I Dragged. . . .

Tuesday, April 19, 2011


Good Tuesday Sparkfam! Its a rainy & cold day here in Chicago. Total contrast from the 10th almost 90degrees. They say what a difference a day makes so I guess it should be triple true for a week. lol Today, I didn't want to let go of my covers, I just laid around & then the hubby comes upstairs, I need to be at work in 45mins & I just made breakfast. I jump up spring into action & put his breakfast in a microwave safe dish. I put into the microwave & pressed 1minute. Then I since I'm up I might as well wash dishes & make pancakes for the boys. Well, I made me a mini pancake & it was so good with a small with a small piece of sausage. Oh I should note that I had a cup of raisin bran with skim milk. Well it was different lets just say that. Saturday, I actually tried Silk, now question, is that soy milk or what? So needless to say I got back into the bed & pull the covers up to my chin. I already started my day so why not get up & workout? Well Law & Order SUV was running a marathon on USA. I pressed pause on everything else around me & finally dragged by bottom out of the bed & did 40mins of Cathe Legs & Glutes to kick my behind in high gear. I really needed that workout & my legs are tightening up, yes l have cellulite but I thank God I have legs that are still in use! Amen! Tonight its 30mins of Jillian ripped in 30. I am taking walk breaks all day long & trying to complete the QFC for today.

God bless Sparkfam!

Remember its okay to drag but you got to get up & get started at some point. Is it in YOU??!!

YES IT IS! Lets GO!!

    I feel the same way also except i don't know how to stay in bed. I just cannot do it. My eyes open at 5am everyday. Once i rise my energy level rises also. I guess because i'm hyper so every day i stay busy, whether at work or home. But there's never a dull moment. You should see me on rainy days. I go through 3 books easily. But the thought of laying around is nice... emoticon emoticon

    Amen sister! There are days like that when you just don't want to move. I have to literally throw myself out of the bed. The time seems to fly since this time changed. So I'm trying to get everything I am supposed to do each day in. No matter what. And I take time to Rest. Peace and Quiet. Love it!

Congratulations on just doing it Dee and you are such an inspiration and a Great Motivator! Thank You for always having my back and encouraging me.

Have a Great Day!
Love ya!

    I used to hate it when it rained now I don't hate it so much. I put on some gospel dvd and dance. Rain will help out our gardens whom ever has one. Yesterday was was hot as ****. I dread the heat we have in the south east coast. Yuck. I like rain when it burning hott! My breakfast was one piece of toast, 1/2 pork chip with egg whites and tropical mixed fruit.I miss bacon so much but the turkey is full of salt. Crap!

    I feel the same as you do when it's raining. I don't have the energy or will power to do anything, We have been having rain for the past few days and today the sun is supposed to be out and temps in the 70's so I am SOOOOOOOO looking forward to that! Even though it rained for you girl, you had a great day and made awesome choices! PS.... I would have loved that breakfast as well! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Two Little Red Hens. . .

Friday, April 15, 2011

TGIFriday Sparkfam!! Because you guys are the best, I have a little guilt free treat for you:

Two Little Red Hens : Which is located in New York is a wonderful Upper East Side bakery. The cupcakes looked very delicious and got some amazing reviews. So I thought I would send them to my Sparkfamily for their support of me always. I think every now and again we deserve to eat the cake & buy those shoes! Which shoes?

Today, I ate raisin bran for breakfast w/1%milk with dannon blueberry yogurt. For lunch 2slices of ham on hawaiian bread w/a half slice of provolone cheese w/banana. For snack I had half bag of chips that were lingering in my desk drawer. For dinner baked chicken with broccoli & coffee as a snack a nature valley chewy trail mix fruit & nut bar. Outside of the nuts (almonds & peanuts) I really like the cranberries & raisins, so I tolerate the nuts. I know their supposed to be good for you but I like my nuts separately. Yes I am a crazy person! lol

This morning, I did Jillian 30 which was intense, walked 45mins, did the yoga I missed out on last night. Tonight Cathe's kick punch & crunch, as much as I can take before I literally pass out. lol

So what are you guys doing for the weekend? I'm renewing my CDL license, picking up a few groceries & trying to take the dog to the vet. Can hardly believe its Easter & remembering the true meaning for the season.

God bless & enjoy your cupcake. Whichever one you choose...

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!

Dee

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!

Dee
