Thanksgiving isn't far away, but you would never know it at the local stores. I went to four different places looking for Thanksgiving decorations for my hubby to put up at work. I found a pitiful display at the dollar store and a few clearanced fall and Thanksgiving items at the drug store. If you didn't know any better, it would seem that Thanksgiving either doesn't exist or was already past! UGH! The Great Pumpkin and the Fat Man in Red have edged out the Pilgrims and gratitude to God for what we have. We can bring in a little bit of Thanksgiving every day, but it is good to have one day dedicated to thanking God for what He's given us. Football and food are just the trimmings.
Hey, how are your workouts? What have you been doing recently? I did an awesome functional workout this week- Traveling step pushups, side plank core rotations, renegade rows, Pilates ball passes, Tricep dip-Tables, and traveling lunges with kettlebell passes, for example. They are fun, build muscle, and burn calories. By the way, check out the Spiderman Pushups below. What does your favorite workout looks like? We always love to hear from you @firstname.lastname@example.org! Let us know if we can share it.
Do you have a great healthy Thanksgiving side dish you would like to share? It would be awesome if we could gather several to post this month. We need the exact amounts by measuring cup, measuring spoon, etc. it also helps if we have the cook temp and time.

I received some great blog post requests from readers like you, so the posts you see this week came in. Hopefully, I responded in a way which was helpful. This month our health and fitness series is on health conditions and how diet and exercise can help you live better. Also, I got a couple of "Why?" questions for our devotions this month. Keep your requests coming. It is so much easier to give you what you are looking for if I know what it is that you are looking for. Email at email@example.com.
Guess what? We have some new products coming to our Totally Fit 4 Life Store in time for Christmas. You can also give the gift of health with an e-gift certificate. It is good on any service or product from the Totally Fit 4 Life Store (not valid on Platform Purple downloads or the Amazon Affiliate Store). Take a look!
In case you missed them:
Food: Hot Spiced Cider
Hot spiced cider is really easy! It only takes 2 ingredients. Put 1/2 gallon or 1 liter of apple cider into a sauce pan and slowly heat on a low-medium heat until steam rises. Put a couple of cinnamon sticks in and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Optional add-ins: 1/4 tsp. vanilla, dash of cloves, clean orange slices with rinds, or peppermint sticks. I don't know about using them all, though.
How can we pray for you? Let us know. Got a praise? Let us know that too.
Have a blessed week.
