem, right?)

~ don’t allow my body and brain to get overtired (This means going to bed earlier and starting my day with physical activity. (see above)

~ don’t sit around in my jammies until noon (getting dressed first thing every morning)

~ don’t isolate myself – unless I’m motoring along with a writing project or studying for my certification (easier when you have places to go, which is the case this week)

(updated Sunday)
