I started my morning with a quick and simple breakfast: an egg and cheese sandwich on a toasted whole wheat Sandwich Thin with a plum and a glass of iced coffee with vanilla soy milk on the side.
For the egg, I nuked a Good Food Made Simple egg patty in the microwave. They’re so easy to make”” just toss on a plate and microwave for 90 seconds. Done.
After breakfast, I hit the gym for a Step & Core class. The first half of class was devoted to heart-pumping step aerobics (I know, I’m so cool), so the instructor really kicked our butts since we only had about 30 minutes. I was dripping sweat by the end. The second half of class was all core work”” crunches and lots of Pilates-type moves. My abs definitely got a good workout.
After class, while I was putting away my equipment, a woman came up to me and told me that I had really nice legs. Her step was set up right behind mine in class, so she noticed them while I was bouncing around in front of her. Her comment was really sweet, but it totally caught me off guard.
In the past, I’ve blogged about how I don’t love the way my legs look, but I still appreciate their awesomeness with regard to their strength, endurance, and ability to run long distances. Her comment actually made me think differently about the appearance of my legs. Maybe they aren’t as burley-looking as I thought? Maybe they do look toned and strong? Maybe I shouldn’t be so hard on myself and just get over my hang-up about my legs? I definitely looked at them differently as I was leaving the gym.
Click to Help Stonyfield Support Breast Canc”‹er
I just wanted to share this great campaign that Stonyfield just launched to support the nonprofit Breastcancer.org. Earlier this year, Breastcancer.org launched its Organic Living section, which is part of the organization’s global Think Pink, Live Green initiative. The goal of Organic Living is to help people understand how the outside environment affects breast health through the chemicals in food, beverages, medications, and other products they use. Stonyfield sponsored the development of this new section, which provides invaluable information and advice on adopting an organic lifestyle, including steps you can take today to lower your breast cancer risk tomorrow.
You can help by going to www.click4breastcancer.org where you can read, listen to, and watch the stories of those affected by breast cancer. Additionally, if you “like” and share these stories with others through your blog, Facebook, Twitter, and email, each action generates a “click” and every time you perform one, Stonyfield donates $.10 to Breastcancer.org. It’s that easy. You don’t have to submit any personal information, make a donation, or anything like that. Just click for a great cause!!
