For some reason, I'm really sore today. I've been diligent about going to gym nearly every day---I'm averaging 1 day off a week---and normally I don't have the day-after aches, but today...damn. I almost talked myself out of going and doing weights last night, but I went anyway. I didn't even up any weights, but when I started feeling nauseous on the second to last machine, I decided I needed to stop. And now today, my legs feel like they've run a marathon for some reason. Will still go and do my cardio tonight, though. I like doing those workouts a helluva lot more than the strength ones.

And I hate my scale. I'm seeing the positive effects of the working out---I could wear a sweater yesterday for the first time ever that didn't divulge every bulge, and I have *way* more energy than I used to (generally speaking)---but not on the scale. I know it's to be expected, but it's a little discouraging. Not stopping me though. Just...hate my scale.

Craig is doing much better, thankfully. Still working too hard and still not ready to go back to working out because of a lingering cough, but much more energetic and himself. I'm relieved.

Much to do today. Three days until Alicia's party, I have a buttload of laundry to do, and presents to wrap. I'm going to respond to individual fic comments later this morning but thank you to everyone who read yesterday. :)

Gym didn't happen tonight. Around 7:30, I started feeling really nauseous and I didn't shake the feeling until almost 9:30, so I decided to give myself the night off. I started feeling sick last night at the gym, too, so I think I might be pushing myself a little too hard. Not necessarily with gym stuff but with the running around all day and maybe not eating as good as I should. I just want to get past this birthday party; then I'll be OK. Hee. I'm always saying that, aren't I? I just need to get past this, I just need to get past that.

I got the Echoes comments done, but I have to do Frost yet. There will be another Frost chapter up tomorrow, so I'll do them then. That's after I go to the store for all the baked goods I'm going to need. And finish my laundry. And get the ironing done. And put together the goody bags for the party. And put together the pinata. And...oi.

I'm feeling a creative crunch. I have more stories in my head than I have time to get out. They're not all fanfic; I've been working on my OF, and now I have another original story that I'm going to be starting as soon as Frost is complete. I'm going to leave Echoes as my only fanfic story for now, beyond the two ficathons I'm currently committed to.

I have to believe I will get it done. I am the only one who can make it happen. It's just a matter of keeping the right balance. A positive attitude. That's what it takes. Belief in myself.

Damn. I'm sounding like Stuart Smalley, aren't I? Hee.
