Well, I went to bed with one thing on my mind last night.
Well, actually just the title of this blog. There was something about its former name that just wasn’t quite doing it for me. “Sweat, Sweets, and Shopping” just doesn’t roll off the tongue.
My aha moment was reached when the title “Fueling Happy” came to mind. I immediately got out of bed and wrote it down on a little scrap of paper (that’s now crumpled in the trash). I guess someone else thought it was just as awesome as I did, because this morning when I went to change the title, it was already taken. Dang it. But hey, looks like now I have another blog to follow!
I loved the idea of a little play on words, using the word “fuel” in place of “feel”, while still utilizing the meaning of the word. To me, the fuel for a healthy life is not just the nutrients you place in your body (though there will be a lot of that discussed), it’s really anything that brings you happiness. Whether it be sweating it out in a morning workout, slurping down a green protein smoothie, finally mastering that perfect sock bun, indulging in a giant sundae with your best friends, jazzing up that plain white tee with a new statement necklace, blasting country music with the windows down- whatever it is that makes you feel good. You fuel a life with whatever makes you feel alive.
So, it may not have been my first choice, and it may not have the perfect ring to it that I was searching for.
But it’ll do!
For now, anyway.
