Happy Tuesday. . .

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Good Day Sparkfam! Well it has been an almost healthy day for me today. I dragged myself up from my bed & did Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30DVD I'm on week #2. Surprised I haven't quit cause I hate to do the same workout everyday but its good training for the workouts to come.

Here is a break down of the food I ate & will eat tonight for dinner. I will try to get in 30more minutes of Zumba or kickboxing. I need to burn some serious fat. lol

Oatmeal milk & 2pcs of honey wheat toast
Morning Snack:
Yogurt & apple
Campbell's Soup & Rice
Salad w/tomatoes, red onions & cucumbers
Wild rice
Baked Chicken
A fork full of beef short ribs
Wethers Carmel candies
Mini Reese cups

I told you guys it was an almost healthy day & also I added cream butter & sugar to that oatmeal. Oh & butter on the toast. Old habits die hard. lol

God bless & Happy Tuesday!

Here's To Your Health. . . . .

Monday, March 28, 2011

Good Monday Sparkfam!!! Its a brisk day here in Chicago but the sun is shining like its 60 degrees outside. I am patient being a spring baby knowing that we often jump straight from wintry weather 37-49 degrees straight to 61-75 degrees. We used to have indian spring but now it is what is. So everyday should be a day that we consider our health & I was wondering what are you doing today to keep yourself healthy? Today, I started to bring a half sandwich or should I say an open face sandwich but instead I brought the half eaten wendys chili & a 6oz yogurt. I saved myself on sodium & fat by just switching out the sandwich. I had a pancake for breakfast & sausage so I did eat like a king for breakfast. More like a queen for lunch but tonight I will be dining on rainbow trout, broccoli & a baked chicken wing. Although I am planning what to eat right now, its often subject to change.

Also while I am at it let me just say:

Even though I sat straight up this morning with my bible & Joyce Meyer I was prepared to give myself 30-45mins of fitness. I used to do 60-120minutes of fitness but with spring coming so early I am doing 45-60mins in the morning & if I have time in the evening doing another 30-60mins. I deserve it & I am seeing some toning. Not like overnight but gradual changes. I have many events coming up this year but I want to do this for myself my health & this will trickle down to my son. I have been idle too long but now its time to put into action all that I have learned & prove to myself that I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me!

God bless Sparkfam!!

Dance like no one is watching . . . . .

Do You Zumba?

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Good Hump Day Sparkfam! Its a cloudy day here in Chicago but my sense of humor or smile has been helping over all that. I have worked out for 60mins & now I'm getting my 30-45mins of walking breaks in today. Its a day to dance as it is everyday but today because its hump day & we made it over. I love my job but some times its a chore to get here but once I am here I can stay all day. Not really but I could stay til later in the evening.

Today I wanna Zumba! I really enjoy it because its like a praise & worship dance. Without all the gyrations though. lol I was just wondering how many of you Zumba? I love the flow & I'm toning up & losing weight in the process too. You should always dance like no one is watching. I have to let you know that I don't actually own a Zumba dvd, when the promo comes on I do it with the infomercial. I just feel like I can dance by myself but one day I will own the collection. lol

God bless Sparkfam!

    I love Zumba and I am so happy that I have a great, no, awesome instructor. Lately the music has been stuck in my head and I find myself dancing the bathroom, bedroom or wherever. I recently purchased the Zumba Wii and burned 600 calories. I was impressed because I didn't think I would like it as much as I did, but I do!

Hope you are enjoying your company if they are still there.

How To Stay Young . . . . .

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Good Thursday Sparkfam! Just thinking of a few ways to add years to my life & I know laughter definitely works! Let's laugh together!! WOOHOO!


1. Try everything twice.

On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:

"Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!"

2. Keep only cheerful friends.

The grouches pull you down.

(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning:

Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever...

Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'

And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud.

Laugh until you gasp for breath.

And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,

spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.

6.. The tears happen:

Endure, grieve, and move on.

The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.

LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love:

Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever..

Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:

If it is good, preserve it.

If it is unstable, improve it.

If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips..

Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county,

to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

I love you, my special friend.

11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance..

Remember! Lost time can never be found.

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Wine does not make you FAT ....

it makes you LEAN ....

(Against tables, chairs, floors, walls and nice people.)

God bless & Have a great day!

    I LOVED IT!! How are you Dee? I'm hanging in there with a vengeance! Glory to God. I'm printing this for my office. A daily reminder that I have one life to live and I have to LIVE like it! You really hit the nails on the head today. We have to let go and move on. Enjoy everything because the Lord has so much more than what you left behind. Because if we are always lookin back, we cant appreciate the view and blessings ahead.

Keep Sparkin
