Operation Beautiful #2

12 Aug

It is crazy to me how much more insane things to cover in the news. People were bullied so they get plastic surgery at age 14. People are killing themselves at an age where they should be playing dodgeball. Even girls trying to get diet pills before they are 18. I  just don’t get it. What has changed with this world? Well I have decided that I am going to help end it.

Last week I did a post about Operation Beautiful and let me tell you I have done nothing but walk around with ideas of what I can do during the week! I will see something that brings an idea about and I can’t help but think – hey?!

I am so excited to do these upcoming things and I encourage you to check back and even tell me about things you have done so I can post them. Please make sure you send them on to Caitlyn over at OperationBeautiful@gmail.com and she will put them on her website for ALL to see!!!  Let’s get this thing started!!!

Operation Beautiful

5 Aug

Operation Beautiful is something that I stumbled across and I honestly can’t remember how – but it doesn’t even matter because I found it.  This was one of the best things I could have ever found!

Caitlin Boyle is the founder of this mission and her website Operation Beautiful her mission is stated as:

The goal of the Operation Beautiful website is to end negative self-talk or “Fat Talk.”  If this little blog only does one productive thing, I hope it helps readers realize how truly toxic negative self-talk is  — it hurts you emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

She goes on to say:

I began Operation Beautiful by leaving positive messages on the mirrors of public restrooms — at work, at the gym, at the grocery store.  I scribble down whatever comes to mind — “You are beautiful!” or “You are amazing just the way you are!”  My personal goal is to leave as many Operation Beautiful notes as I can. Maybe some people read them and just smile, but I bet some people are truly touched by the effort of a random stranger.

Then she explains how you can help as well:

Operation Beautiful is simple: all you need is a pen and a piece of paper.  If you want to join the mission, send me an e-mail at OperationBeautiful@gmail.com with a photograph of your Operation Beautiful note or a description of your experience, and I’ll post it on the Operation Beautiful site for thousands of others to read and enjoy!

The neatest thing – Caitlin responds to the emails herself! I was so excited to exchange a couple of ideas with her and know it was actually her!

I was so intrigued by the website that I went and bought her book Operation Beautiful: Transforming the Way You See Yourself One Post-It Note at a Time

I can’t say much more than I love the idea behind this and the book that goes with it!

This YouTube clip is posted on her website (that is where I am copying it from) and I loved it…check it out!

Caitlin also blogs over at http://www.healthytippingpoint.com and again – it is another great website!

I am so passionate about the Operation Beautiful mission to end negative “Fat Talk” – that I am going to dedicate my Sundays to Operation Beautiful. Please come back and check it out and email Caitlin with your photos as you join in!

My very first post-it:

The Weekly Chase – Week #4

30 Jul

So this last week was not so stellar – my mojo up and got gone. I think this weather that is gloomy and rainy really affects me more than I know and I have to figure out a better way to combat this. I mean that sincerely!

#1 – 100 Mile Challenge – um yeah – I have decided to drop this as my running is just not happening in this rainy weather right now and when I do get a nice day we have other this we have to get done. I hate being a quitter – but I quit this one!

#2 – Plank-A-Day – my goal was 3 minutes and I came up a little shy (by 30 seconds) but I am not giving up that easy on this one!

#3 – Facebook C Diet – Yeah my diet sucks if I didn’t already know this – but I am more conscious! I must also say that I have now discovered a love for Chobani and it includes eating it up to 3 times a day – I seriously love this stuff with some granola…heaven!

#4 – Clean out my craft closet – This didn’t happen – plain and simple.

#5 – Team Beach Body – I met with my awesome upline Carin and we seem to have the same style so I am looking forward to building this up!

#6 – Operation Beautiful – I did my first post-it and it was very exciting!

Okay – so really not that fantastic – but I think I just need some different things to go for to clear my head – so here goes nothing~

#1 – Operation Beautiful – I am going to make this one a higher priority – I need to feel good by doing good – since this weather is just plain sucky.

#2 – Plank-A-Day – I WILL get 3 minutes – it will not escape me this week!

#3 – Read the Girls A Bed Time Story Every Night – school is starting for my oldest soon and I just feel it is important. My dad and mom used to read to us and I really think that instilled a love of reading to this day.

#4 – Team Beach Body – Get my goals set this week and get a game plan!

#5 – Research Vitamins – I had asked our dear friend Kelly over at GNC about vitamins and such…I need to help myself some by getting on a routine of vitmains….I need to really research this and get it started. I want to take a look at some other companies as well…

SO there is it…A little different start for my goals to give my mind a rest from being anxious over running. 

Questions – What vitamins/supplements do you take and why?
