Friday at work is always better, my boss wears jeans, when your boss is willing to wear jeans, you're in a good place.
My little brother is doing ok so far.
Body for Life for changing my life.
Some times your friends don't have to say a word, you just know they are there.
He is with me every step of the way, even when I forget that He is there.

figuring out how to use my external hard drive because my operating system crashed
the gorgeous blue jay outside my office window
a great sleep last night
the thunderstorm last night
my blackberry - my home laptop crashed so at least I can still email at night
that Champster patiently answers my questions about G-d. I don't really know Him so not sure I can ask Him myself.
Today, I am thankful for the Body-for-LIFE program and my ability to follow it successfully about 98% of the time.
I have been more than pleased with my results so far and it has exceeded my expectations. I have one month to go (starting Week 9 tomorrow morning) and I'm sure more great results are ahead.
I'm also grateful for the nice people I have met on this forum and GB that came before it.
Winners never quit, and quitters never win
DebbieMO: for being my kind of crazy and motivating me to be my best every day - EARLY!
My gazelle: it likes to play on free days too, just a little
Music: it lifts my spirits
Humor: I cant live without it
The end of week 5 - it has been fabulous in many ways
my daughters...they are a joy to coach and watch on the volleyball court.
My husband and son for holding down the fort while I was away...and the house is kinda clean! :)
I got to watch the sun rise in my rear view mirror while taking Lizzie to volleyball yesterday (yes, I was watching the road too!); and I got to watch the sun set while bringing Kelcee home tonight!
For being able to adhere to the BFL lifestyle all weekend.
For being able to share my BFL success with four of the volleyball parents!
For being HOME!
LEGS...who kept me "company" this weekend, YOU are a "treasure" :) HONK! :)
All of my BFL buddies, you all are SUPER! :)
I am grateful for this community.
"Body-for-Life" and Abbott for making the forum a reality.
Bill Phillips for writing the book that started it all for me 10 years ago.
There are two books I believe in, live by, and swear too - God's word the Bible, and Body-for-Life by Bill Phillips.
I am grateful I finally seriously started this program now at the age of 41, before officially having high blood pressure, and diabetes.
