Thankful Things Thursday

I hope everyone has had a great week. I know I have been extra busy this week. We are in the process of possibly buying a new house, and as most of you know, they make you jump through hoops! Its ridiculous! Anyways I thought I would bring you another THANKFUL THINGS THURSDAY, here it goes...
1. I am THANKFUL that I decided to give the Paleo diet a try. I hate calling it a diet, it has been more of a lifestyle change. I finished my 40 day 100%Paleo challenge last week and started introducing things like cheese and rice back in. BAD IDEA! LOL! I learned my lesson trust me, I have felt like total crap this week. My energy level is low, I feel bloated. Now I am not downing rice eaters or cheese lovers, but as much as I missed them during the challenge, they are definitely not for me anymore. So as of yesterday I am back pretty much 100% Paleo. It works for me:)

2. I am THANKFUL that Katie has started a new company called BAMRbands and makes these super cute non slip hair bands. Yeah I have one of those weird flat heads, so NOTHING stays. However the BAMR passed the slip test. It made it through CrossFit and speed work without slipping. This one has really cute owls on it and my daughter wont leave it alone!

3. I am THANKFUL that Maxwell Health has come with this great plan to reward people for their good health. Yep that's right. It simple you put in the workouts and they reward you. Check them out at Maxwell Health. I will have a full review up on Monday. You will not want to miss it, trust me!
4. I am THANKFUL that I am able to run fun races with my fellow Gulf Coast Bloggers Heather, Mindy, Gina, Jennifer, HollyShannon, and Stefanie. We will be transforming into Zombies for the Zombie Run In Gulfport MS on Saturday. If your going to be there, let us know. We would love to meet you.
5. I am THANKFUL that I live close to the beach so that I can run AMAZING races right on the beach. Sunday I will be running the awesome Gulf Coast Half Marathon on Pensacola Beach. Its going to be a gorgeous day and I cannot wait to run it. Again if you are going to be there come say hey:)
Your turn, what are you THANKFUL for today?



  1. That's great that paleo really worked for you. I mean hey - if it's not broke don't fix it and even though you get -2 minutes of savoring that cheese/rice, its not worth it in the long run if it makes you feel bad! I have a little round marble head and it's really difficult to get bands to stay on my head too. My BAMRband stays :)
