a Blog Challenge Day 1: My Daily Success Plan + Happy Tweets Tuesday!

Good Morning, lovely, lovely, HAPPY People!

Coming out of a weekend of moving with a MASSIVE head cold, Monday acted as my weekend, even though I had a full day of work! I slept in, didn’t go to the gym (shame on me), made breakfast for my husband and I, went to work, and came home to watch a movie with my sister before heading to my friends’ house for a couple of hours. Very relaxed, VERY zen.

Well, now it’s time for me to rally the troops (troops meaning myself), and DO something!

I am in the middle of a lot of transition right now. As I mentioned previously, Timmykins and I moved this weekend (more on that later), I am still mentally transitioning into this new year and everything it means for me personally, and amongst all of this, I am transitioning into routine, and living towards my core desired feelings.

With this whole routine she-bang, I have decided to participate in another blog challenge with the lovely Natalie Sisson of http://suitcaseentrepreneur.com/. The last time I partook in her blog challenge, it made me open up and explore ideas that I never had before. This time, I am starting a little late, but at least I am showing up to participate (and whole-heartedly, at that)! Day #1 prompt? Share my daily success plan.

Current (most days):
Wake up early (6ish). Drink warm lemon water. GYM TIME! Healthy breakfast. Long shower. -WORK- Zumba, sometimes yoga. Healthy dinner. Work from home. Bed.

Going forward (nearly every day):
Wake up around 6. Drink warm lemon water. Gym time (with GUSTO) OR Yoga (with GUSTO). Make a healthy breakfast. Quick shower. Blog/check emails/schedule Roamin4Happiness posts. Work – build in deep breathing and movement breaks. Zumba and or yoga and or a long walk after work. Cook a healthy meal, and it with Timmykins. Reflect on the day. Go to sleep earlier!

I know that it is the lack of routine and self-accountability that is eating away at my days. I know I am my own worst enemy, and it’s time for me to stop me in my tracks by encouraging my own wellness and transformation. It is only then that my energy, creativity, happiness, and BLOG/lifestyle brand will THRIVE!

Oh, you know what else will thrive with routine? Happy Tweets Mondays. Or Tuesday (for an exception like today). And, I promise that if you get into the routine of reading them (like I do every week as I post them), they will put a little pep in your step!

So, now for today’s little pep. From me (and all those who tweet), to YOU!

Enjoy!

Happy Tweets Monday #50!

Looking back through past Happy Tweet posts, I realized that this is the 50th compilation of Tweets that I have shared on this blog based on happiness, success, and overall well-being. I have found them to be nice reminders – especially on those tough-to-live-through Mondays – of what I can do and how great my life is with the right mindset!

This week’s kind of have the theme of looking inside yourself for happiness. It is you and you alone who makes YOU happy, by what you say, think, how you act, and your perspective. So say only good, think productively, act wisely, and keep a positive perspective.

And I will work on me too 🙂 Enjoy!

Happy Tweets MONDAY!

Hello, Happy People! Welcome to another Monday batch of Happy Tweets!

If you are new, first of all, welcome! Mondays (sometimes Tuesdays or even Thursdays) on Roamin4Happiness are reserved for Happy Tweets that I have discovered that are not only joyful, but also motivating, with a few sprinkled in to make you question your actions, life, and PURPOSE! They are meant to challenge all of us, and to help us start the week out as positively as possible!

So, read on, and ENJOY!

Happy Tweets: Monday EVENING Edition!

I have said it before and I will say it again: Happy Tweets are appropriate ANY TIME! I am in need of a little motivation this evening as I organize, pack, and move forward with some DREAMS in my off time! But, once I get home, I tend to think “Ehhh, I have all the time in the world!” to take care of things! Guess what: THE time is NOW!

So, enjoy, and then get your but up and do something to better yourself! I sure will!

Who is in for a little motivation today? After this birthday/Easter weekend filled with laser tag, golf, cleaning, friends. family, and FOOD, I need an afternoon WAKE UP CALL! So, it’s time for Happy Tweets Monday!

Happy Tweets: To Be Used ANY Day Of The Week!

Good Afternoon, Happy People!

After each big event, I feel like things will calm down, that life will be a little less hectic. But, who the heck wants that, really? That sounds boring. So, instead of taking a weekend just to relax, get some things done around the house – you know, things that none of us have done in MONTHS – we decided to take a weekend trip up to see Timmykin’s grandma in Pennsylvania! It was not near enough time, but we packed in as much visiting and exploring as we could. That also meant that I didn’t have my computer on (except a little time to work on Saturday evening), which means no blogging until today! So, I apologize for my tardiness of our regularly scheduled Happy Tweets, but guess what? ANY day is a good day for Happy Tweets! Enjoy!

Happy Tweets Monday

Well, Hello Happy People!

Fancy seeing you here! Shouldn’t you be, I don’t know, at work or celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or something?

I, myself, have spent my day at work, in a green pea coat (gotta stay festive!), in a very calm mood. And I have been told over and over that I should NOT be so calm right now…I am getting married in 4 days! Thinking about it gives me butterflies, but as you may know by now, I take one thing at a time. I have so much happening prior to the wedding that has nothing to do with it, that I need to get through those things and final preparations before it will really hit me!

In order to keep emotions at bay, as well as get me through these last few days of work, I think it’s best for me to continue on with this Happy Tweets routine as I do every week! What do you say? Are you ready to enjoy this Tweet roundup?

Here it goes!

I hope that these Tweets are little messages you can take to heart and carry with you throughout your day. Whether you are needing the motivation to finish a project, make it through a major transition in your life, or just need something to make you smile, I want this to do all of that and so much more.
 
These will do for you what you allow them to.
 
Thanks, and have a Happy Day!

Does anyone else feel sometimes like the “Happy” in Happy Tweets Monday should be replaced with “Inspirational”??
 
I feel that most days. But do you have the same feeling as I that happiness and inspiration go hand-in-hand? Think about it as you consider these tweets, then let me know what you think!

Happy Tweets Monday!

Hello, Hello, Happy People!

I hope you had a fruitful weekend! Albeit fruitful in work, play, or sleep! Did you do what was healthy and invigorating for you?

Mine was a weekend filled with marriage prep classes, my brother’s high school basketball game, a family dinner, knitting, eating healthy, and working out! I didn’t skip a day AT ALL last week in the beginning of my new work out program (woo hoo!!!), and I am so energized to continue on! Even on the “rest” days I am getting my cardio in through zumba and yoga or heading to the gym to choose from their selection of cardio machines! Due to all of this hard work, my sore muscles serve as an AWESOME reminder that putting sugar, sugar, sugar into my body (I have a massive sweet tooth) will just undo all of the pain and work I put in at the gym. I did bend and share half of a bagel with Timmykins at marriage prep class, but it was just the bit of “bad” I needed to continue on. It’s OK to indulge every once in awhile, but while I am trying to break this habit of eating sweet all of the time (and lose weight while I’m at it), I just need to stay away as much as possible! Lunch today? 4oz of grilled chicken, cucumbers, carrots, and the TINIEST bit of cottage cheese!

Writing this out – just laying it out in front of me – is really helping me hold myself accountable, and I LOVE IT! 1 week down in this program, 11 weeks left, and the rest of my life left to live healthily!

Now, onto what you’ve all been waiting for: HAPPY TWEETS MONDAY!

Are you as motivated as I? If not, read some of these and get your head in the game for this week! Enjoy!

Happy Tweets Friday!

Hello, Happy People!

For a lot of you, this is the afternoon home-stretch of your week! Even if your work week was cut short by the holiday, exhaustion is setting in from the festivities, and instead of feeling the second day of work, it has quickly become evident that this is, indeed, FRIDAY.

So, I thought it would be appropriate to share happy tweets today! To get you through the remaining, grueling hours of your workday, and motivate you to get things DONE this weekend.

But, also to motivate me. There is a snow storm a-comin’, and I need that “OOMPH!” to not stay curled up in my warm bed all day tomorrow 🙂

Enjoy!
