Lately life’s been stressful. It hasn’t exactly been, as they say, a bowl of cherries. One thing I am blessed to have, however, is optimism. I have always been the type of person who sees life’s events in the best possible light. Today I don’t even need that much optimism, though. I have plenty of things to make me smile.
Reason #1: I finished 5 straight days of Adventure Boot Camp for Women!
I’m pretty sure that I haven’t completed five intense workouts in a row since my college athletics days. I’m extremely sore, but in the best possible way. I feel strong. I’m invigorated and ready to complete the remaining two weeks.
Reason #2: The sun is shining today.
Even though I thought the weather forecast was calling for snow, it was bright and sunny today.
It was a little chilly, but not too cold to enjoy some fresh air.
Reason #3: Meghan seems to be feeling better.
I think the extra vitamin C must be working, because Meghan’s cold is getting better instead of worse. In addition to the Vitamin C Fruit Smoothie, I offered her some broccoli bites and broiled grapefruit yesterday. She didn’t like the grapefruit at all, but I tried. 🙂
She’s been happy and energetic today, despite her runny nose and cough.
Reason #4: My husband is amazing.
Not only is he a great husband who is my best friend and biggest supporter, he is an awesome dad.
Reason #5: I have a full stash of (healthy!) Double Chocolate Coconut Cookies heading into the weekend.
I would love to be able to share this recipe with you, but you’ll have to wait. Trust me, it is worth the wait, as these cookies are the kind you’d write home about.
What are you smiling about today?
