Juliette’s second week begins, and her training regimen appears to be going well. Having reached the halfway point of her fitness goals, she’s learned how to craft energizing protein shakes. She also decides that in order to help herself maintain her figure, she decides to befriend like-minded Sims, such as her across-the-street neighbor, Summer Holiday.
Neither Summer nor Donna are interested in Juliette’s shakes, but Julie keeps practicing her mixing skills until she is finally able to get that promotion.
While on one of her off-day workouts at the gym, she meets Mitchell Beckman, an infrequent visitor to the gym in Oasis Springs. The two have a brief meeting at Julie’s place, and they hit it off very quickly.
On that same day, the bills arrive, and Juliette is forced to sell her rare Zombie Carl MySims figure and her old kitchen countertop to help keep the lights and water on.
She wants to write a book about her fitness experience, but without any experience, all she can do is write children’s novels. She doesn’t expect Buffy Bunny to be a hit, but if it raises her profile, she believes she will be quite happy.
Eventually, she gets her promotion, which brings her a brand new coffee pot and a new challenge: make the best damn grilled cheese sandwich around. Her cooking skill isn’t quite up to the task yet, but she replaces her old stove with something a bit more useful for everyday cooking.
On Saturday, Zoe invites Juliette over to her house for a moment. While Juliette can’t stay long, she does take a bit of time to show off her improved body to Zoe. Later that day, she calls Mitchell over to her house and asks him on a date. After some early awkward conversation, Julie is able to quickly turn things around and make Mitch her boyfriend.
