I am thankful for the roof over my head. I am thankful that I have a home to come to every night and a warm bed to snuggle into.
I am thankful for my health insurance. I know this one may sound a bit silly, but it is truly a blessing to be able to go to the doctor whenever I need to. Today I was at the eye doctor for a maintenance visit and I was thinking about all the people who can’t afford to go to the eye doctor to get glasses, who can’t go to the dentist for cavities, and who can’t go to the doctor for a cold. I am definitely lucky I am able to do all of those things.
Lately I have been finding myself needing a bit of inspiration. I feel that I need to focus on myself and my relationships a bit more, so I started reading The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman.
This week Barrett and I have really honed in on our fitness and nutrition. The holidays have really gotten us off track but we are ready to conquer! We started our superfood shakes again and have begun P90X3.
This weekend I have been binging on Greys Anatomy and I am totally not ashamed of it. It’s only the second time I’ve ever binge watched it!
Down here in sunny old Florida we are finally getting some cool air and I am greatful for that because it was getting way too muggy. I have had my windows open all weekend and I am loving it! My animals love it too. How do I know? Every time I turn around their heads are smashed against the screen sniffing the air.
Have a wonderful week everyone!
Starting a new healthy lifestyle for the New Year? Well then you will definitely enjoy this salt free fajita seasoning. Salt is something I really try to avoid as much as possible, but it’s hard with all of the pre-packaged seasonings and processed foods.
This recipe not only makes delicious fajitas and tacos (Yes I use it for ground beef also and it’s awesome!) but it is also super easy to make and extremely cost effective. I just use an old spice container to store the seasoning or you can store it in a tupperware.
1 TBS Chili Powder
1 TSP Cumin
1/4 TSP Cayenne Pepper
1/4 TSP Garlic Powder
1 TSP Black Pepper
1. Mix together in a bowl
2. Store in a sealed container
**This recipe is easily multiplied**
I feel that we often forget to be thankful for the small things that we are blessed to have in our life. We run out of gas, we get the wrong milk, our bananas go bad before we get to them, and so on. The little frustrations in life often get in the way of our being thankful for the small and large blessings in our life. In lieu of the new year, I want to remember to be thankful each and every day. I am starting a series called 365 Days of Being Thankful. Every day this year, starting January 1, I will post something I am thankful for, whether it big or whether it small. Follow along and even join with the hashtag #365daysofbeingthankful.
