My mid-afternoon snackies included: a crushed Kashi TLC bar, strawberries, and yogurt.
And a mini-pita with a smidgen of cheddar cheese (melted in the microwave, of course!)
To hold me over through my part-time job night-shift and the gym, I ate three PB celery sticks around 5:30.
After work, I headed to the gym. I didn’t really go with any particular workout in mind — I just knew that I couldn’t run because I’m not suppose to run two days in a row. So, I ended up just walking on the treadmill and reading a magazine.
- Duration: 30 minutes
- Distance: 1.75 mile
I left my own Operation Beautiful note in a gym locker.
This is one of my workout mantras. 🙂
Dinner was easy… it was already 9:15, I needed something fast! I had Anne’s organic macaroni and cheese and some broc.
I was a little heavy handed with that pasta pour, me thinks! I couldn’t finish all the pasta so the doggies got a nice little snack. 🙂
Kristien at Inspired By Dooce wrote, "I don’t have my camera at work with me today, but at about 9:30 I put a note on one of the bathroom mirrors that said "your imperfections are what make you beautiful". I just went to check on it and it is still there 🙂 I’m glad the cleaning crew didn’t take it off."
Baylee wrote that, "This morning, I attached this note to the mirror before running out on the track. The entire time I was
running, I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face! Apparently my note got to me – and hopefully it got to others too!"
Julie wrote, "I work for a Christian organization and used the sign to remind the lovely ladies I work with how beautiful they are, especially in God’s eyes!"
Alison from Mama’s Weeds posted not 1 but 2 Operation Beautiful notes today. She wrote, "On my way out the door to the library today with my two young daughters, I grabbed a pad of post-its, a sharpie and my camera! I posted two Operational Beautiful notes. The first one went on the mirror of children’s restroom, up high for all the mama’s to see!"
Alice continues, "For the second, I scanned the stacks in the Health section and picked one of my old favorites, Fit From Within. I picked what I thought was an appropriate chapter and left a note for someone to find when they check out the book. My 5 year old daughter saw me writing the note for the book and asked what it said. I told her "It says, You are Beautiful". She said, "Who is beautiful?" I said "You are!""
Holly at Domestic Dork did an electronic Operation Beautiful note:
Marie said: "I’m a student at Northeastern Univ in Boston and we’re in the midst of final exams for summer courses. I decided to take a break from the computer lab and post a note in the bathroom, I hope it brings a smile to someone’s face!"
Kathryn posted a bunch around her own home and plans to do more in public places later. Love this one:
Meghan from Help Meghan Run wrote, "I didn’t get a pic of my note today, but it said, "You are beautiful and perfect just the way you are," and I posted it publicly. I was so happy walking away thinking of the possibility that I will probably brighten at least one person’s day. Way to go!"
Danielle from Danielle Runs posted this one:
From Angela at Oh She Glows:
Carrie wrote me to say, "I just left a note saying "You are beautiful just the way you are!" on the women’s room mirror in my small town’s city hall building. For some reason, I was suuuuper nervous to do it, but I feel great now! Just after I left the restroom, though, a male janitor went in to clean the bathroom … I really hope he left the note up. *Maybe he took the message to heart, too!*" Carrie — you are totally right! Men need love too! 🙂
Jenna from Eat, Live, Run:

Lynn from The Actor’s Diet left this one on a yoga mat:

Valerie posted these notes in her bathroom (love it!):

Diana at Soup and Chocolate posted this public note:
Susan said, "My message is very personal. I’ve spent my whole life feeling like I’m not good at anything. So this little reminder is essential in my day. I know I have talents in there somewhere, beautiful talents!!" Read about her Operation Beautiful experience at Susan’s blog!
Leah at The Nutitionista wrote this lovely note:
OBVIOUSLY, Operation Beautiful has EXPLODED (I had no idea it would get this big!). I love it! Keep sending in your notes to firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the volume of notes I’m getting, plus Summit stuff and regular blog emails, I cannot respond to your emails, but trust me you will see them on the blog! 🙂
