Writing, Eating, Exercising

Weekend is here! This will be a lovely, relaxing weekend. I have absolutely no plans of doing anything except for:


I'm participating in this year's NaNoWriMo. I've been failing so far. I won't meet the goal of writing 50,000 words. Okay, I've probably written more than 50,000 words this month, but most of them don't count for my WriMo-project. Read more about me failing at NaNoWriMo in my writing blog.

I hope to get a little more writing done this weekend.

Eating Healthy

Eating healthy and keeping my calory intake below 1,400 is really hard. I usually manage to stay below the 1,600 calory mark. Small success!

Today, I made exactly two bad choices: 

The first one was picking that lovely garlic dressing for my salad at lunch. Unfortunately, I didn't read the label before I bought it. If I had, I would have picked a low-fat dressing. 

The sevond bad choice was eating that caramel yoghurt. I love caramel and the yoghurt was delicious, but it had lots of calories and left me craving for more.

What else did I have today? One slice of whole-wheat bread with curd cheese, four oat cookies (in other words: boring cookies), a mixed salad, lots of oatmeal gruel with cinnamon, two cups of tea, cappucino, water...

I plan on doing another soup day on Saturday or Sunday. My first soup day ion Monday wnt really well and made me lose 700 g (approx. 1 pound).


I went jogging twice this week. Hopefully I'll be able to motivate myself to go running a third time on Saturday or Sunday. I'm also thinking about maybe going to the local health club... Undecided about that.

I will have to force myself to do some sets of push-ups this weekend. Remember: I only manage three in a row.


So many books and magazines I haven't found the time to read yet. What's better than sipping hot tea and reading a good book?


I started knitting a scarf yesterday. I might be able to finish it this weekend.

What are your plans for the weekend?

P.S.: Add me on Facebook. I'd love to connect.


  1. Writing fiction is not easy. I can't write 50K words in one month. It takes me about four months to do it. You can combine your interest in Health and Writing by writing a non-fiction book about Health & Fitness. It's more easier to publish non-fiction and millions of people are interested in health and staying fit. Losing weight is one of the most importnat issues for many people. Check if you write a book about your journey to be more healthy and more fit ... and include your dog. People love dogs.

    1. Wow, Giora! Thank you! This is great inspiration. I haven't thought about that before. I will really take this into consideration! You've made my day, honestly!

      Sending hugs to Canada!

    2. P.S.: 4 months sounds reasonable. The quality will be much better, too, I reckon.
