Gosh you guys! Thanks for the wonderful comments you all leave on my posts. It really means a lot that people read and maybe even care about my ramblings. ;) Blogger says I have 17 followers now, which is amazing because when I started this I didn't really think about people actually following. Sooo...Thank you!!!
I FINALLY made overnight oats this week. Yay! So good and simple. I used 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup yogurt, and 1/2 cup milk with some flax, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
So I was reading this at work yesterday:
It made me a little angry actually. Ok, I know US Weekly is not exactly a tome of accurate, truthful information and it’s known for being sensational just to sell copies. And I also don’t want to discredit someone because I know everyone is different. But, I’m just not sure how much I believe Bethenny Frankel’s story or her “new” outlook. In the interview she talks about her insecurities with her appearance and her many attempts to lose weight. She doesn’t go so far as saying she had an eating disorder, but its certainly sounds like it. Then she says that before a trip to Italy she completely changed her views. And now she’s all about balance and health. I guess that could happen, of course, and I’m sure she did go through changes, but then on the side of the article there’s a list of all her products -SkinnyGirl Daily cleanse and supplements, a book called Naturally Thin, a yoga DVD, and a body shaper!
Now I don’t really know much about Bethenny because I never watched Real Housewives or her other shows and I don’t want to discredit someone’s experiences, but those products do not sound helpful for people who struggle with body image! Aside from whether Bethenny had an eating disorder or not, I can’t imagine that something called SkinnyGirl is all that healthy to promote.
Anyway, I’m probably overreacting and I’m sorry to all the Bethenny Frankel fans out there. I’m not trying to be rude, I just get annoyed when I people promote “healthy” products that can easily feed into disordered thinking.
Well, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. It’s raining here today, but tomorrow is supposed to be nice. I can’t wait to start a fresh new week - I need it after this one!
