Shaping up – Stream of Consciousness Saturday (Shape)



For the “shape” prompt today, the first thing that came to my mind was  the phrase “shaping up”. As some of you know, I recently started using the Wii Fit to try to lose weight (or I suppose you could say “get in shape”). Things seem to be shaping up rather well in that regard. So far I’ve lost about 8-9 pounds, although I’m not sure how accurate that is, but I’ll take it. But I do think I’ve lost some, as my pants seem a little looser. And I think doing some of the yoga exercises it provides has helped my posture some. I don’t think I slouch so much, and my center of balance seems to be getting better too.

Also, I recently started seeing a guy, and things seem to be shaping up rather well in regards to that as well. We seem to have hit it off rather well, we both seem to really like each other, and we’ll be having our third date this afternoon.

If only things could shape up for me in regards to my writing, I’ll be all set. I still haven’t been able to do much story writing lately. It seems like every time I think about trying to get some done, something comes along to sidetrack me. If I can, I’ll see if I can manage to get some done some time this weekend.
