Today I posted my first article on HubPages in about a month. I had high hopes for last month's contest, but ended up being so busy with the A to Z Challenge and working on my novel - plus just life in general - that I only got a few articles written. This month isn't really looking any better, yesterday morning was the first time I've gotten any writing done since last Wednesday because I've hardly been home. Today's article (a week and a half after the actual event - better late than never, right?) is about the Royal Wedding. I took a real interest in the wedding because William and Kate are just a bit older than I am, and I love that even though Will is going to be King someday, he's so down to earth, easy going and just normal, and so is Kate. A month or two ago, I wrote an article about how they're helping to modernize the monarchy, and today's article was My First Royal Wedding: Prince William and Kate Middleton. If you watched the Royal Wedding, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Only a couple of my friends took an interest, and I enjoyed tweeting with all the other royal watchers the day of the wedding, but would love to hear more comments from people!
Besides being behind on my writing, and being so busy that I feel like I'm on a merry-go-round, the other big thing on my mind lately is weight loss. I've been trying since early last year to lose weight - I lost 35 pounds, gained some back over the summer, then have gone up and down ever since. I'm finally at the point where I'm tired of making excuses - and tired of hearing them from so many people around me - and I'm ready to get back on track. Summer's coming and I want to be able to buy new clothes, feel good, look good and enjoy doing things outside and being active. I've set a 9-week goal because I'm going to see U2 in concert 9 weeks from yesterday and we're going to make it a weekend thing in the city and I want to buy some new clothes and not feel self-conscious and gross like I do right now. So, I'm off to go for a walk before settling in to hopefully work on my novel. I have some changes I'm going to make to my blog that I hope to get done too, so stay tuned!
