Chelle: A day in the Life

Yesterday was gloomy. I woke up achy. The weather was YUK! The TV was hogged. I had NO FOOD in the house. The house was a mess. Yelle was ignoring me really busy. I was completely unmotivated and 100% pathetic.
All that = one grumpy cave girl alone in her sad, dark cave.
Finally, after pitying myself MOST of the day, I reluctantly forced myself into my spandex shorts and finger shoes and made my way to the park for a run-as-fast-as-you-can-until-you-cant, lunge, pushup punishment x2. I instantly felt better, every person I passed at the park was happy. I must have exchanged a dozen smiles. I sweat a ton and got some much need 02 to my poor deprived brain cells. Suddenly, motivated and still high off a shot of vitamin D and endorphins, I cleaned my car (that I'm certain had things living in it) and did a load of dishes, went to the grocery AND  forced Yelle to hang out with me. We went to beach to watch the sunset. :)

Good story, huh?

The only goal I have in writing this blog is that at some point someone is inspired. Life ain’t easy. It’s tough and busy and full of “WTH just happened RIGHT NOW”! But, it’s also YOUR life and YOUR responsibility to not settle for anything less than FAB. My bestest friend (you may know her… her name's like mine only LOUDER). Constantly reminds me to embrace everything that I love about myself and try everyday to be little better than the last. Figure out what makes you happy. What defines you?? Here is my list. This is what I will forever choose to surround myself with.
