Being good to yourself

I read something once and it stuck with me and although I find myself often not following it... I should. We all should because it is soooo true...

The world has created enough enemies for you. Never be an enemy to yourself.

So today I am recommitting to being kind to myself. Physically kind, Emotionally kind. I am going to become my own best friend because frankly if I don't love and nurture me then how can I expect others too.

This also includes having people in my life that are honest, loyal, positive and committed to leading a healthy good life.

I ate this for breakfast this morning...

Shelly's Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Salad

2 ounces Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used Caramel)
1 Tablespoon NSA Apple Butter
1 Pear, chopped
1 Apple, chopped
1/4 cup of Walnuts (or Pecans or combo) and Dried Cranberries (or Raisins or combo)
dash Cinnamon

Mix yogurt, syrup, apple butter together. Peel and chop fruit in yogurt it prevents the fruit from oxidizing. Add nuts and berries. Toss to coat. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.

Highlights of the day:

* Started my morning with a really nice text message.

* The house is starting to look Christmasy and it's getting me in the spirit. Finally because I just wasn't feeling it this year but I'm coming around. I'm staying local I think. What's everyone doing for the holidays?

* Making a yummy dinner tonight... watch for the food porn manana.

Oh wow, this looks SO good, and is definitely going in my recipe folder for when I hit the raw fruits and veggie stage of my diet. (I have a few more weeks!) It reminds me of my gramma's Waldorf Salad, so I'm eager to try it out.

Thanks for all of your awesome inspiration - I wish I lived on the west coast, but will be in LA in March and hope to catch an OH event!

Shrinking hugs!
