And she's off. . . .

Monday, August 02, 2010

So its Monday and I'm feeling emoticon I got up, prayed & watched Joyce Meyer & then did Namaste Yoga 30mins & 60mins of All Star Workouts Pilates Sculpt. I've up & running since I got to work so as not to allow grass to grow under my feet. I was so sad. . . . . .

I was a little jealous watching my fellow Sparkfam doing their workouts. I wanted to get in but I just had to be still. I was that indeed & it show in this morning's workout! I'm so excited!

I did one of my fast walks on my break, I thought it was a beautiful butterfly until it landed on the ground. Was that a grasshopper? It has black & yellow wings while it was flying. The moment it landed, it was a grasshopper. What's up with that? False flaggin...

Sparkfam, thank you all for your support! Its a blessings to have you guys show care & concern for me.

God bless & I have joy in my heart!

Pressing On. . .

Friday, July 30, 2010

I'm not stuck! I just determinded to press on toward my goals!

Yes I love getting 2-3hours of work out done every other day & some times everyday! I can't help myself. Its addictive! So since Tuesday, I have been feeling kinda tired.

Or should I say drained! There is a nagging pain my lower right side & it stinks of a possible bladder infection but I am pressing on & drinking my water & it maybe it will pass.
So what have I been doing? Scaling back on my food, trying not to get too deep into junk food & getting my strengthen back. Slowly its returning so even though I laid out a workout plan for the week, I walked most of the week. Maybe tonight & over the weekend I will get some weight work & cardio in.

To my concerned sparkfam that prayed for me or left a message on my page. Thank you guys so much & Luv ya! When we fall down we seem to pick each other up with prayers, thoughts & acts of kindness!

Question, when you get sick, how do you nurse yourself back to health?

God bless & its Friday!

    Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. It's horrible being sick. If you are not any better go with God to the doctor and see what's really wrong. That walking is cardio too so don't count that out. You will soon be back on your super workout routines in no time. I did just read a Spark article about shorter workouts. LOL
Many Healing Blessings sent your way!

    I usually slow down until my body is ready to press on, and also check the natural food store for ideas. I think I have heard cranberry juice. My friend's mother gets them frequently and needs antibiotics to get over them. They definitely make her very groggy, even batty, before she recovers. Prayers, dear friend, are with you. emoticon

Back to Reality. . .

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

So I had been off since last Wednesday & now I'm back at work. OMG! Its so hard. The first hour I thought I had been here like 2-3 hours! Don't laugh at me. emoticon I mean I had such fun yesterday. Me & hubby to TGIF's on a Monday around 2pm. It was so quiet & we had good conversation & food & drinks. We laughed & we acted silly. We went to pick up my youngest from YMCA camp & we both laid down for a nap. I haven't taken a nap after 4pm in ages. It felt so good on a summer day to take a nap. As a matter a fact I need one right now. Someone was laying on their horn at 1am this morning. I woke up frustrated & peeked out the window. They moved on. Then at 2am the doorbell rings, Shadow, my boxer was barking madly. My sons & husband & Shadow all ran to the door. The young man from down the street wanted to make sure we knew that the is a possibility of a gas leak in the area. Peoples Energy showed up in 10minutes. We are basically electric so we were okay but I am guessin "crisis was averted." Its amazing that you never really know what dangers lurk when you go out of your house but also that can lurk in the home. God is an emoticon God cause keeps us. I just whispered, "thank You Lord!" Although I am still up at 3am & sleep is closing in only to wake up at 5:30am. For a zombie the Girl is looking fly! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Also back to reality. UGH! I was so enjoy those lavish days of just doing me. The boys, well my oldest is working & my youngest in camp. The don't too much want to hang with mommy & daddy too much anymore. But it was delicious. . . .

So my morning workout suffered & I will have to do it in the evening. Step aerobics, weights & chair squats. I am looking forward to it so that I can sleep really hard tonight. lol

God bless Sparkfam & enjoy Tuesday!

Am I Really. . . .

Friday, July 23, 2010

Am I really that bossy or manipulative in gettin my own way? Thank God its Friday Spark fam! WOOHOO! Celebrate!! Well the reason for that question is me & the hubby celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary yesterday. We went to a restaurant he wanted me to try & I was not impressed. My mood, demeanor & attitude showed in every way. . Ladies & some men, you know what I mean. If its not quite up to OUR standards the the conversation is limited & the body language is tense. Oh we went to Pappadeaux which is a decent restaurant seafood & steak place. I do like Fridays for a quick bite & its fairly priced but on a special occasions I want Gibson, Capitol Grille or Mortens!

The atmosphere was more like Fridays but a bit more in price. We were seated next to a table filled with ladies celebrating a birthday. Needless to say, the waitress may as well seated at their table. We heard their conversation & every breathe they took! It was very distracting of our nice quiet evening. . . . Am I wrong for not being talkative or limited in conversation? I didn't ask to be moved or leave when he asked if I wanted too. I endured & even started talking. I told him this one is for him since he implied I always pick the restaurants. I wanted to be able to be with him & enjoy his restaurant.

Anywho. . . . Did not workout yesterday which means, I HIT it today! My workouts leave me happier than normal. Today, I did 60mins Imax 2 step aerobics, 60mins of walk/jog DVD, 30mins of Dance & be fit & 30mins of weights.

God bless & take care!

    Alright...Kiss that man and make up. Love is worth more than a place to eat. Girl if you knew how blessed you are to have a man...your husband take you out on a date...well you know Deb and she's learned from you to speak the truth in love. LOL It's ok to act like a spoiled child but smile and tell him you love him some more. Go buy him something special for YOU to wear. Ok I'm through DEE. LOL But you are blessed. I could tell you some stories. Please...appreciate that man always! You are Abundantly Blessed!

DEBR>HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND MANY MORE TO COME!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

  I would have traded places with you in a hearts beat, my husband died four years ago, every 19th of June I remember every place we celebrated our anniversary, some places were nice and other not my choosing but we were together! Remember you never know how many more anniversaries you will celebrate, enjoy!Happy belated anniversary!

    Noisy people, noisy restaurants, not too neat on any occasion. I bet one of the guys told him this was a great place to go. Hope you two have a sepcial occasion together soon. I've reached the age where I never opt for a Friday night out.

    I would have felt exactly the way you did Dee, I believe in having fun just like everyone else, but when you are seated next to other people it would be nice to tone things down some. You had a special night and wanted to spend time with your man, not other women, You were a doll to think of your husband's feelings b/c he liked the restaurant and that is what marriage is all about! have a Great weekend Dee! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Ummmmmmm just saying and I love you to pieces, but it has to be totally about him and yourself and nothing else. Not the talking, the place, the atmoshere, just you and him. As a single parent that is definitely alone most of the time, I would have traded places with you in a heart beat. What counts is your union and the two of you should be able to glow no matter where you are. Ummmmm just saying all the physical perks are not what it's about. Your my shero and I mean that! God takes us to places sometimes because we never know what the spiritual pull is that draws you there. A rainbow might have been outside and I bet you missed it?

Love, Liv emoticon emoticon
