I'm one LUCKY girl...

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Yes indeed I am, I have been feeling awesome totally opposite of the lethargic couch potatoe I once was (not very long ago LOL) So this morning I was driving back from taking DH to work, saw the most beautiful sunrise (insert awwww here LOL) and thought WOW I'm one lucky girl. I see gorgeous sunrises almost every morning and rarely do I appreciate them! So this morning while I was at the stop light I just admired it for a few seconds and thought "It' going to be an awesome day" this may seem silly to you but before I started my weight loss journey or better said my healthy lifestyle journey I don't think I was seeing the beauty in things. Sad I know. But I see it now and actually seek it out if its not in plain sight! Good food, good mood I guess. The manicure I got yesterday also helped emoticon had an awesome zumba class although I forgot my hairtie and it was HOT!! On a not so positive note my fridge is not working well... emoticon so I have to figure out if it's worth repairing it or if it is time for a new one. Excited for tommorow my DS will be singing at school for their spring festival!!! He is so awesome! Oh by the way President Obama spent the night in my city last night!! I wonder if he caught a glimpse of the sunrise this am LOL. Anyway have an awesome day remember to seek the beauty in things (even broken appliances) emoticon

    God leaves gifts all over the place for us. We just have to keep our eyes open.

I'm happy for you. A positive outlook is a wonderful treasure.

    Dear hubby and dear son. DD would be dear daughter :)

Congrats!! I was the same way! I just went through the motions and survived the day but never took time out to see any of the beauty that is all around us. That got better when I quit my job, and it's getting better as I focus on health!

That's cool about the prez - I would love to meet him!

Weigh in results, and Sushi Pics :)

Monday, April 16, 2012

Well I weighed in this am...still 142.9!!!! I guess it's ok since I did have a birthday this past week which included extra food, cake and of course alcoholic beverages (my nemesis LOL) Also I would have to be honest and say I could have worked out a little more...I do know my clothes are fitting much much better though.

So I made the sushi recipe that I found here on Spark and it turned out awesome super easy to make and much much lower in calories and sodium than store bought sushi! Oh and much cheaper also LOL I snapped a quick pic to share!

Have a fantastic Monday!!

Planning for next week,making sushi, new fitness classes @ my gym, new workout clothes!!

Sunday, April 15, 2012

So I'm planning the menu for the upcoming week this morning and decided I'm going to attempt to make sushi LOL wish me luck I found the recipe here on Spark so I guess we will see how it goes... I have to go to the grocery store and pick up a few things. Tracked my food everyday this week and managed to stay within my cal. range! (just barely a couple of days) emoticon . This week my gym is starting 2 new fitness classes which I want to try they are 25 min each one is an ab/core workout and the other is called lethal legs so I want to at least try them out and see if its something I like. I have never tried any other class besides zumba so we will see how it goes. emoticon . I purchased new workout clothes at the mall the other night super cute black and white Nike outfit! That should motivate me to keep working on my 1500 fitness minutes for April. emoticon I am weighing in tommorow morning, I'm hoping to see progress this week but if not at least I feel great! Clothes don't lie emoticon Have an AWESOME week Sparkies!!

    YAY! Let us know how the sushi turns out... Might just have to try that myself. Good luck with the classes. I personally like classes better I have someone there pushing me and I also feel like I have to do better then the person next to me lol. That's a great goal 1500 minutes! That is going to be my next challenge for myself!

Had to share a pic of my green smoothie, and other happenings...

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

So one of my sparkfriends shared a recipe with me for a "green monster smoothie" I made it this morning and I am surprised at how yummy it is! So I snapped a quick pic and here it is!

My mom is going in to get the results for her biopsy a little later today so I'm on pins and needles...hoping for good news.

Also Starbucks got the best of me this am, I forgot to set the coffee pot last night so I got my coffee at starbucks I did order nonfat though, but I was still surprised at the calories when I tracked it here on spark! emoticon

    DANG!!!!! You worked hard - glad you got the sleep you SO deserved! That is awesome (and fun)! WOW. I'm just so impressed because I don't know if I would even think about working out after a day at the zoo. Maybe now, definitely not in the past. Hey, if you still felt you had the energy, might as well go for it! :) Good Job!!!
