Linking up with Anne at In Residence for Currently
Beginning: Jenny Craig. I started out 2020 eating pretty well and being active, but then COVID happened…and then I got blood clots in my lungs. It was not a great year for my health. I decided to try out Jenny Craig for breakfast and lunch and see how things go. I’ll still have to figure out one meal a day and snacks. I’m only a couple days in but so far I’m not minding the food. Would anyone be interested in a post at the end of the month about the food, how it’s going for me, etc.? I’m hoping it will be the first step in being healthier and losing some weight that I gained in 2020. Ugh, 2020…the gift that keeps on giving.
Feeling: frustrated. Right before Christmas, I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. I’ve been dealing with a lot of numbness, tingling, and pain (especially in my right dominant hand). This seriously makes it tough to do a lot of things – beyond just typing. Even holding a book or Kindle to read makes my hands hurt or go really numb. I’m finally seeing a hand specialist this Friday so we’ll see what the plan forward will be. Right now, I’m a bit miserable.
Organizing: my new laptop. I finally got a new one, because the one I’m currently using is slowly dying on me. I’m not using the new one full-time yet though because I need to make sure I have all the documents and whatnot transferred over. I do have protection and Microsoft installed though, so I’m one step closer!
Resolving: to work on my novel this year and actually finish it. I’d love to be able to query for literary agents sometime this year. Granted, I haven’t been able to really write with the carpal tunnel…just doing blog posts often leaves my hands aching. Regardless, I know I’ll be back to writing at some point and I need to make more time for writing.
Wondering: when I’ll be able to get the Covid vaccine. I know some people who work in the medical field that have gotten it, which is great because they are definitely on the front lines. I don’t know when “regular” people like myself will have the chance to get one though. Hopefully sooner than later!
