Be Grateful Everyday.

9 more days until Thanksgiving. Can you believe it? Do you have your turkey and all the ingredients ready? I think I can already smell all of the yummy goodness.

Yesterday was full of positives and negatives. Positives being that I got in two Flywheel classes. BOOM! The negative; that whole work shindig. Just drama, drama, drama. Have I mentioned that I hate drama?! Well, now you know.

After my sweaty double Flywheel class last night, I went home to nourish my starving body and I began reflecting on the day. I said, “Tara, stop dwelling on the negatives. They will always be there; all you can do is either deal with it or change it.” Changing it may not be so easy….but it is something to work up too. That is why I am choosing both. I will deal with it and move forward with how I will change it.

This led me to thinking about all the things that I am thankful for. I find that I think more about this in November. Hmmm, I wonder why?! 😉

Since today is November 19th, I thought I’d share 19 things that I am thankful for. Plus, I didn’t have any other quarky number or pun. Feel free to skip over some if the post gets toooooo long.

I am thankful for…

1. My family. Duhh!IMG_2944


2. KasaIMG_2438[1]

3. My health.

4. My LEGS. I wouldn’t be able to run like I do without them.


5. The love and support that my family gives me.

6. Fitness and fitness!


7. The sun. It is a rare sight in Seattle during the winter, so I try to take advantage of it when it is shining.

8. Beer. Well, because it is tasty.IMG_3035

9. Beauty on the inside and outside.

10. My courage and drive to succeed.

11. My emotions, even when they come out at the wrong time. At least I can feel and express them easily.

12. Reese; even though he is 120 pound fur ball.


13. Flywheel. It brings me joy and the Flywheel family so supporting.

14. A roof over my head.

15. My wheels. Yes, it is materialistic, but getting to point A to point B would be much harder without it.

16. That stupid thing that I carry around everyday. The I phone.

17. My ability to go through the ED recovery process.

18. Football.


19. My Blogging Family!

XO, Tara

  1. Thanks for the little reminders to be thankful. I need to get in that frame of mind with this crazy icky weather. Now it’s going to be c-c-cold! So, I’ll say snow would make me happy right now.
