Things That Make Me Happy

This guy:
Eric is the best! I'm amazed everyday with the amount of patience he has with me. Plus, he makes me laugh.. A lot. Such a babe. 

I'm obsessed with these girls. They completely understand me. They know all my imperfections and love me lots anyway. 
I can't forget all these ladies either. I've always been so close to my cousins. They're like sisters to me. 

Good friends:

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Eric and I have the coolest friends! I love all of them (many not pictured), they are like family and we have so much fun together!
I also love the friends I work with. They are so awesome! They were such good sports when I had them do Zumba at a team work party. I learn so much from each and every one of them. 

Good food (that somebody makes for me): 
I had these fabulous CLEAN chicken enchiladas in our new Real Foods Market in Salt Lake City and they were pretty much brilliant. I love food but I really don't like making it myself. When somebody makes me food (healthy food especially), that is guaranteed to put a smile on my face.  

Finishing a workout: 
Whether it's finishing a long run or laying down in savasana after a good yoga class. The world seems to always be a better place and I'm able to better accept myself and be happy where I am in life. 

Finishing a big race is pretty cool too! 

Oh and a kombucha of course! I drank this baby last week when I had a tummy ache and it settled it within minutes. Also, french macarons... sea salted caramel might be my favorite flavor... Yummmmy!

Have a great Wednesday! 

Happy Fitnessing!

Tell me something that makes you happy?

Have you tried a french macaron?

Have you tried kombucha? You should, or maybe we shouldn't be friends;)...

What are your weekend plans?


  1. Chels, do you know much about kombucha? I started drinking it, and then I found some articles about it being really bad for you. Now I don't know what to think. I want to love it.

    1. Oh dang! I haven't seen any articles against it yet, and I don't want it to ruin my addiction! ;) I know some people are concerned because it's a fermented drink so they associate it with other alcoholic drinks but it's totally not the same. Yes, whenever you ferment anything some form and trace amount of alcohol will be produced but it is seriously so small an amount it can't do anything to you.

      Kombucha is made from tea (usually black but you could really use any herbal tea) and sugar. You put a start or "scoby" as they call it (which is a bacteria from a mushroom) in with the tea and sugar and it feeds off the two and gives off kombucha so you're not really drinking sugar or tea. It has a whole gang of probiotics that are easy to absorb.

      Hopefully that helps a little. Don't give up on it! :)
