Are You Taking Your Meds. . .

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Today's prescribed meds are laughter, hugging, kissing & walking. These key ingredients can prolong life. Don't believe me then look at the research, no one ever died from affection or walking. Well I guess if you walked out into oncoming traffic, it could happen but besides that, look & live Sparkfam!

I did plenty of walking today, I am going to do yoga & try to get some kickboxing done. I had cookies & milk today for my snacks. I also had 2sm pancakes, a slice of bacon & a parker house sausage. Delicious! Now I need to get this body back into burn mode. I relaxed some last night.

So are you taking your meds today? I pray so . . . .

God bless & enjoy everyday!

    Yes mam I am. I started to put that on a blog. lol That was a cute little motifier. I had junk some on Saturday too and didn't feel bad until I ate those Mike & Ike's. Just plain sugar. But I'm going to jump on that mini tramp today for sure. I smile every time I think about it because I look mean if I don't. Blessings Dee!

    Hmmm . . . my meds came up short today. I did laugh some at a worship leaders' meeting this morning at my church, but since then I've been hibernating at home & working hard on a book editing project. No hugs or kisses, & very little walking. Sigh. Sometimes life is like that.

I've pretty much decided not to attend a poetry workshop tomorrow afternoon, though, so that I can get it lots of walking then! Otherwise I would be sitting in four different meetings in the course of the day--that would be wrong. emoticon

God bless you too, Dee!

Encourage Yourself. . . . .

Friday, October 22, 2010

Good Friday Sparkfam!! Its Friday, I just got paid & I will have a few bucks left to maybe get a new pair of jeans. . .We'll see if my sons don't come up with needing something as they always do. lol

So I got up early but I lingered in bed for a minute, then listened to Joyce Meyer. She is so encouraging but she will tell you about yourself at the same time. I like that a lot!! So I started my workout with Firm DVD 45mins (a good burn) & then did FitTv's All Star Workout Pilates Sculpt & man are my arms & legs tingling. Just like I like it, not hurting so bad I can't go on with my day but just a tinge to know I did something for me & my health. I am so encouraged & then I get in my car & turn on the radio & they are playing this song:

Man, I was on 10!!! It motivates me to know that the God I serve does not enjoy us walking around looking all serious like the bottom is about to fall out of our lives. He wants to be happy & be encouraged & have peace in our lives. Some times I feel down but that's just 10% of my life. I love speaking to people & seeking out to help people with things in my life & strangers on the street. So this song spoke to my heart & I pray it speaks to you as well.

I feel like I can workout for another 2-3hours but I won't I will do some dancing & a few weight exercises.

B: Slice of honey wheat toast, butter & jelly with half c. Carmel Vanilla coffee
S: mini Twix & wethers carmel hard candies
L: Arby's Turkey & Swiss & half cup of soup - took out most of the meat, it was WAY TOO SALTY
S: milk w/half packet of carnation instant breakfast - got to get my protein & calcium
D: Grilled Salmon, broccoli & baked potato
S: ????? open since I've been good. . . .WOOHOO!!

God bless & let's enjoy the weekend.

    Amen sister! Girl I just love these blogs. It's true...Be Happy! God is a Happy God and full of fun. He says His Joy is our Strength. There's Strength in laughing(health) and Smiling. Smiling makes your whole day better. I bet you are so much fun to work with too Dee. You are a blessing. Isn't folate the same as folic acid? If it is that's in a multivitamin if you take one or you can just buy folic acid. I need to check that out. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Girl I love veggies now just like I love smiling. I can eat veggies all day long. Sometimes I do not even have meat with my meal. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Wiggle Wednesday. . . . .

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Good Hump Day Sparkfam! I know its supposed to be a wiggle Wednesday but this girl is tired. Not from working out but from waking up at 2am this morning. I wasn't restless or tossing & turning, I was just laying there. Did I turn the tv on? Nope, I didn't want to bother the other sleeping baby. lol So he finally woke up to ask if I was too warm at 4am & so we were up talking about the things we need to do. I guess its hard when both us are working the same hours. I'm loving it by the way its not the best job & he doesn't get paid overtime but its decent. Eventually he will find something better. . .

Anyho, so I got up let Shadow out & then had to run out after him but he wasn't far. I washed dishes, washed 2 loads of clothes. One while I did Tae Bo. I pressed paused & ran downstairs to put those clothes in the dryer & put in a load of towels. It feels okay to wash at home again but I did enjoy getting it all done in 2hours & no running up & down the stairs. Oh, I guess that defeats the purpose of a workout huh? Oh well, finally stretch a little got the clothes from the dryer. Put the next load in & got myself together & got to work. I had a half cup of coffee & considering the other half? I just need to get a boost before I go home.

So I had raisin bran & 2%milk for breakfast, dannon light & fit blueberry yogurt as a snack, some red vines (I know right?!) half a chicken sandwich & 2spoonfuls of potato salad. For dinner its going to be a baked potato, brown rice & salmon & maybe a slice of honey wheat toast w/butter. Oh and carnation instant breakfast w/2%milk as a evening snack. I hate driving home hungry, I get there & raid the frig. This way, I got it a little under control & not grabbing raw meat & eating it. lol

This song should get you moving!!

God bless & wiggle a little!

    You are always getting those workouts in. Bless the Lord. It sounds like you have fun running up and down the stairs and washing dishes. lol I still hate washing dishes. My son know I don't like standing over the sink and that's what I'll have to do because we are out of the Cascade or the equal. He thought the Kroger dish washing liquid was for the dishwasher. lol Males! Glad you got some rest this evening. Or I hope you did. emoticon

So Nice & Toasty. . . .

Monday, October 18, 2010

What a wonderful weekend it was! I mean Saturday was like blah but Sunday was a really wonderful!! I had a awesome time at church & the hubby grilled enough chicken, steak & salmon for the rest of the week! Its like we will be having high end KFC on a budget for lunch & dinner. I am sure my oldest will have steak & salmon for lunch at school. lol My spirit is still reeling from the Word about the "anointing." My, was it a meaty sermon where the spirit was upon (up on) Mary when the angel of the Lord told her about her & her favor with God! Her question like many of us, "how can this be?" when you know of the greatness of our God!! He can do anything but we sit & wonder how & when? So when we get with God & know His will for us then we can stop questioning or trying to reason with Him. God's will be done, not our own! WOOHOO!! Amen.

Anyway, it was a little toasty today so I turned the heat on. I thought after it reached the 73degrees it would shut itself off. But as with most of the things in my house they never work the way I want to them to. Especially when hubby isn't there they appliances just won't act right. So it was nice & toasty but I did get 30mins of step aerobics & 15mins for lifting furniture trying to help my son find his key. I told him he would not leave the house until he found that stupid key. I took a day off last week to run errands specifically for him, so yeah, he gone be late finding that key. He is so lazy & its a struggle getting him to do what he is supposed to be doing. He hates being late for school so he moved a little. I eventually made him go through his dirty clothes again & BAM, the key fell into his hands.

A womans work is NEVER done!! I think its nap time but I am up & bubbly & full of joy!!!

How is your Monday going?!!

God bless & enjoy everyday!!

    I always work a 13 hour shift on Mondays. Still I find time to spark. We started out with a busy morning but then kind of died down this afternoon. Focusing on Church has been so hard lately. Only a few months ago I was a great Christian Woman, then I fell into some sin. Now I am trying to seek forgiveness and get back on the path of Jesus again. I know that we have a forgiving God and he loves me. Great is the Lord!! Hope your week to come is just as awesome as your weekend. Happy Sparking!!

    LOL girl you son sounds like my older son. He is so laid back and my middle son is much organized and balanced somewhat. I wish I could concentrate more during worship service but I content with my boy who is special needs, he loves to dance with the music and repeat what he hears from the pastor. I have not found much love in the so called church because of this. We went to a church and I always give him candy to help keep him quiet. The other kids around us wants his candy. So I brought some stickers to give them. Now I have started something. LOL! So We go where now we are received with love or at least let alone. I know God will not hold it to my charge. He knows what we are against and knows our hearts. The anointing destroys the yoke.

My hubbie took the week off and he is finding projects for me to do. When all I want to do is sit down. He is a cleaning freak. I am tired already after tomorrow we gonna talk. emoticonBe blessed this day.

    So glad you had a great weekend! Wow, you are SET for the week with meat. emoticon It sounds as if church was a powerful time of blessing.

It's good that your son had to be find his own keys. When you require him to be responsible, think of it as a gift to his future wife! Heehee.

Thanks for the Sparkgoodie--I LOVE fruit! Yum.

I Feel Good. . . .

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Got up late but I refused to just look at the tv & indulge in one of my treats. Which is laying in bed while I watch tv or it watches me. I dragged myself up & put on workout clothes. I then stretched & took a sip of water. I looked out the window & saw trucks parked on my side of the street (directly in front of my door) today is street cleaning. So I put on my shoes & moved my truck to the other side. Then I asked my oldest son did he walk Shadow? Well he got up late. Feeling sorry that he will be shut in for the next 4hours I took him on a 6block walk.

He liked that a lot! Then I got home & remember I was very lazy last night & didn't wash the dishes. YIKES!!!!

So while I was in the kitchen & I have a tv in the dining room so I had room to start washing dishes. Then when All Star Workouts came on I did Kickboxing & when commercials came on I finished the dishes. lol So I was busy but I still need another workout so I will shoot for tonight?

Today, I had a twinkie & milk for breakfast. I needed something quick & that was really quick. I had a hand full of cashews for a snack & my new found go to snack:

carmel hard candies. . . . I tried them a few years ago but could never remember which one I had? Then I found them & I have those when I want to have something that's not good for me. For lunch I had a HUGE salad w/low fat dressings. For a snack I had campbells low sodium brown rice, chicken & vegetables w/keebler crackers. I'm making chili dogs w/cheese for the boys. At least by me cooking them I will know what's in them. They're not healthy but the boys need a junk food night. They have been eating my baked chicken & spaghetti all week & its GONE!! So this is for them. I will have a PB&J on honey wheat & a cup of frozen (then cooked) green beans. lol

I am bit long winded today but I be shorter next time. . . Promise. . .

God bless & I pray you are all feelin good today about your accomplishments BIG or small!!
