Are You A Mindless Eater?

This week my favorite thing is a little bitter sweet. Going to the gym is a routine event for me. Three times a week I load up my stuff and head off to enjoy my favorite exercise classes.

Yes, exercise is my number one goal, but I also enjoy seeing the faces of my gym friends. Exercising in a group is oh-so much more inspiring than doing it alone. I have attended the same gym for five years and over that time I’ve developed a number of friendships. We may not have spent long hours in conversation each week, but they knew me and were always happy to see me come.

Gym Goodbyes - Favorite Things

Gym Goodbyes - Favorite Things

This week I said goodbye to my gym friends and shed a few tears in the process

Few of us would count goodbyes as one of our favorite things; however, isn’t it a true blessing to have had something so good in your life that it hurts to let it go?

I’ll miss these ladies, but I am so grateful to have spent the last half-decade with them each week. They saw me literally just as I was; no make-up, sweat and all! I am grateful to each of them and the instructors who shared just a little of their lives with me…mahilig paalam!
