Holy...Freaking...YUMM!!!!! (And LiveFit Day 3)

Day Three of Jamie Eason's LiveFit Trainer was all about Legs. I like working out my legs because I feel like they should be strong, and the workout was easy to start, but when I added more weight (You're supposed to push your limits in this phase), I could really feel it. Incidentally, I don't feel sore in my legs (yet), but if the rest of the workout has been any indication, I should feel it tomorrow morning.

On to the Holy...Freaking...YUMM!!!!! header. I've been struggling a bit with the eating program part (this is a LOT of food!), and I decided to start making some of the recipes so I'm not eating the same things day after day. I imagine lots of cooking will be done this weekend. 

I got my Supplement pack from today, which included Rich Vanilla Whey Protein Powder. I've only ever tried Chocolate Vegan Protein Powder, which I adored, but I'm open to try new things. The first recipe I tried, which called for Protein Powder was Jamie's Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread.

Soooo good! It honestly tastes like French Toast. And each slice is about 55 Calories (makes sixteen servings). I subbed Splenda for the Xylitol, which isn't recommended when Clean Eating, which this program recommends, but it was all I had. The rest was all the way it was supposed to be and aside from a slight artificial sweetener taste, it was awesome. I can only imagine how it would be with the Xylitol.

I'm looking forward to the rest of this plan. I read a blog yesterday, Live Life Active, where she went through almost all the different workouts, and this is looking tough. I just keep reminding myself of the shoes I'm going to buy myself when it's over. It's so easy to say that I'll power through now, on the first week, but I'm just trying to keep my motivation high. I have to do something. That's all there is to it. I'm excited to keep going on. And I have my Mantra.

No workout tomorrow. We have new registers at BBW, and I have training right after the main job before working for another three hours. Hopefully they're easy. 

Ciao! ♥

I'm Moving!

Talk about a long hiatus!

So, things have been happening, or rather, things have been stalling, and I've decided that I need to actually do things in order to achieve what I want to in life. Where I want my writing to go, and what I want to dedicate my blog to.

When I first started MJA I had no idea what I wanted in a blog. I just wanted to write, and I hoped that the readers would follow me. And it took awhile, but you have! But I've been terrible at keeping up with this blog because I was trying to turn it into something that it just couldn't be.

I'm an author, first and foremost, and upon meeting other writers, I've learned so much and want to pass on that education to others, like they've passed on to me.

That said, The Modern Jane Austen isn't going to be getting updates anymore. This is a blog where I wrote about my life, some reviews here and there, and just a few tidbits about my writing journey. But it was mostly a confused mess, IMO, and I've …

September Musings on Writing

Another year has gone by.

I'm 20 days out from my 31st birthday.

I'm 24 days out from embarking on my first cruise to Canada.

I'm thismuch closer to finishing a second manuscript this year.

So, it's shaping up to be a pretty exciting month for me. I'd REALLY like to finish both manuscripts so that I can get to working on their second drafts before NaNoWriMo kicks off in November.

Yes. I'm using my thirties as I should've used my twenties: As someone who wants to write books for a living. Novel concept right?

But honestly. Six years ago when I started at my current job, I was under the illusion that what happened to Amanda Hocking would happen to me. Haha! I was so cute and naive when I was 25.

The last year or so, I've tried really hard to understand what it means to be an independent or self-published author. How you have to put your best work out there, not just the crappy first draft that you were just relieved to finish. That editors want to help yo…

Free Money! 3 Tips For Giving Plasma

Today, I wanted to talk to you about giving Plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that carries your blood cells all around your body. When you give plasma, they use it to make medication, and it also helps patients who have experienced trauma, have bleeding disorders, and more. I started giving Plasma back in 2007 when gas prices were upwards of $4 a gallon in Missouri, where I was living and needed all the extra money I could get. At the time, I got about $40/donation, but now I give through OctaPharma here in CB, with different pricing (It varies based on your weight).

It hasn't always been easy, though. A few years ago, I was unable to keep giving, and I couldn't figure out why. When I went back to try to raise money for an upcoming vacation the first few times I tried, my protein levels were either too low or at the bare minimum, so I thought I'd share some tips that help.

1. Three hours before you go, start eating something with protein.  I usually give in t…
