I am back on the road for another Operation Beautiful presentation. This time, Iâ€™m going to New Haven, Connecticut (when, oh when am I going to book an engagement in the Bahamas?). If youâ€™re in the area and want to come tomorrow, the details are here â€“ itâ€™s open to the public!
The Eat-In (for the rest of) February Challenge has already saved me $10 or so! I brought a packed lunch instead of opting to grab something on-the-go at the airport.
Iâ€™m currently reading: Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein (side note: as an author, I just want to say this book has an INCREDIBLE title, and I am very jealous). The book was gifted to me by the publisher and so far, itâ€™s really great and relatable. Lately, Iâ€™ve been reading a lot of books like this, including Pornland by Gail Dines (also a publisher gift) and So Sexy So Soon by Jean Kilbourne (bought myself) â€“ hereâ€™s my review of S4. The only trouble with reading these books about girl culture is it makes me feel like an alarmist â€“ but maybe thatâ€™s a good thing in our society. Itâ€™s good research for Operation Beautiful, though!
I think my interest in girl culture pretty much guarantees that the Husband and I will have four boys and no girls. 😉
Anyway â€“ letâ€™s talk about lunch. I made leftovers of Sundayâ€™s lunch and all I had to do was pop the rice, chickpea, balsamic, tomato, and spinach mix into my carry-on! So easy.
And a yummy espresso scone.
I almostâ€¦ ALMOSTâ€¦ got a cup of Starbucks to go with my scone, but I refused in the sake of saving dough.
A Very Operation Beautiful Valentineâ€™s Day!
The Operation Beautiful Eye Chart is a hit â€“ Iâ€™ve posted some great pictures on the Healthy Tipping Point Facebook page. If you want to print out the eye chart, itâ€™s right here!
Time to board. See ya in New Haven!
Are you a Leftover King or Queen? Whatâ€™s your favorite leftover dish? I think anything with a sauce always tastes better the next day!
