Yesterday was a fun day. I went shopping with my daughter and grandbaby and we had lunch out, then I had to go pick up my granddaughter at preschool in the deluge of a thunderstorm. Had to rush her and all kind of stuff to the house. Then home again and I finished up chapter 4 proofing on You Had Me at Cougar.
What was fun about the parrots is that they finally were all looking in the same direction at one point and I was able to get all of their heads instead of some of them grooming themselves. So it was a model-perfect pose.
One of my beta readers organized a fun role-playing group on Facebook for the cougar series some years ago and a group of fans act out the roles. So she wanted me to add a couple of characters who weren’t getting enough showtime in the book so they could role play. How fun is that?
I just have to make sure that when I add stuff, I don’t make new mistakes. But once this is up on the sites before it’s up for sale, I’ll proof it again.
I lost 2.6 lbs this week, woohoo, and I’m still eating, so not starving myself. It’s just a matter of eating lower calorie choices. I picked up a bag of individual bags of skinny popcorn and it’s satisfying the urge for something salty. And instead of chocolate if I have a sweet craving, though sometimes I have one “square,” though it’s really rectangular piece of dark chocolate, I eat an apple.
I still eat beef, but a lot more chicken also. On the blue plan on Weight Watchers, chicken breasts are free, though chicken thighs are 3 pts for 3 oz. Now who has a weight measuring tool? Not me. So I wing it. And when I get hungry and just have to eat something more, I just steam some vegetables, add butter and seasoning, and yes, the butter counts, but I still manage to keep my 23 points or less and lose weight. I’ve lost 12.6 lbs so far and it’s working! It’s not just a diet, but rethinking what I eat.
Okay, so I’m back to work on the book. Need to take Tanner in for his shots at 8. I just have tor remember it and not get too involved in proofing the book this morning!
Have a wonderful day! I’m off to get back to mine!
