The Little Things


In life, I often get caught up in the big things. If I'm studying for a few hard tests, I let them take over my day and I block out everything else without even taking time for a deep breath. As I get busier and busier I find that I'm not really living on purpose, but rather just going through the motions. And honestly, it's exhausting, boring and it's no way to live. To break out of the routine, I try and take more time to notice the little things that make me happy in life. I keep a list of little things that I love in the "notes" section of my phone. It's like a toast to them, because I think the little things are the things that matter most to me. Whenever I think of something new I add it on, and it has been getting bigger for probably 8 months now. When I'm down and losing sight of what's important, I look over it and my mood is automatically elevated. I thought I would share that list with you now, unedited, so I could inspire you to create your own and so you can learn a little bit about me and what fuels my fire.


Here's to lattes, and here's to campfires. Here's to painting, flowers, the moon, books, and avocados. Here's to sunny days and starry nights. Here's to days spent mostly in the water, here's to cups of tea. Here's to old friends, and to new ones too. Here's to big windows and exploring. Here's to the change of seasons and old photographs and pretty dresses. Here's to yoga and s'mores. Here's to being nervous, in the best way. Here's to real smiles and real laughs and real hugs. Here's to farmers markets and long runs and new shoes. Here's to freckles and the smell after rain. Here's to the people who are more than they seem. Here's to watermelon and lemonade and picnics and big dogs. Here's to sleepy mornings and rainy car rides. Here's to green grass and green smoothies. Here's to cotton candy and grandparents. Here's to sleeping while it's raining and new pencils. Here's to finding comfort in prayer. Here's to pajamas and babies and chocolate croissants. Here's to nail polish and fuzzy blankets. Here's to fireflies and to rainboots and beautiful views that make you feel all giddy. Here's to Pom-poms and peonies and the color pink. Here's to lip gloss and twinkle lights and movies with popcorn. Here's to all the little things.

      Thank you so much! I think we all feel a little overwhelmed by the big things sometimes, and that's just what makes us human. Hope you enjoyed your Sunday, girlie!

    Try mixing up the grip for the back. To give your lift more strength, try a mixed or a staged grip with your deadlifts and your rack pulls. A staggered grip will help you twist the bar in one direction while the underhand drip will twist the bar in the opposite direction. This keeps the weight bar from rolling around in your hands.Make sure that your short-term goals are realistic. Trying to lift too much too fast is a surefire way to sink your long-term goals and cause your body injury. After you determine your baseline strength, see to it that you reach for the best results in each routine.

    Never forget a pre-workout stretch. Stretching is necessary to warm your muscles before you begin, which prevents you from hurting yourself. Stretching after a workout can also relax your muscles as they go into recovery. Another way to encourage muscle recovery is through gentle massage, which often incorporates gentle stretches.Start your routine by stretching for ten minutes or more. This allows your muscles to warm up, preventing future injury. Preventing injuries can help keep you working out.

    Massages help to relax and also encourage muscles to grow more quickly.It is very important that you stretch before working out. Stretching is the way to warm up muscles, and it will help you avoid injury. Also, stretching after you are finished will help your muscles cool down going into the recovery phase. In addition to stretching, getting regular massages aids in muscle relaxation and recovery, a vital part of building muscle.

    Some exercises where you can safely use larger weights include: presses, rows and deadlifts.When you are working out to increase muscle mass, try to keep your diet full of fresh, whole foods. Anything that comes in a box or can should be passed over, as the chemicals it contains can hurt your immune system and reduce your energy levels. Eating a healthy diet boosts your immune system and will increase the effectiveness of your exercise routine.

    If you keep your workouts under sixty minutes, you will reap the rewards of your efforts faster and enjoy the benefits of your hard work.Always include the "big three" exercises in your training schedule. Bench presses, squats and dead lifts help build bulk. These exercises are designed to help you bulk up, but they also improve your strength and endurance as well.

    This will help ensure that your heart remains healthy without negatively impacting your efforts at building muscle.While it can be tempting to power your way through your workouts and to use maximum speed to do your repetitions, don't do it! To get the best results, perform each movement slowly and methodically. A good goal to aim for is to take five to 10 seconds for each half of the exercise movement, for 20 seconds total per rep

    See a doctor if you have joint fatigue or pain. If you already keep an exercise log, add a "pain" section to each workout to record any problems you might have.To motivate you and get you started on the right foot when beginning a physical fitness program, record your activity in a journal. This type of record is sure to create greater knowledge of your habits and is a great way to gauge successes along the way.

    For best results, incorporate different abdominal exercises into your routine.Keep track of your calorie consumption. When you know the number of calories you ingest every day, you can better determine whether you will gain or lose weight. If you burn more calories than you eat, you will lose weight.
