Giving thanks

In the spirit of my northern hemisphere friends Thanksgiving tradition, today I am skipping the turkey and the pumpkin pie (EWWWWWWWWWWWWW!) and just giving thanks!, Michelle Bridges and my new lifestyle have given me a bazillion things to be thankful for ... let's see how I go!

  • I am thankful for my husband. His support is amazing. He knows $$ spent now are big $$ saved on chronic health care costs later. He watches miss e so I can train. He cooks dinner almost every night. He listens to me rant on endlessly about how awesome I am. And he has never critisized my weight - even at my heaviest. He just waited for me to be ready to change

  • I am thankful for Miss E. I am thankful living fit is now all she knows. I am thankful I have had the opportunity to become a mummy she can be proud of!

  • I am thankful for Mish! She had a vision - and it changed my life. It wasn't just diet and exercise. It was support. It was mindset lessons. It was creating a family.

  • I am thankful for my mum and dad. They rock. They love me - they support me - they cheer me on!

  • I am thankful for my blog readers! You guys are so cool! Even now an awesome comment makes my day!

  • I am thankful for my twitter family. Twitter means I am surrounded by people with the same goal who will love, support, encourage me and kick my butt. Love it

  • I am thankful for my gym. These guys get me.

  • I am thankful I can breathe. I really couldn't before

  • I am thankful my clothes fit. And I can sit without having to negotiate my belly.

  • I am thankful I can run. I can run just cause

  • I am thankful I can lift heavy things. I am thankful my bones are getting strong along with my muscles, my heart and my mind.

  • I am thankful for a pt who gets me. He knows I need to be challenged. That sessions have to be fun. He knows I need to feel like I can conquer the world. That he needed to show I could trust him so I could do crazy things

  • I am thankful for my Qld crew - fun events - awesome people! Releasing our inner awesome!

  • I am thankful that I can just say YES! Run? Sure! Bootcamp? I'm in! Crazy 0500hr pt? Yep!

  • I'm thankful my core is getting stronger. It has always been my week point. It is getting there

  • I am thankful for CoachRell and #rellsrunners. People who will support me - and know that any run is a good run as long as you are running

  • I am thankful for the big huge massive 12wbt events. Last time I got quite teary. 800 odd people training in the sun together ... and I am part of it.

  • I am thankful for lower blood pressure, better blood sugars ... better health

  • I am thankful for energy. I may train more but I am no where near as tired

  • I am thankful I am happy now

  • I am thankful for this newfound passion!

  • I am just thankful for my life. This is how I am meant to be.

  • I am thankful for joy!
