-And if life gets too normal, do something crazy.
-Always be nice.
-Life is about your how handle plan B.

Got the blues?? Become a happier person today with these tips...

Become a happier person today!! 

1. WAKE UP EARLY: Go to bed at a decent hour, getting 7 or 8 hours sleep and you'll wake up feeling refreshed and ready for a new day. If you wake up earlier you are more likely to have a happier and more successful day.

2. FIND YOUR SMILE: And find it daily. Do something that makes you happy right away. Tell yourself something wonderful is going to happen and believe it.

3. SEE BEYOND IMPERFECTIONS: Happy people understand that life isn't going to be flawless. They don't judge others! They look for the good in people and even in themselves. 

4. PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK: Happy people are proud of what they do. They recognize when they accomplish something. They finish what they start and they're always try to become better.

5. GET MOVIN': Go to the gym, go for a walk, or do an at-home workout. After you get your body moving – I promise you won't regret it.

6. BECOME YOUR OWN BESTFRIEND: We can be our own worst enemy or own best friend – it's up to YOU to decide. Don't let your mind bring you down and tell you you're not happy. You deserve to find joy. Love the person in the mirror and think positively about yourself.

7. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH HAPPY PEOPLE: Be around people who uplift you and make you feel better. Did you know if you're constantly with negative people – you are more likely to become negative too? Your environment around you can make you who you are.

8. BE GRATEFUL: Don't take a day for granted. Recognize that every day is a blessing.

9. SLOW DOWN: We tend to take on too much. Give yourself a break. Don't feel like you need to do everything in one day. Do what is best for you.

10. MAKE THE BEST OUT OF EVERYTHING: We really do have choices in every situation – choose the highroad – smile, laugh and make the best of it.

❤️ How Fitness is Like Marriage....

How marriage is like fitness.

1. DON'T COMPARE. Your marriage, just like your fitness, is yours alone. Don't compare other couples behavior to your day to day marriage. Same thing with running – you don't know where they're coming from or how hard they've worked to get there.

2. MAKE IT A PRIORITY. Life gets busy. People have jobs, kids, activities…. Just like it's easy to wake up one day and realize you haven't worked out in weeks, it's just as easy to wake up one day and realize you know longer know your spouse. Regular date nights, trips together, and even working out together occasionally can help you keep the connection alive. Darren and I work out together at least once a week!! It's always my favorite workout.

3. MARRY SOMEONE YOU LIKE. That sounds kind of like "DUH", but marrying someone you flat out enjoy being with will go a long way during the hard times. Same thing goes with exercise. If you hate running, you aren't going to do it. You need to find something you LOVE, or at least don't hate! 

4. REALIZE THAT THE BAD DAYS ARE JUST THAT - A BAD DAY. If your marriage is strong and you've worked hard to stay close to your spouse, most bad days (or even phases) can be worked through. And a lot of times they are indicative of nothing important. Workouts are the same way. We've all had bad workouts where we want to give up or where a run seems so hard for the pace we are running. But we don't stop, we try again, and chances are, the next run or workout will be your best.

5. KEEP TRYING NEW THINGS. Have adventures together. Learn together. Just like fitness, sometimes you need to shake things up a bit. And remember, it's as much about the journey as the goals. Embrace every moment and enjoy the ride.

3. Get a mantra!!πŸ™‹πŸ» If you keep focusing on what you can't do, chances are you wont do them!! Replace "I can't" with "I CAN" or "I WILL"!!
4. Bulk up your meals with veggies!πŸ†
5. Order the smallest portion of everything.🍽Studies find we tend to eat what's in front of us, even though we're full.
