TIP OF THE DAY.....We've all heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There is some truth to this. Instead of grabbing a pop tart, sugar filled cereal, donut, or even a cereal bar for breakfast, try this....Quaker High Fiber Instant Oatmeal available in Maple and Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Swirl. The nutrition information is this.....Total fat 2g, carbohydrates 34g, fiber 10g, and protein 4g. When made with skim milk and by adding a small handful of blueberries, the fiber content increases by 4g and the protein by 5g. That's a great start to your day. I've already talked about the benefits of protein and we all know that fiber is essential for our bodies to function properly also. Both protein and fiber fill you up and give you energy. So by choosing this for your breakfast, you are giving your body what it needs to keep you going, in more ways than one!

…..on my toes! Well not really but sort of. I just polished my toenails for the first time in a month and the color my boys picked out for me is OPI’s MELON OF TROY! Had ya there for a minute, didn’t I? I used to polish my toenails every Saturday night even after I had the boys, but lately I’ve been neglecting that part of my body as I’ve been focusing on other areas. But I have to tell you that it felt so good! And not just because I was pampering myself. If anyone is reading this that would call yourself ummmm….well, let’s just say “voluptuous” in size, you know how difficult it can be to polish your own toenails. You know that belly just gets in the way sometimes! Yeah I’ve had to take a break in the middle of polishing a few times before, but not tonight! Losing 23 lbs has been great for my body in so many ways! I was actually comfortable tonight bending over to do my toenails! It’s the little things that make me smile! Now if I could just find a way to get comfortable bending over to pick up all these toys off the floor a thousand times a day, that would be awesome!!!!!
