It’s been a long time since I did a Take Time Tuesday post and I thought that now would be the perfect time. Here are a few things I’m grateful for today!
We ended our weekend on the couch eating Chicken Tikka Marsala while watching the Golden Globes. (I used this recipe and it was awesome!) It was the perfect way to end the weekend and nice to have some downtime hanging with Rich.
Last night, I kicked off my week with back to back classes at the gym. I did sculpt class first and then my friend Denise met me for Zumba. It was my first Zumba class and I loved it! I think one key to my workout success lately has been variety. It’s kept things fun!
Over the weekend, I picked up a few new placemats and dishes from World Market to use in my recipe posts. I can’t wait to add some pizazz to my next recipe!
Per Sierra’s recommendation, I started reading The Magic and am really enjoying it. I loved The Secret, but I am loving the new book even more. The Secret focuses on a positive attitude and the law of attraction, while The Magic focuses on using gratitude to improve your quality of life. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know that I’m a huge believer in enjoying the small things in life and this book is a great reminder of things to do every day to be more grateful.
Finally, this weekend I found a new love for Larabars! I distinctly remember not liking them in college because they weren’t sweet enough for me. Things have definitely changed since then!
Today is day nine of the 100 Days of Real Food 10 Day Pledge for me. I’m happy to report that I’m no longer having any sugar cravings and the benefits are exactly the same as last time. My skin is the clearest it has ever been and as an added benefit, I need much less sleep than usual. Moving forward, I want to make clean eating a lifestyle with occasional splurges thrown in. I’m excited that I’ve finally found something that works for me!
Now, please do me a favor and take a few minutes to think of things you’re grateful for this week. I would love to hear about them and spread the gratefulness all around. So, let’s hear it!
