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!

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

Breakfast:
Oatmeal milk & 2pcs of honey wheat toast
Morning Snack:
Yogurt & apple
Lunch:
Campbell's Soup & Rice
Salad w/tomatoes, red onions & cucumbers
Dinner:
Wild rice
Baked Chicken
Yams
A fork full of beef short ribs
Snack:
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!
