Finally back on track…

Published April 6, 2015 by S. E. Myers

Seriously, it has been a while. Moving to Lexington took a lot longer to settle than I initially believed.

Today is the first day that I am back to writing. It feels good. I am currently compiling my writing playlist. As the music plays the images run rampant through my mind. They unfold the story and I can see Andie react to her surroundings and other characters that she has a relationship with.

I’ll write more about that another time. I’m just glad to actually publish a blog piece considering that the last one I posted was forever ago. Luckily, I still have readers that follow my blog and follow my facebook page. Thank you for being so dang patient!

Lexington is beautiful! The air is clean, the grass is green and the people are so friendly. I love my new home and my neighborhood. We were very blessed for this opportunity to pop up in our life at the exact moment it was needed. It has been quite and adjustment. Staying home full-time is a lot more difficult than I remember. I was a stay-at-home mom years ago when my children were little. I assumed that since our children were older I would have more time on my hands to write full-time, boy was I mistaken. There are so many  more things that I have to accomplish and get done throughout the day. But, I am making it work. There are still several projects that need to be completed around the house, however, I am going to put those on the back burner until I have my first draft completed. Most of my day is dedicated to writing this first draft.

It feels good and I can’t wait to share it with you!

This is short and sweet, but I wanted to take the time to let people know that I am still here and still alive and working!

Down and counting…

Well, 57 pounds and only 100 more to go. I’m down to a size 18 and should be a 16 in the next two weeks. This week I start core training. It’s absolutely crazy how fast your body gets used to cardio. I’ve been doing the elliptical and although I use the fat burner workout that increases the resistance, your body still gets used to it. It’s pretty awesome that I can now wear pants that I have kept for the past 10 years – that still have the tags on…yes, the tags. I bought them thinking they would fit – and they didn’t. Of course they didn’t because I was in denial. HUGE denial. My brain is doing this weird catch up thing. I look in the mirror and can still see how I looked 3 months ago. Other people can see the more slimmer version now. Even Sunday I received some amazing compliments. This week will be difficult because of the hit-n-run we were involved in. I have a chiro appointment because my neck and shoulder are still damaged. Hurts to even lift my arm so training will be focused on belly and legs today. Trying to get my book done. Andi is an amazing character and I wish I could be a strong as she is. The pain and suffering she has had endure has been absolutely torturous. Let’s see… Life is just busy! Kids to seminary, work, gym, home, dinner, Mutual, writing, gaming, family, kids school, parent hours… and the list goes on.
