Today I saw a great video and I want to share it with you. You may have seen it already. The video has gone viral since it was posted. Today was the first time I saw it. Check out this video here: Always #LikeAGirl. I saw this commercial on my friend's Facebook page and I just loved it. It made me feel proud to be a girl. This was my favorite line from the video. I love how the girl says it so strongly too.
"I mean, yes! I kick like a girl, and I swim like a girl, and I walk like a girl, and I wake up in the morning like a girl...Because I am a girl. And that is not something that I should be ashamed of, so I'm going to do it anyway."
I wish we all, girls and boys alike, could feel proud of who we are and feel like we don't have to be ashamed of the quirks or mannerism that make us who we are. To accept one's self is the biggest gift we can give ourselves. With that positive thought, on to how my day went.
Here's what I ate today:
Breakfast: Blueberry pancakes made with fresh blueberries topped with a little butter and maple syrup. Delicious start to the day.
Lunch: I had a little taco meat leftover that I wanted to use up and since my taco dip yesterday was so tasty, I decided to repeat the same thing for lunch. Today I added a side of red grapes.
Dinner: We had a classic summer sandwich of BLT's. I love these sandwiches. We don't have them often but boy, are they amazing. We'll have to make them again later in the summer when we have our own tomatoes from our garden. It was a gorgeous evening so we sat outside on the patio for dinner. I think our dog Maverick was hoping I would drop some of my bacon :D
Snack: The perfect end to the day was a scoop of chocolate ice cream!
How I exercised today:
