A Friends Thanksgiving


Yesterday, I may or may not have spent several hours on the couch watching TBS, they were airing all the FRIENDS Thanksgiving episodes, and I have to say, they are my favorites by far…and I have every single one memorized. You know a TV show is really funny when you are sitting home by yourself and you still laugh out loud.

Here are some of my favorite clips of all time from Thanksgiving FRIENDS episodes.

Lightning confessions…..

Monica’s Turkey Head…

The I hate Rachel Green Club…

Chandler in a box…

I could go on and on with my favorites but those are just a few. I do have a question though….how come none of the Friends ever were with their own families for Thanksgiving? HHhmmm? Either way, I always wished the friends were MY friends, anyone else? I also wish my Thanksgivings were as fun and eventful as theirs!


Yesterday I ran an easy paced 2.5 miles. My foot didn’t hurt, I just felt some pressure on my foot in that area. Does that make sense? I am thinking of running a Turkey Trot on Thursday so hopefully my foot will hold up for a 5k.

THANKSGIVING WEEK THANKFULNESS: Today I am thankful for the ability to run. I know I get minor aches, pains, and injuries, but even through all of that I still have the ability to put one foot in front of the other, and I try not to take it for granted.

QOTD: Did/do you watch Friends? What is your favorite line from the show? Or favorite episode?

Another huge thanks to my guest posters from last week, it helped me to be able to rest my brain for a few days while I was trying to get well.

So, it’s obviously November, and while a lot of minds (like mine) are already focusing on Christmas, we really should not forget a very important holiday coming up, Thanksgiving! I know in my life, I have a tendency to focus on all the problems in my life and not on all the good things I have going for me. Sometimes it’s good to step back and reflect on how good we (and I) have it, and maybe we will be a little slower to complain about how our life is just totally “ruined” by a certain person, or circumstance.


Especially with Christmas sneaking up on us, it’s easy to focus on what we don’t have, what our neighbor has, what we want, me, me, me, I, I, I. So I am determined this year that instead of focusing on circumstances that I don’t necessarily like or think are “fair,” I am going to try to focus on all the GOOD things in my life, and ways I can help bring GOOD to other people’s lives.

I am going to try to share things I am thankful for periodically, so keep an eye out!

For starters, I am thankful for my amazing readers! You guys are awesome, and I love writing for you, whether you comment or not. Smile I am truly passionate about health and fitness, and motivating and inspiring YOU! I hope that you have gotten just a LITTLE something helpful out of reading my blog, it makes me so happy when I get emails from you asking for help with a training plan, injury, or you just want to share your story with me. Brightens my day! Thank you for letting me use this blog as an outlet for all things in my life, it is quite therapeutic for me.


Since I am currently injured, I am going to do some arm and ab work today since I won’t be running. Sad smile If you have had tendonitis in the top of your foot, what did you do for it and how long were you out of commission?

QOTD: What are you thankful for this year that has to do with a hobby or doing something you enjoy?
