5 Days of Gratitude Giveaways: Day 2

If you missed yesterday’s giveaway, it’s still open!  Be sure to follow along on FacebookTwitter, or subscribe via email so you don’t miss a post!
Today I am grateful for a healthy body and the ability to exercise–to run, jump, and move! Our bodies are amazing, do incredible things, and I’m grateful to have a healthy one.  
I grew up playing a variety of sports, doing ballet, jazz and tap.  I played sports through high school and was fortunate to play volleyball in college. For the last seven years I’ve been an avid runner (or at least trying to be).  One thing I’ve always tried not to take for granted is the strength, health, and ability of my body that has allowed me to do these things.  
I love waking up at the crack of dawn {bundling up now that its freeeeezing!!} and going for a run, it’s the best way for me to start my day.  It’s  just as emotionally healthy for me as it is physically. And let’s be honest…there’s a lot of cookie consumption going on over here….I’ve got to work it off:)

    I like to run and do yoga for exercise. I think chasing my 3 year old and 17 month old twins counts for good exercise too! :)

    I’ve been doing Jillian Micheal’s 30 day shread at home and its amazing. 20 minutes a day and the hardest workout EVERRRRR. But I feel great afterwards!!

  3. says

    I love the gratitude for health! It’s so great to be thankful for a healthy body, not everyone is as fortunate! I am grateful for my health and ability to exercise too, and I would love to get some new Nike gear to make this a little easier. Thanks for the giveaway and the reminder to be thankful for all we have!

    I’m just getting into the exercise routine and have been using a treadmill that has different programs. Working daily on better habits…one day at a time!

    I don’t feel the same if I don’t start my day with a run. Don’t get me wrong I love sleeping in, but there is just something about getting out and moving in the morning that makes me feel so awake!

  6. says

    I run. we have a love, hate relationship. I just ran the St. George Utah marathon, so now that the hardcore training is over, we are on love status again!

    I have a couple exercise machines that I’m always on. I always feel better after working out! I’m very thankful for a healthy body too.

    I walk 4 to 5 miles every day, and do some work with the weight machine every other day. I enjoy the walking–the weights, not so much.

    I love doing a routine of jumping jacks, push ups, sit ups…in the morning with my 2 year old who thinks it is so fun to exercise together and is quite fun watching him try to do the same thing.
