Good Morning Everyone! Before I get into another “Thankful Thursday”, I have another smoothie recipe to share with y’all. Yes I realize I have a new creation every other day, but girls & guys.. this one is good & the perfect post-workout drink
Blueberry & Mango Smoothie
- 1 cup frozen Blueberries
- 1 Zico Mango Coconut Water
- Vanilla Yogurt
- Lots of ice
It’s no where near as creamy as the others I drink for breakfast, but the taste is unbelievable. As corny as this may sound… It kinda made me feel like I was on a tropical island 🙂 The only change I would make is to add a banana to the mix as well.
Well now that we got that out of the way, time for another week of “What I’m Thankful for”.
I’m thankful for Roxy… she has been the perfect companion while Joshua’s working. We take walks, and play with her toys every day. When she first got here she was completely jet-lagged, an lacked any energy. I’m happy to report that she’s regained all her energy, and now wants to play 24/7. Although lately, days have been a wee bit unpleasant because she’ll cry until Joshua’s home from work. Yup, she’s definitely a daddy’s girl. ((if you can’t tell from the pictures, she hates having them taken)).
I’m thankful for my health. Even though I may be lacking my period for un-answered reasons @ the moment, I’m very thankful for what my body can do on a daily basis. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in your everyday life and not realize how truly lucky you are. I can run, where other’s live in a wheel chair, I can talk, where others can only do sign language, I can hear, where others aren’t able too. Yes I may of whined about the stress this period issue has been causing, but thinking about how fortunate I am in other ways really does change my attitude.
I’m thankful for my daily runs. I’ve been having the best week of runs. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & today I’ve run 9 miles. They’ve all felt amazing. No pain, or any soreness. Yes I may of put in quite a bit of miles, but they make me feel good both physically and mentally. These runs have made me realize that the Marathon I signed up for in March is possible, and I’ll be able to overcome any fear I may have.
Okay y’all, now I have a question for you. I love posts on Thursdays because I’m able to share what I’m thankful for. I believe just taking a day to think about the good in your life is very important. If I set up a “Thankful Thursday” link, how many of y’all would link up & participate?
