The Big Gulp . . . .

Monday, July 27, 2009

I have been refilling my water bottle since I started drinking water on the regular back in 1998. I mean I drank water but only 1/2 - 1 cup every other day. I just never could stand tap water. I gulp soda & kool Aid since forever but water was not on my priority list of things to do. Now that I am growing in my health consciousness that now when I went to Walmart over the weekend I bought a brand new reusable water bottle. Now this is a kids one the one I bought is a 32oz mean Big Gulp & it helps me really gauge my water drinking. I am so full of it water that is that I am about to blow!
emoticon emoticon emoticon Not literally. Okay?! People mind on the matter at hand. So I am so into this I am researching trying to find the perfect water bottle. I don't care for the ones that you have to sip & the top is accessible. I prefer to have top that I can open, drink, then spin the top back on. Here a few I found:
but I really this puppy is really handy: It has its on BAG!! Is that cool or what? Well one is $18 & the other one is $24. If you know of any others please feel free to hit me up on my Sparkpage with suggestions.

Blessings,

Dee emoticon emoticon emoticon.

    There are way too many choices out there!!! I just re-fill my poland springs 32 oz bottle when working out...otherwise I am seen drinking from a huge plastic "GULP" cup from a convenience store.. for me using a straw forces me to drink more...

now the bad news.... last year my electrolytes were way down because I was drinking too much water!! Go figure! I've been doing this for over 10 years! My sodium & calcium #'s were way outta wack and I was told I was in danger... and to stop drinking water.. one glass a day and 3 G2's or Gatorade's... I went for blood tests every 2 weeks it was awful because I mostly drink water.... needless to say things kind of leveled out after 4 months, and they changed one of medications and I haven't had a test for a few months.. I am back to my 10 cups a day emoticon

    Hay, way to go, I have a Klean Kanteen 40 oz. it is stainless steel I take to the gym with me, I brought one for every member of my family not all was 40 oz though. You can ordered them for amazon.com. I keep a 32 oz glass beer mug in the fridge with hinkley water in it and fill it only when I finish the whole thing. this really helps me when at home to see just how much I am drinking. emoticon I was so much like you I did not like water pepsi was my drink of choose and it was not diet pepsi. Well Girl Friend We Do Know What To Do Don't We emoticon emoticon emoticon

I Hope You . . .

Sunday, July 26, 2009

Dance. I love being silly & dancing & I love this song, so I thought I'd share. Enjoy Life!

hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin',
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth makin',
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin' out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance....I hope you dance.

(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance....I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)

Have Wonderful & Blessed Sunday!! emoticon emoticonDee emoticon

Card board Box Treats . . .

Saturday, July 25, 2009


So I picked this up these up at Walgreens for $0.99 cent & they were actually pretty decent. The nutritional facts are these:
Servings 5pieces
Servings per container 2.5
Calories 130 Calories from fat 50
Cholesterol 10mg
Sodium 100mg
Total Carbs 16g
Dietary Fiber 2g
Sugar 8g
Protein 3g

I had them last night as a snack with water & I was pretty satisfied. I know that I did weigh the pros & cons of eating them but I mean I could've done worst. How? Eating chocolate chip cookies, 2 mini kit kat bars or some ice cream. Oh they sale them at Walgreens & that's everywhere so if you are looking for something quick. Go down the snack isle & pick these up with some cashews & sunflower seed kernels both $0.99 cent. Happy Snacking!

    This blog reminded me of an application that I have on my iPhone. it's called
"Cool Facts"

anyway, the other day one of the cool facts that came up was the fact that the box of corn flakes has MORE nutritional value than the contents of the box. Tells us a lot about what we eat, HUH!

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.

Blessings,

emoticonDee emoticon
