Wow people, wow. Once again, Wildfox Couture has gotten inside my head to design. First, it was a cat lady collection for resort and now the Clueless collection for Spring 2013. You know how I love Clueless fashion. And it just happened to be right when I needed an image of unmotivated-looking exercisers for my happiness project update. Thank you Wildfox, you’re my jam.
As many of you know the focus of my happiness project for January is to make fitness a habit. I had big plans, oh yes, I did. I was going to start off right by working out every day before work. I was going to follow the Crazy Sexy Diet to a T. Sometimes though, life gets in the way. Sometimes, you get the flu, sometimes your face is so full of mucus you must resign to drinking ginger-whiskey tea all day and watching TV to distract you from the pain. It’s not exactly picture perfect fitness. And so, I was debating switching things up and focusing on spirituality this month. I was waffling.
But then I was complaining about this to my mama and she said something that made me think of Gretchen’s saying, “Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good.” Maybe my aim for fitness perfection was really just a way to make it too hard to start so I could put it off…
January will still be the month to make fitness a habit, it might be that I walk to the end of my driveway before work instead of hitting the gym but if you saw me over XMAS break you would know what progress this is. Oh and, the green juice from Crazy Sexy Diet, that is still happening. I need it.
On that note, in case you are wondering about the connection of fitness to happiness, let my other favorite movie blonde, Elle, remind you, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.”
So let’s get fit shall we?
