It was tough getting out of bed this morning. The weather was cool and crisp outside, but my bed was nice and warm– and oh, so comfy!
Murphy felt the same way about waking up this morning.
But, it was Mal’s first day back at school, so we forced ourselves out of bed and got moving.
I made my hubby breakfast while he got ready for school. We chatted and ate together while watching Murphy play in the living room. He had a ton of energy then!
In the mix:
- 1 cup dry oats
- 1/2 cup non-fat milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 banana
- Nature’s Path Agave Granola
- Almond butter
We also had iced coffee with chocolate soy milk. Delish!

Kelly Clarkson Rocks My World!
Kelly Clarkson makes great music, but I never really thought of her as a role model… until I read her interview in Self’s September issue. This girl has got her head screwed on right! I was pretty blown away about what she had to say about her body, her life, and her happiness. I love her attitude, especially in regard to her weight and body image!
Here are a few things that really impressed and inspired me:
- About what she eats: “Whatever I’m craving, I go for it. As long as you’re not eating the whole damn cake, have a piece! When you get so strict [about your diet], that’s when you screw up.“
- About her happy weight: “My happy weight changes. Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more. When people talk about my weight, I’m like ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!’“
- About self-confidence: “Self-confidence comes from not focusing on yourself. When you’re focused on your nose being too big, your eyes being too deep-set or your hair being too red, that’s when you start freaking out and believing the things other people say. Anyway, who care what they say about you? They’ll not even remember you in five minutes.“
