Hi darlins'! It's great to see ya here!

We've all been there. Some days, for whatever reason, everything you have to do just seems so daunting. Never mind the reality, that perception alone is enough to completely suck the energy & happiness out of my day.

Yesterday was one of those days for me. (Luckily, I had a little help!)

Tip 1 (advice I took from my genius friend, Sabrina @ Lit Laugh Love)
Look at Inspirational/Motivational Quotes

Here are some of my favorites:

Tip 2
When I pound out the miles it just clears away all my frustrations.

Tip 3
Enjoy something "girly"

For me, it was drinking a strawberry, banana and peach vanilla protein smoothie post-workout... and adding a few drops of red food coloring to make it a really pretty pink color. I then proceeded to enjoy said smoothie with copious amounts of Downtown Abbey :)

Strawberry, Banana, Peach Vanilla Protein Smoothie
1 c. frozen fruit (I used a Dole blend of strawberries, bananas and peaches)
3/4 c. plain non-fat yogurt
1/2 scoop vanilla muscle milk protein powder
add ice to desired thickness (I ended up adding too much ice so I diluted it with a dash of water)

Blend & Devour!

Tip 4
Read something just for fun.

This morning I was gifted the September issue of Real Simple (a happy thing in and of itself!) -- I took a quiet moment to flip through it and mark some articles that looked interesting. You'll never know what you'll find in a mag that will brighten your day! A perfect example is that I saw an article talking how light green was the "on trend" transitional nail color to wear. Wouldn't you know, I gave myself a pedi a couple days ago in exactly that shade!

Thanks for reading!

What are some things you do to brighten your bad days?
