Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink

Probably water…. I drink a TON of water. It is very rare to see me without a full water bottle 🙂

Facebook or Twitter

I’d have to agree with Katie and say Instagram!

Favorite Pattern

hmmm…. I haven’t really thought about my favorite pattern…. I know it probably isn’t considered a pattern but I like things with flowers on them!

What is your passion

I have many passions! I love helping others…. hence the whole nursing career 🙂 I also love cooking and trying new recipes. I recently rekindled my love for running and exercise. Lastly my friends, family, Scott and Maisy.

Lastly I do have to add…. and I know Katie will love this: They released the new BodyPump at Xperience this week and I took it tonight. I really loved it!!! It is SUPER intense. I really love the chest track. And OMG the lunges, shoulder and triceps tracks are intense. Let just be honest….. it was all intense.

LOVED IT

5. Workout Buddies

Right now my mom is my best workout buddy. We swim, run, bike, jump, and do yoga together!

I am always looking for new workout buddies so let me know if you need one, if you live in MN 🙂

6. Blends

Since I started this blog I have virtually met so many amazing people. I haven’t met any of these people in person but through their blogs I have learned so much about them.

7. Cooking

I really love to cook and I know it might be weird to be grateful for it but it is such a good stress reliever. I love trying new recipes!

I really love my gym…. so many amazing workout classes!

9. Christmas Decorations

They just make me smile every time I see them 🙂

10. SkyZone

It really is an amazing workout. I have seen some of the fittest people come to skyrobics and they can barely make it through the class.

11. My Job

I really love taking care of kids and making a difference in peoples lives.

12. Graduating

I’m actually graduating this month!

13. My Healthy Body

During my spin class the instructor always asks us to give thanks for our healthy bodies. It truly is a blessing to be able to do what I want to. There are many people out there who have health issues that prevent them from living their lives the way they want to.

14. Music

I am super motivated by music. If I’m doing a hard workout I just need a few great songs and I will get through it.

15. Happy Days

I am rarely in a bad mood and that is because life is WAY TO SHORT to live it pissed off. I almost always have a smile on my face and I love to make the best of every situation.

16. Snow

Although I don’t love the cold I really enjoy the snow.

17. TV Shows

Kind of weird to be grateful for but watching my shows is a great way to relax after a stressful or busy day.

18. Books

I really love reading… I haven’t had a ton of time for this while in school but during the summer I read a ton! I can’t wait to finish my current book and move on to a new one.

19. Photography

I really love photography. This is another thing I haven’t had a ton of time to do but I can’t wait to learn more about photography now that school is over and I will have more time.

20. Elf4Health

I have really enjoyed Elf4Health so far. I have met many amazing people who are always supportive.

21. My Readers

I am truly grateful for everyone that reads this blog. I had no idea what it would turn into when I started it.

What are some of the things you are grateful for?
