It's almost the end of 2009

My one and only "resolution" for 2010 is to finish "Winners & Losers." (That's the NOVEL that has gone from being NOVEL 2008, to being NOVEL 2009, and is now going into its third year of creation.) To that end, no fanfic writing and a considerable curtailment of my Super-Beta activities.

I got on a scale this AM at the gym, which is against my religion as dictated by my "guru" Geneen Roth, but I wanted to get an idea of where I was. It's literally been years. Under the circumstances, it's not as bad as it could have been. I probably took a bit off this past month, since I'm at 30 days off the sugar.

The big, big obstacle is the night eating. I've written about this before. It's an inherited behavior. I don't know if it's genetic or just from seeing my father do it, but I honestly have no idea how to short-circuit it. Even if it's "only" fruit and protein, there's still a lot of calories going down the gullet with no brake while I'm semi-conscious.

My only counter-balance is to keep on moving. I'm about to sign up for my next 1/2 Marathon and I want to see if I can get into the next Nike 1/2 in October.

There is a possible daily project under consideration, but I'm not sure I want to commit as I might go on vacation and leave the laptop behind. Stay tuned.

To my friends in Australia who've already passed into 2010-Happy New Year.

To EVERYONE on my F-list who has been through the past year with me: YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!

I have some Martinelli's for tonight, although I have no idea if I'll be up late enough to do a toast at midnight.

I'm stuck here at the Desk of Doom till 6PM.

What are you guys up to?
happy

Prompt #349


And these frozen and silent nights,
Sometimes in a dream,
You appear.
Outside under the purple sky,
Diamonds in the snow,
Sparkle.
