November - A Month of Challenges

Hi everyone! I hope your November is going well. I'm busy with two big challenges going on, on top of everything else in my life. If you're a writer, you've probably heard about NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, in which authors strive to write a minimum of 50,000 words in 30 days. So far, I've finished one story that I'd already started before the beginning of the month, and I've started another. There were a couple of days where members of my family needed medical attention. I got behind, but I've been able to catch up.

Another challenge I'm involved in is a fitness challenge. I've been going to a small fitness center for a year and a half. It's helped, in that I've built up a lot of muscle, and stopped gaining wait. But, I wasn't losing much. My fitness instructor introduced a new challenge where the end result was a fitness photo shoot. I decided to give it a try. Since September, I've been clean eating, and taking in A LOT of protein. Plus, I've been going to class, or exercising at home at least five out of seven days of the week. So far, I've lost twenty pounds. The challenge ends December 4th, the day of the shoot.

So, until then, I'm challenging my self everyday to write words, eat five high protein meals, and avoid the temptation to take a day off.

How are you challenging yourself this month?
