This was a short work week for me, yet it felt like it somehow managed to squeeze in an extra day of work. It did not feel short, but it was not bad. I didn’t blow up anything or set anything on fire. I call this a good week of science. I am thankful for this.

I have been eating crazy clean and healthy meals lately. It’s not because I’m on any kind of special cleansing diet. It’s because I’ve wanted to eat this way. In fact, if I didn’t insist on Wednesday pizza night, I’d be eating a mostly vegan diet. The skills I acquired over the weekend have made things even better and I’ve been incorporating new flavors and oils into my dinners that have made me ecstatically happy. I feel good and satisfied. It makes me want to pat myself on the back and say “Good job, Cindy.” I am thankful for my food. This also marks week two of getting onto my yoga mat every day. I finally gave up the idea of doing my practice when I got home from work. I am a morning person. My day starts at 5:20 AM and by 5:20 PM, I’m done. So I rearranged some things. My day still starts at 5:20, but now my morning includes an hour of yoga and twenty minutes of meditation. I get to work an hour later than I used to but now I’m showing up when everybody else is. Normal times. The change has been really good and something to be very thankful for.

My food choices have fulled the need for clean. It’s inspired me to tackle the garage. It’s time to take glass and cardboard to recycling. And I think if tidy up the garage I just may be able to fit my car in there. I’ll need to take some measurements and this may be a case of wishful thinking, but it sure would be nice to have my car inside. Because I don’t know what it’s like in your neck of the woods, but here it’s COLD. I mean crazy stupid cold. My car has a safety feature that does not allow me to start my car and lock it. To warm up my car, I have to sit in it and it’s like sitting in my refrigerator. This does not create healthy feelings within me and in fact makes me very grumbly. Not a good way to start a day. So I’m thankful that I have the time and resources this weekend to make an attempt to do something about it.

It’s a good week to be thankful. I’m thankful for kind words. I am thankful for the moments this week that have made me laugh out loud. And as always, I am thankful for you. Here’s to a productive weekend and a super Thankful Friday.
