Thankful Thursday

My Job [Although most days I would rather be 'retired', I have to say, I have a pretty great jobs with lots of amazing perks. For example, this past Monday I went up to Disneyland with my boss' wife and three kids (their 3 year old daughter and 2 nieces visiting from Israel) instead of going to the office. And a few months ago we got some money towards our Hawaiian vacation. Don't get me wrong, I would love be a stay-at-home wife, but having two incomes and a great employer is awesome as well.]

My Bicycle [My 'trainer' mentioned something a couple weeks ago that I had never really thought of before. He asked me what my goal time was for my half marathon. I told him 2.5 hours. He then asked me if I have ever worked out that long before. I told him no (of course not, right?!). He suggested that Ryan and I start biking on the weekends together for that long (we started at 1.5 hours and every weekend are adding an extra .25 hours) so that my body gets used to going for that long and then when I switch from biking to running that long my body will just adjust the muscles that it uses, but it won't be as big of a shock as going from working out for maybe 60 minutes to 150 minutes.]

Rainbow Sherbet [It is just so refreshing and yummy. Ryan will try and talk me into going to the grocery store and getting ice cream probably once a week. Normally I can hold him off for a week or two. But when we end up going and looking at all the choices, 99% of the time I end up with my staple :) ]
