Productivity Feels Good

Standard

Try and tell me this doesn’t bring a smile to your face!

I watched a bit of my favorite yellow sponge this weekend and just had to share. He is so happy, playful, hilarrrrrious, and squeaks when he walks. I know my sisters don’t understand it, but this little guy gets me laughing each time! Exhibit A.

Anywho, onto the other cool stuff. Sunday and Monday were very productive days, and there’s nothing quite as satisfying as going to bed knowing you won for the day. I had a dentist appointment this morning; ugh, I can’t tell you how much I hate the dentist. I’ve had a billion cavities over the years, so needless to say, I went in today prepared to pay another $500 or whatever it is to get my teeth looking like new. I’m happy to report: NO CAVITIES!!! I also learned that the Crest SpinBrush Pro is a crock full of bologna. Apparently it’s not very effective because it only twists in one direction and not meant for those with the dexterity to maneuver a regular toothbrush. Goodbye, SpinBrush. Sorry Mom.

Another thing that made me happy today was biking to and from work! I finally set out some back-road routes so that I don’t have to take big roads, which makes getting the commute so much easier. Riding in traffic at 5:15pm is not ideal, but it isn’t as stressful as I thought it would be, especially because I work 2 miles from my apartment. Lucky me 🙂

This post is lacking pix – this is Boston leaving the Children’s Museum at night. That’s the Constellation something-or-other on the left, very famous.

After work, I decided to take advantage of the nice weather we have left up here in Bipolar Boston and go for a run outside. Boy, is it WAY more fun to run outside then inside! So many things to look at, surroundings to keep you on your toes (literally), and obstacles to make it interesting. I’m sure lots of people do this, but does anyone else look at their reflection in store windows as they run past?? I try to only do it when no one is around and I make it real stealth; do you think anyone actually thinks I’m window shopping while getting my sweat on? I just gotta check my stride, people! I noticed how much I did it today, especially running in a city – many, many windows are passed.

Speaking of running in the city, I see some of the strangest things. Today, the highlight was an older, rounder man sitting on a park bench reading the paper. May not sound so strange, but he was wearing a blonde wig, about shoulder length, with bangs. It was a strange combination – mustache, sunglasses, khakis, and….a wig. I giggled and congratulated myself on a great day to run outside.

I was able to squeeze in a quick filling dinner tonight before work 2.0 kicked in around 8 (to which I rode my bike as well, just sayin’). I loooove chicken sausage – they’re so easy to pair with anything, add some much needed protein to my diet, and come in really delish flaves. Not to mention that they are about 150 calories. In my grocery bag they went. To incorporate them into my meal tonight, I fried up some spinach and feta chicken sausages, red pepper, and cauliflower with only a little bit of olive oil. The flavor of the sausages really mixed well with the veggies, and I didn’t need a sauce! I topped a hefty serving of arugula with the sausage/veg mix and finished the meal off with some dried mangoes. So much in this dinner that I love!

So fresh and so clean, clean – literally

Excited for tomorrow – The roomies and I are having our last meal together! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since we moved in….so much has happened for all 3 of us. I’m so lucky to have had such AWESOME roommates, and we’ll definitely miss you here, Julia! We’re growing up so quick 🙂

I'm starting a blog to make being happy my job. I have always prided myself in having a positive outlook on life and making the best of bad situations. Recently, a trying and terribly sad event has struck me and my family and it's been a lot harder than I thought to get back to my normal self. Writing down 5 things every night that made me happy, grateful, or just simply something awesome that I thought of or found has brought to my attention that no matter how sucky life may seem, there are always things to be happy about. Which is why I wanted to share with others how great life can be. I'm no inspirational speaker (nor is my life particularly super interesting) but I'm going to try my best to be awesome for you guys :) I hope you enjoy! Make it a happy one!
