Do you still have that January freshness? You know, that excitement for what’s to come in the new year? I have it bad and it’s feeling oh so good.
I think it’s a combination of things that have me so jazzed up. One being the paleo challenge I’m on. Though I’m not convinced paleo is a way of life that’s right for my family, I do appreciate the real food goodness it focuses on. It’s helped me put the spotlight back on whole foods and my energy levels are feeling good (even with today’s 4:15 wake up time… teething, is that you again?).
But it even goes beyond good food.
Yesterday I got together with my local Shaklee ladies at Trump National.
I really love when we can all get together because the energy is unreal. There is something about getting together with women (and men, but none were representin’ yesterday) that all share a passion for health and helping people that invigorates me. Our team is awesome and my friend Brooke never fails to inspire me. Gatherings like this remind me the power of being around others that live a life of positivity. It’s contagious.
Sound like a love fest? It kind of was. Plus, there was salmon!
After being inspired by the ladies, I continued to get to play grown-up for the rest of the day. I had a conference call about a project I’ve been working on behind the scenes for months (years even?) that is now THISclose to being ready to share with you, then I had a chance to meet with the awesome people at one of my favs.
I grabbed some LaCroix while I was there to distract David from the fact that he can’t drink beer right now and picked up some more honey for a TV segment I have this morning with WCCB News Rising.
Needless to say it was a packed day full of the things that invigorate me- positive people with a passion for health. And I couldn’t have made it to any of these meetings without Mema’s help wrangling this saucy three-year-old.
We escaped the terrible twos, but I tell you what, three is trying to turn my hair gray some days. But that’s a post for another day. Let’s just say hooray for having awesome/involved grandparents. Hailey and Kaitlyn are some lucky little girls.
For dinner I doubled (tripled?) the veggies in this lemon rosemary chicken in an attempt to fill up David’s stomach (which he claims is slowly being starved ha). I think it did the trick! We even had leftovers.
Clearly this post is all over the place. Is it a WIAW? Is it about positive energy? Day in the life?
…can it be about all of the above?
I Just have this ball of joy, energy and excitement within me right now that’s pushing me to bring my best to life. As cheesy as it may sound, I feel inspired to be healthy, to be grateful and to share that with others.
Do you know that feeling? Maybe it’s your career, your family, your health, your faith…
Share it with me!
What gets your energy flowing and gets you excited?
