Prompt: Appreciate. What's the one thing you have come to appreciate most in the past year? How do you express gratitude for it?
That is easy.My health. I'm so happy to be in such good shape, to be able have the experiences and adventures I've had due to being an ultra trail runner.
How do I express gratitude for it? I try to take care of myself.I try to eat correctly and keep the processed foods to a minimum.
Which led to the situation at work today: I made a green smoothie, consisting of spinach, banana, frozen cherries and strawberries. I put this in a regular see-through water bottle. As I was shaking it, and drinking it, this afternoon, I got the usual comments from the co-workers:
"That's sick" Me: "No, that's really healthy"
"But you were eating vegetables earlier today.Why are you drinking that?" Me: "To get more veggies in."
I'm sure, if I had been eating a bag of potato chips, no one would have batted an eye, or made any comment.
Which, thinking about, I'm now wondering if I even get my daily servings of veggies and fruit in. I will need to look into this!
