 I’m thankful for today. 

Each and everyday is a blessing and if we all could just embrace that the world might just be a happier place. 

First off – I’m thankful that the lord blessed me with 3 fantastic kids. They are my life. If you weren’t aware my youngest is a Type 1 Diabetic and everyday is a day of discovery with this disease. I’m thankful that I used to be a nurse and I can manage her care both as a mom and a caregiver. 

I’m thankful for my health, last year I was injury plagued with my foot and I didn’t run as much as I’d like. This year I’m focusing on getting all the help I can – super thankful for my massage/sports therapist! 

I turn 46 in a few days and don’t feel it , I owe this to my daily gym regime at GoodLife Fitness where each and everyday I run and lift and make my body stronger. I am definitely in better shape at 46 than I was at 26. 

My nutrition !!!! Thank you plants!!! I’m so very thankful for the earth to provide me with the nutrition I need. My focus is Clean protein, complex carbs and good fats! On this note – thank you to my Instant Pot which has become my new favorite kitchen gadget! I can cook 4 sweet potatoes in 15 min and I made whole grain brown rice in 21 minutes! Thank you!!!

Basically I’m at a point in my life now where my happiness comes from fitness, nutrition and my family. These things I’m thankful for and let’s all reflect on what we have in life.
