Are You Really Hungry . . .

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Not quite the hungry I am speaking of but it is lunch time. lol I some times can be so focused on my goal that I can some times over do it. Well I've learned from my past mistake to balance my workouts over days & not just do it all in ONE day. lol I once again have that hunger to get up pray, listen to Joyce Meyers, do a light or kick my behind workout. Rest. Then start over again the next morning. If I go light, yoga & light weights, then in the evening I might go hard with step aerobics or heavier weights. The first thing I must do is listen to my body. I don't feel like it every day but when I do: BAM! Its on like Donkey Kong! lol So my question today is are you really hungry?

Today, I did 30mins of Gilad's Total Body, 40mins of Muscle Endurance, did a few minutes of belly dance with Aubre, 60mins of walking & later tonight 30mins of kickboxing with Tommy D. Oh & let me not forget my Quick Fire Challenge 5-10mins. Burn Baby Burn! WOOHOO!

God bless you all & pump up the volume!

Me at work today. . . .lol

    Hey Miss Dee, I thought you said you wouldn't do your workouts in one day. LOL YOu out do everyone I know. I am hungry because I have not been able to eat the way I should everyday which is very frustration. But God is making it right. Praise the Lord for Goals met in 2010.
We got this!

Beverage Choice

Sunday, July 18, 2010

I gave up soda once before but today ain't that day. lol It so hot here in Chicago, you could fry an egg on the sidewalk. I used to drink 6 (12oz) ice filled glasses of soda Faygo Peach. Guess what? I don't too much care for it anymore. I do like grape, strawberry or orange crush soda. Now I drink my water but I also like a glass of soda especially when its hot So what's your beverage choice when it gets hot? Ice tea or sweet tea or lemonade? I like peach ice tea but crystal light brand.

Today, I got up and went to the 8am worship service & Pastor preached on Let us not be weary lest we faint. It was a wonderful & thought provoking sermon. I went to visit my daughter & grandson. I wish I had an ounce of the energy that my grandson had. I could workout for about 3hours everyday with his resilience. Went home made my baked chicken & meatloaf. In between time, I made grits, scrambled eggs, bacon & sausage. The men folk were hungry from worship service. They ate breakfast & then once they finished, they ate dinner too. I made corn & mashed potatoes to boot. I had a slice of toast, a spoonful of scrambled eggs & a slice of bacon. I ate half a piece of chicken & some corn but I couldn't do it back to back like them. Did I mention they are all slim muscular? Makes me sick! If I even look at the food they eat I gain a pound. lol

I pray you are all enjoying your Sunday!

God bless & chose your beverages wisely!

    You make me hungry every Sunday! LOL I cooked meatloaf, black eyed peas, cornbread, whole green beans and a side of brown. My son pretended he did not like black eyed peas. So I had them for each day this week. I finished them off today. It was one of those .88 bags from Kroger. I know how to make food stretch! LOL

My drink for the heat hear in Texas is ice cold bottled water. I put my bottles in the freezer before an outside workout and like you said it's on like Donkey Kong. Wow I miss that game. LOL
Many blessings for sharing your life with us.

    Have you tried Diet V8 Splash.... I am drinking the Tropical blend and mix it with either diet 7Up or Ginger Ale... you know about V8 tomato juice, well this is fruit based and has vitamins in it, so it a healthy alternative to drinking pop... there is also a regular V8 Splash, if you don't like the diet...

Glad that you had a wonderful Sunday... ~ Dee ~

Exhausted. . . .

Saturday, July 17, 2010

I've been up since 5:47am. I tried to go back & caught another 30mins. Watched law & order & then got up got dressed & about to head out the door but wait my bed isn't made up. If my bed is not made up it irks me something awful. Why am I that way? Well my mom used to send our sheets out to be dry cleaned. A truck would arrive & pick them up & dropped them back off in a brown bag nicely pressed & fresh. I loved the way she made up a bed. Some times with me still in it. The bed would be so tight & she would sprinkle powder between the sheets from Avon. So I have had a very busy day, groceries, dishes, breakfast, more dishes. mopping & sweeping the kitchen, hallway & bathroom floors. I had to help my youngest clean his room which is such & beast & he rarely sleeps in there. Anyway, I am going to lie down for a minute & take a load off. Later I will do some yoga stretches & jumping jacks.

What have you done for work around the house sake? I hate house work but I don't have a maid yet? lol

God bless & enjoy Saturday!

    Whoa Baby, you should write a book! I'm wondering where I should even call if I wanted my sheets picked up and returned pressed and packaged. That soes sound Chicago!
I've been working outdoors changing perennial beds to a no-work yard that my brother will be able to maintain on his own. I'm on a race with myself to finish it by July. Steep order though.
You do sound super busy. Hmmm, maybe the kids have some ideas on how to make more you time.
Enjoy the day!! emoticon
Wish you had a picture of those sheets being delivered! emoticon

    I woke up just after 5am too - my internal clock I suppose. I should sleep more since I didn't get to bed until almost 1am.

Today is my housework day... because like you I don't have a maid yet.

Enjoy your Sunday!

    Girl, I just started to invest in a maid service. It used to make me feel bad that the house wasn't up to par (even though i work 2 jobs). I decided to bite the bullet and let someone else do a thorough clean once a month and I just maintain. I don't feel so overwelmed now. The house is so clean you can eat off the floor!

Just a thought,

Rest In Peace Rev Walter Hawkins . . . .

Monday, July 12, 2010

Please listen to hear Rev Walter Hawkins

Today I lost someone whose voice (just like my moms) would lift me up, bring me joy & tears all at the same time. He was an awesome singer & wonderful pastor. Walter Hawkins died of complications with pancretic cancer. This is one his songs that really touched my heart & if you've never heard him sing, you've missed out truly a wonderful treat. I will be praying for his family as I know it is a great loss to them.

In my youth, I can remember gospel music playing all everyday & especially on the weekends when my mom washed our clothes on a scrub board & hung them out to dry. Yes, she was an old school mom. lol I gospel played on Sunday morning, there was no watching tv while getting dressed. You dressed first & then sat nicely until everyone was ready to go to church together. My time has changed but I am trying implement my own changes back to the old time way. No tv til you're dressed & then cartoons only. I need to speak this to me & my husband cause we are often held back by the idiot box. lol

I pray that we all take the opportunity to share with our loved ones how much we love them. Take a walk or eat a healthier meal to walk with them in the future. This is one of the reasons we are on spark to live & be better. The same reason I love being a christian to love greater, live better, do better & be better!

God bless you all & enjoy your day!

CIERAPOET 7/13/2010 2:19AM of my fav. I was a choir singer and I need to be again because I know that's one of the Gifts God gave me. His music will last because of all the recordings around. "Going Away" is one of my fav and "Be Grateful" "Changed" I used to sing it loud and clear(at home) and now it reminds me as it plays of those I love who I will love to see...and it will be soon. God bless the family again with His Perfect Peace. In Jesus Name.Yes Lord!

Roots of our Gospel Music. Gone...but never forgotten. When I was in my early 20's I wanted to sing lead on "Changed" but because I was so shy I didn't use my Gift from God publicly to it's potential. Use your Gifts from God before you lose them. What ever they are. Gospel Music on a Sunday morning was my choice, not my moms or listening to ministers on the tv or radio. I still do that and will keep doing it and teaching my young relatives also.
Thanks Dee for this post.
