Giving Thanks

It is Thanksgiving and I am giving thanks...

Thanks for my wonderful husband, best friend and soul mate. You are my rock. "Heroes don't Disappoint." I love you.

Thanks to my family - you are my best friends AND my family and I am so fortunate to have you in my life. My love for you grows daily and knowing you are there to support me is motivation in itself!

Thanks to my friends - you guys make me smile, keep me on my toes, hold me accountable and give me a reason to stop training occasionally! Love you guys!

Thanks for my health - I am able to do what I do (figure wise) because I have my health and I am without ailment. I am so thankful to have full use of my physical self!

Great day today! Got up - did 45 HIIT training on the bike and then made breakfast for me and the hubby. Protein waffles and 1 piece of bacon for me - unspeakables for the hubby! :)

I am getting ready to make my healthy pumpkin chiffon pie recipe (I will post here later - gotta make sure I tweak it for health properly before I post it!) then a hard core shoulder workout and then off to our friends Amber and Doon for healthy turkey day.

Today during our downtime I took all of my Oxygen's and Muscle & Fitness Her's articles and put them in sheet protectors and in a binder separated into abs, upper body, legs and total body. I then took all of the pro athletes diets I have collected over the days from back in the day when Oxygen published them along with the training article and put those in a separate notebook. Finally, I took all the contest coverage from the back of Oxygen and put into another binder. It is Inspiration on the Bookshelf my friends! If I am struggling for what to do for a workout - BAM grab my binder. If I am dialing in my diet - BAM - grab a binder. And if I want to remind myself of my competition and my goals - BAM - grab a binder. :)

Thanks to all of you who check this out! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey chica! In all of my worries last night that I make sure NOT to burn anything, I totally forgot to check out your notebook! Well, I will try to come by and see it this weekend to get some ideas, if you're not too crazy busy trying to cook! You are looking great!
