I’m glad I decided to FOCUS on eating more veggies and fruits and a greater variety of foods in general (read: not a million PB sammies and granola bars) because it’s making me feel SO much more energetic!
I had a lovely lunch:
I found this great new Wolfgang Puck soup at my grocery store and was so excited because it’s not super calorie dense (like the other Puck soups are). So instead of just eating 1 cup, I ate the WHOLE CAN! Haha – I love volumious foods, what can I say!
Plus, a side salad and a mini-whole wheat pita with some spicy Sabra hummus:
And apricots for dessert! My fav:
The Operation Beautiful Notes Keep Coming!
Next time you are in a public place, write a Operation Beautiful note and stick it in the bathroom, by a water fountain, or in the elevator… and take a picture of it! E-mail me your story at firstname.lastname@example.org! OR — write YOURSELF a note! 🙂
Shanna from Weight and See left this note on her co-worker’s desk this morning! How lovely:
From Danielle at Around the World in 300 Days:
A story from Colleen: "I couldn’t get a picture, but I put a post-it on the mirror here at work. It says “Believe in yourself – you are beautiful inside and out!” Our custodian was in the restroom earlier and I saw that she carefully removed it, cleaned the mirror and then stuck it back up there! I work in a building with about 400 other people (which also makes it tricky to sneak in the restroom to put it up!), but I think I’ll put a new one up every few days to keep things interesting!"
Polly from Yoga is Yummy wrote me to say: "Thank you so much for doing this. As a momma of a soon to be teenager, the most precious gift I can give her for her birthday is to remind her of how beautiful she is on the INSIDE. That inner beauty radiates in all of life and is most beautiful, always."
Ari wrote, "I love your idea for operation beautiful so I decided to put two notes up at my gym this morning. I put one on two separate mirrors (I don’t have a camera or else I would have sent you a picture) then I went to do my ellipticalling. I came back 45 minutes later and they were both gone! it just shocked me that whoever took them down like, must not want people to feel good about themselves." Ari — I bet that someone read it and took it home with them to keep! I would keep a Operation Beautiful note if I found it! Keep posting them! 🙂
