Suck it up, buttercup... or, my grateful post

Eating - good
workout - strength training, 100 crunches, Wii Dance 2, and "baby dance party"
FitBit - LOVING it!
I realize I've been doing a lot of bitchin' lately. I mean, that's partially what blogging is for - to vent feelings, find people who are like-minded and can understand where you are coming from. For today, I am going to talk about all the things I am grateful for. I am a seriously lucky lady.
1. My husband is the most supportive, kindest, most loving man I have ever known. I thank God everyday for him
2. My children are gorgeous, healthy, bright, sweet, funny, joyful, loving... I could go on and on. They are my whole world and my reason for life.
3. My big, beautiful family. My mother, who is my best friend, my brother, his amazing wife and gorgeous son, my dad and step-mother, my cousins, who are like siblings, all the sweet beautiful children, aunts, and extended family. I am so loved and surrounded my comfort in my family
4. My job - I have one! Enough said!
5. My health - I CAN exercise! I CAN be active! I am VERY healthy! SOO LUCKY!
6. My weight loss surgery - I truly don't think I would be here without my "tool".
7. My home
8. The ability for my husband and I to provide food for ourselves and our children, and the ability to pay bills.

I mean, really, I could go on and on. I have SO much. I know there are people out there struggling and my heart goes out to them.
Yes, I am lucky, and yes I am grateful.
Now, don't go thinkin' there isn't going to be any more bitchin' on this blog - 'cause Lord knows there will be - but, I will try to have more balance.
Peace and grateful-ness to you all


  1. Great post! They say be thankful for the little things, but you've got plenty of big wonderful things in your list too! Think I might try this next time I'm feeling down!

  2. Always good to sit and think about what your thankful for and realizing your life isn't so tough after all. I humble myself a lot when I am complaining about the little stupid things because I know there are many people in this world that have it way worse than myself!

  3. I did a challenge last fall to write down one thing every day that I was grateful for - it's such a helpful exercise for keeping focused on what's the most important on this journey!
