The Little Things

Okay, so if you are anything like me, you get excited over little, ridiculous things. I probably get more pumped up about a coupon for a free coffee than I would for a random day off work; weird, I know. Those little, happy surprises add up to make me one happy camper when I look back on them. Here’s a couple recent things that have happened to me to make my life just a little bit better:

  • Getting my confirmation letter to see The Ellen Show next month! I’ll be there on April 10 and the taping will air on April 11 if any of you care to watch Smile with tongue out

  • Making a really damn good bowl of oatmeal this morning. Usually I make it way too thick or way too runny, but today it was perfect. It put this weird, goofy smile on my face for basically no reason.
  • Two new personal training clients that I actually really like as people and enjoy spending time with. I like all my clients, I really do. For some reason I’m always surprised that I get such normal, nice people! I’m very blessed.
  • Being excited to wake up in the morning and do yoga. Let’s be honest here. I have never looked forward to morning workouts. Afternoon ones, yes (sometimes). I actually want to get out of bed and do yoga each morning, which makes me super happy.

  • This one is kinda odd, but it makes me happy that The Bachelor and Biggest Loser are done for the season, since I now have an additional 4 free hours each week. I love those shows and miss the entertainment, but I can really use the extra time.
  • In conjunction with the last one, crying my eyes out because I am so happy for the Biggest Loser contestants! They looked AMAZING last night. I got a good cry in while drinking wine and eating pie. Oxymoron? Yeah, oh well.
  • A new discovery of coconut mocha k-cups for my Keurig. I would like this every day of my life please and thank you.

  • FINDING MY IPOD! I totally thought I lost it, but I found it rolled up in one of my yoga mats in my trunk yesterday. Random. You would get a good chuckle if you peeked in my trunk. Just filled with a bunch of random fitness stuff. I could open a boot camp out of my car.
  • My shoulder finally starting to feel better. I had a pinched nerve that was causing me pain anytime I raised it above elbow-level. Finally I can put it overhead with minimal pain. Fingers crossed that doesn’t happen again next time I get blood drawn.
  • Having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with an apple and kettle chips for dinner last night. I felt like I was 5 again and I loved every second of it. Mine definitely didn’t look this good though.

  • Clearing up my blog reader and my e-mail. A big thumbs up to that.

And the biggest thing of all that is making me smile today? I became a BeachBody coach yesterday! That’s one of my big announcements I was talking about the other day (the second one will be coming soon!). I will be posting a lot more about it over the upcoming weeks, but you can learn a little bit more at their website if you’re interested. With that being said, if any of you are interested in buying their products (Insanity, P90X, TurboFire, Shakeology, etc……) you should probably just go ahead and buy that through me, kay thanks. More to come on that, but I am SUPER excited about it. One more step towards working from home and owning my own successful personal training business Smile


I’ve got a pretty busy day today:

  • Waking up early to do yoga from 6am-7am.
  • Nannying from 8am-330pm.
  • Working at the gym 4-9pm.
  • Rushing home to watch the PLL season finale; AHHHHH. I’ll have to watch it late so do not dare tell me who is in that damn red coat. It’s giving me a headache just thinking about it.


What was the best thing that happened to you yesterday?

    I have to watch the finale late too and I’m honestly thinking about just turning my phone off so I don’t read any texts or accidentally end up on Facebook or Twitter. I’d get super excite about a free cup of coffee too – love little things like that!

  2. Mmm love kettle chips. I just had some at Panera last night. Those things are addicting.

  3. sounds like some great things happening for you!

    Little things are the best when it comes to finding happiness in everyday life :) nothing beats a pbj sandwich with chips and an apple for any meal in my mind! My little thing from yesterday was letting my girls stay up late to finish ramona and beezus together…best night we’ve had in awhile :)

  5. Congrats on the Beachbody coach job!! I love their videos!

  6. Nicole @Fruit'N'Fitness says:

    Your dinner sounds amazing! That coconut mocha sounds amazing! The new clients and beach body job sounds fantastic, defiantly something to be excited about!

  7. Aw I love this post! I’m a big fan of little kid dinners, so that sounds awesome to me.

    Yesterday…the best thing was an email from Connor suggesting that we take a mini vacation soon — it put me in an instant good mood!

    The sandwich in the pic looks so good :) And the kids I babysit for have a keurig machine and they have that donut coffee but I can never justify drinking coffee at 10:30pm haha I wish they’d call me to babysit one morning ;)
