Read one chapter in marketing book: I did this. If I want to transition into a lifestyle where my creativity pays the bills I NEED to learn the principles and how to apply them.
Track Calories: I tracked them all and resisted junk food again. I need to lose about 100lb to leave obesity behind. Diet will play a large part in that.
Lift weights: I started a 5×5 free weight program. My goal with the weight lifting is to hit 3 benchmarks. 250 lb bench press. 350 lb squat. 450 lb dead lift.
Meditate 5 minutes: I used the 5 minute mindfulness bell again.
Practice typing 15 minutes: According to the software I am using I have learned all the keys (not counting numbers and symbols) in just 2 days. About 35 wpm with < 5% error rate at the moment. The goal is 50 wpm.
Work on unfinished Audio projects: I put in about 45 minutes on my project. I have the main levels done and most of the SFX. This one should be ready to put to bed in a day or two. Then on to the next thing.
Practice Typing 15 minutes a day: Yep did that.
Meditate 5 Minutes a day: And this. I found a nice 5 minute mindfulness bell meditation that I’m using.
Walk 30 min 4 + Days a week: I even walked wow 3 in a row! Setting this one to 4 days.
Lift weights 2 – 3 Days a week: No weights on walking days. Setting it to 2 days a week so I have 1 day off of exercise a week.
Track calories. Bring food to work, no junk food at work.: I was mostly good but I forgot to bring food to work. Still ended with a calorie restriction thou to woo.
Record, produce and post 1 Audio demo per month: Didn’t even think about this one. I’m not going to push to get one out this month since it’s almost over and no demo is better than a crappy one.
Work on unfinished Audio production projects at least 30 minutes a day: I did this, actually about 45 minuts worth. Much was finding sounds, checking the license then downloading the audio.
Read 15 minutes on book from list daily: I read for about 15 minutes from a marketing book I picked up a year or two back.
And I made this accountability post to boot. Go me!

This is still a work in progress but I will be taking action starting tomorrow morning on it. I took action tonight by making a goal list and starting on the task list. 🙂
Yep I’ve fallen off the wagon yet again. *le sigh*
I need to reintroduce regular public accountability to my routine.
I’m going to make a list of daily tasks tonight.
I am going to pay f*ing attention to my time management (which is abysmal at best currently)
I have several projects that need to be completed as soon as possible.
Rewards for completion will be assigned for ‘da things.

I have a message for the NSA, the Bots, the Web Spiders, the Social Media filters, and all the other techno-sniffers that troll people's feeds for information.
Let me lay this out for you and save you some demographic alogrithms...
I am Pro Choice
I am Pro LGBTQ
I am Pro Women's Rights
I am Pro Reglious Freedom for ALL religions
I am Pro Arts
I am also...
These are non-negotiable qualities of my existence on this planet. This is my "agenda".
I am ALSO a citizen of the United States.
Before this evening ends, it may be revealed that I'm in the minority.
That doesn't scare me. Because this is who I am.
You cannot make me fear who I am.
I'm not going to run.
I'm not going to move to another country.
I'm not going to "keep my head down and wait it out"
I'm staying right here... and I will advance my "agenda" in this world by any means possible.
And I'm gonna do it with style and eloquence and panache.
I am NOT AFRAID.
I am NOT ALONE.
I'm fucking awesome and you will NEVER have the power to change that.
I won't let you.
Well that was unexpected. I wasn’t planning to stop posting I just forgot one day then didn’t make a list and well I’m sure you get the idea.
I’ve changed things up a bit with regard to everything.
I’m exercising 3x a week 2x on the days I exercise. 30 minutes steady state(ish) fasted cardio in the morning. Then 30(ish) minutes of weight lifting after I get home from work. So I get 2 sleep cycles between exercise days which should help with the recovery. Before I was doing cardio on the off days or every day so only 1 sleep cycle. Since I’m just getting back on the exercise wagon (again) I want to give myself the extra recovery and jump-start the whole process.
30 minutes walking at 2.7mph average this morning
5 x 5 @65lbs Barbell squats, 5×5 @45lbs Barbell overhead press, 1 x 5 @135lbs Dead-lift
2519 calories consumed (119g fat, 246g carbs, 91g protein. 10 g alcohol)
Meditated after the morning walk.
Research on Audio production continues.
I’m still working on my outline even though NaNoWriMo has started. I want to finish something that has some remote resemblance to a first draft and not just ‘win NaNo’ this time. I’ve won Nano a few times but I will not consider showing those manuscripts to anyone (yes they are that bad and worse).
The new creative thing is on the back back burner for the time being as I need to really focus on audio production and voice over with writing on the side. Well on top of the day job that is.
Almost forgot THIS YouTube channel is giving me a bunch of helpful coping strategies!
