Hey Y’all! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. I was able to sit back and look at all of the things I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for my sometimes stressful job, because at this time last year I didn’t even have permanent job or health benefits. I am grateful, even though I had to work late on Wednesday because my boss gave me an assignment and told me to have it done on Wednesday or I would “finish it while eating turkey tomorrow.” I’m especially grateful for my miracle baby niece who amazed me when she came bursting into the world at 1.7 pounds and still makes me smile with cute little Thanksgiving Day morning E.T.-like pictures like this.
I’m thankful for my family and for the delicious meal we ate together on Thursday. We had Turkey, dressing, corn, sweet potatoes, greens, ham, macaroni and cheese, rolls, lemon and strawberry cakes, sweet potato pies and peach cobbler. I do believe there were some chittlins, but I didn’t get near those. Yuck!…
I’m thankful for all of my shop-aholic cousins and my Big Little sister who, helped me scope out the Black Friday ads on Thursday night.
I’m thankful even though the first Wal-Mart I went to sold out before I got there, that a different location still had my 32 inch Flat Screen TV on sale for $198!!!
I’m thankful for my little sister and my dog Nyah who braved the cold weather (it SNOWED) and walked with me in the park on Friday afternoon.
I’m thankful that I have workout out buddies to help me stay on track. I’m thankful that I worked out twice today! The training schedule said I should complete 4 miles today, so I walked 2 miles in Forest Park with my buddy Tee from Team in Training. This afternoon I was supposed to work out with a new work-out buddy, but she was a no-call no-show. So, I just went to the gym by myself and finished up the last 2 miles on the treadmill while reading a new book. It’s Marianne Williamson’s book that was recently featured on Oprah’s favorite things episode. I ordered it on Amazon.com. I’ll do a video book review like I did for “Skinny B!tch” when I finish it.
Last but not least, I’m thankful for YOU my “Fans” who read my blog and continue to support me on my personal journey from Fat to Fit to Fierce. Love Ya!
