Well One good thing about the upcoming Labor Day holiday for our family is a 3 day weekend in store!
My dad and step mom are coming in from New Jersey and will be spending the weekend with us! We're also going to Justin's aunt and uncle's house for a cookout while his cousins are here from Washington D.C. and Ohio. We are very much looking forward to a weekend of family time!
This means yummy food, lots of hugs and LOTS of laughs! Don't worry, I'll be sure to write about it and share with you all next week!
***On another note, I took yesterday off with the work out routine. I was SO SORE from the last 3 days, but in a good way. A friend of mine from elementary school (yes, WAY long ago), Kayla who writes at Tiny Inklings, recommended to me a home work out called Body Rock TV. I did this for 25 minutes on Tuesday and boy did I feel the burn! It's a blog website with a bunch of physical trainers from different countries that post videos on YouTube of their high intense workout routines. I am really starting to like working out because it makes me feel mentally great! Physically...not so much yet but I know that part is right around the corner! :) Today Justin and I start the gym! I'm lucky he's so supportive of me and is joining me on my journey to get fit and be healthy! I've been eating Greek vanilla yogurt in the morning with granola, a salad for lunch and a balanced dinner. Almonds or a fruit or some veggies for a snack. I've also been remembering to drink more water as much as possible.
ALSO on another note...food tastes SO much better now that I've quit smoking! Justin and I both downloaded an app onto our phones that shows us how many cigarettes we have NOT smoked, how much money we have saved from not smoking and what processes our body is doing to self heal right now. It's amazing! I know in my heart we should've done this a long time ago. I should've never started back up again after Annaliese was born, but I am happy that today I can say I'm smoke free!
So today for Sarah's link up, at the Little White Whale One Good Thing Thursday, I bring to you a few good things because I can't just pin point one today. Every day is a good day because I woke up. Head over to Sarah's blog and link up One Good Thing in your life today.
Count your blessings and give a friend a call today.
Have a great Labor Day weekend!
