Monday gym

Good appointment with trainer P. I must admit that I enjoy the Pilates-style mat work more than the straight-up strength training, but it is a good combination of different things...

In more significant news, I met my deadline late this afternoon and am now a Free Woman!

(Relatively speaking - I've got a couple other things I've got to write in August, and I think I will have one more pass through this book manuscript in September once I've got some editorial feedback - but it is MAJOR to be done, not least because this is now the first time since 2005 that I have not had a book contract hanging over me! NB as a Young Person with books and no contracts, I wanted contracts; then I got contracts and realized that really it is much wiser to have the books first rather than the other way round!)

Finishing this book has really taken it out of me - the last week has been pretty rough. I'm going to play it by ear for the rest of the week and try not to kill myself with over-exercise, as tempting as it may be!

Right! No overdoing it! And lots of vitamins and fluids -- see if you can head off travel related illness at the pass!
