The Spark Solution

Monday, May 20, 2013

Good Monday Sparkfam, I have been reading the Spark Solutions for the last week an there are a few things I would like to share with you all. I actually ordered the book because I wanted to reach out and try something new. What I was doing currently for myself wasn't working for me like it once was so I needed something new. I saw that just flipping through the pages that my desire to try to erase past bad habits and start anew surface. I have seen my waist coming back to me which I forgot where I placed it within the first few days without a 60mins workout overload. I like having a regime & felt comfortable with having a whole team that reads blogs & supported one another. I didn't really have a favorite meal but I feel if I have to choose it would be the Bacon-Swiss Scramble. Apparently, I love breakfast which is normally hot for me. The tip which I found most helpful the slow and steady because I hit the ground running at a 100 miles per hour. Then feel like I have burned out within a few weeks.

Next week I would like to be able to have a lose in my win column of at least 5lbs.

To get your own solutions join the many who have found Spark once again at this website: www.sparkpeople.com/sparksolution

I would like to hear if you any of you have bought the book and how you guys feel about it.....

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

    Wow Dee so glad you've found your Spark again.
I haven't gotten the book, I thought, "Hey I got the first one and didn't really use it, why get the second one too."

I will look into it again after reading your blog. Seems like it may have be tot review a few things in my lifestyle and solutions to getting to my desired goals. emoticon

All the best as you continue to strive!!!

Happy Friday!!!

Friday, May 17, 2013


This is my grand baby with his picture taken sideways.....lol Yes, I am having a blessed & happy Friday & pray you are too......He is actually 8days old today & he has 2 sets of grand parents and one is being a little bit overbearing... Any suggestions on that? Oh did I say that the overbearing grandparents are not us...lol

Today, I am doing my hard exam on watching every bite of food that enters my mouth. It is going pretty well as I have plump up a bit a long with my daughter. So we will both be hitting it in a few weeks once she gets her sea legs under her.

Shadow my 7year old boxer has an upper respiratory infection. So he has been kinda sick but I just didn't know it was that. So he went to the vet Monday after he had a reaction to I don't know what on Sunday. So I spent Mother's Day mothering a sick puppy. He is doing well he got a shot of antibiotics, then he has meds we have to give him daily. I think they are working as he has a runny nose (which I don't think I've ever seen a dog with one??) and he isn't coughing or hacking as much as he was on Sunday. I am burning my candle at every end trying to come up with a schedule to really rest up but a woman's work is NEVER done....ugh!!!


Today for my workout I will be doing walking, weights & maybe a little kickboxing? I guess it depends on how early I get home from my visit with my daughter & her family. I go bearing meals, massages & mental support if needed. I guess that is what we all need some times, someone to just take care of us....who are you going to take care of today?


My little rascals....

God bless & enjoy your day!

Dee

Happy Day Sparkfam!!

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I just want to say "thank you guys" for commenting on my birthday today! I am so psyched but that is how I am on everybody's birthday. Today is Thursday and I didn't start off with a workout cause everybody kept sending me texts and called me. I hate to sound like I didn't enjoy the attention because I truly did and still do. So thank you all so much!!! I am really so happy right now.

Today quite a few years ago a child was born and is now a grown lady. She has been fortunate enough to be blessed, healthy & prosperous. She hasn't had it all but she has lacked for nothing. No she isn't a millionaire but she is a thousandaire. Her family cherishes and adores her and gives all the love and support needed. She is grateful for all involved in her life.....smooches!

Waiting on my cupcake.....yum!
Today I got flowers, candy, clothes & juicy couture from hubs, my co-workers got me a card & some flowers & a juice box of wine which was really weird. That's just my take, the kids will take care of me on Saturday but called me & text me as well. I got so many gifts from my Sparkfam that I receive with lots of love!

God bless & luv you all!!

Dee

Happy Thursday

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Good Thursday!

Had a wonderful day with hubs and a great 75min workout! We went out to breakfast and I don't know if it was the workout but the eggs & hash browns were horrible! YUK!! We paid $32 tip included for my horrible breakfast & hubs really like his his.... So unfair but we enjoyed each others company. Some times when you've been together as long as we have been having a good time outweighs the weak breafkast. We laughed and joked about it and I wasn't even rude to the wait staff which a few years back I would've let em have it! Also comp the breakfast too!

I pray you all are enjoy Resurrection Week and miss the memory versus for Easter Sunday. The plays we used to put on made our parents proud that we enjoy learning about the life of Jesus.....

Today I pray you all have a wonderful Good Friday and time well spent with your loved ones!!

God bless,

Dee

    Glad you can call Thursday happy and hope it continues throughout this Easter weekend. We have so much to be thankful for considering that Christ suffered so much when he took on mankind's sin and shed his blood as one so that many could have freedom and receive the Spirit! emoticon

    So glad you & the hubby can have a great time together despite yucky food! That speaks well of your relationship! emoticon

Easter blessings to you too! I just got home a little while ago from our Maundy Thursday service, which involves a meal together & footwashing afterward. It was lovely. Tomorrow night Good Friday service, & Sunday morning "Christ is risen! He is risen indeed, hallelujah!" I'm going to eat Easter dinner with my sister, & we're making it also a celebration of her birthday. On April 2 she turns 60! I just find that hilarious--not in my self-concept, but I turn 60 myself in 2014!

emoticon & many blessings in your remembrance of Jesus' suffering, death & resurrection!

Happy Thursday....

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Good Thursday Sparkfam! What a gorgeous day it has turned out to be! The news said 17degrees but it is now about 40degrees. I pray you are all having a beautiful Spring day, I am. I got a nice and easy (or so I thought) workout in now I am in knots. So I need to do a quick cardio segment followed by a nice yoga stretch....

So many things are happening and pretty fast as you know life is like that some times. My daughter is going to having my 2nd grandchild in May, I will be opening up my new business at the end of April and I might be renting/selling my home & moving to greener pastures. I am taking it all as it comes. I have prayed daily on these things but the Lord will make a way & I am a firm believer in that. How do you handle your trials & test?


What are you doing to make Thursday a happy day for yourself.....

God bless & be encouraged!

Dee

    Oh my goodness, you canNOT stir up my curiosity by mentioning the new business you're going to start--next month?!!--& just leave it at that! What kind of business? And what would be greener pastures??????? You may be moving away just when we've finally gotten to know each other in person?!

Seriously, I'm really interested to hear! And emoticon on the grandbaby who is soon to arrive! Life is pretty exciting in your corner of Chicago!

I don't know if I've done much to make myself happy today, but I didn't need to because a big gift was plunked into my lap this morning: the appraisal of my condo came in OK so my refinance is a GO! I've been thanking God & rejoicing ever since I read the e-mail letting me know early, before I left for work.
