Yesterday, I ran a very fast (relatively speaking, of course) 3.0 miles. I was so speedy because it was raining and cold! It felt wonderful to push myself.
However, this meant that I was very sore today! Between all those kick drills in the pool on Tuesday and doing speedwork yesterday, my thighs were screaming for mercy.
A gentle walk was in order. James was pleased by the long walk, but not by the bath that followed.
Take-out for lunch.
My favorite salad. Ever.
In the mix:
Honey mustard dressing
And it’s especially tasty with BBQ chips on the side.
In July 2012, the second Operation Beautiful book, Operation Beautiful: For Best Friends, will be released. This book will be geared towards 8 – 14 year old girls and addresses topics like body image, bullying, cliques, puberty, relationships, community service, and gossiping, all via the message of Operation Beautiful Post-Its that were written by tween and teen girls (and a few boys).
Here’s a sneak peek of the cover.
I’m so excited – I absolutely love it. A little factoid about book publishing that I never knew before becoming an author: the author has almost no control over the title or the cover for their first book. They might have a little more say in their follow-ups book, but at the end of the day, it’s up to the publisher!
Operation Beautiful: For Best Friends was the second book I wrote, but it will be my third book to be published. Healthy Tipping Point, a healthy living guide that addresses mental health, healthy eating (co-wrote with a registered dietitian), and exercise, is coming out in June. Between the books and BabyHTP, this summer is going to be BUSY!
