Thankful Thursday: Discipline & Grape Nuts

It's thankful Thursday time! We all have so much to be thankful for and we love to take this opportunity just to write down each and everything that comes to mind. Please take this time to share with us what you're thankful for as well. If you have a blog expressing your thankfulness, please share the link! Without further ado, here's what we're thankful for:

Mandi's List:

I'm thankful for hard workouts. Do you ever have those days where you don't want to workout at all? Yesterday was one of those days. But I went anyways and got my butt today kicked in class, and I LOVED it. I am always so thankful for a hard workout. It always makes me feel like there was a point to actually going to the gym and taking the time.

I'm thankful for a disciplined hubby. Ronnie is so disciplined. He hasn't wavered on his exercise and eating plan these last couple is SO impressive and he looks fabulous. I am just so thankful that he is a man who is disciplined and takes such a great care of himself. I love him...A LOT!

I'm thankful for scented candles. They just smell so yummy, and make your house smell so yummy. I have started celebrating fall with some fall-ish candles and it is AWESOME. Our house smells like pie almost all day...who wouldn't be thankful for that?!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for nose spray (Fluticasone). I haven't always been consistent with the stuff, but when I am, I know it. I'm a "sniffer" by nature and the spray definitely helps keep everything dry in there and prevents *some* of the sniffing. I don't think it will ever go away however because at this point it's as much habit as anything :)

I'm thankful for Grape Nuts. I just recently had some Grape Nuts cereal and it really took me back to my childhood. When I was young I used to eat A LOT of cereal and Grape Nuts were one that I really enjoyed. Difference between then and now? Then, I used to pile on - literally pile on - a ton of sugar and drench it with whole fat milk. Now, no sugar and fat free milk. Same same but different.

I'm thankful for this blog and it's ability to keep family members in the loop. I'm not a big phone conversation guy so it's tough to keep my family abreast as to what is going on with the Sharpe clan. However, through this blog, many of my family members are able to see updated videos and pics of the family as well as insights into what's been happening lately. I'm especially thankful that my Dad takes the time to read this every morning. He probably knows better than anyone what's going on in our lives!!

So, what are you thankful for today?
