Happy Thursday. . . .

Thursday, April 08, 2010

So today I am taking a half a day to get some workout in & rest. . . I will let you know how that works in my next blog. I ate pretty light oatmeal, 2 slice of honey wheat toast with water. I wish I had some milk. I had dannon yogurt for a morning snack & had some pecans. I did fold & had hot dog & a huge salad. For dinner its going to peanut butter & jelly on honey wheat. My workout will be tae bo, walking, abs, muscle endurance & QFC hoping to burn 757+ calories.

God bless & enjoy your Thursday!

Dee

    Sounds like you had a great day. A very healthy menu. I wish I can do that. I start piecing my meals together in my head and then I forget. I just need to write them down. I used to mass cook...but I do keep Sunday's meals most of the week so that's mass cooking. LOL.

Hope you got that Peace you needed.
Blessings!!!

ABCs, Tony & the Capn . . .

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

What do all these have in common? They are my favorite cereals of ALL time! Post alphabet, Kellogg Frosted Flakes & Capn Crunch (original) with 1%milk takes me back to being 10years old again. Mind you, I do eat Raisin Bran & Cheerios & I get full eating them but they don't take me to happier place. lol Today, I had strawberries, bacon, egg (substitute) with cheese on a croissant, it was yummy & I am really FULL! I had a salad, a fork full of pulled pork meat only, broccoli & a huge salad. I am about to fall over I'm so full! I had a few sips of coffee to wake me up. I feel like I have been eating a McDonald's #13 with a vanilla shake and that's almost 1500 calories right there. I did choose healthier options today but I also indulged in the Red Vines, I know, I know. Don't beat me up too badly, I'm a work in progress.

Well, I did walking & abs and will do Boot Camp, Yoga fusion tonight burning almost 1200+ calories. I'm getting sleepy just thinking about it.

So its Hump Day, my grandson highly recommends it.

    Yummy. Sounds like a good day of eating. I love to get really full for breakfast and then eat less throughout the rest of the day. As for cereal, I am a Cap'n cruncher too. I like to eat cereal for dinner sometimes, and although I try to eat Special K most of the time, there is nothing better than a childhood favorite to make my day! Happy Wednesday. God Bless

Same Time. . . .

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

How come when I am working out like a maniac I am eating like a maniac?! lol I have just come to that realization that I need to put 1+1 together to get success! When I eat loads of veggies & fruits & combine that with working out, I lose but I win too. Why can't my brain put them together already & stop with INSANITY!! lol emoticon emoticon

Just venting a little.

Today, I walked, did kickboxing, windmills with arms (100) Quick Fire Challenge & will do weights tonight for about 30minutes & combine eating almost right. lol emoticon emoticon emoticon Make it happen!

God bless & what did you do for you today? I am leaving early.

    Me too, I exercise everyday for 2hrs and end up starving and called a close friend of mine and he said I need more carbs to eat. So, I have to remain in my calorie range and eat more carbs. Where there is a will there is a way. I know the feeling of hunger too much also lol. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon we can all do this and finish losing weight.

    the key is mama you are working out. that is what really matters. my mother is at this point in her journey - needing to free herself from her restrictive diet and get more into fitness. itsnt this what is should eventuallly become about. if you are doing this at least you are maintaing and this a a HUGE accomplishment so celebrate that misses!

    I was doing the same thing a year ago. I was spending 2 hours a day on my workout activities, then would be starving by the time I returned home. It wasn't until I started tracking my nutrition that while I thought I was eating healthy, I really wasn't and those choices were putting me over on the calorie count. Once I started tracking, I've been making better choices and losing weight!!!

    Hi Dee

I agree with KatMomma, when you work out excessively and your body doesn't have enough carbs for you to burn calories and loose weight, all you are loosing is muscle mass not fat. You have to have enough calories to burn off. Veggies are good but you got to have proteins, fat, and carbs to make it work.

    Very true..the same thing happens to me but I try to pig out on veggies. Most the time after the gym I make a mean veggie str-fry which is out of site!

FITKAT2010 4/6/2010 2:35PM

    I don't understand your dilema. You HAVE to eat more when you work out more. And eat whole foods. That's the ticket.

Little Girl Lost. . . .Found

Monday, April 05, 2010

What a wonderful & blessed we had yesterday! The day started off a little cloudy but the sun actually started to shine but noon. The kids were out in the suits playing & showing off like we used to do as kids. The church lots were filled & me & mine made it early & had fellowship & it was emoticon to be in the presence of the Lord.

Of course, I cooked up a storm, beef short ribs, baked honey ham, baked chicken, turnip/mustard greens, yams, spaghetti (left over), corn bread turkey stuffing & dinner rolls. I didn't do breakfast so the smells coming from the kitchen co-mingling together had the dog's mouth watering! lol We had a wonderful dinner & spent time with each other, laughing, joking & just being close together.

The hubby decided to go see Why Did I Get Married 2. Well I hate going to the movies but one of my goals is to come out of comfortable skin. It was a Easter & Sunday with combination it was too crowded. So once we were inside, I couldn't believe so many people brought their young children to see this movie. My hubs wanted to leave but I wouldn't let him cause it was his ideal & I was out & not up to do again another day. The movie was good, Tosha was gettin on my last nerve, her mouth moving a million miles a minute but the plot was decent. So we left & it was raining. So we got outside & I was wearing my 4in boots so I ready to get home. Well there was this sweet little angel, came up to me & held my hand & said, she was lost. She couldn't find her people. She didn't know her phone number or what movie they were going to see. I told my feet, "Peace!" & they walked her back inside to security. My hubs didn't want to just leave her, so we waited & 2minutes here comes her family. Now answer me this, why were they inside & she was running around outside approaching people? Anyone could've snatched her up! I was sick to my stomach! Then I think of myself not much bigger than her, when I walked some 16blocks from church to my house. Why? Cause I thought my mom left me. Yes, the police were called & I was celebrated instead of punished. Thank God for my mother. . . . . .

God bless & Happy Manic Monday!

Dee emoticon

    God bless your husband for suggesting the movies and you making him stay after getting there. God's plans always work out for those who listen to His voice for you were there for the right reason and that child did not come a victim on such a wonderful day as Resurrection Day. God bless you for allowing your Light to shine for your family and those you do not know. You are blessing and I am so proud to know you even if it's only on Spark. You continue to allow you Light to shine for Jesus.
Blessings

I Feel Pretty . . .

Friday, April 02, 2010


Its another gorgeous day here in the city of Chicago, so me & my Shadow went walking down the avenue. lol We created quite a stir but we kept high stepping. emoticon emoticon emoticon So do you see that beautiful edible arrangement in the pic above? Well even though it was my off day, I actually received this at the office today! emoticon emoticonDid I tell you guys that I feel pretty today? lol Anyway, I order food for our meetings & classes, so there was an individual observing lent so I tried to make sure I ordered pasta fettuccine & soup. Well he wanted to pay me cash for ordering special for him but I believe in fasting & giving up things for lent so I told him it wasn't necessary. Well, I guess he went above & beyond & bought me this edible bouquet. I got the call this morning & man, I almost jumped out of my skin! I kept wondering who is Humburto? Well, no good deed goes unnoticed. I try to be nice even when I'm impatient. We never know who's watching us. Amen.

Today, did loads of walking, QFC, yoga stretches & weights.

What did you do for someone else today? Share.

God bless & Enjoy Good Friday!

    Dee, that sounds wonderful.........Your pretty so, it's good that your feeling good in your own skin.

Since Monday is my Taylor's birthday........I have all the teenagers over right now as I type. Taylor is doing the birthday thing for the next two weeks, so she has a house full right now.......but what I've done today is talk to all the girls about not putting their heart out their so soon while they are so young. A few were depressed because they don't have dates for junior or senior prom........I somehow was able to tell them that they have their whole lives ahead of them.....these young men are not serious.....and they shouldn't be so serious at 16, 17 & 18.......so that's my Good Friday. Can you believe that I'll have a 17 year old......where has the time gone.....LOL

Stay feeling oh so pretty.....that's what happens when your beautiful on the inside.
