Good News Monday

It’s been dreary and chilly here (but thankfully no snow or ice) and I feel like I’m running on half empty thanks to our busy schedule lately…so I need some good news!!

  • I’ve completed three full weeks of Power 90 and started week 4 yesterday.  I haven’t been rewarded on the scale (yet) but I can definitely feel muscles!
  • I can do more pushups now than when I started.
  • I can hold a plank from my toes, though I still do the pushups from my knees, and I can’t do that one downward dog to runner’s stretch move yet.
  • We’re loving the Vitamix and have used it at least once every single day since we got it.  The only thing that was a complete fail so far – homemade V8.  Ugh it was terrible.  I couldn’t even save it by using it in soup.  Back to the drawing board on that one!
  • Steady stretching has been helping my plantar fasciitis considerably.  As long as I sit on the edge of the bed in the morning and give my foot a good stretch (pulling on my toes, really stretching the calf and arch), then I can walk into the bathroom without pain.  Keeping my good shoes on all day, every day, is also helping.  I can exercise without any pain.
  • The Horse Master of Shanhasson finally went to $0 on Amazon (to match Smashwords pricing) and WHOA, I was stunned to see how many “sales” I had as soon as that happened.  Hopefully my pricing strategy will be effective.  I deliberately want a free read, and then one cheaper at $2.99 to hopefully hook readers into the rest of the series, which is priced slightly higher (but all under $5).  The first book is 20K shorter, and the other 2 are over 100K so I think the slightly higher price is justified.  We shall see!
  • Still slowly working my way through “3Aliens.”  The dam has not yet busted free yet but I’m still making headway.
  • I have Tuesday off this week from the Evil Day Job to get my hair spiffed up again and hopefully get some nice wordage!

What’s your good news?

  1. And catch up on your sleep 😉 I think your pricing is right on target, and not just because I love the stories. Have a wonderful week Joely!

  2. I know your pain on the plantar fascitis. Man, I hobbled in agony every hour after getting out of bed for, what, a year? Before you and Mom got me decent shoes for standing all day on ceramic tile?

    Seriously, Sis, I still can’t thank the both of you enough for those. And I’m glad to hear yours is finally letting up!
