Evening πŸ™‚ Did you have a productive day?  I certainly did!  I finally wrapped up an article, got some invoicing done, and prepared for an upcoming Operation Beautiful presentation that I’m doing at University of Florida on Wednesday.

 

My mid-afternoon snack was a Green Monster (1 cup rice milk, 1/2 a banana, 2 cups raw spinach):

My other mid-afternoon snack was a delicious beer and some chips.  Ahh, the joys of working from home.  πŸ˜‰

I’ve never had this beer before but was intrigued by the description.  Coriander, orange, and lemon peel?  Yes, please!  It was delicious and refreshing.

The Husband make dinner because I worked until 8 PM.  Thank you, Husband!

beveri Add it! Golden Flaxseed Products

 

Lately, I’ve been using a new brand of flaxseed in my oatmeal.  The beveri Add it! line includes dried fruit with ground flax for extra flavors.  If you’ve been wondering what the little dark blue spots in my flax, it’s blueberries!

11052_196554402237_196549937237_3917309_5455692_n

I’m definitely loving this brand of flax.  It has a little natural sugar mixed in, too, so it’s kind of sweet and great as a sweet oatmeal topping or smoothie mix-in.

 

I’m giving away a PRIZE PACK of the following flavors:

 

  • beveri Organic Golden Flaxseed – Whole
  • beveri Organic Golden Flaxseed – Fine Milled
  • beveri Golden Flaxseed – Fine Milled with Cranberries
  • beveri Golden Flaxseed – Fine Milled with Blueberries
  • beveri Golden Flaxseed – Fine Milled with Mixed Berries

 

To enter, simply leave a comment describing one thing that made you HAPPY today!  Let’s bask in the positivity of big – or small – things.  I’ll draw a winner tomorrow at lunch.

 

Something that made me happy today was the Husband making me dinner! It was so sweet.

 

Oh, check out Comment #96 from today’s lunch post on the Itchy Runner.  We solved her problem!

    I’m student teaching right now, and this afternoon we pulled out a dictionary to look up some “Q” words. Some of the kids were really into it, so when I switched over to our read-aloud chapter book, I jokingly asked, “Ok, do you want me to read the Q words from the dictionary, or from the chapter book?” Half the kids in the class actually asked for me to read from the dictionary! hahaha. I didn’t do it, but it makes me really happy to see that kids enjoy those learning moments. πŸ™‚

    What made me happy today: Getting two workouts in today. I was tired after my first my workout then a 9 hour work day but I still made it back to the gym for my second session.

  • Ashlee March 15, 2010, 11:14 pm

    It was my boyfriend’s birthday so we went to brunch and my sister and her 4- and 2-year-old came, too. The 2-year-old was sitting on my lap and picked up the container with half-and-half and proceeded to slip it all over my lap. I could have gotten mad, but I just laughed because she was just trying to entertain herself until her food came. Plus, my boyfriend got a great laugh on his birthday.

  • Jen March 15, 2010, 11:15 pm

    I actually had some BIG things today… I’m on cloud 9! I’m a researcher and I had an article accepted for publication! I’m also a dietetics student and I got 3 offers for a hospital internship – now the tough part is deciding which one I want (comes down to what city I want to live in really!)

  • Kaitlyn March 15, 2010, 11:15 pm

    An absolutely gorgeous day = an absolutely HAPPY me!!

  • Jessie (Vegan-minded) March 15, 2010, 11:19 pm

    I am intrigued by that brand of flax, it sounds really good. What made me happy today: watching my cat trying to fit his body into an empty box that was way too small for him. He found a way to sit in it with his whole back end sticking out. It made me smile. πŸ™‚

  • Me-Linh @ Sweet and Sweat March 15, 2010, 11:19 pm

    One of the things that made me happy today was finishing my midterm! Yes!

  • *Andrea* March 15, 2010, 11:24 pm

  • Amy March 15, 2010, 11:31 pm

    I just found out today that my best friend is going to come visit me for the weekend, and she is going to watch me run a half marathon on Saturday…AND she’s excited for the race. Her support is especially pleasing because she used to “not get” why I run, but in recent months, she has become quite the runner herself! I think my love of running rubbed off on her!

  • Emily March 15, 2010, 11:37 pm

    The thing that made me happy today, was going through my two kids’ baby clothes with them. I loved reminiscing with them about when they were so tiny and showing them all of my favorite outfits.

    What made me happy today? I chose to be happy today.

    A lot of things went wrong, but I refused to let them get to me. I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and I’m getting back out there!

  • Jessica Lee March 15, 2010, 11:53 pm

  • Samantha March 16, 2010, 12:00 am

    Love anything flaxseed!

    It’s been a rough day here, as my 4 year old woke up at 3am with a fever of 103. He’s been on and off the nebulizer all day, and throwing up. But it kept us at home and I was able to be an ear/shoulder for a friend who recently experienced a family death. It didn’t make me happy “per se” but was glad I was able to be there for them…and on a day I hadn’t initially planned on being home.

  • jackie March 16, 2010, 12:06 am

    what made me happy today was getting the day off of work and it being the sunniest and warmest day of the year so far! i basically sat on the porch and read for hours!!!! bliss!!!

    My families newly adopted DOG made me HAPPY today! Her name is Teeny and she is a 2 year old Yorkie. She is absolutely adorable and sooooooo smart, too! She loves to cuddle and be held. Adopting her has already been such a positive experience for our family….even though we have only had her a few days!

  • Annie March 16, 2010, 12:22 am

    Dinner looks tdf!

    Today walking home from campus after a math quiz (that I rocked, woo!). I saw a girl pulled over in an suv. She had to have been in her mid 20’s and was crying all by herself. I tried to walk over without freaking her out too much. She rolled down the window and we just talked for a minute. I asked if she was ok and wanted me to call anyone for her. She started smiling and I felt pretty proud for stopping.

    Sitting and crying on such a gorgeous day like today is no way to spend time! Hope she is ok and knows I’m thinking of her! πŸ™‚

  • Jennifer March 16, 2010, 12:25 am

  • Joanne March 16, 2010, 12:35 am

    I have been going nuts for weeks since my boyfriend’s dog started shedding like crazy. I guess it’s time for the spring shed! I finally broke out the shop vac (the regular vacuum doesn’t stand a chance!) and went to town on the whole apartment. It made me really happy to see how much hair I was cleaning up and now my eyes are a lot less itchy!

  • Dominique March 16, 2010, 1:03 am

    Whether or not this contest is open to Cdns, I’m going to go for it anyway…although I don’t believe in them, my horoscope in the local paper said that today’s new moon makes it the perfect time to start being the person I want to be. It said I “WILL succeed now” which was pretty awesome. The BF had a positive horoscope too, saying that the new moon in the wealth area of his chart means that he will be getting some serious cash soon. True or not, they were both positive (not usually the case) and made me happy.

    Oh and grapes in my oatmeal made me happy because they were super sweet without having to add any kind of sweetener. Tomorrow’s oatmeal will include sweets as well.

  • Melissa G March 16, 2010, 1:07 am

  • Veronica March 16, 2010, 8:51 am

    Someone I barely know wrote me a (handwritten) note and gave me an adorable children’s book called Tear Soup. It was so thoughtful and certianly brightened my day.

  • Shannon March 16, 2010, 9:20 am

    The sun came out for the first time in a week, and the temperature soared to 55 degrees (very warm for mid-March in Minnesota). My daughters played in the backyard with soccer balls and doll strollers, where only a week ago we were sledding. After a long, cold, snowy winter, that made me happy.

  • Soraya March 16, 2010, 9:25 am

    My 5 year old cat, who has kidney failure, had a good day – took her outside for a walk on a leash! Made me happy!!

  • Lauren L. March 16, 2010, 9:25 am

    It’s amazing how weather can affect the day! When I got home from work it was still light outside because of the glorious daylight savings time and I went on a 5-mile run – my first after being sick for 10 days – and I ran into two friends from college while I was out running. So fun!

  • maegan March 16, 2010, 9:26 am

    the sun finally coming out and the rain stopping!

  • Krsten B March 16, 2010, 9:31 am

  • Kate March 16, 2010, 9:41 am

    I looove flax, this kind sounds awesome! It made me so happy today that even though I worked late, it was (barely!) light enough outside to go for a short RUN! I am stuck in the midwest and running outside is a treat that is rare for me before daylight savings time kicks in!

  • Amanda March 16, 2010, 9:41 am

    Making one of my best batches of banana ‘soft serve’ and trying kale chips! And then snuggling with my puppy. πŸ™‚

  • Jessica March 16, 2010, 9:43 am

    One thing that made me happy is being able to sleep in today! I work out every morning, but this morning my body was telling me to relax and get some sleep. I feel great and know that my afternoon workout will be that much better!

  • Kelly March 16, 2010, 9:44 am

    Ummm my cat waiting at the front door for me!

  • Emily March 16, 2010, 9:59 am

  • daisy melo March 16, 2010, 10:05 am

  • Anisha March 16, 2010, 10:20 am

    A small coincidence where me and another person were thinking about each other at the same time and both wrote eachother a note saying that!

  • Kelly March 16, 2010, 10:29 am

    My puppy. Seeing her waiting for me after a rough Monday made everything better!

  • Carrie H March 16, 2010, 10:51 am

    I hope I’m not too late! I ran 17 miles Sunday and was tired but decided to do a very low impact workout yesterday to get rid of some of the soreness. I walked two slow miles with my doggie in 40* weather (warm for me! that’s springtime in Wyoming!) and enjoyed the evening and later sunset after work. It made me happy to remember that I love to walk as well as run. πŸ™‚

  • Krista March 16, 2010, 11:31 am

    I got a PR (personal record) on my bench press Monday, which made me ecstatic! Only because it was a mental barrier for me and I was too scared to try out the next sized dumbbells. Made my evening!

  • Stephanie March 16, 2010, 11:36 am

    My two pups cuddling up with me this morning made me super happy! Oh and the fact that the sun was up earlier and it’s a beautiful day was nice too!

    Something that made me happy today was getting out of the house ON TIME with the breakfast dishes washed, the house tidied, the bed made, and the doggie walked without feeling rushed. If all days could go so smoothly!

  • jvegegirl March 16, 2010, 12:10 pm

    My run with my best friend!

  • Theresa March 16, 2010, 12:15 pm

    Even though it was on Sunday, I am still glowing this morning from completing my first half marathon. I had given up on my original goal of finishing in 2hours and 15minutes because I didn’t train as hard as I had originally planned. But I finished in 2 hours and 12 minutes! I felt so great and proud of myself. I couldn’t believe how great I felt afterward, such an accomplishment.

  • Liz March 16, 2010, 12:19 pm

    My girlfriend sent me a smiley picture of her too-cute, 6 month-old son. Made my day!

    Watching your triathlon video and watching your husband run with you out of the water and take that picture of you as you crossed the finish line…it was so sweet how supportive he is!

  • Cellabella March 16, 2010, 12:30 pm

    This morning I went on a walk/run with my little pooch. Being with her outside makes me appreciate my surroundings so much more then when I used to run alone and get into a zone where all I concentrated on was how fast and far I was going. Now I’m so happy and grateful that I can be with her as we watch ducks, chase leaves, and roll around in sweet smelling grass. Well, that last one’s her, not me πŸ™‚

  • Kelsey March 16, 2010, 12:36 pm

    i’m on spring break and i couldn’t be happier!!!

  • Lori March 16, 2010, 12:39 pm

    Something that made me happy yesterday was that I exercised after work even though I really didn’t want to. I don’t do it nearly enough and can be pretty lazy, but I’ve been trying lately. The girls at work do 10 laps around our office building going up and down 2 flights of stairs with each lap. It’s harder than it looks! And it was so warm here in Phx yesterday. But I sure did feel much better after we were done!

  • Jennifer March 16, 2010, 12:43 pm

    Come Happy!!
    I think I have a few today: the sun is shining (I live in Northwest Indiana, just outside Chicago); a high school friend (I graduated in 1990) who lives in Florida has offered comp tix to Animal Kingdom for my husband and I when we hit Orlando in August; another high school friend surprised me with a phone call this morning and we are meeting for a quick lunch on Friday!!!

    It’s like hitting the lottery! Well, sort of! πŸ™‚
    Go Happy!!

  • gabi March 16, 2010, 12:45 pm

    going shopping! i really want to try flax seeds!

  • Emma March 16, 2010, 1:02 pm

    After a bad day at college today I came home and sat on my bed to read a book. About ten minutes in I felt a nudging at my elbow then a tugging on my shirt – my rat, Nico, had managed to open his cage door and came over to climb onto my shoulder and nuzzle in and cheer me up!

  • Dena March 16, 2010, 1:04 pm

    One thing that made me happy today was seeing Alice in Wonderland! Ahhh I loved it πŸ™‚

  • Robyn March 16, 2010, 1:22 pm

    That’s easy. Today I have a day off and after a long run got a mani/pedi πŸ™‚

  • Jen March 16, 2010, 1:24 pm

    Warmer weather on the horizon!

  • Elana March 16, 2010, 1:30 pm

    I hope it’s not too late to enter cause I really would like to try those! What’s making me happy is seeing the sun after the last few days of a Nor’Easter with pooourrring rain and hail in Boston! Also the fact that my sickness corresponded with the storm so that now that I’m feeling better, the sun is out!

  • Claire March 16, 2010, 1:36 pm

    I hope I didn’t miss the deadline : ) Something that made me happy? I had banana/peanut butter/oatmeal for breakfast. An oldie but a goodie : )

    A phone call with my cousin made me happy today.

  • Lisa @ Early Morning Run March 16, 2010, 2:27 pm

    I love morningstar blackbean burgers. Yum!

    Two things have made me particularly happy today:
    1. The rain is gone, the sun is out and it’s warming up!
    2. I found a HUGE bulk section at a grocery store nearby that is bigger than any other I’ve seen in the city so far! I was in heaven. haha!

    My Boston Terrier puppy makes me happy on a daily basis!

    My new perfume made my happy today… I love that the smell puts a smile on my face. πŸ™‚

    I think I’m too late, but I’ve never seen those before, they sound good! Thing that made me happy today was when Chris brought my pants to work since I rode in on the bike and forgot them the day before! That would have been interesting walking around with tight spandex padded shorts and heels hmmm not a pretty picture πŸ™‚

  • Gina March 16, 2010, 2:51 pm

    I got up early, took a spin class and made a real breakfast and a delicious lunch for work this morning!!!

  • Erika March 16, 2010, 3:03 pm

    Sleeping in and getting to watch the Price is Right with my husband… hey it’s the little things, right? πŸ™‚

  • Amanda March 16, 2010, 6:18 pm

    I’ve been out of work for several months and my new temp job has been a source of happiness and worthiness for me.

  • Steph March 16, 2010, 7:06 pm

    Catching up with a close friend!

  • Betty March 16, 2010, 7:09 pm

    This morning I was getting ready to leave for work. My bf was looking for his shoes to walk me out when I hear him singing…..” Where are my zapatooooos” it was way cute and made me smile. That made me happy today.

    Watching the sun rise!!! as cheezy as it sounds its very inspiring…and it gave me the strength to be optimistic and not let the bad things beat me down ! πŸ™‚

  • Julia March 16, 2010, 7:37 pm

    one thing that made me happy today was the weather: OMG perfect spring weather for the first time in ages!! It was so nice to feel the warmth on my skin

  • Lauren March 16, 2010, 7:41 pm

    I went for a run *before* my weights class at the gym. I was motivated by all of the fit bloggers and now I’m so happy with myself! πŸ™‚

  • Dani March 16, 2010, 8:44 pm

    listening to music in my car loud and singing with my windows down on a nice day

  • mel March 16, 2010, 9:08 pm

    studying and working on my paper at starbucks with my hubs today!

  • cali March 17, 2010, 8:57 am

    Recycling my stacks and stacks of old magazines – why was I hoarding this clutter!?

  • La March 17, 2010, 10:44 am

    The bright sunshine everywhere and watching my cats play in it!!

  • Jennifer March 17, 2010, 12:25 pm

    Spring weather finally and going for an afterwork pedi with my girlfriends!

  • Sydney March 17, 2010, 12:32 pm

    I wish this was a difficult question to answer bc so many positive things happened but alas it’s the opposite. I’m finding it difficult to put a positive spin on the last few days of this week. So, despite being stressed to the max about everything I’m going to try to feel good about just being productive. And I also made my first GM; I have smoothies all the time but never with almond milk. I put strawberries and blueberries in mine. it was yummy.

  • Astrid March 17, 2010, 8:52 pm

    Seeing my dog, Malcom! And wishing my boyfriend’s mom a happy birthday! Oops that is 2 things!
