Thanksgiving Thang (JBO)

Q: DoubleMint

AO: Etta’s Nest

PAX: Jewels, Firecracker, Boots, Sourdough

Warm-up:  High Knees, Baby arm circles and potato diggers in cadence

The Thang: See pic below.

We did the 11 burpees after completing Turkey and Pilgrim.
We took another lap around the parking lot after doing burpees and ended with some stretching on your own.

COT: My daughter has been struggling. She injured her hand a couple of weeks ago. Her supervisor at work told her she needed to come back to work, even though she is not supposed to use her hand. She has been sick and she is only getting around 3 hours of sleep a night due to school, work and the two plays she is in. I told her that sometimes we have to just suck it up and do things even though we don’t feel like it or don’t feel well. We have to push through the pain and discomfort and persevere. Life is not always about being comfortable, but if we persevere and push through it, there are rewards in the end. Don’t give up when things get rough.

COT: I’m gonna share Dave Ramsey’s 7 Baby Steps. My husband & I had a lot of debt 14 years ago. I was faced with paying ALL the bills when he was deployed overseas for military. So I began to work through the baby steps & it has blessed our lives beyond measure. It’s important to me to put ourselves in a position to prepare for our parents getting older or if our children get sick & I need to temporarily cut back at work or take a leave of absence. Our family experienced 3 deaths last February so this idea of becoming even more financially ready hit even harder.

COT:  Negativity is a disease that spreads rapidly.. it is a hindrance to how one views the world, how one acts, it holds one back, it clouds one’s judgement, it pushes people away and it loves company! Some say negativity will kill you faster than any disease… Faith & Positivity Is The Cure! :heart:
Did you know that every positive colleague increases your happiness by 9% so if you can add 3 positive people to your network your positivity increases by nearly a third. A positive attitude will have positive results. Did you know studies show positivity reduces stress, gives higher resistance to colds, better physical & psychological well-being, better cardiovascular health and longer life. When Centenarians were interviewed a few of the biggest factors they all contributed to living over 100 was being positive and having faith.
Let’s give some positivity today…start with yourself, tell that negative committee to take a seat you got better things to do & give today! B-Positive I’m here rooting for ya:heart:
“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” “A joyful heart makes a cheerful countenance, but sorrow of the heart crushes the spirit.”
