I Am Blessed Today

Friday, November 08, 2013

Yesterday was wonderful. I love my life just as it is! I have a great family, I get to bike whenever I want. Walk at the park. Cuddle my cats. I have a great group of friends that really support and encourage me. It can't get much better.

I've been trying to increase my exercise routines. Adding in weights. Added pushups (I'm up to 30 now). My arms are so flabby so I really need to work on them. I also started running in the evening. Just around my yard so far and it is working out well. I may venture out further this weekend. Down to the corner, maybe even around the corner a wee bit. Don't want to overdue and set myself back. My DD has been planning out our dinners. She finds new recipes for us to try out. Sometimes there is even leftovers for DH when he gets home (LOL)! She reminds me of what I've eaten so I can log it in the evening.

I am very grateful today for everything in my life. I read some blogs on here and I feel truly blessed with the turn in my life since starting SparkPeople. I have received so much encouragement and it has really helped push me in the right direction. I use my FitBit every day and try to increase my steps. I have a friend from Australia on FB who really keeps me motivated. We have a very friendly competition and it makes it all fun. And that, to me, is why I have a much more positive outlook and am having more success this time around. Thank you all.

    Sparkpeople is making a HUGE difference for me too. Not fast, but I'm working towards my goals and SP friends like you help A LOT!

    I loved reading this blog! It reminded me to count my own blessings for I am truly blessed. We all have challenges for sure but we all have blessings also. Thank you so much for that reminder!

    I am certainly human and can truly smile when I read this blog of yours. I am very happy for you that things are turning around, you are on program, and things are going your way.

    And, then there is the other side of the coin, which actually has MORE blessings than this one: when things are crap, people bad-mouth you perhaps, family members are not so helpful, and circumstances are not going your way. Does this make your day un-blessed?

    The moral here is: a blessing to be a blessing is a state of mind and NOT dependent upon people, places, events.

    YOU are the blessing! No matter what. Remember this my friend.
