Haven't blogged in a while, so here we go! I've been really disappointed in myself here lately. I haven't had the want, nor motivation to want to exercise. Been a little blue lately. I don't know if it's because I haven't been doing more in the way of exercise, or if it's because my husband has been working 12 to 14 hour days. I feel like we are seeing each other less and less. He's even been working on the weekends, which is usually "our time" to catch up and hang out as a family. I know that I will get over this, it's just been difficult.
I actually went to the gym yesterday! 35 minutes doing weights, and 40 minutes on the elliptical doing intervals. I felt great when I left there!! I had energy, and didn't want to fall asleep after I had gotten my kiddos from school, so that was a first all week! I hate when I feel like that. While I was at the gym, I got a phone call from my boss asking if anyone had told me that I had to work tonight. For those of you that know me, I don't work on Fridays. :) The unfortunate part to this is that I had not been told, and everyone had known all week that I needed to work, except me. :( It's fine, and I am not a complainer, especially when it comes to work, but it DID irritate me a little. The positive side to this..., once I get done on Friday, I won't have to be here till Monday night, so that's not a bad deal (plus, when I leave work, I can go to the gym before I go home for the day)!
I feel like I haven't been on here as much as I should and participate in not only motivating myself, but others. I am going to rectify that this week, and get my motivation from all of you. It seems that this website does inspire me to get off of my butt **wink, wink**, however, it's all of my friends that I look forward to getting on here and communicating with. Thanks for sticking by me! Hope all of you have a awesome weekend! Here's to sparking!!

Well, this week went by in a blur. I was EXHAUSTED! I feel like I have been out of the game for a while, but really, I was just trying to catch up from that nasty week of sickness we had going through the house! Not only am I glad that it's over, but glad that no one else in the family got it!
So, for all of you Wichitans out there..., how about that wind?! Boy, does Ks know how to show us who's boss with nature! Good Lord it was awful! My hubby and I took the kiddos to the park yesterday evening, and I thought we all were going to blow away. Glad to get out in the sunshine, though! 90 degrees in April? Who'd of thunk it! Well, we know how to break records around here!
As for me, I have been walking outside and taking advantage of the nice weather, but I miss the gym. That seems to be the one thing that keeps me consistent. I know how hard I push myself when I am there. So, glad it's Monday, so that I can start a week of getting back into my routine! We are to have a 30 degree drop from yesterday, so I am looking forward to that. I am sticking to eating healthy, so that's not been a problem!
Just letting you all know what's going on...., haven't blogged in a while! Hope everyone is doing great and keeping up their hard work to make their goals! Thanks for all of your non-stop support!!!! Till next time..., KEEP SPARKING!!!

Well, I finally broke my little weight loss plateau that I have been on. I have been working out like crazy, and it is finally showing on my darned ole scale! I am going to try and go to the gym everyday this week (before I get home from work), since my kids are home this week. Anything that we do during the day outdoors, will just be an added bonus! I have been eating a lot of salad, which I had started steering away from, but with it getting nice, that's what I have been craving! Fine with me! I love this weather that we are having, and it works for me, knowing that the kids will be home this week! Going to take full advantage of it!! Starting to lose my voice again, but at least I don't have the sickness to go along with it! !!
Hope you all have a superb Monday! I am going to the gym, and then we shall see what the day brings in the outdoors!

I never thought that I would say this...., but I am SOOOOO ready to go back to the gym! However, all it would take is me getting on the elliptical, or raising my heart rate just a little, and me breathing heavy, and I would be in a coughing fit! I don't think so! So here I am, not wanting to get out of my habit of enjoying going to the gym, and irritated! My throat is on fire from all the coughing. I do physically feel better, but I don't want to take the risk of not being completely healthy before I go back, and challenge my immune system even further.
Just irritable. Trying to stay positive....
I hope you all are working out for me, too! I will be back in the game, at some point, but wish me luck that I don't fail myself when this darn cold finally let's go of me! Thank God I have all my Spark buddies to keep me motivated! to all!!
