10 Things I’m Thankful For



My pal Steph of Fit Mom in Training is posting a list of 10 things for 10 days, so I thought I’d follow along because this is a great way for us all to get to know more about each other.

Today I’m starting off with 10 Things I’m Thankful For:

  1. My body – it’s endured years of my training and running abuse, powering me through several full and half marathons, two triathlons and birthed and nourished three wonderful little girls:

    Brooke, Amber and Sierra (yes Amber was less than impressed with having her picture taken)

  2. My family – I’m thankful for the love and support they give me in all of my endeavours, no matter how insane they seem (like my desire to do a 1/2 IronMan distance Triathlon).
  3. My career – I love my employer and my job.  As much as I’m enjoying maternity leave, I also cant wait to return to work in 4 months from now. No JOKE!
  4. My iPhone 4 – Without it I’m lost! I use it to budget, track my running, communicate with friends and family, take pictures of the kids, plan our lives and get fit!
  5. My DVR – Without it I’d never get to see my favourite shows: Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, Oprah, Glee and Biggest Loser.  (What shows do YOU watch?)
  6. My jogging stroller/bicycle trailer – it’s a HUGE sanity saver! I push or pull my youngest kids all over town in it while my oldest cycles along beside me:

    LOVE this!!

  7. Where I live – I may be a bit biased, but I think Canada is the greatest country in the world to live in. (Though I could do without the snow).
  8. Crayola – their products keep my oldest daughters busy for HOURS!

    Sierra gluing "junk food"

  9. Chocolate Milk – it’s my FAVOURITE post-run, post-workout recovery drink (what’s yours?).
  10. YOU! My loyal readers – knowing that you support me keeps me motivated to exercise, workout, run and write – I love YOU!!

Now its your turn….  What 10 things are YOU thankful for? Write up your list and share it with us by linking up on Steph’s blog!

    Which jogging stroller do you have? I’m on the lookout for a good double jogger to use next spring.

    Love Amber’s expression…hilarious!

    Thanks for playing along 🙂

    What a great list! My favorite post workout snack is cantaloupe. Something about it just makes it all worth it. It’s as if I run just so I can indulge in the treat 🙂
