thursday-3 miles on TM
Yes, another 3 mile run on the good ol’ treadmill. I’m running a lot less and incorporating more strength/cross training these days. I hope you guys aren’t too bored of me because stay tuned I’ve got some fun new workouts coming your way! I didn’t forget about my hot yoga experience and how I was going to share with you my tips so be patient my friends=)
Yesterday was one of those really awesome days. I’ve been having a lot of those lately where I think to myself, ” if this is my life for the rest of forever I’m okay with that.” We all have hard days/weeks/months/years but I truly believe that it’s how we react in those situations that help us become who we want to be. I’m learning that life is so much more enjoyable if we make today happy and stop hoping for better tomorrows. If today is what forever is like for me, then I need to find happiness in that. I have a lot to be happy for, so it’s not hard to count my blessings but can be hard to remember to. For example, currently I’m writing my blog and J and Josh are right above me stomping their feet and chanting the Olympic Theme Song. I’m not sure what’s going on up there but I can be grateful my boys have so much fun together haha.
little sneak peak of our family photos my SIL Whit took. She’s amazing and I can’t wait to see more!
So that leads me to a random thankful post on a Friday:)
I’m thankful for the beautiful weather UT has been having. My mom goes on walks daily. After we got back from Singapore J kept saying, “Everyone needs a little fresh air mom, let’s go on a walk.” I knew he got that from my mom while she watched him and it’s so true. Fresh air does a body good.
Yesterday my mom took the grand kids on a hike
I’m thankful for family lunch dates. Yesterday we picked Josh up from work and ate at Zuppas and even got a giant chocolate cake that we all shared.
and yes I did get the biggest bowl of soup…it was delicious
I’m thankful for tender moments with J. There are times as a mother that I feel absolutely insane. Those moments where he comes and snuggles up to me and grabs my hand with those dimpled fingers melts my heart. I’m seriously going to cry when he has no ‘baby’ left on him.
I’m thankful for uplifting scriptures.
And of course I’m thankful for running. Everyone and their dog knows how I feel about that.
what are you thankful for today?
