Spirit Burn - Vineyard UK

5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • Thank you God for great deals on fresh fruit and veggies at the Superstition Farmers Market.
  • Thank you God I got all my subcon work done today.
  • Thank you God for my husband being merciful to the kids.
  • Thank you God for fresh veggies and good meals.
  • Thank you God for talk time with my husband initiated by him.
  • I need to do do some EFT on snacking, job stuff, money stuff.  Just haven't had time or focused on that.
  • Red Robin removed a comment I put on their Facebook sharing a concern my 10-yr old son had about them naming one of their burgers with a profane word.  We called corporate to express our concern.  We will no longer go to Red Robin because it is not as kid friendly as they say it is and for removing our FB comment.  It was respectfully put on there.  Their marketing department uses poor judgment in marketing their burgers in this fact.
  • Read an article on LinkedIn regarding how not courteous many employers/HR people are in not giving candidates they interview closure on jobs they interviewed for.  Not good and that just says a lot for companies.  
  • My husband and I had to talk because I allowed that LinkedIn article and Red Robin bother me.  I just need to let those go and move on.

Notes:  I won't be doing the Plank Walks on my elbows in the future.  Skinned my left side although on my yoga mat.  And, I didn't really like the Seated KB Pass Under Knees.  I had to drop down to 5 lb KB as I started with 10 lb was too much.  And since I don't have the flat abs that Zuzka has, I don't find this exercise effective for me, so next time I will need to do something else.  The rest of the workout was fine, but this workout didn't really raise my heart rate much.
