I got up yesterday morning knowing that my copy edits for my first book BITE ME! would arrive. And they did, just before noon.

I don’t know exactly what I was expecting, but I have to say, copy edits can be a lot more confusing than I thought. Or maybe since this is my first set ever, I’m still just feeling my author newbieness. Either way, the next time I looked at the clock, it was almost 7:00 and I had a pounding headache and still hadn’t fixed dinner.

I also hadn’t been to the gym or stepped foot outside.

So no workout yesterday. My copy edits are due on my editor’s desk by Tuesday which means they need to be on the UPS truck no later than tomorrow. Which means I have 1 day to complete them. Not much time–especially since I’m trying to make sure they are right. This is my last chance to tweak the manuscript so I really want to make my time count.

But I’m going to the gym today. I have to. I’m no longer sore from my workout Tuesday and I can’t just sit on my ass in front of the computer all day without some movement. Well, I CAN sit without movement, it’s just not good for me.

How have y’all done this week? Jodie’s kicking major ass and CarbKiller is walking even when she’s not wearing her gear. Connie? How’s that wii? Cinde? How’s the weather? Anyone else out there wanna chime in?

I’d also like to extend a warm welcome to my sister-in-law Kellie! She posted to the Join Us thread yesterday and I’m thrilled to have her on the team. Her goal is -45 by her 45th birthday this spring. Pretty good goal, I’d say.
