Every month I write up some goals and then check back at the end of the month.
October Goals – How Did I Do?
- Do a split. Status? Ha ha! You can call me a lot of names, but Gumby isn’t one of them. I’m definitely making improvements though. I can now do cartwheels and roundoffs and I stretch almost every day. My left leg can almost do a side split. My right leg says, “Nah, girl, I don’t bend like that.”
- Finish editing my book. Status? She’s Losing It! (the book version of this blog, writing about how I lost 50 lbs. through bodybuilding) is almost finished. Yay! I’ve given drafts out to two beta readers, and my husband, Henri, finished reading it. What’s tricky about turning a blog into a book is that a blog is written for not only the core group of followers, but also new readers, so there is a lot of explanation that needs to be edited out from the book version. For example, if I just wrote “Henri read my book” and this was your first time reading this post you’d be like, “Who is Henri and why do I care that he read a book?” If you are reading the book though, by page 40 you should know who all the main characters are without little reminders.
- Help Little Henry with his fine motor skills. My son is four and has trouble holding a pencil and writing. So this month we have been tracing letters and using Play Doh but not enough for him to write them by himself yet. *sigh*
So in summary: These goals are going to take a lot longer than a month!

How about you? Do you have any goals for the month?
