Scattered on a Friday. . . YIKES!

Friday, August 13, 2010


So I went to sleep after doing 30mins of pilates last night & watching General Hospital & Burn Notice. I was in a good sleep, when the power went out. We had to call ComEd & they told us that there was an outage but power would be restored about 2am. This was 12:10am & I was so on edge...... Finally power was restored & hubby turned on the tv, are you kidding me!! I couldn't go back to sleep. I woke up feeling fuzzy & incomplete but I did do a little quick study in Isaiah. Then watched Joyce Meyer. Then I just laid in bed for a minute, then I went got some water & then did Cathe's Boot Camp DVD. Talking about feeling the burn & sweating. I was still sweating after a shower & getting dressed. I felt good but then as the day progress, the tired feeling crept back on me. . .So I feel scattered & all over the place.

So I tonight I am going to do a few runs, my QFC (frog squats) & 30minutes of pilates. Then its time to rest & get dinner for the boys.

Tomorrow will get up early to throw some things out the basement & clean a little. I HATE & dread cleaning! I wish I could hire someone at least once or twice a month to do it for me. Me & my son could do minor cleaning in between. I can dream, right? lol

God bless & enjoy the weekend Sparkfam!

    Well I thank God you got rain. We still sweating over here in Texas and I don't even crack the door. Thank God for DVD's to workout with. I even have pulled out...My Prevention Drop it in 30...lol...thought I was going to say 30 day Shred? I will get back :to that one maybe in November. lol You did a workout after 2am? Ok...I've did that too so do you count it for the day before or the day after? I always wondered but if I already had it logged it's the day before.

You were tired so you went to sleep. I'm on the way giving up soaps but still watching General Hospital until they make me mad. I'm tired of watching Lulu and Donte' roll around all the time. Is there nothing else they can do? Love Joyce Meyer's wisdom. And Isaiah is one of my fav especially 60:1. Well did I cover everything? Can't help you with the basement...i'm steal working on my closet. lol
You know I love you Dee and appreciate you stopping by taking care of me. You are a very caring person and I know your family loves you. Of course,we would still you if we could.
Blessings
Deb

    I am sorry about your power. I remember our power outage ((which lasted a few days.)) I had to cook on our karosene heater, use candles. I started how in the world would I wash 5 peoples worth of clothes. I can wash on my hands...but. It reminded me of how great grand parents had to care of there household. WHEW! Praise God for the 20 century. I love my washing machine, dryer and refrig. even the stove. Our power finally came back on. emoticon

Happy Tuesday!

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

So I rose early this morning to watch Joyce Meyer & she rocked! I was encouraged & still am, thank you Lord! I got up & turned on my VCR/DVD & pushed PLAY! Cathe's Kick Punch & Crunch is in there & got 30mins & let me tell you I was sweating my behind off! Take a quick look:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbtpbWN4irE
I turned off the air & just had a fan blowing to get a sweat filled workout & I did indeed! After doing Cathe, I turned it off & turned on Namaste Yoga which they were doing the extended leg sequence. Now couldn't find that one on youtube but I found another one, take a quick preview:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHDqURcJc4g
I did have my Alphabits with 1%milk, dannon light & fit strawberry banana yogurt (picked it up by mistake but not bad) for breakfast.

I had fruit salad for a mid morning snack & a cup of grapes.

For lunch I had half a Chicago Italian Beef dipped with hot peppers. YUMMY!

For dinner I will have the sandwich I brought with broccoli.

No biggie but trying to have my cake & eat it too. The turkey sandwich is not quite like this one but its healthy. lol
Tonight its Cathe's Imax 2 on FitTv & I am walking trying to stretch out the morning workout so my body will be available for the evening workout:

I pray you give your body a few minutes to a healthier heart & lifestyle!

God bless & let's get busy!

    I love dannon light yogurt but I hate that they made the cartons bigger. I am only alloted so much 6 oz may be too much. I wonder why they changed the size???

Still Waters Run Deep . . .

Monday, August 09, 2010


First of all, let me say Happy Monday! Since it is almost over for us. lol

Next, still waters run deep. . . .

I love water & drinking it replenishes me & makes feel healthier. Well this weekend because my hubby bought so many cartons of lemonade because they were on sale. I had to take my brita pitcher out & I set it on top of the frig.

My husband loves to go in & out of the frig getting juice or just checking to see if anything changed since the last time he opened it. LOL I tell him time & time again don't do it while he is on the phone or preoccupied cause he doesn't pay attention. Well guess what? He opened the frig too quick & BAM! He broke my brita pitcher!

I was so sad that the anger started to swell inside of me & I felt so sentimental about that pitcher. My husband was sorry & after I got my words out, it was over. So back to the bottle.

Thank you guys for listening! I can be so dramatic at times, I know but I had to get it out. Anyhoo, its rather warm & humid today so I am drinking my bottled water & eating healthy. Getting my walking done now. Next its side lunges, then abs & push pull with weights. I need to get some kickboxing done but it depends on how my energy levels maintain during my workout.

God bless & what do you do for workouts when its just too hot!

Dee

    I workout inside when it's too hot or start early or do late evening. Chicago can't take the heat like we can in Texas and Oklahoma. Go swimming is another great way to beat the heat too. What I tell you about getting mad at that man? lol That's what they do sista. lol They don't pay attention most of the time and ooops....there it is...lol Don't you watch House of Payne? lol Just messing w/you. Guess my age? For real Dee. lol

Being Creative With Fruits & Veggies

Thursday, August 05, 2010

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
So I don't believe anyone would get their 3-5 fruits & veggies if they looked like this:









How can we get more fruits & veggies? Well we can start with fruit with our breakfast, snack. We could have veggies as snacks and with our dinner. We don't have to have just 1 during the meal, we could double up & fill up faster. How bout that? Sounds like we're being creative with our fruits & veggies..

Today, its yoga with weights 60minutes, Tae Bo 30minutes, QFC & 30minutes of walking DVD. What you are you guys doing to get more fruits & veggies?

God bless & Happy Thursday!

Dee

    I wouldn't want to eat my fruit if it looked like the pictures. I have fruit for my morning snack and I make sure that I have plenty of fruit on hand at home for snacking. In the summer my mom and I eat alot of salads. With all the fresh fruit and veggies in season we love it.

Fairly Decent

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

I had a fairly decent day today. I didn't get my morning workout in but I did take walk breaks. I had Alphabits for breakfast & light & fit dannon yogurt. Drank 6 cups of water & had soup & salad for lunch. Dig that!

It was quite this fancy. Just plain salad & Campbell's Healthy Choice Vegetable Soup but still, its a start. I actually felt quite full afterwards & now its 5pm & mommy is ready for some chicken & broccoli. You know it can only hold for so long. I found out that I really don't appreciate tomato based soups. YUK! Now I like tomatoes but having it for soup oh no!!

Random babble: I tried to hook my co-worker up with Spark but she just doesn't feel she can handle all the tools. I think I'm a pretty good teacher? She just wants to log calories. She doesn't need to watch her weight but I think she obsessed. lol


Tonight my workout will be with Gilad Total Body Sculpt & Cathe's Step Blast. I'm up for it, I think? I will let you guys know later. lol

What did you have for lunch today?

God bless, stay cool, hydrated, eat & think healthy!
