Thankful for health, fitness and mom

Why am I thankful this week?

  1. I had my annual physical exam two weeks ago. I had mentioned that I was going to ask my doctor to order a blood test to determine my genotype, and I was also going to check my blood type. Tests for my blood sugar, cholesterol level and thyroid functioning were also done. I got my results two days ago and everything’s fine. My levels of good cholesterol even went up! I’m so thankful, because I have a bad habit of worrying for weeks about the results of my blood test. It’s such a waste of time to worry, but I can’t seem to help it! These past two weeks I prayed, reminded myself that worrying doesn’t change a thing, and told myself that God would not give me more than I can deal with. There’s another test that we’re waiting for the results of but I am believing that all will be well.

    The result of the genotype test came back negative and I asked my doctor to confirm the meaning of a negative result (she doesn’t often order this particular test for her patients): did it mean I do not have the disease (which I already knew) or that I don’t have the trait? She said she thinks it means I’m AA, but just to be sure she gave me the number of the blood test company. I called and they said a negative result means that I don’t have the trait or the disease, which is great news! I’m really very thankful for this…I prayed for this result.

  2. I started exercising last week and I’m using a dvd every other night at home. I tweeted about it once or twice:



    It’s hard and I can tell it’s going to be a very long road to the body of my dreams but I’m committed. When I’m not huffing and puffing I remember to be thankful that physical exercise is an option for me. Imagine people whose physical limitations prevent them from standing, talk less running, lifting weights or bending. I am thankful that I have all my limbs, even if that means I have no excuse for not working out regularly.

  3. I’m thankful that I was able to spend some quality time with my mom two days ago. She shared some stories from her youth that I hadn’t heard before. I’m a big baby but I’m always emotional when I’m around my parents. I just think about their lives, what they have gone through and what they still deal with and I’m so inspired. I hope to make them prouder of me than they ever dreamed possible! While we’re on the topic of my mom, could you please say a prayer for healing in her right hand if you’re the praying type? She’s in a lot of pain and is having difficulty using the hand.

What are you thankful for?

    I try not to complain too much whenever I have to do some physically strenuous activity 'cause some people don't even have the option of 'doing' anything because of some handicap or physical limitation.
