I am aghast to realize how much time I’ve already wasted on this project. I’m getting close to the 450-word mark and I have nothing to show for it so far. It’s shocking, and a little disgusting, that I have nonetheless carried on this long.

To be aghast means to be shocked, possibly with the effect of feeling terror, amazement or disgust.

A synonym for aghast is appalled. I’ll probably have this feeling again if I keep going long enough to get to the word appalled. Then there is horrified, dismayed, flabbergasted, shocked, staggered and stunned. I’d better brace myself.
