Inspite of. . . .

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Good Day Sparkfam! Inspite of being tired, cooking 3hour straight last night & entertaining my kids & grandson, I woke up & gave thanks & worked out. I felt like doing this:

Instead I got up & did Cathe Boot Camp, did some stretching & walking. I am trying to eat right but still eating my Wethers & chewing my sugar free gum. I did have a glazed donut for breakfast but thats better than 2 bags of chips, I think? lol

So inspite of what is going in your life, are you striving to be healthier?

God bless & make it happen!

Dee

    You are admirable, Dee! I felt like staying under the covers this morning too, but I did get up & "walk" (it's really more strenuous than plain walking) two miles with Leslie Sansone. Breakfast was good (my homemade muesli with blueberries & banana, plus milk & a little apple cider), lunch was good (low-fat tuna salad sandwich, chop salad, grapes), & tonight I'm going to be having Thai food with some friends--I'll strive to keep my portions smallish.

WE are admirable--we're taking good care of ourselves! emoticon

    I was just saying elsewhere that I have to have a plan to keep myself accountable, with the dreaded Christmas season around the corner I know I have to have a program to be ok with the delicious treats that will come my way.

I know that if I get in my four week program before xmas and I keep healthy during this time, during Xmas I will only allow a week out before a new program starts. emoticon

So Blah . . .

Monday, October 25, 2010


Good Monday Sparkfam! I pray you are having an wonderful Monday. This picture represents how I felt this morning & still do. I just didn't want to get out of bed today. It was so comfy. . . .

So I did everything almost eyes wide SHUT!! I started my workout DVD & I just couldn't get it started.

Well you I love my puppy Shadow & most dog owners are diligent about the care & upkeep of their dogs BUT the owners across the street make me so MAD!!! They let their 2 dogs run wild & they haven't neutered them. They have already had at 2 litters in the last 2 years. Then this morning, I heard a ruckus & ran down stairs cause it continued. Two little boys that were on their way to school were on the porch scared to get off the porch. I had to make the dogs go across the street & tell the boys to go to school. They were so scared & its lucky that I hear what's goin on in my surroundings cause something like that happened to me when I was around 10. A dog chased me in the alley up the back porch & I stayed up there for what seemed like hours but probably 30mins & once I didn't hear anything, I got on my bike & rode fast!!!! lol

Today, eating was okay but my workout suffered cause I didn't get a chance to do half of this morning. I will work on it more tomorrow.

So how was your Monday?!!



God bless!

Dee

    Morning Workouts are the best and most refreshing! emoticon

If I wake up. emoticon emoticon

Dee you needed that rest. Your body knows. You are very busy and active and doing more than we know. Get that rest for sure.

When I was about 19 I was walking to the bus stop to go to the Community college(was scared to go away to college because of my weight emoticon). A group of dogs were in front of me barking and following me all the way to the bus stop. That night I had a dream and the Lord showed me angels in front of the barking dogs. I picture that and what He said even now when I see dogs that could be a "threat". emoticon.

You were a Godsend to those children this morning. Keep being the Light that you are! emoticon
Blessings!

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!

Dee

    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:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6yhgFxDQMw

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!!

    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
