How Is It Going?

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

Hey Sparkfam! Its the 4th day of January I just wanted to ask you how is it going? I don't know why but after Thanksgiving I haven't worked out as hard as normally do. So now what? As I try to get back to my level of commitment which is roughly 1hours of walking 1hour of various fitness dvds. Where I am today, well I did do 30mins of walking, 30mins of Total Body Sculpt, 30mins of Zumba & looking forward to Pilates Sculpt tonight. Now if I get 30mins that's really nice but if I could do the whole 60mins WOOHOO! lol

I don't count it as depressing that I am not staying on fruits & veggies & lean meats only. I find that I am not eating 2 big mac or 1 double quarter pounder with cheese & a large fry & soda. No quite the opposite I ate a bowl of oatmeal with 1 slice of honey wheat toast w/2%milk. For lunch I had a baked potato w/butter & a cup of low sodium soup. However that's where it gets crazy, I took a vitamin & if I am not completely full then I will get light headed sluggish & queasy. So I had to eat a bag of chips & a bag of raisinets. So tonight's dinner will be pb&j on honey wheat broccoli brown rice & milk. I might have a small piece of jerk chicken to fill any voids from being hungry. When you workout for 2hours or more you should be putting away close to the high end of your caloric range until your can trick your tummy to eat less. lol I also had red vines, I wanted some but it was cold I didn't want to go to the store & the hubby feeling guilty for an argument he started bought me a few packs. So you know what that means, I will have bring my A game.

How is your water & sleep going as well? I've had 6 cups so far & working toward my 8cups my sleep last night was treacherous cause I the heat was up way to high & I prefer to sleep comfortably at 74 degrees & loads of cover. My hubby loves to keep it on 82degrees. I was burning more calories in my sleep than I possibly wanted to. So I had to get up & turn off tvs, turn down the heat & then BAM, I'm up. So tonight I should be good & tired & get plenty of rest.

God bless & enjoy everyday!!

    You are still rocing it girl, don't beat yourself up. It's very normal to not feel like working out in the winter. We just have to remind ourselves why we are doing this. To me a great reminder is having all my friends from school (popular girls) tell me I look great after I posted a picture up on FB. That makes me want to stay on track and make it happen. I still have to work on drinking more water though, lol. Keep up the awesome work Dee! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Isn't it funny how hubbies will bring the very worst thing to you. Instead of delicious grapes or strawberries. emoticon Be careful. When I take vitamins without eating I get sick on the stomach. Metformin diabetic meds I have to eat before or else. I just know you will get your mojo going again. emoticon

    I got tired reading of your workouts. emoticon! Take things one healthy meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time. Aim for a one pound loss then when you lose it, be proud and work toward one more pound. Small success build confidence and are easier to envision than a huge amount of pounds to lose. Keep up the good effort. emoticon -- Lou

Happy New Year's Sparkfam!

Friday, December 31, 2010

Happy New Year's Eve Sparkfam! Its been a glorious year & I want thank you all for your support! Its been a wonderful day that I have spent with my family & in prayer & filled with fabulous food. We had a rack of lamb, lobster tail, jerk chicken, tbone steak & baked salmon. The sides were chicken & broccoli stir fry & chicken & green bean stir fry, baked sweet & baked potatoes, a garden salad, garlic cheese toast, caramel & strawberry shortcake cakes.

My family spared no expense with the compliments and I must say the meal was better than I expected. The lamb was tender and had its own unique taste. I really liked it alot. Well I kissed each & everyone of them & we had prayer & we will light candles tonight. Have you made your resolutions yet? I don't make any myself but together we can keep them. . . .

Gettin Back Into the Habit

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

Happy Tuesday Sparkfam!! I am sitting here on bed not working out but sparking. I need to get busy doing my workout. But first things first, I need to go the Post Office & mail some bills. I don't know what is going on with mailing my bills but its not taking anywhere from 8-15 days before they get it. Now mind you I used mail a bill today & it would hit my bank by Thursday. So its a win/lose situation. Meaning my pay check will get there on Friday & if the post it tomorrow it may be a insufficient funds fee. I used to get them all the time but now I am working in overdrive to prevent them. I am doing well.

So I have fallen out of the habit of working out like I use to. I need to get back into the habit again. It won't take anything but except for me to get up & just do it. I know I love to workout so it won't be too hard for me.

New Year's resolution is the same as always to build this person that is me everyday. What is your resolution to you?

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Merry Christmas Sparkfam. . .

Friday, December 24, 2010

So the day is winding up & we finished shopping & now just laying back for a minute. I have a few presents to wrap but I don't wanna. . . Do I really have too? Can't I just put it on the couch & they find it when they wake up? Hopefully we can make it to church early morning service & open gifts afterwards. So Merry Christmas Sparkfam:

I know we all delight in receiving but I delight in giving. So I pray you all have a blessed Christmas & remember the true reason for the season:

God bless & no peeking. . . .

Brrrr Baby Its Cold Outside. . .

Thursday, December 23, 2010

So Sparkfam its been one of those days here in Chicago. First I would like to say, that I have been having a blessed week, filled with happiness & the joy of the Lord! I have been getting a lot done & actually had a few things that I needed to do. So I have been holding out & buying few gifts as possible for my kids & walking by faith. Then I got a blessing of $350 & I was so excited, then of course a ticket my son got $50 so I was bummed that they wouldn't let me contest it but I will pay it. I also had to pay a portion of his graduation from high school fees. So then I went & picked out my new furniture set (just a couch & love seat) its gorgeous too. They delivered it & then my precious uncle sent me Christmas dinner and 2 sides!!

He actually purchased it through Honey Baked Ham Co. I got a ham, roasted turkey, assorted cheese cake (YUK!), side of green bean casserole & sweet potato souffle. I was out done!! Then we had our Christmas party at work & almost everyone exchanged gifts. We had breakfast: scrambled eggs, irish sausages, bacon, hash brown, did I say bacon? Blueberry pancakes, mimosas, orange juice & man was it good!! My boss handed us Jewel gift cards for $100! So I am not finished but then I get home BAM, my heat is broke. My pilot light is lite but its not producing any heat. So I put on a portable heater after trying to turn it off & on, checking the fuses (man, I am almost a do it yourselfer) I turned on the oven. The hubby came home & put to wires together & it was on like popcorn! God is good, I mean, I have been thankful but it does lend itself to a new meaning when you stand in need. I was a little put off that I didn't have heat but I came to myself thinking of all the homeless we have downtown Chicago. Leaving under Lower Wacker Drive not wanting to go to shelters & I thank God & prayed for them.

So it might be cold outside but I am blessed!

What are you thankful for this Christmas?!!

God bless you all & enjoy everyday!!

    If you're in Chicago and want to help the homeless guys, I know where they hang out!!! From when I drove a limo, I can tell you the exact location to leave food or stuff they will really appreciate it!!! It is an overhang on Franklin Street right under the Eisenhower Expressway. Literally under it. They all go under there with their sleeping bags. Occasionally the cops would come and kick them out but not that often.
Merry Christmas!!!

    If not for your son getting the ticket and your heater breaking down, it sounds like an awesome day! That was very nice of your uncle to send that food to you Dee! and I would love to work where you work! sounds like a lot of fun and the food they served sound delish! I am thankful for everything I have , I am very lucky. I feel bad for the people who are homeless or do not have it as good as I do. Have a Good day and keep up the awesome work! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
