Burn the Bird! & Our Thanksgiving Spread

This morning we hit the YMCA for their “Burn the Bird!” event — a workout frenzy from 8 am -11 am. Truthfully, I slept through my alarm and we didn’t make it there until 9 am. We snagged weight machines as they became available to piece together a chest & back workout. It was crazy busy, but it was awesome to see so many people making a health a priority in their day! When the lone pair of StairMasters became available, we hopped on for 60 minutes at level 10 on the ‘Aerobic’ setting — 281 floors, baby! It was a doozy and a perfect start to our day.

We then spent the following 6 or so hours cooking. It might be a chore to some, but I love being in the kitchen with family (especially family that will do dishes!). One large dinner, 1.25 hours of walking, and a movie later, I am a tired girl!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! When I think of my life these days, all I can think of are things to be thankful for — family, health, a warm home, acceptance into nursing school, time to play. Life is good! I hope the same for you!

    • I think the pie was my favorite dish — I had some serious skeptics about the tofu, but when blended right in with the chocolate, you couldn’t even taste it! Thanks for stopping by — your blog looks great!
