Hope everyone had a great day! I started off my day with a GM:


Just the usual stuff: kale, banana, 1% milk, vanilla yogurt and flaxseeds.

Lunch was a salad with some leftover veggies:

  • mixed greens
  • arugula
  • warmed braised fennel
  • warmed steamed rapini
  • red bell pepper
  • spanish onion
  • 1/2 diced chicken breast
  • balsamic vinegar, 1/2 tsp olive oil, salt and pepper

Fennel and Rapini salad

This was sooo good! Every bite was amazing. I do wish I had chopped up some mushrooms into it though. That would have made it perfect.

I wasn’t very hungry this evening so I just ended up having a serving of Knorr Yellow Soup with 1/2 a high protein, high fibre pita:

Not pictured:

  • 1 large coffee with milk (only had 1/2 of it, wasn’t very good)
  • 1 medium coffee with milk (only had 1/2 of it)
  • a Starbucks tall nonfat unsweetened earl grey latte (tasty!)
  • 1 clementine

So today I went to a local mall and did a little shopping! If there is one thing to know about me, it is that I love buying beauty products–the whole experience–trying, smelling, touching, etc. I just love trying different scents and textures–whether it be a perfume, a body lotion or a shower gel. Apart from my make up and skin care, I rarely buy a product twice and always try to switch up my lotions and potions. Today I bought something old and something new:

Caudalie face cleanser

This is my go to face cleanser. I have a lot of issues with dryness, sensitive skin and rosacea and this manages to clean my face without irritation. I really enjoy a lot of their products and up until recently, used their Premiere Vendanges as my face moisturizer.

This was new:

Shower Gel

This just has a warm, scrumptious scent that makes me happy. I took my time smelling all the lovely holiday Philosophy shower gels but this one still appealed to me most. My only concern however, is that my husband may try to take a bite out of me! LOL

I was also in need of some long sleeve T’s so I bought some from Old Navy. 2 for $18 CAN is a steal!

Old Navy long sleeve T's

I had an old black long sleeve T but it was way worn out from washing. While many years ago I might have refused to buy myself clothes in a “non ideal” size and keep wearing the same old stuff as a sort of “punishment”, I eventually tired of the “when I’m thin” mentality and realized that it’s now that counts. I deserve to be treated well–by others and myself. So if I need or want something, I buy it.  I also don’t need to be thin to be happy or love myself. I am happy and love myself regardless of what size I am! 🙂

Have you ever gotten caught up with the  “when I’m thin….” mentality?
