Gabrielle's Life and Writings

Gabrielle Lawson, writer of Fanfiction. I will use this space to keep a journal about my writing, the progress I'm making, stories I'm working on, writer's blocks I'm having, our adoption process and progress and just life in general.

I'm multifaceted and highly educated. I have a BA in History and an MA in Museum Studies. But I couldn't make a living in a museum, so my hobby--computers--became my living. I'm now a charter member Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician. I aspire to be a professional writer and/or poet. I am a Christian and have been living by His grace for the last four years or so, despite the MegaStress and now the GigaStress. He keeps me going, and displays His glory still, in my life.

6 miles down, 20.2 to go!

This weekend, I upped my most-miles-walked-at-one-time statistic to 6 miles. Accomplished in just slightly (less than a minute) over 1 1/2 hours. I think I finished one of those miles in less than 15 minutes, but the 5th and 6th miles were quite hard. But it's progress, mile by mile. I do think this is a good cause (fundraising for stroke research) and good for my health as well. I'm committed, and I hope people will sponsor me and help me achieve this goal.

Wondering how the sister front is going? Nowhere. No change at all. Not caring one way or the other! If the sisters aren't changed, I don't want a relationship with them. We are civil to each other at family gatherings and that's fine. I don't ask any more of them than that. And I won't pretend to be all depressed and dejected because I don't have their approval or a relationship with them. I'm happy and I show it!

Diet front: stalled at 115-116. I'm not too worried though. The walking could be attributing to this. I'm building muscle, which weighs more than fat. Besides it's still 25 pounds lost and that's saying something! And looking like something! I'm a lot skinnier now and proud of it! I look better, I feel better, and I'm in better health.

Oh, and a friend wants diet advice. She's seen my success and wants me to advise her on her diet. Hmm...could be a trend.... There's the South Beach Diet, the Adkin's Diet and now the Gabrielle's Slimfast Custom Calorie Budgeting Diet. Or maybe simplify it to the Spreadsheet Diet. Or I might entice more people with The Ice Cream Diet! (Well, I do get to each ice cream most every day now, so it is true to a point!)
