Happiness...focusing on happiness

As I've been rather depressed lately, I think it's quite fitting that I do the little activity (or whatever the heck it's called) that's going around blog-land. Thanks to those of you who have asked me to do this!!!! I need to focus on these 'happy things' versus the depressing things!

10 things that make me happy.
1. My kitty cats! (oh wait, can I break that down and call it 1, Lucy; 2. Ethel 3. on and so forth. But that's cheating)
2. Spending time with my husband (ooops, that should have been first shouldn't it have been?)
3. Baking. I love to bake and it makes me happy to do so
4. Spending time with my parents
5. Family-brother and his family in particular
6. Warm summer days..spent outdoors...the scent of honeysuckle or lilac heavy in the air
7. Big snow storms when I'm warm and cozy in my house...snowed in with the love of my life
8. A good meal....deliciously prepared...with top of the line ingredients
9. A good book and a nice comfy couch with warm toasty blanket to cuddle under.
10. Good friends

This is a superb recipe that I made, yup, they were baked. Berry-Banana Muffins I did muffins...and each muffin is only 2 WW points. They are VERY tasty too!

Well well well. I actually got on the exercise bike during TBL last night and rode. One hour, so hopefully this will put me back on the proper track for exercise! My eating....Tuesdays are usually my 'cheat day'. Well, not really cheat, but they are my 'have a big heavy meal' day. Hey, we have to get that stuff out of our system. It would not be healthy for me to give up foods that I honestly my Tuesday heavy meal is my way of getting those foods...but in moderation! One meal. (not the every day every meal that we used to eat like that). But my plan is made for my eating today and I'm on track!

I kinda like the one day, one meal deal. Moderation, of course, being key. I'd have to work on that part. :)

I am totally going to try those muffins, the recipe looks great and I even bookmarked your recipe page! You are very like me in the things that make you happy... Family, Friends, and being able to curl up with a great book pretty much sum up a bunch of my list (especially when I have a nice Syracuse snowstorm outside)

I absolutely agree about the importance of still eating the foods we love! Our journeys are not about deprivation, rather a complete lifestyle change.

It sounds like you are doing great with your fitness activities, especially with that 1 hour ride!

BTW - I also like the part about you should have made your husband #1 on the list, made me chuckle! Ahhh, he must know how much you love him. Have a terrific Thursday, smiles!
