Dilemma . . . .

Thursday, May 20, 2010

So I got a financial blessing this week! Hallelujah!! With that being said, I don't want to spend all my duckets in one bucket. . . lol So here's my dilemma:

Which could work for dual purposes like wearing to work & wearing to church. Did I say that these cost $39.95 with free shipping from DSW? lol


My workout shoes which I wear indoors mostly has a tear in them but I am need of a new shoe. Now of course I could wait until Footlocker has another 30% off of online & in store purchase to get these $69 pair of shoes. Or what do you think? HELP!!

In other news, I did walking today, All Star Workout with Kendall Hogan 60mins doing jumping jacks & side kicks during the commercials, did Namaste Yoga for 30mins also doing extensive warrior poses during commercial breaks burning 900+ calories. I know I should be burned out but I feel like I could 45mins of tae bo. Awe too bad I got a dinner tonight to go to. lol

God bless & thanks again Sparkfam!! Help me decide . . . .

    ... I will have to catch up with Kendall.. I had some workout vhs tapes by him in the past, and I love his style... On that decision, I think you need the sneakers more... Good luck in making your choice... emoticon ~ Dee ~ emoticon

    Get the "too cute" shoes.....I'll go for a high heel ANYDAY!!!!! I'm 5'10 and my sweetie loves for me to wear high heels--he's 6'6"---and he's pretty good at picking out cute shoes too!!! Funny you are having this dilemma, I recently cleaned out my closets and I counted 163 pairs of shoes. 25 of them I have never worn (and they are cute) so I bagged them up and gave them away....I was kinda kicking & screaming but it was pointed out to me that they had never been worn so I must not like them that much (whatever!!!) Then the charge was NOT to buy another pair of shoes for the next 3 months.....I'm already weak. Please pray for me.

Get the sexy heels---get the sexy heels---GET THE SEXY HEELS!!!!!!

    I love the heels! but you do need the sneakers for all the workouts that you do in a day girl! I would get the sneakers which will help you look sexier then you already are! then get the shoes later. Keep up the awesome work Dee! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You gave your own self the answer by saying that the workout shoe has a tear in it and you wear them mostly indoors that means noone can see them with the tear in them. They can wait. Get the sexy shoe girl you deserve it. emoticon

    This is a tough one, the high heel for sure will make you feel great and sexy now, not to mention that is a great price. But the tennis shoe is the "thing" that will help you reach or maintain your sexy forever!......But in the end though, either one is a win win. And congrats on your financial blessing, God is good.

    I love that you do the Fit TV workouts too! I love with Kendell Hogan's workouts, he is so encouraging! I have two of them Tivo'd, one is called Cardio Boot Camp, the other is called Body Sculpt, I think.

Humping Right Along

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

So instead of dancing this morning, I did FitTv's Total Body Sculpt with Gilad & Shiva Rea Yoga workout & they were very intermediate. I enjoyed it so much I worked up an appetite. So you guessed it, I had a pancake, a spoonful of scrambled eggs & a slice bacon & a cup of strawberries. YUMMY!

Got to work & my co-worker who was so secretive yesterday about if I was coming to work or not? She even text me last night to find out if I was coming in? I told her yes. I just needed to go home & lie down. Well I got here this morning & a huge piece of Red Velvet Cake lay on my desk! How could I not eat that lushes slice of cake since I had never tasted it before? Well I finished most of it but stuck with the rest of my day.

I will definitely need more brisk walking. I'm telling you it was heavenly & its a blessing to be appreciated. You guys do it so much and don't get wrong virtual is nice. But being able to eat that treat is so LOVELY!!

Guys dance like nobody is watching & live life to the fullest!

God bless & take care!

Dee emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I Am Learning . . . .

Monday, May 17, 2010

Good Day Sparkfam! I know its Monday I some of you may be feeling a bit out of sorts but there is room to celebrate another day we have been blessed with. We need to show our appreciation to others as well as our loved ones. Case and point, Saturday the Hubby & I are on I290 battling traffic since the road work began, I see a guy with his blinker to merge with our lane. I ask him are you going to let him in? He smirks at me and pulls up. I find that very distressing as I am working on being more courteous in my truck. For those of you that don't know, I have a certain level of impatience when I get in my truck. Okay okay, my kids call it road rage def con I. I used to be at def con 3 but I have mellowed out with trying to love others as I love myself. Well, there is a lesson to be learned in all things & that is teach by doing. . . .lol

Today, I am doing power walking, I did All Star Workouts Sara Ivanhoe Yoga with weights, later today will be abs, tae bo & my QFC. Hope you guys keeping up. . . .

God bless & Happy Monday!

    It is road karma. I taught my kids when I taught them to drive that if they let peeps in, then they are more likely to get let in when they need it.

I haven't been on the Ike since the construction, heard it is a beeyatch!

    I always (ok almost) try and let people in. I always try and remember what comes around goes around - or something like that????? Kenyon on the other hand - ummm - not so patient - ha ha

Have a great week Dee.

    Traffic and construction are two things that I hate . I learned my lesson a few years ago with this guy who pulled out in front of me (on a back road, at night) and then he hits the brakes and I almost hit him, that made me mad and so I hit my high beams and long story short this guy went nuts on me! I was in fear of my life , if it was not for another car coming and my pulling away as fast as I could he would have done something to me, I have no doubt about that. Next morning I saw the news and this guy's face was on TV! he killed his wife who was having an affair and injured her boyfriend and that is when he went on a crazy driving expedition and ran into me (lucky me) anyway he killed himself later that night. So you are doing the right thing by being patient with people, it's not worth it. On a happier note, emoticon on doing so well with your fitness program! You are emoticon Dee, god bless , Ann emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am all too familar with this concept but I think my hubby is worse. I have to tell him all the time to calm down because it's not worth it because we have too many crazy people out there that would hurt you for no reason. So think about yourself first and forget about the little things. You will get your blessings for it.

Happy Saturday. . . .

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Its early & I'm still sleepy. I didn't get a fit night of rest but I'm going on with my runs. My guilty pleasure today will not be food, drink or working out. Today my guilty pleasure will consist of nice 40minute nap. I have longing for a nap all week & what a way to seal Saturday afternoon. I didn't like naps as a child but as a preteen I would come home do my lesson, watch a few cartoons & then you guessed it hit the hay!

Today, I will be doing Power Walking, Jumping Jacks, Tae Bo & Yoga stretches. What are you doing today for exercise or what is your guilty pleasure?

God bless & enjoy Saturday!

    I did AM and PM fittv workouts... and my guilty pleasure today was lunch at Macy's... chicken tenders with fries... but I had extra flex points and activity points from Weight Watchers to spare... It was a great lunch... emoticon

That nap sounds good, I hope you caught up on some much needed rest... Now I am going to pop some popcorn... I am looking at Twilight right now and Direct Tv...

...have a nice evening... emoticon ~ Dee ~

    I've done tons of walking and heavy lifting today due to getting things in order around the house. It's such hardwork when you finally get around to unpacking everything in your house. As far as guilty pleasure, I hit up the Farmers Market today for a couple of pounds of fresh blue crabs and some mussels. Yum! I'm going to indulge in pounds of fresh seafood and one mixed drink. I think I deserve it.

Dripping Sweat

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Here comes the sweat again & I'm loving it!! Today I got up & read the Word & prayed & worked my body out! I was dripping sweat & I was so happy! Sweat is my friend as much as water is. . . My workout today was 30mins of Cathe's Bootcamp & Cathe's Kick Punch & Crunch burning 800+ calories. I wanna do more cause I just feel like but we will see how the night shapes up . . . How do you feel about getting sweaty?

God bless & take care!

    Loving it! You are a monster when it comes to working out. I'm going to give you similar advice to what you gave me: go slowly and be careful. It feels great though!!! I'm heading back to the gym today. Can't wait. Enjoy a beautiful day!
