Making Me Smile on Mondays – #1

Good Morning! It’s Monday! Don’t you wish you could just extend the weekend a little bit longer? But no, it’s back to real life again…back to the grind, back to work, back to that to-do list! To make my Monday a little bit sunnier, I’m focusing on just a few of the amazing things that happened this weekend and things I’m really thankful for, things that are making my Monday great!

1. My Group Power Class.


I love teaching this class, I love being with those people in the group, I love being able to help make people’s workout a little bit more enjoyable for them. Group fitness classes are such a fabulous way to motivate people (including me!) thru exercise, and it makes me so happy to be able to be a piece of someone’s healthy lifestyle puzzle. Plus, Group Power is just so stinking awesome!

2. Young Living’s Lemon Essential Oil.


I accidentally stepped in gum in a parking lot and tracked it into the car…I didn’t even know about the gum until the next morning, and by then the gum was really ground into the carpet of the driver’s side floor with strings stretched out over the whole area. Complete yuck. I was SO BUMMED! How on earth would I get that out of the carpet?? I decided to give my new Lemon Essential Oil a try on the gum first, to see if it really cleaned as good as it promised. I put a few drops right onto the gum, waited a sec, and Expecto Patronum! That little bottle of magic juice zapped that nasty gum right out of the carpet in 3 minutes tops. No sticky residue, no nothing left on the carpet-the Lemon Essential oil took it 100% out!

3. My morning cup o’ Joe. Need I say more?? Mmmm and with this Caramel Macchiato Coffee Creamer…So, so Good.


4. While You Were Sleeping

Last night was kinda a stormy one, and I just felt like staying in and watching a happy movie…Nate knows this one is on my top 5 fave movie list, and he said it would be ok with him to watch it together..he’s so awesome! :) I never get sick of watching this one…I mean that paper boy kid? Awesome every time! We made pancakes for dinner, and curled up on the couch to watch together…life’s simple pleasures!

5. Vega Sport Electrolyte Hydrator Packet, 30 Count, Berry

I love this stuff! I ran 5 miles on Sunday morning, and by far, it was the most miserable summer run I’ve had so far…I’ve been feeling ok on my runs so far this summer, but yesterday, I came home beet red in the face, feeling sick to my stomach, and just drenched in sweat. It was pretty darn gross. I came home, mixed one of these in a cold bottle of water, and it definitely helped rehydrate me a lot better than just plain water. I’m not a fan of Gatorade and most sports drinks because of the sketchy ingredients, but this hydrator is packed with good, quality ingredients, nothing artificial, and sweetened with stevia. I love the Lemon-Lime Flavor!


Thinking about these simple pleasures in life definitely makes my Monday feel just a little bit more happy…and I’m all about living on the sunny side of life!


What makes you smile this Monday?
