I can’t believe it’s already 20 November. That’s just insane.
In exactly a month’s time I’ll be saying goodbye to an awesome half day copywriting job. Though I’m sad to leave there – and I’m only leaving because it was a contract position – I’m really, really excited about what lies ahead for 2014.
I’ll be working from home again, writing full time, only this time it’s going to be different. A year ago I had no clue what direction I was heading into, I sort of just jumped into a little bit of everything. Now I know exactly what I want to do:
- Copywriting and freelance writing for clients
- Blogging on goodhealthbuzz.com and steercareersuccess.com
- Writing and publishing my first novel (I’ve given myself a year)
- Publishing a healthy eating/living eBook or something similar
I have tons of other ideas, but I’ll need to put them on the back-burner for now, because frankly – this isn’t a hobby. I’ll be working normal office hours and getting in my workout before the day starts like I’m doing now.
Everything in life happens for a reason. And I’m sure there was a reason I was given these 5 months at a busy advertising agency – thrown in at the deep end – and then pulled back out again to go back to what I was doing. I’ve stopped questioning it and have just accepted it’s what’s meant to be… I obviously wasn’t meant to give up on the freelancing full time just yet!
In other news…
Last week I reached my goal weight. Not that I was trying to lose weight, but with this new healthy eating plan, it just happened… I FINALLY lost those extra 3kg that have been hanging on for the last, oh I don’t know… 5 years! Now I’ve just got to maintain it… and that’s where that little A4 hardcover book comes in handy! Nothing like seeing those numbers in black and white blaring at you to get things back on track.
Today, I moved onto Level 3 of the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 DVD. I’m not joking, there were times this morning when I thought I was going to die. Thank goodness for the pause button! But, I got through it and I know it might sound a bit silly, but it feels like a HUGE accomplishment for me. This is my sport and I want to be at the top of my game. I’m addicted to exercising. If I go a day without it, I feel lost.
The eating plan…
Breakfast is still pancakes and strawberries with yoghurt every day, spinach and zesty/chili lentils for lunch and roast/fried veggies for supper. I’m realising though that my body needs a little more sugar, so I’ve got to make an effort to slowly bring back some of it. Just not go crazy about it.
Well, that’s me for today, but before you go, I’ve got a tiny favour to ask (again)…
If you have time, I would really love some feedback on things that you enjoy reading on this blog. I’ve got some ideas for things I want to do here from 2014… I think it could grow into something truly special. 🙂
So, please. Thoughts, comments, ideas – let me know what you think…
Thanks guys… I appreciate it, have a FAB day!
