Yesterday, i went to the gym, as i try to do everyday since joining, and i got on the bike, 30 minutes...elliptical, 5 minutes...then the treadmill...i really had to push myself to do even 20 minutes...of course in my own defense, i have blisters on the back of both my feet, and it HURT!! lol. Later I would find out they were bleeding...nothing like going for blood...lol... anyways, i had to cheer myself on to get back on the bike to do 10 minutes more to make up for the 10 minutes i was short on the treadmill...and then it dawned on me...i get to do this because i can do it...last year i could of only done 30 on either or...not both...and forget the elliptical...uhg...i have come far from the girl i was last year...wohoo me :)
So that is #1 on my thankfulness list.
2 would be a God that watches over me and gave His Son to die for my sins.
3 would be the wonderful parents that he gave me
4 is the great children I have
5 definately would have to be my dear grandson
6 has to be the dear grandchild that will be born in July
and 7 is the wonderful and supporting friends that i have here on SP that cheer me on to victory :)
I could go on...i have a wonderful job, a roof over my head, a running car and food in my belly...air to breath and the ability to get up and go...to see...to hear...to feel... oh and we can't forget that 1 more pound that is gone gone gone...yep, i have a lot to be thankful for :)

Went to the gym today...did 5 min on stair master, 5 min on elliptical, 30 on treadmill and 30 on bike...along with 7 ST machines...i barely walked out of the gym...lol...is was more a crawl, limp kinda thing...but i did it...i really did it... last year at this time, i was lucky to do 30 min either treadmill or bike...but definitely not both and then some...was it hard...heck yes...i reasoned with myself, cheered for myself, yelled at myself...the whole way through... and it was worth it...although, i will have to say the best part was coming home and looking at the 15 steps i had to climb after all that...lol...

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. - Psalms 23:4
The one person who most blocks you from a full, happy,
and successful life is you. They are therefore wise who
make themselves an asset. We can be our own worst enemies
or best friends. We can be a source of trouble or a cure
for trouble. So if you feel empty, as many do, start by
getting free from yourself as a first stop to vibrant living.
