Despite my miserably slow start to the day, I ended up getting a lot of work done. I wrapped up the initial outline of the Operation Beautiful II book. Although Iâ€™m mostly looking for tween and teen stories for the book, Iâ€™m going to include an â€œIt Gets Betterâ€ section in the chapter about bullying. A few other bloggers/tweeters gave me this idea, and I think itâ€™s fabulous. Iâ€™m going to look for stories from adults (like you?) about being bullied / being a bully really soon. I think the bully-er perspective would be really interesting. Iâ€™ll post a link to the submissions page when itâ€™s up (hopefully tomorrow!).
After writing, I rushed to Statesville, which is about an hour north of Charlotte, to talk to a group of Girls on the Run coaches about Operation Beautiful.
Ate an apple on the way:
The dinner was for 25 coaches and featured an awesome, tasty, and healthy dinner! GOTR tries really hard to promote healthy eating so I liked that they made the effort to have a big salad bar with loads of veg instead of hosting a pizza party.
The salad bar included goodies like:
- Organic greens
- Shredded carrots
- Fruit salad
- Edamame salad
- Pita chips and sweet potato chips
- Pumpkin seeds
- Grilled chicken
- Black beans
I had a salad with edamame, tomatoes, rolls, cucumbers, greens, sweet potato chips, and hummus.
I went back some more carbs + cookie! Mmm. The cookie was delicious and the perfect drive-back snack.
The presentation went well! :) Everyone was so nice. I canâ€™t believe the GOTR 5K is on Saturday. The Spring season doesnâ€™t start until February â€“ Iâ€™m going to miss coaching for the next few months.
I WILL sleep well tonight. 🙂
