In this next week when I am up here with my Mom I want to devote even more time to my writing on my book and especially my character in the book as I rough out the possibilities for me meeting with David when I return in August. He has tasked me to write 10 hours on my “shitty first draft” and I have only written an hour so I have 9 more hours to go and 6 days up here and 6 days crossing the country. So if I put in an hour to an hour and a half up here that will leave me 2-4 hours left to write while on the road. I can do it if I wrap my intention around it and stop avoiding it as I have been doing for the last 3 weeks.
Other Accountability – 1/3 has been mediocre. I don’t think I have gotten any bigger as my clothes all fit the same, but I do feel fatter. I think I feel that way because my consciousness around eating and taking my time with the food and following it has been spotty and has been replaced with conversation with my Mom and whoever has been with us at dinner. I have also started some unconscious habits that have led to this mediocre rating, like having some cookies and milk before I go to bed and grazing on some chips and other snacky things during the day. I am going to tighten down a bit on these things and look into why I am reverting to some of these habits while I am up in this place I love with my Mom.
2/3s – Has been mostly non-existant, except for a couple of returns from town runs where I, sherpa like, sweated my way from the dock to the cabin with 4 or 5 loads of supplies brought up from the dock, or where I ran around town gathering the supplies at all the various stores we go to in order to stock up. I have only gotten in 2 swims (other then dips) which is way off what my dream was. My dream was to swim every day and that just hasn’t been able to happen as the weather has been SO damn cold and rainy and the water temperature has hardly ever gotten into the mid 60s which is COLD. So maybe in the next week things will improve but it isn’t looking good.
Well it’s off to the airport with Karen now see you all in a day or two.
