Hmmm, not appreciated?

I don't know how many of you have discovered Operation Beautiful. I came across it at some point and found it very intruiging. I think it's a great message and the whole concept is just neat.

Yesterday I decided to take a step and posted the following in the communal bathroom in my office building:

This was fairly late in the afternoon (maybe 2:00ish). I'm guessing we have at the very most a dozen women in this building.

So upon arriving to work this morning I ventured into the loo and found that someone had taken it down. Huh??!! It was fairly small, and off to the side of the mirror so it wouldn't be in anyone's way.

Just makes me wonder why someone would take it down. Strange!

Yesterday I had to take my son to the orthodontist for his regular check-up (all is good Auntie I - just the wire was loose, not the tooth) and afterwards we ventured over to the mall to get some school clothes for the kids.

While there we met up with my mother-in-law and decided to have a little drink and a snack. I had an All Bran bar in my purse just because I knew this was going to happen, but instead I succumbed - grrrrr! Actually it wasn't too terrible. I had a bowl of steamed rice, but it was a BIG bowl. I'm guessing maybe two cups of lovely, sticky white rice. Mmmm!

Not nutritious, but it did fill me up and it became dinner. I did have a small fruit smoothie at home later.

My sister-in-law is in town and she came into my room to get me out of bed to go for a walk this morning - heehee. I literally rolled out of bed (as in a front roll off the edge of my bed ... call me Grace). Probably a good thing to go, it was actually nice to get out and walk. I rarely walk anymore and it was nice to take it down a notch.

I still plan to do a run tonight. I crave them now!!

Hey Heidi,
I love the poster...did you just print it from the internet? i'd love to put some of those up at school mwahahaha. Maybe someone took it coz they loved it so much!

I did think maybe someone took it for themselves. It's a nice thought anyway - who knows - heeheee.

I 'sort of' made it. It's a picture I had on my computer from somewhere for years and I just played around with it in picnik. I like the look of those inspirational posters. Feel free to "steal" it from me - hahahaha.
