September 26th, 2019 – 365

When I write target today, I will have done it. 1Y1K is tomorrow, but today will mark 365 days in a row of a thousand words. I can’t help but wonder how many words I’d have if I’d started this years ago. Then again, I may not have been able to do this until last year. It was a long journey to get to the point I had the self discipline to do it, and even now I still have a lot to work on. Earlier targets, better efficiancy, more outreach to the community. There’s a long way to go yet.

Speaking of a long way to go, I was only able to write a thousand words yesterday, as I am burned out from my ‘1K+’ project. That was a dangerous experiment, but if I keep stress training it in bursts like I did last week it’ll get easier. My tolerence will grow in time, but I won’t be raising target any time soon. That said, I would like to see writing a novel in 3 months becoming the new norm. At least I’m close to this now.

One area I am doing a lot less well is my diet, which got screwed hard this month. I blame work. Heck I don’t care if someone from work sees this because it’s a fact: stress causes weight gain. That said, I am getting to the point where I am dominating my job rather than the other way round again. I’ll get back in the driving seat, but I’m going to need to run a calorie defecit soon to correct for it. But not yet, last thing I need is even more stress.

Back to work. One more day.
