be thankful :)



One thing I have really been thinking about lately is how sometimes I tend to look at the negative in things and how I really want to stop doing this! It gets so easy for me to think about how many things in my life have not gone as I planned, yet in the end I have to constantly remember that everything happens for a reason.

Sure I never thought I was going to get an eating disorder and isolate myself away, yet it happened and it made me realize how strong I really am! Every day I am constantly battling those negative voices, yet all it takes is one moment to center myself and realize how much I have in my life to be thankful for!

I have a wonderful family, supportive friends, I was able to get a college education at a top university, I have a fantastic job in the field I want to pursue, I laugh every single day, I am in good health despite how much I put my body through, I have a roof over my head and food to eat, and there is just so much good in my life that I often take fore granted. So, today and this weekend and hopefully in any tough situations I hope to remember how much I have to be thankful for and use that as guidance to push me through life!

Anyways, to other topics beginning with my breakfast this morning…week 2 friday breakfast

Sun butter & berry overnight oats. All I can say is I love this breakfast, but my challenge for next week is to switch things up a little!!

I also completed spin class this morning at the gym! My nutritionist recommended I try some different classes and activities so on a whim I ended up doing spin and totally was reminded of how much I love it! I used to do it all the time in college, but since moving home it had sort of phased out. However, I think now I am going to try and make the Friday morning class when I can because the instructor was awesome and it was nice to add a new workout into the rotation!!

Lunch today is not pictured, but was a roasted veggie pizza! I went out to lunch today and as soon as I read that this pizza was topped with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, peppers, onions, and tons of other veggies I was hooked! It satisfied my pizza craving and was meat free (since Fridays in Lent I can’t eat meat) and left me happy, full, and ready for the weekend!

Anyways I will be back Monday with my weekend recap so get ready for that and enjoy your weekends as well!!

  1. congrats on pushing yourself in a positive direction! 🙂 i too have dealt with similar life experiences and i found that doing yoga has quieted my mind and helped me keep an uplifted attitude. 🙂

    • thanks so much! staying positive can be so hard when it seems like life keeps throwin’ ya curve balls haha but attitude is definitely everything! and good advice about yoga! i feel like it could definitely be something i start working into my weekly rotation! i was actually just talking with my sister this morning about starting to do a class one night a week because our gym offers an 8 pm class that i feel like could be an awesome way to end the day! thanks for taking the time to read my blog and glad to know there are others out there who have gone through similar things that i have 🙂
