Happy Thanksgiving! This year we’re not just munching on delicious Thanksgiving Day foods, we’re also really focusing on what today is actually all about: Giving thanks! Below are three things that each of the Fit Bottomed Girls are thankful for, in addition to the one big thing that we are grateful for each and every day—having great readers like YOU!
FBG Erin Gives Thanks for…
My family! I’m so happy that my beautiful daughter arrived safe and healthy, even if she was in a big hurry to get here a month early! She is the light of our lives and more fun by the day. Also, my husband, who has turned into an amazing dad and who is never fazed by a dirty diaper. And I’m thankful for my little pug; she keeps my feet warm at night even if she drives me bonkers by day.
My body! I never fully appreciated it until having a baby, but I’m much less critical of myself now that I’ve seen what it can do. Who cares if my abs aren’t perfect? I brought a human into the world!
The library! It may sound funny, but I now live just blocks from the library, which makes having a book on hand much more convenient. I may have to renew books several times before I get through them, but reading helps me carve out some “me time” before bed.
FBG Jenn Gives Thanks for…
Doing what I love! In this challenging economy, I feel so blessed that I am truly doing what I love and going after my passion. There is no greater gift in life.
My support system! From my husband to my parents to my closest friends (FBGs Erin and Tish, what, what!) to even my dog who cracks me up every day, I am so darn blessed to have such amazing people in my life.
Weight-loss challenge contestants! It has been nothing short of awesome to get to know these ladies and watch them grow and change over the last few weeks. Talk about inspiring.
FBG Tish Gives Thanks for…
My fam-bam and friends! I’m so very thankful for my family, guy and friends for keeping me on my toes and filling my days with oodles of entertainment. They make the world go round.
The Fit Bottomed Girls! The FBGs have pushed me this year. In the past, my laziness, doubt and boredom would have been the end of my gym days, but the FBGs have introduced me to a whole other realm of fitness fun.
Passion! Being able to daydream, imagine, question and create has kept me (and I presume my living-mate) laughing into the wee hours of the night. I’ve learned that holding on to one’s childlike curiosities is good for the soul. It keeps the bitters away. That I know for sure!
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? —The FBGs
