Exciting news: this week will be a short week for me! As I am under a LOT of stress lately, I decided to ask my boss for some unpaid time off (I don’t have any vacation time accrued). As long as I get my work done, I can take off Thursday, Friday, and Monday — how incredible is that? Trust me, I need the break!
On that happy note, I woke up with a wonderful breakfast:
I made whole wheat waffles and topped them with blueberries, flax, coconut, and vanilla Oikos Greek Yogurt.
This breakfast was MIND BLOWING. So delicious!
I also did some strength moves:
- 30 push-ups
- 50 bicycle crunches
- 10 10-second wall squats
I’m proud to report that my knees do not hurt at all today! I really thought Sunday’s race would’ve put me over the edge, but I feel fine. My quad muscles are a little sore — that’s it! Woooo hoooo.
Operation Beautiful and Call for Interviews!
Check out the Monday notes, including the conclusion of "Where in the USA is Monica?". Monica from Run, Eat, Repeat posted more than 200 notes as she traveled across the country! How cool is that?
If you have participated in Operation Beautiful and it has had a profound impact on your outlook, I would love to hear from you. Operation Beautiful is beginning to spread farther than I could’ve ever imagined, and I need to speak to a few women with special experiences. If you have a great Operation Beautiful story to tell, please e-mail me at email@example.com! Thank you in advance!
yay for time off!! you really deserve it.
