Thankful Friday [On weather, adventurous boyfriends, and new challenges]

So I missed Thankful Thursday.  I was having one of those crappy, emotional days and writing about things I am thankful about was furthest from my mind.  BUT those are the kind of days when I most need to focus on the good things in my life  So instead I'm doing Thankful Friday.  And hopefully, it will kick me out of this funk soon.

I'm thankful for the warm weather.  Okay so today is markedly colder than earlier in the week, but the weather has been awesome.  I thoroughly enjoy not having to scrap any frost off my car windows in the morning and wearing a light jacket instead of my winter coat.  The coming weekend looks beautiful as well--temperatures are supposed to be in the high 50's/low 60's.  I can't wait for my long run on Saturday!

I'm thankful for a boyfriend who will eat my crazy foods.  Last weekend the Farmer visited and I made him try several of my new creations - those black bean burgers and sweet potato fries I already told you about and an oatmeal bake kinda like this one.  I"m glad he isn't a picky eater and will try anything once, especially since I make strange-to-him foods at times.  I should also be thankful for the fact that he doesn't get angry with me when I post things about him.

To be fair, it was a Friday in Lent, so he couldn't eat real hamburger anyways.  But, as you can see, his friends were slightly repulsed by the fact that he would even try a non-mean burger.  I thought this whole banter was quite comical.

I'm thankful for new challenges in workouts.  Best Body Bootcamp is rockin'.  It is nice to have a new challenge in the gym.  The extra motivation seems to be just what I needed to get back into the workout routine.  I better have some killer muscles by the end of this!

I'm thankful for phone calls.  I talked to a lot of people in the last week on the phone and it's just a bright spot in my day.

I'm thankful for peanut butter.  I may not be eating any chocolate but at least I can enjoy this stuff.
