I totally overestimated how many words I had written for the first draft of my book. I thought that I had a little over 40,000 words, but it turns out that I have more like 35,000. Crap. It’s not the end of the world, but I need to get my booty in gear! Basically, I need to write 3,000 words per week to meet my deadline, which is a lot (especially when you have 5 jobs)! 😯 Let’s just say, I definitely have my work cut out for me!
This morning, I woke up bright and early at 5:01 AM to write. (I decided against my usual 4:29 AM wake-up call after getting to bed late last night.) Once I realized that I had more writing to do than expected, I put my nose to the grind and hammered out nearly 1,500 words! The words just started to flow! Thank goodness! I’m going to be a walking zombie for the next month, but it’ll be over before I know, right? 😕
Around 6:15 this morning, my stomach started to seriously grumble. I didn’t have to think twice about what I wanted to eat for breakfast this morning– it was time for a big bowl of banana oatmeal.
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup soy milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 banana, sliced
- Ground flaxseed meal
- Chia seeds
- 2 scoops of peanut butter
I poured myself a glass of iced coffee with soy milk right when I started writing, so it was half gone by the time breakfast rolled around.
Rent the Runway
How fun was my Rent the Runway post?! I loved seeing everyone’s choices and reading the comments.
So, without further ado, here are the results*:
- Portrait Collar Dress: 75
- Pleated One Shoulder: 67
- Thread Social Fairytale: 78
- Moschino Cheap and Chic Romantic Rosette: 78
- Tibi Abstract Flower: 28
As you can see, the Thread Social Fairytale dress and the Moschino Cheap and Chic Romantic Rosette dress tied for first place. I love both of these dresses, so thank you for picking them for me! 😀
The nice people at RTR agreed to send me both dresses so that I can have a back-up choice just in case one doesn’t fit right. The wedding is March 20th, so be sure to check back to see which dress I wore to the event.
*The numbers might seem a bit lower than expected because I only counted votes with the full name of the dress in them. So, “the purple dress” or “#4” didn’t count. Sorry!
Women’s World Magazine Debut
I was quoted in Women’s World Magazine this month! So cool!
Check out what I had to say about Starbucks VIA Coffee:
I loved that they called me a “healthy living expert!” 😀
