I'm back on track and in control. The crunch on my manuscript sent me into a stress frenzy you cannot imagine. For three days I edited/rewrote & revised 600 + pages. 169000+ words. 34 chapters + a prologue and last night/this morning at 2am I sent off my submission. EXHALE.

Today has been a GOOD day. I reverted back to my initial gung ho weight loss behavior. 1300+ calorie intake and a 250+ cal workout where (get this) I jogged for 10 minutes straight. GASP

The girls and I took a 90 minute drive while they napped through the forestry and hills of our small town which is the setting of my book and how I get my ideas. I listened to the music that inspires me and just let my imagination soar as I drove. A phenomenally relaxing activity I plan to do more often.

Tomorrow is weigh in day. I won't lie. I expect a gain. A substantial one but the true success of this week was getting up off the floor, dusting myself off and jumping back on the wagon.

That's all for now. Happy almost Friday people.
