• Today I'm Grateful for (My day is over, but I can't end it without saying....)

    DebbieMo, Liesl, Patti, Legs and all of my BFL Buddies - Love you all Mwah!

    The awesome power of the mind (sometimes bad, but mostly good)

    The "relief" of letting one of my BFL responsibilities go and being okay with it....

    The feeling of "passion" slowly rising again

    Rain - my water tanks are filling again

    Deadlines - shake you up and make you make "the most of it".....

    Enjoy your Tuesday people - Hugs xxxxxxxxxxxx


  • Today I am grateful for:

    Crystal, whose friendship makes me act childish, in the good way. 

    The Red Sox beating the Yankees yesterday. 

    Having to move up all my weights this morning on LBWO. 

    Percocet.  I know I listed it yesterday too, but I didn't need to take it yesterday.  Today my mouth, ears and head hurt, so I'll be popping them like Tic Tacs. 

    Linked In.  I have gotten a lot of jobs by being one of the most 25 networked recruiters. 

    Clean Water.  It's so simple, but not available to all. 

    My Cousin Katie.  When I was sad and she had no way of knowing, I got a text message from her saying she missed me and wanted to see me soon. 

    The in by 9 and out by 5 dry cleaners near my work.  I have an interview tomorrow and not a clean suit was to be found in my closet.

    uplifting music

    having equipment downstairs so I can workout at home

    being able to "pay it forward" on this forum

  • Today I am grateful for:

    Jessica for no matter how hard we butt heads and hearts, we're friends always.

    A rest week, the body must rest in order to proceed full steam ahead.

    Spring time!!

    Willingness to admit that sometimes, I'm my own worst critic.

  • Today I am grateful for:

    The treadmil next to my bed (So I don't have to go to a gym on a tight budget/ time schedule

    The new container of protein I bought so I don't have to eat so much cottage cheese

    My husband, who ran out at midnight to get me heavier weights for this morning's work out

    My daughter who is my little cheer leader

    working in a class where I have access to a fridge and water fountain (and bathroom) anytime I need it, a few steps away!

    My BFL friends- always encouraging me and helping me with tough questions

    BFL. Because with out it, I would be sitting on the couch eating crap like I always have. Never changing.

  • Today I am thankful for:

    My ability to change my future, one day at a time.

    Being able and comfortable to NOT be in control in some areas of my life - kids especially.

    Letting go of the perfectionist in me slowly, but moving forward nonetheless.

    Letting go of trying to impress others.

    Friends that teach me its okay to laugh at myself, fall and get up again.

    Being a mom of 26, 22 and 19 year olds. Realizing that no matter the age difference, I can still be me - I dont have to be the lazy docile, sit in front of the tv and knit mom and that is a good thing.

    Being fit and energized.


  • I am thankful for...

    My relationship with God

    My beautiful, healthy, happy children

    Time spent with my Haley last night. Love one on one with my kiddos

    Great mornings with the little ones. There a few days where they don't fight. Today was one of them :-)

    My completed challenge packet going in the mail today :-D

    Keep the faith!

  • Today I am thankful for the fact

    That I have the knowledge and the willpower to change

    That I have the knowledge to help others

    That I know I now can make a difference

    That I have learned to accept my weaknesses as well as my strengths

    "I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today"

  • Today I am thankful for:

    My bike seat shocks

    My stubborness to move past pain in one area and work  on another.

    AussieDebs: for realizing she has accomplished what she was meant to do and can move forward


    My friends off the GB that are still posting and working through the change. Their names make me smile everytime I see them.

    New 'faces' on the coffee crew in the morning - so glad to be expanding the family - one VICTOR at a time. :)

  • Today I am grateful for:

    A moral compass.  It has served me in the big picture.

    Friends who share my values, which reinforces them.

    Waking up to meditation music.  Really.  If you use a buzzer then you need to reconsider. 

    Knowing that somehow I'll be okay.

    Feeling more engaged in the world around me.

    Good clean food


    Again, this thread for reminding me of all of the things I'm grateful for


    The realization that "I" am the only one holding me back.

  • Tonight I'm Grateful for:

    My job...where else can you make kids do 3 sets of planks and they ask, does this work the core, Coach? Yes, it does now do another! :)

    that I remembered to post to this thread

    my family who supports me

    being able to share my success with friends

    My BFL FRIENDS-you give me power

    A certain bird- for giving me something to do at night other than sleep


  • Today I am grateful for:

    My little brother coming through simultaneous major surgeries yesterday.

    The opportunity to help and support others with a lifestyle that works.

    The unexpected positive message, what a way to pay it forward!

    People that can help others without criticism.
