Sunday Check-In - #ROW80

I had to really push the boat out this week as next week is half term and I will have my four-year old at home, and we have plans for every single day of it, so I know I will struggle to get as much done. Over all, I ma really pleased with how it went.

Weekly goals:

  • Two book reviews a week. Done. I managed to read and prepare the reviews for 4 books this week. I also read a third of another but have since declined to review it. The writing itself was beautiful but nothing actually happened and I was so bored and disinterested I couldn't bring myself to finish it, and I will never review I book I haven't read all the way through as that would not be fair.
  • Write a minimum of 100 words of new fiction every weekday. This didn't happen every day as my planning for NaNo and reading took priority again, but on the days that I did I far exceeded the word count goal, so I ma considering this as a success.
  • 5 blog posts a week. Done
  • Visit and comment on the blogs of at least 5 other #ROW80 participants every week. Sadly not this week, but I will make up for it by doubling this goal for next week.
  • Concentrate on one room a day and have a good clear out. Not completely finished, but only one room left.
  • Exercise at least three times a week and eat more healthily. I managed the exercise and there is not a single part of me that does not hurt, but in a good way, and I feel much better for it. The healthy eating on the other hand went completely out of the window this week.

Monthly goal
  • October - Complete the NaNo Road Map course. Done. Just waiting for feedback on a few points and a little bit of last minute prep before it all kicks off next Friday.

  1. You had a great week! I love your clean out a room at a time goal. I may have to implement something like that as I'd love to downsize even more in hopes of a move next year. Wishing you a fabulous week!

    1. Thank you, unfortunately this week is going much much slower. Fingers crossed for an end of week push. Hope you have a great week.
