I don’t feel that I’ve gotten very much done in the last week. I haven’t been getting my butt in the writing chair because it doesn’t seem the best place for the ankle. And also I’m a little sad about the whole being injured thing and sorely missing going to Crossfit. And last week was incredibly hectic at work, because I had been planning on being out this week.
But since I’m not going backpacking, I’m not taking the days. What would be the point of taking a vacation if I wasn’t going to use it to go somewhere? At least, a vacation of a whole week. I hardly know what to do with myself over the winter break when work shuts down for a week. No way am I voluntarily doing that when I can’t even go exercise.
But I do have some more books up, though I need to turn focus to creating paper versions of them, as well as publishing the rest of the shorts and working on a collection. Plus get to writing. That’s the trick. Somehow, I’m able to get my butt in the chair for at least a few minutes each week and get something posted on this blog and my gym blog, but I’m not getting there at other times.
I know I can get work done if I get my butt in the chair. I just need to get myself there more often. Which should be a lot easier now that my ankle isn’t all swollen. It’s still a bit sore and tender but I walked with just a brace yesterday, no crutch, all day. I even went to the gym, though I only did weight machines and upper body work.
I might be able to get back to Crossfit – with no running – as early as Sunday. And I’m feeling more positive than ever that I’ll be taking my planned backpacking trip to the Sawtooth Wilderness for the eclipse.
