A great day!


Ahhh... today is such a beautiful morning!  I decided to change up my workout routine and go for a quick 3 mile run outside in the cool, crisp air.  It felt great to be outdoors :)

I got home and made a new concoction I've never tried, "strawberry cream cheese french toast". I  took 2 slices of Ezekiel bread, dipped them in egg beaters and then in a dry mix of rolled oats, ground flax seed and cinnamon.  I grilled the slices of bread on a skillet just like regular french toast.  Then I took 1/2 C. whipped cottage cheese mixed with about 4 strawberries and some splenda and topped the bread with it.  Ummm it was so good!  I drizzled a little sugar free syrup on top too yum yum!

I am off to a computer training for work so I packed some easy and accessible snacks and lunch to keep me energized!  Uh I don't know why this is all underlined, I tried to take it off, oh well:) 

I threw a few sliced almonds, 4 walnut halves, a few pumpkin seeds and about 8 craisins in a baggie for my morning snack
I made another yummy wrap with shredded chicken, lettuce, cucumber, bell peppers, and mustard on my favorite La factorilla tortilla!  I also shoved an apple in my face on the way out the door because I was still hungry!

and last but not least for the afternoon snack attack a ThinkThin bar.  These are really good, not quite as sweet as the bar I had yesterday nor as crunchy but delish!

Nice blog. I like the stance you're taking and trying to help us women think and feel more confident about our bodies. We just get so caught up in it, that we really miss what's important in life. Thanks for the boldness!
