Today I am thankful for...

Monday, November 21, 2011

Thanksgiving is this week. Today I am thankful for my family. I have kids who, when they want to, are wonderful helpers to me! I have a husband who is living in a truck to support our family! I have a mom who will drop everything to help me find me time when I feel like I am about to break! And I have an uncle who has been babysitting for free when I need a night out of the house!

I love the fact that I have that support and a family that is willing to give the support! There could be no greater gift for a person than that!

Now with this in mind...the best way to repay everyone?


Its Monday and I plan to make some SHORT-TERM goals:

~Write in here at least once a week
~Exercise everyday...either The Firm, treadclimber, or something at the gym
~With that exercise, log in at least 10 miles towards my virtual walk to the hubby's work
~Drink my water everyday! (heck I feel better when I do!)
~Be thankful for what I have and express it outloud!

I am slowly getting the hang of things...finding the right workout for my lifestyle, getting the water and logging on here. I went through an awesome streak of logging on and tracking my water but than it disappeared. I was still drinking my water, just not tracking it. I am ready to get back to it, because I don't want to gain anything this holiday season. Which brings me to:

My LONG-TERM goal:

~I don't want to GAIN any weight this holiday season.

I consider the holiday season to begin on Thursday (11/24) and end on the day after new years (1/2). I figure I can make weekly short term goals to help me reach my one and only long term goal...for now. After I accomplish that, I will come up with another long term goal.

So, if I am going to do that...I better get off my butt and do a workout while the kids are still sleeping!!!

Everyone have a good week, good Thanksgiving, and keep moving!

    I love this time of year =] It really makes people stop and think about WHAT they have to be thankful for! Rather than maybe what they're lacking! I love reading these kind of blogs! =] Maybe I should type one out too =p

    I also think those are some GREAT goals! Both long AND short term! I can also really relate to what you're saying about the water! I've never actually tracked it here but on those days that it's 5pm and I've realized I've barely had any water to drink I get so made because I know THAT'S why I'm so tired! urgh! Something to be more aware of for sure!
