ROW80 Check-In, Week…

Okay, I’m totally lost.  I have no idea what week it is.  Let’s just call it the 2-12 check in.  🙂

Today has been such a lovey day.  Slept in LATE, enjoyed some vinyl and tea with the Hubster, went on a mini-lunch date while the kids chilled at home, and am now sitting down to get some work done.  If every day could be this low key, I’d be one breezy girl indeed!

This was the kind of week I can totally get on board with.  Productive, happy, and drama-free.  We had our 7 month doctor appointment for ‘Lil Miss Took, and she’s as healthy as a horse, apparently.  Somehow – and this is unfathomable to me – I’ve dropped three pounds.  What the what?  But the good doctor isn’t worried about it, so this is one momma who isn’t going to look a gift horse in the mouth.  🙂

I also had a killer week, blog wise.  Highest hits in a week’s time since I started blogging seriously in October.  Participated in August McLaughlin’s Beauty of a Woman Blogfest, which churned out some of the most incredible posts I’ve read lately.  Such a cool thing to be a part of.

Goal wise, things are looking good – much, much better than they had the past couple weeks.  A little bit of productivity goes a long way for me.  It’s kinda like a drug.  The more productive I am, the happier I am, and the more I want to produce.  Writing, reading, taking care of myself, and eating well in the mornings – all that stuff I sailed through.  Mid-week I’m going to add in snacks/lunch to the eating well regimen.  Whole foods, no refined junk or preservatives.  I’m really confident on being able to nail it 90% of the time during the week, but weekends will be a little tougher.  Will have to work through a little trial/error there, I think.

Exercise has been a little hit and miss this week.  Not awful, but not the five days I was aiming for.  Even so, this week wasn’t a total wash, exercise wise, and with the progress I made everywhere else, I’m choosing not to beat myself up over it.

Well, friendlies, I’ve got a couple hours now to sit my butt in a chair and write, so I’m gonna take advantage.  I’ll try to get by several of your blogs sometime this evening to encourage you!  Please forgive me if I show up a little late (like tomorrow).  The Hubster and I were discussing the Big Picture of the series I’m working on this morning, and I’m itching to get to it.

Happy Rowing!

    Losing three pounds in the second trimester? That’s like almost a miracle. Women will come from all around to find out your secret. I would keep this under wraps. I promise to not speak a word of it! LOL! 🙂

    Good to know that the missy is good and healthy. And it sounds like you’re doing fabulous also. Good news Myndi!

    Keep up the great vibes and work. I’ve got to run and catch up with a gazillion blogs. I was trapped with a clan of McFarland men over the last week and I’m now in recovery. lol And I’m behind with all those lovely posts I missed. If I stay up for the next 46 hours I might just have a chance of reading them all. What do you think? Send toothpicks! 🙂

    Love that things are clicking for you! And that you talk your writing over with your hubby. I keep mine under lock and key. My hubby follows my blog so he can find out what I’m working on. 🙂

    I wish you another week of smooth sailing–love that what you are doing is working!

    Okay Mynd, now I feel like crap considering how productive you have been. Want to churn out a few words for my WIP while you are at it? Glad to hear the bambino is doing well. Keep on rocking it!
