01/03: Thankful Thursday

January 3, 2013 | Thankful Thursday | 21 Comments

Good morning, loves! I hope everyone’s having a great week so far!

I’m definitely enjoying being on holidays. A lot of relaxing is taking place – so lovely! I am definitely thankful that today is a growth (a.k.a. rest) day because yesterday I had my best back workout yet and my body needs to recover now!

Here are some other things that I am thankful for this week:

Friday, December 28 – Being back in London and training with my personal trainer for the first time in over a week! We had a great back workout! It was exactly what I needed :) I felt like I came back with more strength because I didn’t go as heavy with my weights while I was home for the holidays because I didn’t have a spotter.

Saturday, December 29 – Being able to write a blog post! My blog was having technical issues on Friday, but everything was fixed by Saturday. So, High Five Friday #46 was delayed, but I was still very thankful to be able to celebrate everyone’s achievements! :)

Sunday, December 30 – My beautiful friend (inside and out), Caitlin! She is truly a gem and I always glow with happiness when she tags me in pictures of her seafood meals! :)

Monday, December 31 – Spending New Years Eve with my boyfriend. I am so happy I chose to come back to London for New Years Eve. Although we didn’t go out and attend a big celebration, we had our own perfect celebration at home :) Nothing beats a night of The Big Bang Theory! ;)

Tuesday, January 1 – Going for a morning walk with my favourite Husky <3

Wednesday, January 2 – Meeting a new friend! Recently, I was introduced to a wonderful new person who I know is going to have a huge impact on my life. Her name is Emily Fowler and she is an OPA National Level Figure Athlete and one of the sweetest people I know! I am so proud and thankful to say that she is my new friend :)

Thursday, January 3 – a nice long chat on the phone with my Mama :)

I hope you all enjoyed this week’s edition of Thankful Thursday! Now it’s your turn! What are you thankful for?

    It sounds like you have quite a bit to be thankful for! That’s awesome!

    I’m thankful to have had a break over the holidays. It was much needed, and I am glad I was able to enjoy Christmas and New Years with friends and family without the stress of work.

    I am thankful that last night’s dinner fiasco got turned around!

    I went home early with a plan to make dinner for my hubby…he’s an excellent cook and does most of our meals, but he had to work late so I found a recipe and wanted to make him bok choy/snow pea/shrimp stir fry. Well, the bok choy was going bad, so I tossed it. I totally ended up burning the oil and spices. I then ignorantly decided to carry on instead of starting over…which means the snow peas got coated in carcinogens from all the burned stuff. So my husband got home and told me we shouldn’t eat them cause they might make us sick. But then I didn’t wash the spoon before trying to at least make the shrimp…so those had to go, too!!!
    But he was really sweet and encouraging and thankfully we had a frozen pizza in the freezer. We covered it with salami and Jared made us kale smoothies so we could still get some veggies. Add in some Harry Potter on DVD and we ended up with a great night!

    Glad you had a nice NYE celebration – personally, I always enjoy the quiet ones the best! I am so excited for 2013 and it sounds like you are too. We can always make a year whatever we want it to be! And PS, I feel you on the back today. I had the most brutal welcome-back-after-weeks-of-eating-and-not-working-out hot yoga class yesterday with a lot of vinyasas, and my back is SORE today!

    I’m so happy you’re enjoying your growth day! (By the way, from now on, I’m totally replacing the word “rest” with “growth”:) ) You definitely have so much to be grateful for. Right now, I’m thankful for warm fuzzy socks and a roaring fire!

    I am thankful for posts like this that remind me to BE thankful. [If that makes sense. :)]

    I had a VERY lowkey New Year’s, and although I do somewhat wish I had a boy to snuggle with, I agree that sometimes the couch and the TV is all you need. [NYE is overrated anyway in my opinion…]
