Get Sparked . . .

Friday, July 24, 2009

Happy Friday SparkFriends!! My important announcement for today is to get sparked! I know we some times wan on the importance of our health do to our busy family life, schedules, lives & hectic schedules. But our health is just as important to all those facets of our lives. Me & my hubby took a trip to Las Vegas some time ago & we were on the plane & the stewardess ask who should we help first, in event of an emergency? Save our self first or the life of our loved one? Of course, we would all try to help our loved one first. But if they are younger or weaker, then we put both our lives at risk. We need to focus of course on ourselves so that we can be a life vessel for them in the future. Do it to look good or feel better about yourself but remember you extend your life when you opt to choose your health.
Are you Sparked now?!
Celebrate Life!!

    Celebrate Life - I try to do this on a daily basis. Some days it seems like the days run into each other but I try to make the most of each. Surrounding myself with positive people is very important to me. Being strong in mind and body and an important part of 'saving' ourselves in many situations.

Another wonderful blog as usual Dee emoticon

And it's not just living longer--our loved ones benefit a LOT if we have more energy & are feeling good about life.

Hugs & blessings to you.

Beauty Rest. . .

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Hello emoticon emoticons!

We always talk about getting enough of the proper nutrients, water & exercise. Remember to also get plenty of rest which is vital to our weight loss success. Did you know that you actively burn calories while you sleep? While asleep you could burn probably up to 75 calories asleep, average girl, probably around the same from what I have heard you burn more fat when sleeping then you do just sitting awake in one place which is one of the reason (outside of trips to the bathroom) we are waken up in the middle of the night from a sound sleep. Make sure you are getting 7-8 hours of emoticon or rest those tired eyes emoticon every now & then emoticon.

Do We Really Deserve . . .

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

So I've worked out really hard & what snack or meal do I reach for? I eat my proteins, carbs & fats but then I decide I've worked so strongly & hard that I deserve bag of chips, or that soda. How hard did I really work? Did I burn enough calories to eat the bag of chips & 16oz of soda at over 500+ calories?! I know how hard I have to work but do YOU know how long you would have to work out to burn off those calories?
Let's see how it would work for me:
Aerobics, Step: 6" - 8" step for 45mins

Weight Lifting: Vigorous, free weight, nautilus or universal-type 65mins

Boxing: sparring
Walk: 5 mph (12 min/mi)
Running: 6.7 mph (9 min/mile)

Now, this is not to say that I don't enjoy most of my workouts but would I want to waste my energy on burning calories of high fat, high carb foods? Or would I feel accomplished by eating to live & not living to eat!

Remember get your daily lean cuts of proteins, omega 3 fats & the good carbs. Not say we can't reward ourselves every now & then. Totally remember this, once on the lips forever on the hips!

    When you put it this way, eating high fat/sugar foods isn't very rewarding...

Food for thought.

    Good job making the choice so clear! When you put it that way, it's easy to know what to do.

Can't Seem to Wake Up . . .

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Although I am sitting here at the computer typing, I am barely conscious. So if this blog is random you know why? I got in bed at my normal time but my dog barked about 11pm waking me up. Now I have to get dressed for work & I haven't even gotten a good workout in. I cheated myself. I know what's going to happen once I get to work:

Then one yarn leads to another & another & then I will take a walk according to my Quick Fire Challenge & BAM!

Whose gonna pick me up? Well? Eating the right amount of energy boosting foods but remarks from my Sparkfriends will also help! S.O.S.

I can feel it, its working!

Thanks for generating some energy for me guys! You the BEST!

Teamwork in action!

Luckily, I have my emoticons on board to tell when you done wrong, now get back up again & lets do some walking, jogging or jumping rope!
I did stay within my allotted 1600 calories cause I just plum workout way too much but I need a lot of work!
So off I go to work it out!

    I hear ya! But you're doing that exercise like you should, so you'll get through this craving just fine. emoticon Does it ever annoy you that all those emoticons are white people? Literally kinda orange, but you know what I mean. So emoticon instead!
