Welcome to the Top 20

by Meghann on October 22, 2009

I MADE IT TO THE TOP 20!!!!

  • Goal #1 – Make it to the Top 20
  • Goal #2 – Fight like hell to stay there! ;)

I can’t thank everyone enough for all the support and votes! You can bet if I am selected I will be the perkiest, happiest Good Mood Blogger there ever was.

Please keep the votes coming until Oct. 30th so I can seal my slot in the Top 20 until the very end.

And don’t forget to vote for these lovely ladies as well!

Lindsey (www.soundeats.com)
Sarah (www.muchfruit.wordpress.com)
Ashley (www.dailygoods.wordpress.com)
Monica (www.runeatrepeat.com)
Amanda (www.runtothefinish.blogspot.com)

Remember “All for One and One for All” ;)

Waking up and seeing myself in the Top 20 was a wonderful way to start my day. I am pretty sure I had a big goofy smile plastered on my face for my entire 5 mile run.

The whole run I was thinking of what keeps me in a good mood and what I could write about. By the end I couldn’t help, but feel confident and joyous about life. The ideas just kept pouring in. I believe if we all spent our mornings thinking about the good things in life, the world would be a much more positive, happy place.

One of the things that keeps me in a good mood? A good breakfast! Especially cereal for breakfast.

I really wanted some nut butter this morning. The Naturally Nutty Toffee Butter Peanut Butter is always a nice sweet touch in the morning.

Some other things I thought of on my run that keeps me in a good mood were:

  • Marathon training
  • Trying new things
  • Invent new meals
  • Spending time with my family
  • Maddie
  • Derek
  • Traveling/ New Adventures
  • Blogging
  • Reading right before I fall asleep

I could go on and on with this list, but I think you get the idea.

What are some things that keep you in a good mood at the moment?

awesome job! But I thought the motto was “every woman for herself” now that you’re in the top 20?

I’m still in a good mood/on a high from a 4.15 mile run I did yesterday (I haven’t run that much in a long time). And also my faith in God, good friends, the sunshine and all the little things about my day that I take for grated sometimes.

Good luck in the contest! I’m in it too, but I only have 100 votes so I’m sure I’ll be throwing some your way :)

Ok…this question is kind of strange, but I was wondering what that website is where you can search a bunch of race archives to find the results instead of just going to the race website. I think I saw it on here…

THANKS!!

I’ve actually never commented before, but I’ve been reading your blog for a few months – lurker alert!

Anywayyyy I’m commenting because I read that Worker Bee interview you previously linked to. I loved it for multiple reasons – I work full-time as well (with a killer commute) and it sounds like we have very similar jobs! I’m the marketing coordinator for a very small Internet software company in Atlanta. Just thought it was a cool coincidence, especially since I’ve been trying (more successfully lately) to lead a more healthy lifestyle.

Congrats on making it to the top 20! I think you’d be a great Good Mood Blogger!

28 Julie @savvyeats October 22, 2009 at 12:44 pm

I love quiet mornings when I first wake up to a bowl of oatmeal and coffee. Morning workouts are great to wake me up and feel good for the rest of the day

Some things that keep me happy are:

Yummy breakfasts keep me in a great mood. I love looking forward to breakfast when I wake up! :) Also, when I’m running I think about my husband and how much he supports me. That helps my mood if my run is less than stellar.
