Happy Monday! I needed to disconnect from the computer last night; sorry for the lack of evening posts. Plus, I was working on a fun surprise (see the end of this post!).
I have a sneaking suspicion this week is going to be a GREAT week. Just a hunch.
At least I started out with a great breakfast:
I feel like it’s been weeks since I was blessed with banana oatmeal!
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: brown sugar, pecans, flax, and blackberries
I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t feeling too sore this morning. I thought that 8.0-miler would do my knees in, but the combination of icing, stretching, and acupuncture seems to have saved the day. I’m all set to do another 3.0 miles tonight!
Plus, I did some strength moves this AM:
- 100 bicycle crunches
- 30 push-ups
- 10 10-second wall squats
- 2 30-second side planks
Operation Beautiful and Superchick
A few weeks ago, the Director of Marketing for Inpop Records contacted me and said she had the PERFECT song for Operation Beautiful. The song was "So Beautiful" by the group Superchick. The first time I listened to it, all I could think was "This is the Operation Beautiful rock anthem!"
Trish from Superchick wrote me to say, "I just wanted to say personally I love the heart behind what you’re doing. It feels so much like what our passion has been the 10 years we’ve been writing and touring. Not enough girls look in the mirror and see what’s beautiful and different about themselves. Anyway I’m honored that you’re using our song right now…its a perfect fit!"
Introducing… the latest and greatest Operation Beautiful video! (NOTE: If you click HQ at the bottom right of the video, you can read more of the notes.)
PS – The Husband has had this song stuck in his head for 24 hours. I keep catching him singing it under his breath! 🙂
