Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I am sitting here on this quiet Thanksgiving morning with a heart full of gratitude. I’m grateful for the personal growth over the past several years, none of it possible without the unconditional love and support of my family and friends. My husband and children are my foundation.

I continue to be grateful for my health & fitness journey that started with Weight Watchers in 2015. I reflect on my first Thanksgiving when I was only 2 weeks in with WW, I poured over WW recipes and cooked in that manner. I continue to enjoy this lifestyle.

I am grateful for my health that allows me to continue to challenge my body physically. I absolutely love my walks and my Isokinetix (strength & cardio) classes. I continue to listen to my body, even if it’s difficult to do. I am currently recovering from a pulled muscle in my back and I’ve missed Iso all week. It’s SO hard to hold back, but if I don’t then I’ll onky hurt myself more and be out even longer!!! Patience Lisa, patience.

I am grateful for my birth parents saying yes to life and adoption. This one decision changed the course of my life and blessed my parents immensely. Thank you!

I am grateful for my newfound relationship with God. He’s always been there, but it all changes that Saturday afternoon of September 9, 2017 in my beloved mother in laws Church. My loving and merciful God has shown me so much. I must remember in times of doubt, to have faith & trust in Him.

Without my sobriety, none of this would be possible. If it loses my priority, then I risk losing everything I have today – a strong marriage, loving family, 2 amazing kids and a grandchild, and friends who love and trust me. Nothing is worth risking this over.

Family!!! I’m looking forward to spending the day with them. It will be low key and quiet for most of the day, but filled with love and joy.

Wishing all of you a day filled with gratitude, peace & joy ❤️
