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!!

    You are a Go Getter. You can get up late and do all of that? You need to own your own business and have people working for you. I love the way you live your life. And I love the way I live my life. Isn't God Good? Love you lady!

    You are funny! I like the image of you kickboxing until the commercial comes on, then scurrying over to the sink to wash a few dishes . . . back & forth. Way to go!

On my end, I'm cutting WAY back on sugar, & suddenly I'm losing weight again! Just sayin'. emoticon

I'm Still Here. . . .

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

So I'm still here & have joy inspite of what has transpired & what I've been through. I know that I have things that I go through & I am not happy 100% of the time but let me tell you people know when I'm going through cause I'm not smiling. lol We all have those times but I meditate & know that He is whispering to me, "peace be still." I don't worry that I'm alone in this cause people in my life & on spark, they got me. Meaning that you guys uplift me & I in turn do the same. So yes I got more bills than money. I'm doing what I can do to make. Meaning, I'm leaning on the everlasting arm! WOOHOO! So the kids don't understand what you get paid verses their needs, the house needs, card needs but still I'm here. Not unhappy about cause I know He is working it out for me & you. We just have to have faith & trust in God. Sounds simply but its hard too.


So don't be afraid & some times we have to do it in fear.

Today, I'm doing upper body & step aerobics & walking. So what are you doing to get away from what ails/worry you?

God bless & enjoy Tuesday!

Dee

    Hey Sis,

You know God's got your back and we do too!

I love you dearly, especially because you are so encouraging and inspirational despite your personal trials. Even in this blog you still ask how we're doing and keep us motivated. It's women like you who are models for others to follow.

    Morning/Afternoon Dee.

I'm going keep my mind off of stuff that may hinder my Joy. Can't change it by taking thought like He said in Matthew 6 so I will not. I love the sun and blue skies and marvel at His Glory on this earth and in us. He is so Faithful. I'm going to be faithful to Him. We are a blessed Nation because of the many freedoms we have. Thank God! emoticon emoticon
Enjoy this beautiful Tuesday!

    not in the trenches but in deep thought about many things in life. I know God is with me where ever I go and what ever I do. His words comforts me. I heard a massage from Joyce Meyers. God is good he puts the right people in your path.

    I understand completely. Been there, still there.....actually.
But each and every time I go thru something, I learn to lean more and more on God - and I am taken care of! He will get us thru anything. I also find it wonderful at the support I have got on here - much needed & appreciated!
You have much support here! Thanks for supporting me as well - your comments were very helpful to me personally.
THANK YOU.

    Yep, I've got money troubles too--but yes, God is sufficient & abounds in steadfast love! He is good ALL the time. Over time, though your kids want more stuff now, they will see God's faithfulness to your family, & it will build their faith. That happened with mine.

Getting up & exercising energetically for half an hour this morning helped me deal with worries. And praying, of course!

Have a fabulous day.

    Hey You!

I've been down in the trenches too. Taylor's Dad lost his job two weeks ago and I have until March to find something new to do.......my job is going global......to India........so I have to figure out how we are going to get Taylor in college, finish up this years tuition and keep the house and us afloat. Did I say my head hurts. Thanks for reminding me that he has us in his hands and that all things will work themselves out.

It's Monday . . . .

Monday, October 11, 2010


Its Monday & all in all Sparkfam, it hasn't been too bad. Actually its been real slow. I was on the phone & I was yawning & didn't even know it. Today its been like watching paint dry but I am so happy that it will be time to go. The kids had the day off so my daughter took my youngest & her son to Chuckie Cheese. They are having fun & I don't have to worry about taking them out when I get home to stretch their legs. I can do my step aerobics & ab workout & then stretch lightly afterwards.

I know that they have reports that say Monday is the day you are likely to have a accident, have a bad attitude or bad day but I actually am loving this gorgeous day! So how did your Monday go?

God bless Sparkfam!

    Well Dee had a great Monday and then I fell asleep before finished posting last night. lol emoticon. My body was recovering from going to sleep late and waking early this past weekend. Plus my back was hurting so I needed the rest. So Monday was a beautiful sunny day...although they reported thunderstorms. emoticon I'm glad the children had the day off here too but the neighborhood was quiet and couldn't tell. Maybe they were all at our public library a block away. Blessings!

I am having a weird day. I don't know why, but I've been feeling anxious about nothing in particular, just wired like my insides are going to explode.

    Lovely that you have some schedule space to fill with something fun for you & the hubby!

I'm going out to eat with some neighbors tonight--we decided we need to get to know each other better, which I think is very cool. We can walk to a great little Persian restaurant in our neighborhood--it's one of my favorites.

Tomorrow morning I'm doing a presentation to fellow editors out in the burbs (I'm being paid for it, so that's cool!), & afterward I'll have lunch with my sister, taking advantage of being in her neck of the woods. Once I get home I'll get back to working hard on a freelance project for a few hours. I have a Japanese film to watch in the evening, Departures--it looks really good.

On Sunday, church & a bit of tidying up at home, then I hope to take a long walk in this gorgeous weather!

Happy weekend to you, Dee! emoticon

Inhale . . . . . .

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Meet Steve Ross, this guys is WONDERFUL!! This is his bio:
Ross was certified as a yoga instructor in 1980, but didn't begin teaching immediately. Eventually, he took up residence at Yoga Works. During his tenure there, he was still a working musician and last toured in 1993, after which he set aside his guitar (Well, not completely; he's presently recording a "non-traditional" chanting CD) and rolled out his yoga mat. He's now been teaching for 20 years and opened Maha Yoga four years ago.

Today I did catch up, I did Upper Body & Legs & Glutes w/ Cathe. Then I wrapped it up with Tommy D All Star Workouts Kickboxing & then did 60mins of Inhale with Steve Ross. He plays old school Steve Wonder, Stomp by Kirk Franklin & the family, he plays traditional Indian music & makes you move & groove while you are holding yoga poses. I mean, hold them down those yoga poses I was sweatin more than when I was doing the upper body. He makes you hold them & breathe into the poses & its like I'm taking an actual class. I DVR a copy of this program when it was on Oprah's channel Oxygen. Its no longer on & its so sad cause my muscles remember poses & I got deeper & deeper with each inhale/exhale. So I after I post this blog I'm off to bed. Its been one today & its been a blessings. I didn't get to play outside like I wanted but I will definitely try to get my walk on with Shadow in the a.m.

There is not audio but no is needed you get the gist. . . .Inhale

Namaste. . . .

God bless & enjoy everyday!
