Hello divas and Happy Turkey Day! One of my favorite holidays has finally arrived and I hope that you have fabulous plans for the day. I know I do. Though both of my family meals are not till later today, I am spending the morning watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with the hubby and the cats and dog.
The thing I like about Thanksgiving the most is that it is a time to reflect about the blessings in your life. There are so many in the world who do not have as much as we have and it is important to have gratitude for that which we do have. So I thought that this Thanksgiving, I would share 5 things that I am thankful for.
Family and Friends. The thing I am most grateful for is my family and friends. Without them, I couldn’t do all that I do. They have been supportive of me through all my schooling, my journey to be healthy and fit and my entrance into the blogging world. I know that anytime I need advice or tough love, they are there to give it. And when I mess up, they are there to say I told you so before helping figure out how to fix the issue.
Fur Babies. My hubby and I do not have kids (yet) but we do have 3 “fur babies.” My 2 cats and 9 lb. chihuahua mix who thinks she is human are a constant source of laughter, fun and cuddles.
Running. I am thankful for running. If you told me 2 years ago that I would be running half marathons, I would tell you that you were crazy. But since then, I have run 10 of them and have seen some amazing sites in the process. It has allowed me to lower my blood pressure, get healthy (though it is still a work in progress), relieve stress and travel to some super fun places. I have fallen in love with the sport.
This Blog. I am also grateful for this blog. It has allowed me to meet so many new and interesting people from all over. It has also served as motivation to continue on my health and fitness journey.
My Health. Lastly, this past week aside, I am thankful for my health. I may not be the skinniest person according to the dreaded BMI, but I have come to learn that there is more to being healthy than being skinny. I feel great, eat pretty good, I am able to do the things I love (like run or Shaun T. workouts) and am happy in my skin. And I am happy that I survived this racing season with no injuries. That’s always a plus.
