Alternating 5 minute walk with 1 minute jog for 30 minutes plus 3 sets of wall sits and 25 box/standing jumps for advanced**

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 in-laws! Am I the first person to ever make that statement? Quite possibly...ha! I have spent a lot of time with Ronnie's mom these last few days and I've really enjoyed it. She's a great mom and grandma.

I'm thankful for sleep. Mckenna has had a few really awful nights' sleep the last few nights and it has made me realize how much I love never know what you have until it's gone, right? 

I'm thankful for girl scout cookies, but my butt and thighs are not. I case you didn't know, it's that time of year again, so go indulge your taste buds and support the (girl scout) troops. MMM Thin Mints, how I love thee!

Ronnie's List:

I'm thankful for increased PFTs. Generally speaking, my lung function always gets worse after my first week in the Hole. There are probably a variety of factors that contribute to this, but less exercise and heavy antibiotics are probably the leading cause. I'm happy to report however that my FEV1 actually improved by 5% after week one. Sweet!

I'm thankful for an easy baby. Mckenna has been quite the champ during this stay in the Hole. She's been shuttled back and forth I'm sure more than she would like and I know that she knows that she's out of her element. Even given all that, she's still been the happy and smiley daughter that captured my heart almost 4 months ago.

I'm thankful for a do-it-all wife. When I'm in here, Mandi has to pick up even more of my slack. I'm not sure how she handles it all, but I do know that I'm very lucky, grateful and thankful to have her in my life. I love you honey.

So, what are you thankful for today?
