Weekly Gratitude

This morning, I’m in one of those moods.  The weather is crappy, I fell down my front stairs before work (soaking me, of course), work sucks and my body is sore from the ringer I am currently putting it through trying to be beach/bikini/Bahamas ready.  I want to whine, cry, mope, pout.  In an attempt to keep my crummy attitude in check, I started thinking about what I’m grateful for… hence, my weekly gratitude.

  • Thank you to my mom and dad who came running the moment they heard me crying as I stumbled back into the house after falling down the front stairs this morning.  I was fine, minus a cut on my ankle, but they were ready to call an ambulance had I needed it.
  • Thank you to my Starbucks cup.  I know it’s an inanimate object but it holds 16 fluid ounces and it is much easier to drink water this way.  I’m pushing between 120-160 ounces of water per day and my awesome cup makes it so much easier.
  • Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of my new running endeavors.  You keep me strong and push me to keep going.  I hope to run with some of you someday; it would be an honor to wear a number next to you.
  • Thank you to fat-free hot chocolate.  You make a bad day better.
  • Thank you to my good friend MK for inviting me to the Boston Bloggers Brunch event this Sunday at the Biltmore Bar & Grill in Newton.  I’m so excited to meet new bloggers and taste the restaurant’s amazing menu!
  • Thank you to the Stonehill College Dance Team for loving me like one of their own.  I’m an SCDT member at heart.
  • Thank you to Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien, for putting out ANOTHER AMAZING COOKBOOK.  300 Under 300 might just be the best one yet!  There are so many recipes, I don’t even know where to begin.

And speaking of 300 Under 300… I may be embarking on a special Julie/Julia-esque project in the near future.  More things to be thankful for.
