Hi all! If you have visitied my blog much you know how grateful I am for the things I have in my life and my gratitude increases on holidays or during special events....today is my 35th birthday (WHOA) and I want to share with all of you some (as I am sure I will forget some) of the things I am grateful for and have been during my 35 years. :)
I am grateful for...
....my husband - my soul mate, the love of my life, my best friend, my all. I found him after 30 years but have never been happier.
....my family - I have the BEST family - my mom, my dad, my sisters, my brother, my aunts and uncles. And the BEST family in-law - I am so blessed to have the best in-laws in the world - funny, loving, unconditional.
....my friends - Leanne, Amber, Angie, Maya and more - and my blog friends you guys are so awesome. Without you I wouldn't have the support I have to acheive my dreams.
....my health. Need I say more? :)
....my job - I do something I love with people I love and am well compensated for it.
...achieiving a few of my lifetime goals - competing in a figure compeition and placing first.
...having the resouces to travel.
...loving LIFE. Life is wonderful and I love it.
Anyhoo, the main point here is that if you live in a house with running water and electricity and are healthy enough to exercise every day and can eat healthy food - you are in the minority for people in this world. So be grateful for everything you have...we are all so fortunate.
So, I had a great week.....and I am mean that in the overall sense. Got in some great workouts - ate pretty good except for yesterday (they brought me a birthday cake from Cold Stone and I was training someone all day and missed two meals :(). We are getting hit with hurricane Ike as a tropical storm tonight and tomorrow so it will be NASTY here. NASTY. Jody's triathlon is probably going to be cancelled.
I did my first workout of the day - plan on doing leg circuits later and then do some upper body circuits later as well.
23 days to Mexico! :)
P.S. Have an AWESOME weekend everyone!
P.P.S. I stole my friend Kelly's idea of having a bad ass fitness picture on every post (when she isn't posting a Jason Statham video clip :)) - love this!
