Happy Thanksgiving!

I’d like to start off today’s update by wishing my fellow Americans a very safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday. I make an effort each and every day to take note of how incredibly blessed I am, but sometimes the grind of everyday life blurs that which is most sacred. Thanksgiving is day that allows us to refocus on what’s important, and serves as a poignant reminder that we should never take anything for granted.

I’m healthy and happy. I have plenty of food to eat and a roof over my head. I have a wonderful circle of family and friends who are selfless and always lift me up when I’m feeling down. I have two awesome dogs that bring me joy on a daily basis. I feel extremely fortunate to have all of these things. No man could ask for more. For these things, I give my most sincere thanks.

I was originally going to do today’s workout at my normal afternoon time, but I’ve decided to do it this morning between meal #1 and meal #2. I really don’t want to juggle getting Thanksgiving dinner cooked and timed properly with my workout – getting all the many side dishes I’ll be preparing to be ready at the same time is tricky enough without throwing a very tough workout into the mix! I feel good this morning, and I expect to have a fantastic workout. I’ll spend the rest of the day eating whatever I like.

On a final note, I mentioned last week that a new sponsor is coming to JSF. I thought the announcement was going to be this week, but there were some last minute details that needed to be ironed out. You can expect the official announcement on Monday!

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
