On Cloud Nine. . .

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Good Tuesday Sparkfam! What a beautiful day it is in Chicago! Mind you its not the almost 90degrees we had on Sunday but I will take the sunshine with 60degrees any day too. So my birthday was yesterday & its been pretty good. I did Fridays on Saturday with my son & hubby. They sang Happy Birthday & I got my brownie w/ice cream covered in walnuts. YUK!! I forgot to ask them not to put nuts on it. It ruined it for me cause I was spitting out nuts with every spoonful I ate. My oldest son was out at a track meet & my daughter was running around preparing for Sunday. We went to Enchanted Castle which has games, bumper cars & laser tag. Me & hubby played games & my grandson won a 12inch bike. Mind you he isn't but 3feet tall & can't peddle on his bike yet!! He has BIG dreams & I won't take that from him. lol

I got nice cards, everybody phoned or sent me text messages & I got a memories charmed bracelet.

I do like to pick out my own gifts normally but my hubby is clueless when it comes to picking out gifts for me. Heck, I didn't know what I want but I am not into buy a bracelet that you have to continually buy more trinkets for it. So I will have to tell my hubby not to buy anymore for it. They charms at J.B. Robinson go from anywhere $24.99 to $49. Are you kidding me! I have to sons that I have to get ready for graduation & I need to be spending almost every dime I get on them. Well I can buy me a few new summer shoes & jeans but that's all I'm saying. I know I sound ungrateful but its not something I would buy for myself. Most of my gifts I like that they be something I would've bought. Oh well. Got to work & got a pair of earrings & illuminator from my co-worker. My other 2 co-workers got me a coffee cup that I can carrying my coffee in & a lunch pail. Its so cool cause I stack my sandwich, fruits & veggies all separately!

So I am feeling a little antsy but I am truly blessed on my birthday!

God bless & celebrate everyday!

Rise & Shine. . .

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Good Day Sparkfam!! Its a beautiful day here in Chicago with the sun shining & a 40% chance of showers later but I won't worry about that. The sun is warm & I will show up & face this day head on. I did got up with a word from the Lord with Joyce Meyer for my soul. Then rejoiced & did Jillian this morning & had raisin bran with 1%milk. I trying not to over do my caloric intake so that I can soon see some results. I know I should be probably eating total raisin bran but I'm not there yet. I will have a turkey on honey wheat toast for lunch & a spinach salad with balsamic vinegar. For dinner grilled chicken & spaghetti. I know that my spaghetti packs a punch with sauces & bbq sauce so I try to hold back. Oh did I say I didn't use whole grain pastas? Oh well, you live & learn & I'm so on board for living. How bout you? Did you rise up & see the sun shining & faced the day with a smile to all those you love? Or did you drag out of bed & had to have a cup of coffee to get you ready for your day? Either way, it starts & ends with you, show up for the rest of your life on a daily basis.

On another note, I got a rose yesterday from a co-worker & that really made my day. When I got home my best friend rang the bell with her hands full of a purple pillowcase filled with a 27 in flat screen tv. Maybe I didn't tell you my tv in my bedroom is on the fritz so I wanted to buy hers but she wouldn't hear of it & neither would I. So I have a brand new gently used tv! emoticon I dressed up for work today cause I just didn't feel like wearing another pair of jeans. So I get to work & there's a box under my desk. Grumpy old me is like who in the world put the box under my desk is gonna get it. Well, I got to beautiful pothos plants one in beautiful orange planter. So I'm gonna get it! lol So then my co-worker bought us a dozen roses & she split them with me. So I am surrounded my light & life today & what a way to bring in my birthday month. My day isn't until the 11th of April but boy oh boy, do I feel so blessed to have beautiful people that think of me & spread love all around. I'm gonna breathe cause if I get anything else, I am gonna cry. . . .

God bless & enjoy everyday Sparkfam!

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!
