Welcome to Gratitude Monday. Each Monday, stop by & comment on what you are grateful for & how it will impact you to live a healthier life going forward. How it impacts you does not have to be food or exercise related. It can be in any way, shape or form! If you just want to write a grateful comment & nothing else, that is fine too. If your comment is the same as another one, so be it. Everything goes here.
I really feel the way of that quote. I am not sure I am strong enough yet but it is definitely testing me!
I was thankful to have a meet with a friend Friday – always nice to sit, put the phone down & chat. The weather was beautiful too! First pic above was right after that meet.
Also had a fun get together with hubby’s family! It is hard to get together at times but fun when we do! BTW, hubby’s brother’s wife is doing great with her cancer treatment – over 2 years after a stage 4 diagnosis. We are so grateful for that! Hubby’s uncle’s wife is German so she served up this below. Not made for my tummy but I had the fruit & brought my own stuff – all the family is used to me so I am lucky!
Of course Scooter was trying to get some AND later in the eve he managed to get up on the kitchen table & eat the leftover “wieners” – I swear! I caught him at the very end – friggin hilarious! THEN he went after the sauerkraut!!!!
So we had to have some fun with him – The Flying Dachshund!
I have not been able to run outside on my weekend run for 2 weeks due to the flu since I got it on a Saturday morn & went thru the full week until Monday before I exercised again. I missed 2 outside weekend runs. THRILLED to get out yesterday! Wore my YMX top & Hoka OneOne running shoes of course! Fueled the run with Lindsay’s healthy bites (YUM!) & then coffee & Silver Hills Bakery bread with Wild Friends nut butter afterwards – well, after my trip to Sprouts.
ALWAYS thankful for cookies!!!!!! If you follow me on Instagram or FB, you saw the 2 pics below. In the first pic, I had that cookie before we got caught in southern CA traffic so I stayed happy PLUS I was not driving!
Here is cookie number 2 on Sunday! I think you can see in my eyes how happy I am – a molasses cookie & coffee!
How was your week & weekend? What are you thankful for today?
