Good Day Sparkfam!! Its been one of those last few weeks where I have been restless & tired. We are in the process of redoing our suite in our building at work. So I can't wear my 5inch heels, I have to be good & wear flats that I can possibly wash or trash after we are done. . .
So anyway, I have also been operating off less sleep so I need a little more of cause this work is tedious and repetitive. I am doing okay other than that. Well last night I was too pooped to pop but still need to put gas in my car, get a car wash & pick up a slice of cake for missing my co-worker birthday. So once I did all that & feeling like I might fall out at any minute I went home & cooked enchiladas for my family. It was really good I tried a little myself but its very fattening with the cheese, sour cream, milk & tortillas. I guess I could try to make them low fat cause we LOVE em! LOL
Fast forward to this morning, I get up watch Joyce Meyer on "forgiveness" & then got up to do my workout. I got ready for work & then decided on my way to stop at Target to get her a card & candle. As I get out of my car the soft sweet wind reminds me of vacationing in the Bahamas years ago with hubby. So of course, I call him & we talk about that & what else is going on. He asks if I have money? I say yeah I got a few. . . Well I was done & ready to pay at the register when....I can't find my wallet. I tell the cashier I need to run to my car. She rings it up & then voids & will hold it til I come back. Well I get to the car no wallet. I start my car cause it had better be at home.
Get home, turn off the alarm & I got nothin!! UGH!! So I go to the car to see if I missed. Still nothing. . .I go on my porch when I hear a thud & a scream. Well I look around & its a guy who has had a stroke, he loves to walk & walk for blocks with his 3prong cane up & down the city blocks. He fell in the snow & mud. So of course I don't see anyone close & he is always courteous, so its up to me. I go over & ask does he need help? YES!! So it took me 2 tries, I need to start the iron harder!! I should've been able to rip him right out of the mud & back on his feet like nothin. lol He thanks me profusely & heads on his way. I look around & he is already forgotten the fall & on the next block! Unbelievable!! lol
So I go back to the house & go inside, I call my hubby. Hey you know what? I lost my wallet. No you didn't. What are you sayin? Well, you left it in your car last night. I went out to get something from my car & it was there on the seat. WHAT?! So where is it? At home. DUH Where??!! You know where the island is? Yes. Well its in one of those drawers. UGH!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!!!!!! But I digress Sparkfam cause he saved my behind right? So I say, thank you very much! Cause guess what? I have nobody to blame but myself! lol
So I hope you found some humor in this blog. I'm still scratchin my head. . . .lol
Today, as far as my workout I did Total Body Sculpt & Tommy Deters Kickboxing & also walking. My food intake is well below what it should be but I'm drinking my fruit smoothie. Even though it taste like apple baby food. YUK! But I paid $3.50 for it so chug-a-lug. lol
God bless Sparkfam!!

Good Day Sparkfam! Its warmer in Chicago than it was yesterday but its still cold to me. This week I have been trying something a little different with my diet & fitness and it actually seems to be working. I was think about when I was young & I used to eat what I wanted but that is not true. I didn't half the stuff I eat now which lead me down this once upon a time road, when I was younger & healthier & 128lbs. I look at pictures of me during this time & I looked a hot mess! :) I needed a little weight on me but I actually ate breakfast at home, lunch at school & then dinner maybe. I didn't eat everything my mom made but we some times would go out for McDonalds, Burger King, Sizzlers & Ponderosa. The last two some of you may not be old enough to remember. lol They are few a far between how they used to be one every 20miles or close to a mall. Something like how Chili's & TGIFriday's are... Food everywhere is really killing us & if we don't learn to deny our flesh the pleasure every time to see a restaurant then how will be be, get or stay healthy? That's the new thing I have been trying, I am fasting once a week but I continue praying for clarity & strength from the Lord. It has really been putting my mind in a different place than thinking of food. I eat but I don't obsess about what I will eat or when I will eat & if I feel a hunger pane, I drink some water.
So once upon a time will now be in the not too far distance, I will have control over the junk food demons. Watch out its a trap!!!
I have a steady mindset when it comes to food & eat the healthier foods. Now I won't say that I won't indulge in snacks & treats but I will curb that habit of over snacking. I believe I was doing it wrong relying on my ability to eye ball food & know what a serving was/is but that was not the case either. I was eating a double portion & that's another reason why I have at the same weight. I wanna see what the results will be so I will be updating you the 1st of March on my results.
You guys are my gauge & my accountability partners in crime, so HELP!!
God bless & thank you letting me share!
