Sealing the Deal . . . .

Friday, October 29, 2010

HAPPY FRIDAY Sparkfam!! I hate to rush the days but actually Thursday is my favorite day of the week. But I will take Friday every week. lol So last night I did rest the leg & had my hubby rub down my leg with witch hazel which it seem to have worked cause I did this mornings workout with no nagging little pain.

Well my workout today is walking of course which I try to do everyday. Not just walking to & from my car, or to the frig. I actually make an effort to wear my pedometer & try to get those 10,000+ steps. Some days I make & others I will call my rest day. lol Today I caught up on body sculpt with Kendall & then I danced to seal the deal.

Do you ever do your exercise in a certain order to seal in the work that you have done? I like to do weights first & then do cardio or yoga. I don't if it will make sense to you but it absolutely makes sense to me. lol

today for breakfast I had oatmeal & 2 slices of honey wheat toast w/butter & jelly. I was so full, YUMMY!! For lunch I was almost bad, I had a McDonald's Happy Meal w/coca cola. I didn't do too bad because I could've had a SUPERSIZE ME meal. lol I eat half the fries, too most of the bread of the hamburger & took a few swigs from the coke & poured it out. Tonight for dinner will be light. Maybe I might get out tomorrow & make it date night? It could happen. . . .((((HUGS))))

I pray you all have a wonderful Friday!!

God bless & get in 30-60mins of cardio over the weekend!

Dee

A Case of Somebody Not Doing Their Job. . . .

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Good Day Sparkfam! Its been one here in old Chicago. I got up, did my 30mins of Imax which is a very high energy, high octane workout. I made oatmeal & had dry toast it was really good. I actually could've made it to work on time but once outside, I found that it was a VERY chilly 45degrees. BRRRRRRRRR. So I had to warm the truck & I was underdress but made it finally & actually got compliments on my outfit. WOOHOO!!!

Let me tell you about yesterday afternoon. I went to Target to get to get chips, gatorade & red vines. It was very windy & I'm always self-conscious about run away carts. So when I got into the store, I noticed there were loads of missing carts. I was like OMG its going to be crazy. So I did my shopping got in & was ready to get out. I took my bags out of the cart & placed it in the cart bin. As I turned to walk away, BAM! A run away cart hit me on the hip. Man, let me tell you, I know I've been changed cause I didn't curse (outloud or inside) I just looked at the employee collecting the carts watch as the cart slide into my thigh. I wheeled around & was like that really hurt! It hurt for a while but the pain minimized. A case of somebody not doing their job!

Got home last night to do Kick Punch & Crunch for 40mins but ended up doing the entire workout. My leg kept aching & it was nawing at me. Two things I'm doing wrong, not resting the leg & wearing m 4inch boots. lol Some times I can't resist beating myself up but for good & not bad.

God bless Sparkfam!

With Visions of Red Vines . . . .

Wednesday, October 27, 2010


Good Day Sparkfam!! I had a good nights sleep but have you ever woke up in the morning & caught extra sleep? Well I did this & instead of having visions of sugar plums, I had visions of me in Target getting box upon box of Red Vines. lol I sit here & giggle to myself that people dream of food but not me, I dream of sweets. I even dreamt they had made a hard candy & that I could try it for 2 cents. So here I sit with my mind on Red Vines. I have been decent except I have been having twinkies. Which is better? High carb Red Vines or high fat Twinkies? I need your help. . . . . .

Anyho, I did legs & glutes last night & WOW are my legs tense. My upper body is kinda screaming too cause I did boot camp yesterday & I did plenty of planks, push ups & squat thrust climbers which is a mess in itself. Tonight I need to do 30-40mins of cardio, step aerobics would be easier on my body than kick boxing I think. . . . Also, the QFC for today is push ups!! UGH!!! Help!! So I will be do wall push ups & modified push ups cause a sistah is not trying kill herself. Also, I need to reserve some strength for the rest of the week's workouts.

God bless & wiggle a little bit its Hump Wednesday!!

Dee

    I love Twizzlers. Sour twizzlers. When I was eating them I fell in love with all kinds of sour candy. Is that part of getting old? I never ate koolaide out of the package like my sister...this is sugar less too. Lemons wasn't my cup of tea...now I love it in my tea...and they encourage putting lemon in your tea...not sugar.

I prefer Zingers to Twinkies. I am an icing person. lol So you know I love those Little Debbie's oatmeal cakes. But when you decide to read the box...you don't want to waste calories too much these days. At least I can't. I eat that dark chocolate though and it is tasting good. It used to be so bitter but for a treat I love it! lol.

Haven't been dreaming about food or sweets. I am so thankful to go to sleep. emoticon Red Vines are ok if Twizzlers are not available. But I can eat them mindlessly so can't have those around.
Hope you can sleep better. lol emoticon emoticonIt's those twinkies. emoticon
Later Sweets! Is it still 40 degrees there?

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

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!
