Good Hump Day Sparkfam! What a gorgeous day it is here in Chicago! I mean, I turned the heat off in my truck but its nice & warm in there. Its like 60degrees & the sun is shining. I need a car wash & wax well I need a good detail done on my truck. lol
Like the blue people above I am jumping. I am jumping over the hump slump I have been in since November. I mean, I moved around but nothing like I am now. I really lost that time to workout that I can not get back but there is no time like today. So I got up & did Cathe Supersets & did 30mins of her Rhythmic Step. She does too much twirling & I can't stand that. Did I tell you guys I get dizzy pretty easily? Well I am afraid of heights so I guess they some times go hand & hand. Oh I also get motion sickness. If I am in a car or on the bus & they stop & go too much, I have to throw up. Its just who I am. lol
Back to the blog though, I am feeling really hyped so I am going home to do a kickboxing session & I also got a date with Jillian. I missed my workouts yesterday because we went out to dinner. I didn't do bad but I ate my sweet potato fries & my sons fries & I had 2 of his ribs. I also bit off my insane chicken sandwich with bacon & onion rings. OUCH! I am not gonna let it get me stuck in another rut I am going to keep on moving.
I went back to very beginning of my joining Spark trying to infuse what I learned then with what I know now. I ate everything I didn't give up many of the foods I eat but I cut way back & I had a snack or two everyday. Here's a preview to what I ate one a day when I was heavier:
1 pancake w/butter & heavy syrup
1 c. of raisin bran
1 c. whole milk
4-5 cookies - lol
2 slices of white bread
3 slices of turkey
3 slices of ham
Peanut butter cookies
Oil popped popcorn
I was actually losing with this program! Can anybody tell me what's wrong with this meal? Well, the frosty & the pancakes & cookies for breakfast, how was I losing? Well, I had insane workout program & once I implemented this workout, I started to eat better. Now above shows how I gained the weight. Now I need to add more fresh fruits & veggies, lean meats & more water & I am on my way.
Are you jumping over your hump?
God bless & enjoy everyday health!

Good Friday Sparkfam!! Its a beautiful warm day here in Chicago. I like it so much better than the rain but I can say I am seeing my plants come & grass grow in areas I normally need to dig up & put down plenty of seeds. I should've through the seeds down back in March. . . Oh well, its quite alright.
Today, I enjoyed doing Cathe's Power Hour & then I did Gilad. Tonight I need to get in my kickboxing session. I am really on a roll but I don't want to get too caught up in exercising to not be able to have fun & enjoy my family & friends & life. So when you are in the correct heart rate zone, burn Baby burn!!
God bless Sparkfam & have a wonderful weekend!

Good Thursday Sparkfam! I am having a wonderful day here in Chicago & I am feeling really amped up! I didn't much sleep breaking my own beauty rule about getting enough of: water, fruits, vegetables and all important sleep. Not rest but really deep sleep. I had my grandson last night cause my daughter is finish up her degree at DePaul U. Well she has a late class so this our time to spend together. He stays up as long as the tv stays on. So I forgot this & thought put on something boring, no luck. He finally ran out of gas around 1am. So I got maybe 4.5 hours of sleep. I was sluggish waking up but I got up & whispered a few prayers & watched Joyce Meyer & then did my 45min workout with the Firm. I thought it was easier but its fast paced & they change up every 3-5mins. Well I did & I am so glad because I am so worth those perfect size 8 jeans. I think a size 6 would mean loss of lower back fat or junk in the trunk. lol
I would rather have one rose and a kind word from a friend
while I'm here, than a whole truck load when I'm gone .
These Are For You !!!
Don 't you know the phrase ..
'Stop and Smell the Flowers' ???
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing,
But .... Only Friends ....
Keep You Going !!!
With so much going on in the southern part of the country, I am giving my Sparkfam flowers. Pray without ceasing cause so much is going on everywhere & we need to stay prayed up. I have been getting flowers & plants since the first week of April & now I am surrounded by a dozen longed red roses. I also got a floral bouquet for myself & I did share with my co-worker. So I think it is only fitting to share also with my other loved ones. . . . . You are always in my thoughts because you are always here for me when I need to be picked up.
God bless you all today!

Happy Easter Sparkfam! So I woke up early like 3:12am & couldn't get back to sleep, I tried to go back but I got nothing. Once up & ironed the boys shirts & suits then tried to visualize my own outfit. I just couldn't get moving. Once I finally did, I ran & got to church. Service was lovely. The worship praise & the sermon were all on point for the celebration of the Resurrection of Christ. I have to be honest but at the end of service they had speeches for the little children but I was so sleepy that I couldn't stay. So I left I had my nephew & his daughter & my daughter & her husband & my grandson.
Once home I immediately turned on the stove & got the chicken out of the frig. After starting the chicken, I started the greens & boiling my sweet potato for pie. Then I cooked corn bread for my turkey stuffing. Then after getting all that started my nephew states he is so hungry, he ate a hostess twinkie & then he ate a large bowl of alphabits. He wanted to know when they started making them again. Yeah, they had stopped making fyi but then they started again. So anyway, I got almost everything ready & the put the ham on of course after turning the stove down. I told my nephew that I had to get dinner ready but he wasn't listening to me. I didn't do anything except shop for church clothes yesterday. I was fit to be tied. Dinner was really good. Have you ever heard the saying, "she put her foot in it." Well I almost put most of it on the floor. My birthday gift kept grabbing the pans. I had to take it off or else risk dinner. Everybody thought the food was delicious & after taste testing it all, so did I. I like to have a nice dinner on Easter we really enjoyed ourselves & my last guests just left & its 10pm! You know I like to be in bed on Sunday night around 9:15pm. I gave my being antisocial & just let go of my inhibitions. I did pretty good.
So reflection, He arose on the third day, got up with ALL power in His hands. He set the captives free. Are you saved? If not, then accept Him as your Lord & Savior & get in a good bible base church.
God bless & Praise Him!
