Thankful Thursday [On Weekends, Workouts and Wine]

Look at that alliteration!

Happy Thursday everyone! Guess what?  It’s already my weekend because I have tomorrow off from work! Yippee!  So tonight I am writing from the Farmer’s couch in Wisconsin.    To start off the weekend right I am doing a little Thankful Thursday.

I’m thankful for my long weekend.  Sometimes a mental health day is just what the doctor ordered.  And I have some vacation time so I thought I might as well use it up.  The long weekend also means I get to spend some time in Wisconsin with the Farmer.  Can you believe that this is the first time I have been up here to visit him?  He’s lived here since about September!  We’ve got some major exploring to do!

I’m thankful for strength training.  Holy cow, I hoisted some weights yesterday and I am so sore.  Owie.  It hurts but it hurts so good.  I told the Farmer tonight that I am going to get really strong and then beat him up.  Wow, I am such a great girlfriend.  I really want to get back into strength training but I tend to do it once and then not do it again for 2 weeks.  Not a great training plan.  I’m working on it.

I’m thankful for TJ’s cheap-o wine.  Not many semi-good bottles of wine cost only $3.  Three buck chuck is changing lives.  I opened a bottle last week and decided to finish it last night.  Turns out the 2.5 glasses of wine is enough to get me quite tipsy these days.  I ended up staying up way too late last night watching the Princess Bride.  Getting up this morning for work was a little rough but totally worth it in my book. 

I’m thankful for bike rides in February.  The weather was so great this past weekend I took my bike out for a hilly 13 mile ride.  My hands were a little chilly but the rest of me was warm and sweaty.  It’s been so long since I was able to go for a ride outside so it was exhilarating.  I even went flying down this huge hill and it was awesome.  Sometimes I wish Chicago was hilly but you better believe I cursed that hill up and down as I was riding back up it.

I’m thankful for friends.

I’m thankful for sleepy time.

Good night!
