Brief Humor & Check-Ins

Author: October Cycling & Writing Goals πŸš΄β€β™€οΈ (Heaven Help Me)

Well, Arcians, I’m stepping out onto the proverbial literary edge here. I have a fitness goal for October: bicycle every day in the month for a minimum of 30 minutes.Β  That’s right, 31 days x 30 min = around 15.5 hours of my tush on the cush. I’m ready…I think.

Writing goals: write at least one solid chapter of my novel, GOTD. I’ve been really struggling with writing; ever since my laptop went kaput, my motivation and confidence seemed to go along with it. My protagonist has literally been stuck inside his burning house for about four months now and is glaring at me, vehemently,Β from offstage. I can’t say I blame him. The chapter is like watching a Roomba try to vacuum an octagonal room: we’re going to be here for awhile.

What are your goals for October? Want to join me on the fitness journey? Leave a comment below and we can drag each other over the finish line. I’ll even have Mr. Swinebotttom do an uplifting cheer. It’ll be great fun.

Oh, P.S. This has happened to me, twice (see below image). This tells me I’mΒ  doing this cycling thing really great, or really badly. Yes, that’s a broken pedal. And yes, I didn’t think it was possible either. I pedaled the pedal off, if you will. Straight off. Twice. Lock your doors at night; I’m a mad woman. πŸš΄β€β™€οΈ

  1. Good for you Peregrine! I have been on a walking fitness deal all summer, then I hurt myself last month, took 3 weeks to get over that. I immediately hurt myself again on my second time out. Was finally feeling better, then hurt myself a third time on Wednesday. I’m hoping to be ready to walk again Monday when the sun will finally shine again for 2 days and be warmer. Then it’s back to way below normal temps right through to November. I’m doing something wrong!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈ

    1. Thank you! Your story sounds similar to mine. I hurt myself as well exercising sometimes and just during normal activity if we’re being honest haha! πŸ˜‚ I’m glad you’re recuperating. Have a lovely weekend and many lovely walks! Do you ever take Muffin with you on walks?

      1. No, Muffin is a stay at home kitty. It would be too wild taking her with me. If I had gotten her as a kitten it would have been easy to train her for walks. But she was just too wild when I got her.πŸ˜€πŸ˜Ί
