I forgot to do one of these last month…

1. Do something active for 20 minutes  5 times a week

I’m doing okay-ish on this one since I got my bike out. Usually it’s 30 minutes 4 times a week or so, but I try to get in a good walk in between. The real challenge will start now that the weather is cooling off and we’re getting into “indoor” season.

Can we just agree that I can take November off? There is just no way that I can do Nano and work out at the same time. I basically give up tv and exercise for the entire month every year.

2. Travel

This past weekend was a 5 day weekend for me as I used up my vacation days for the year. I’d hoped to go to Gettysburg, but that has fallen through. In leiu of that, however, I do have tentative plans for international travel in 2016 and 2017. Hopefully those will have better luck.

3. Writing/Publication

More rejection letters…I now have letters out to every agent on my list. I’m still waiting for responses from about 7 of them. I’m not terribly optimistic at this point.

4. Pay off some debt

Done! I paid off my tires this month, and I am hoping to get the smallest of my student loans paid off by the end of the year.
