Mine has been great and it just got better! My husband received a final interview for an awesome job on Monday! Now, THAT'S something to be thankful for! :-)
I've been a bit preoccupied with training for my first half marathon, and I apologize because I haven't been posting or commenting on other blogs lately. For the first several weeks of training I was pumped up mentally and physically. I'm still pumped physically, and doing quite well, but mentally I'm psyching myself out. I haven't registered for the race yet and today I realized that I should because that way the only way I'll back out is if I'm injured. *fingers crossed* that doesn't happen! So, I may register by the end of this week...I think I need to do that in order to keep my head in the game.
Ok, since this isn't a "Fill 'er Up Friday" post, I'll get back on track here. I have so much to be thankful for this week!
First off, of course is the job opportunity that could be offered to my husband on Monday! I won't go all "poor me" on you, but we have struggled ya'll. We have had our share of struggle and have had to tell our children no to many things, so it's high time for things to change! We give God all the glory and thanks for providing for us and never allowing us to go without. We are so thankful that He has kept His hand upon our lives at all times, and we trust He will continue to do so. We have always felt blessed, even while unemployed and raising two children. We have always been able to pay our bills and provide food and shelter for our family, and for that, we are thankful.
I'm thankful for the opportunity to work with a personal trainer for the next couple months.
My trainer's name is George and he seems well educated in fitness and nutrition. He has been able to answer all of my questions. He is able to make modifications to some of the exercises that I just cannot do right now due to lack of upper body strength and core strength. (which is ok, because it gives me something to work towards) He's fun, encouraging and very respectful. I'm so thankful for this opportunity because I'm learning so much that I didn't know and I'm realizing where I need to strengthen in order to finish this half marathon strong.
I'm thankful for the rain and cooler weather! Training for this half would be much harder if it was hot out! Most of you know I suffer from exertion migraines due to over heating and dehydration. So the summer months are months where I either run before the sun comes up or run on a treadmill indoors with AC blasting in order to prevent one of those monsters from attacking. So I am definitely thankful for the cooler temps and the rain to keep the air clean and crisp for some awesome runs!
What are a couple things you are thankful for this week?
Any exciting news come your way?
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
