Day 107 Reporting – 2,024 Words/Day Process Log – Missed A Day

I missed my first day of posting to this blog, y’all. And the unfortunate part about it is that I had a blog post ready to go that now I’ll repurpose to something else. It just slipped my mind even though I did get In some words.

I’ll have to be careful in the future about weekends especially when there’s a change in my typical schedule. It’s easy to forget things. Maybe on Saturdays, I’ll finish my writing session with posting to the blog. I typically don’t do that. I write new words in the morning and then later on in the day (when it’s Monday through Friday, it’s after I log off work) I’ll post my blog post along with updating my numbers.

One thing that I’ve written before that is holding true, is that when I’m off, I’m off. As in, it’s not oh I wrote, but I didn’t exercise, or I exercised but didn’t remember to eat a piece or fruit or vegetable with each meal. It’s oh, I didn’t write and didn’t walk and didn’t eat anything with a lick of fiber.

Maybe I need to bring back the just-enough day. When my schedule changes like it’s a holiday or I’m going on a day trip or something happens, the just enough to write a page of fiction, small movements, and as I mentioned above – eat a piece of fruit or vegetable with each meal.

Keep moving forward. Keep getting better.
