Song of the Day: Life in the Mines, from the game Donkey Kong Country (GBC version)
Word Count: 44,762
Well, as many of you know, today is the summer solstice. Some of you also know that there’s a heat wave going around.
To be honest, I didn’t expect to write over 2,000 words today. I had planned today to be a light day, but I guess I was so eager to write I just managed to find time.
So in a previous post, I said I was planning something big. Here’s what I’m planning (and work with me on this):
I need to lose weight. Big time. Right now rocks orbit me as I walk (kidding).
As a way of motivation I want to lose weight based on the number of words I write for this month.
No, not lose over 40,000 pounds, but burn that many calories during the rest of the year.
As a general rule of thumb, it takes 3500 calories to burn a pound of fat right? So what I would plan to do is divide the number of words I write this month by 3500 and try to lose that many pounds by the end of the year.
An example: We take the current word count and divide that by 3500. We get…12.77. A bit low but I still got 10 more days to write.
Of course, if I hit my goal, there’s nothing stopping me from going forward.
I’m already making some lifestyle changes already, but a little extra motivation never hurts!
What do you guys think?
