Wonderful Wednesday!

Last Sunday I started to think about my daily attitude. Overall I am a pretty positive person but sometimes I get cranky and grumpy and tired. So I thought that maybe I should try to be more positive, be a better listener, and just an overall happier person each day.

Well it seems to be working. Brian thinks it is because I am running again but I am not sure. I don't know how to explain it but things have been going better because I haven't been sweating the small stuff and I have been trying to be happy even when I have a bad day at work because I get to go home and leave work behind.

Last night I did head out for a short run. I did two laps around my apartment complex for a total of 0.75 miles. Brian joined me for the first lap then set out on his own. I made sure to stretch beforehand and felt great throughout the run.

Tonight I am making a homemade birthday cake for Brian (his bday is Friday!!) so I hope to have some pictures to share tomorrow! I am so excited! Hope everyone is having a great day! The weekend is right around the corner!

P.S. Go check out RunToTheFinish - She is on a giveaway rampage!

Yumm! Yay for homemade cakes!!

I'm definitely a happier, positive, more-cheery person when I am running on a regular basis - ESPECIALLY if I do my run in the morning!

I've been trying to channel the positive energy at work lately because I noticed that things have been getting to me too much. Glad to hear it's working for you too!

Running mellows me out and makes me a happier person in general. Glad you are feeling happier!
