The Truth About Reaching Your Goals

GOALS

This quote to the left is a status update from my Facebook feed in May 2013. At the time, I was doing Weight Watchers and dropped about twenty pounds. My mouth dropped open when a coworker asked me this. Thirty days? It took many months and a lot of hard work. I exercised daily and stayed within my allotted point range. I lost at a rate of 1-2 pounds a week and sometimes I plateaued….

I’m sure you’re…

#ChickLitMay A to Z Scavenger Hunt

#CHICKLITMAY

  SASSY is my favorite way to describe chick lit as a genre. People often ask what I write and like to read. When I respond with chick lit, I sometimes get weird looks, or people questioning what the genre even is. I won’t go into an entire post about why chick lit is an awesome genre and people need to stop judging everyone’s choices, but what I WILL tell you is why I love…

A Pinterest Win! (Kind of)

A PINTEREST WIN!

I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time on Pinterest. I haven’t visited as often as I have in the past, but I still frequent the site quite a bit. I have a board dedicated to each of my books (which, I’ll admit, I suck at maintaining), one with all my books, crafts, quotes, fitness, and of course, organization, which I think everyone has. When people link from Pinterest to Facebook and…

What I Dreamed Versus Where I Am

What I Dreamed Versus Where I Am

Today is kind of a big deal for me. On May 9th, 2014 I published my first book hoping to pull at your heartstrings and read the last page with a renewed hope in young people. Pieces of it All began as an entirely different project than the published one. The book began as a thriller, turned erotica, turned coming-of-age. As I got to know my characters, I wanted more for Beth. As her creator,…

When You Expect It To Be Easy

When You Expect It To Be Easy

I ended 2015 on such a great note. In August, I released Jay Walking and my March release date for Sparing the Heart looked on point. On top of that, I used NaNoWriMo to write the first draft of Dating for Decades, and I also wrote the first draft of a novella. Basically, 2016 was before me with the potential, and probability, of three releases. THREE! I couldn’t have planned it better. Except I hate…

My Current TBR Pile

TO BE READ

Hi everyone! Yes, it’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted. I love participating in Julie Valerie’s blog hop every month and she offered up a topic this month. I was relieved she did because I’ve got NOTHING. Well, not anymore. I actually have a post I am working on, but not in time for this hop, so you’re getting my TBR pile. Oh, my TBR (To-Be-Read if you’re clueless). It’s bad. Really, really bad. I…

Step Crazy

STEP

Seven thousand. That’s my number. I usually reach it, though sometimes I miss. But why is this number so important to me? This is my daily step goal. My name is Tracy Krimmer and I’m slightly obsessed with my FitBit. Almost a year ago I got my first FitBit. This was around the time my husband got his Apple watch. I loved his watch could track his heart rate while exercising and wanted such a feature….

Sparing the Heart is LIVE!

RELEASE DAY

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! That should bring me some luck, right? I hope so — today Sparing the Heart is live and available for purchase in the Kindle store at Amazon. This has been a long day coming. Since I wrote Caching In, readers have asked about Kate Hayes, Seth’s sister who was a little, well, bitchy in the book. She wanted to protect her brother. Well, now a few years later, it’s Kate’s turn to protect…

Fun With Lists

FunWithLists

Since I don’t keep busy enough with writing (insert sarcasm here), I thought I would participate in a challenge! The great thing about this challenge is it’s weekly instead of daily, so I should have an easier time keeping up with it. I love lists. I make them all the time. The problem is sticking to them. I have a daily planner I fully intend to use daily, and find myself forgetting to write in…
