Good afternoon! I wanted to share this lovely Operation Beautiful story with you:
Paige wrote, "I have an Operation Beautiful experience that not only changed my day, but changed my outlook. I’d been having such a blah weekend and Monday, and finally decided to post an Operation Beautiful note. I posted it at work, in the bathroom, where I knew a lot of women (or at least one!) would see it. Then I realized, even if no one saw it, I saw it, and I believed it. It totally changed my mood. I think you’re completely right in Operation Beautiful being just as helpful to the person posting a note as the person who finds it. Hopefully someone else saw it too, and it worked on them as well, but if it didn’t, at least it helped me, and in turn made me nicer to others! I think Operation Beautiful is SO powerful and moving."
Go to Operation Beautiful to see the rest of today’s notes!
Today was been so-far-so-good! Chugging along at work and still riding high from my solo dance party this morning. 🙂
Lunch was FABULOUS!
Hands down, kidney beans are my favorite type of bean. I love the taste and how firm the skin is compared to other beans. Yum!
With cous cous and asparagus, too!

If you could ask a registered dietician any question, what would it be?
