Writing Goals

I don't normally set New Year's resolutions in place, but I want to have things to focus on. So I'm taking my writing first.

I'm setting writing goals: first get my new ebook out. Second I need to get busy on Macy book 4. I want Secrets and Target of Vengeance redone and made into ebooks. I have a couple other book ideas to get working on.

My goal is to put out an ebook, a new book, two second edition books, an offshoot book, a cookbook off shoot, and go from there. Those are just for me.

I also want to see a book out for my other author. It should be in early January. As we missed my first two deadlines to get it out. Just call me frustrated. It will be out soon.

I want to write more hubs. Hubs on writing. Hubs on publishing. Hubs that inspire people who want to write to sit down and start. I want to encourage up and coming writers. But I want them to see the realistic side of writing as well.

Those are my writing goals for 2015. Wish me luck

Health Goals

Diabetes testing

Yes, I am a Diabetic

I have spent the last eight years eating better and working to lose weight. I did a thirty day blog about my progress on my journey.

I have made huge strides. I've lost 110#. Which is an entire person. I have twenty-three pounds yet to lose. They will be the hardest.

I am healthier than I have been in twenty years. I feel great. However, I've had a personal set back. I was placed on insulin on December 23, 2014. I felt as though I had failed. I was doing everything right, but it was not working. I have developed a sensitivity or allergy to most oral meds. Leaving no other option.

So, my goals for 2015 are to eat so I am able to get off the insulin. I have been told no more than five to ten grams of carbs a day. Lots of lean meat, and protein. I'm going to give it a try. I am going back to planking for core strength. I have to find a way to get exercise. While I've been told dancing around my living room is a start, I find it hard to keep it up for the fifty-four minutes of most CDs.

I am looking into yoga on Youtube. Not sure it will keep my interest long. Anything which seems like work will not last long. But I will give it a try.

The goal is to be healthy and medication free. Mostly because on my income meds come out of my grocery money which is already limited. I want to beat the odds.

Selling the House

Making a Move

I have listed my house with two different realtors. Neither one of them ever showed my house. Not sure how they expected to sell it.

Having finished with them I have listed it on my own. I listed it on Zillow.com http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/4354-W-M-76-West-Branch-MI-48661/106550618_zpid/ and on Craig's list. It is reasonably priced and I am willing to accept reasonable offers. The first week it was listed I showed it. I have had requests for a land contract which I am unable to do and it says that right in the listing. I've yet to have an offer. People tell me they love it. I think financing is the issue.

I don't know how to over come the financing issue. I'm not a bank. I just know I am ready to load a UHaul and move away from here.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with here, except I suffer from SADS (Seasonal Affective Disorder) and winter makes me crazy. I don't like cold. Snow is great to look at but can go away after a day or two. Which just doesn't happen when you live in the north.

I have a desire to move south. I have a location picked out. Not a home yet, but at least an area. I have friends in the area I want to move to. So, my goal is to sell the house.

Resolutions

If you are setting resolutions, make the realistic. Make them an outline to get you where you want to be. Most of all make them for yourself.

Best of luck with them. May 2015 bring you everything you hope for.
