Good Morning Everyone~
I had high hopes of going to the gym this am and doing an awesome workout....but sometimes the best laid plans just DON'T workout and that's ok!! Instead I am about to begin the days festivities of cleaning and cooking......
Sometimes I feel torn between pushing myself to get a workout in and still trying to enjoy the holiday! This year...I decided to just take a moment to BREATHE and actually try and enjoy the day. I find I secretly like to try and cram too many things into one day but then utimately end up feeling stressed and unable to be present in the moment! SOOO....here I am NOT going to the gym or running in the race I was thinking of doing and not feeling a tiny bit bad about it...ok maybe I am feeling a tiny bit bad about it!! But one or two days never set anyone totally off track!!
Anyway....today is a day of THANKS and I am going to take a little minute to relax, enjoy every minute of it and be THANKFUL:)
1. Sweet Potato and Black Bean Hash, 2. Roasted couscous salad with favas and grapes, 3. Pumpkin Spice Bread, 4. Rustic Bread and Eggplant Lasagna, 5. Liars Dice Zinfandel, 6. Pumpkin Pie, 7. Roasted Root Vegetables with Rosemary (large), 8. sauteed mushrooms, 9. Pasta with Arugala, Yellow Squash and Herbs
And I am going to enjoy LOTS of yummy food!
I like to say "I am about to get involved in a food festival" and NOT feel guilty about it~
Oh and you know i'll probably have just a little too much wine! Owell...it keeps things interesting with family:)
I am thankful for so many things in my life that I couldn't possibly list them all here! I truly feel blessed and thankful to simply be the person that I am...
We all have things that we would like to change about ourselves but overall I am happy with me:) And I am super thankful for that:)
It's a great life and remember we only get one go around so we better be thankful for every moment we get~
Hope you have a GREAT Thanksgiving and enjoy every bite you eat today! Most of all remember to be THANKFUL:)
