I can't help but sit here feeling like my brain is running in too many directions.  Work, weight loss, writing, kids, home remodeling.  I'm sure there are more, but those are the main ones right now.  I'm such a scatter brain.  Am I the only one who has a hard time just completing a thought before racing off on a different one? What the heck is wrong with me. If I didn't know better, I'd call it adult ADD!

I plan on doing a little writing today. So far I've managed to re-enter 90 pages. Only 180 to go! I'm just taking it a chapter at a time, and I'll worry about the editing after I've got it in, printed, and can sit on my couch and reread it, and make notes in the chapter.  I've been brainstorming the new book, which just isnt flowing well.  Seems I need to really start retraining myself to daydream. My creative process has been dulled by years of ignoring it. Time to kick it in the pants. So this weekend I will start writing the new book. Just write, and see where it takes me.  As I've so often heard lately, "You can't edit a blank page!"

The weight issue, well, thats STILL an issue. One that has me so overwhelmed that I've decided that it is the one area of my life that I am going to put in someone elses hands. Not entirely of course, but I need help.  So that plan is to get my butt up bright and early on Saturday and make my first appearance at a Weight Watchers Meeting. In addition, I will re-up at the gym (one of my favorite places -once I'm there. No, really), and see about finding a personal trainer. My biggest complaint/excuse/issue is that I hate working out alone. I'm a competitive spirit, and solo work outs bore me to death.  And since I'm a bit of a loner anyway, there isn't a large pool of friends to draw from for support. My solution will be to hire a physical trainer. Someone to keep me accountable and motivate me. Costly, maybe, but no more so than my current habits.  My goal is not to add to them, but to replace them.  God Willing!

I HAVE managed to play guitar this week, learning "Already Gone," by Kelly Clarkson. Would you believe that until last night, I didnt realize how much better it would be for me to transpose it down by 2 steps. Now, not only in my range, but it uses and follows the same chord progressions of half of my favorite songs! Duh! lol  Still haven't gotten that broken string fixed on my blue baby, but had forgotten my other guitar is home now.  (Note to self: Buy strings.)
