NaNo = Weight Gain?
Let's just put it this way: NaNo is not my favorite skinny jeans' best friend. In fact they are enemies and cannot exist in the same room at the same time. Like begrudging family members at Thanksgiving, they are vying for my attention. Skinny jeans will say manipulative things like, "You know you'd rather be with me. I'll make you happy." Then NaNo will call saying, "You promised me this year. Don't let me down." Then skinny jeans will gather allies in the closet so every time I go in there I'm barraged with, "Why don't you love me anymore?"...and "Did I do something wrong?" I'll explain to them that I still care for them, but I just need a little time to myself right now. Then I'll look down at my phone and realize NaNo has left me twenty messages!
AND I SCREAM, "You two are driving me crazy!"
Okay...*breathe* that was a little dramatic. But that's how I feel. I am spending every spare second of my time on revisions that my waist line is paying the price. I used to work out at least three days a week. As of today--only Day 9 of NaNo--I haven't worked out once, and I feel it. With the combo of Halloween candy laying around for me to eat when I write, and enticing Fall baked goods calling my name, I am out of control!
Does anyone else feel like this?
