Enjoying Warmer Temperatures...

Wednesday, June 08, 2011

Good Hump Day Sparkfam! Its a beautiful but very hot & humid day here in Chicago. I am staying inside as much as possible to keep from getting a bad sun tan or overwhelmed. So I am combating this heat by eating lighter & healthier. So I ate a bowl of cereal, then a sandwich for lunch, I did have half a sweet role but I will have a cup of strawberries & a slice of watermelon for snacks. My dinner will be baked chicken with a salad. Will I eat ice cream or not? Its too hot to eat anything that will make me feel heavy. So its time to dance & enjoy this day. My son went on luncheon & I am having my porch painted since its in much need of some attention.

My workout today was tons of walking & doing some cardio for 45minutes. So how do you enjoy the warmer temps without falling out?? Remember to be safe, check on your older brothers & sisters & those who have illnesses as well.

Wish I were there. . . .

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

    Awesome that you still get out there. I have started taking a spray bottle out on my walks, filled with COLD water and spritz my face every once in a while to cool down!
I wish I could find the areosol bottles of mineral water I had years ago. Those were great for HOT days.

    Finally cooled off--what a difference, isn't it?? Yesterday morning I went out for a long fast walk with my hydration backpack--I need SO much water on those hot days! Last night I was out on the back porch potting herbs & flowers, & as I was cleaning up the wind starting blowing fiercely. The weather was changing right before my eyes. By the time I was at my computer doing some wind-down things, there was lots of thunder & lightning. Crazy!

Sorry I've not been over to say hi much. I'm going through some hard stuff in relation to the divorce, & at the same time work demands are pretty overwhelming. But God is good. I hope you're thriving!

    Good morning Dee! Hope your porch turns out great! We are going to get the house and garage painted but the guy is behind b/c of all the rain we had, so he should start within the next week or two! I stayed cool Weds by staying in with the air conditioner, it was too humid and miserable to be out. Keep up the great work girl! emoticon emoticon emoticon

The Good the Bad & the Better

Sunday, June 05, 2011

Good Sunday Sparkfam! What a beautiful day to be in the land of the living! Despite my aches & pains & the stress of two sons graduating from 8th & 12th grade, I thank the Lord I'm still alive!! WOOHOOO!! So yesterday I ate loads of junk food well what's loads to me: red vines, donut holes & Dots. I just sampled & sampled until I had a portion of all of them. So that was good but still bad.

Today, I am recovering, I ate my raisin bran with 1%milk, dannon blueberry yogurt, had 1serv of donut holes, orange juice & grapefruit juice. Dinner tonight will be salmon & baked chicken, corn on cob & sweet potatoes. Which is a lot better & healthier for me.

Today's workout is walking, jillian michael & push pull weight workout. What are you doing to be better today than yesterday?

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

    Happy Sunday sis! Yes I did say that prayer for your complete healing. But praying is an everyday thing for us. I have to stay motivated so I have to pray for my Motivators! Your dinner sounds yummy. Congratulations to your sons. I've been seeing Red Vines all over the place for $1. Tried to get my son to buy some instead of Twizzlers but he didn't think he would get the same taste. SMH. I didn't buy the grape that I really love. Trying to be Good! lol emoticon
Thanks for checking up on me. Get you some good rest. Enjoy the week!
Many Blessings and much love!

Ride or Satisfy the Crave. . .

Tuesday, May 31, 2011


Good Tuesday Sparkfam!! Its a beautiful but overcast day here in Chicago but I won't complain. Just last week, I had the heat on. . .Now its air conditioning I wish my house were more open & I could open the windows & allow the air to flow through. I don't like to ride in a car with air conditioning unless, its miserable outside. True. I take this warm weather & it melts the ice off my mustache in the winter. lol

So today, I wanted a vanilla frosty from Wendy's. So I went & got my small frosty & sm natural cut fries. I really enjoyed that & once I was done with that, I was full. I am still full right now. So my question to you is do you ride it out & drink water or do you satisfy the crave? Some times I just go without cause it will open up cans of worms I got no place to put em. So today, I was like you want that? Eat & be happy & guess what Sparkfam? I was happy! Even though food is not supposed to be eaten for satisfaction but out of necessity. Or is it?

Today, my workout was walking, playing with the day care kids (one whom locked me out! lol) & did 30mins of Total Body with Gilad. While I am at work I will do some body weight exercises to prepare for tonight I need to hit those abs & do some cardio. Tomorrow is National Run Day, are you going to run for 10seconds or 15minutes? I might get out there with my doggie Shadow & do the do early in the morning.

God bless & don't forget to stretch those muscles after you workout!

    It sure was a warm one in Chicago today. Only took the small dog for a short walk, but I went back out for a longer walk myself. Usually a glass of Crystal Light and an apple will take care of the craving. But I also like an occasional 100 Cal Skinny Cow Truffle Bar. Yummy. !!!! :) But I do find myself grabbing a few cookies or chips once in awhile. But I put in some extra time walking or on the treadmill as punishment for slipping. LOL

    I always keep sugar free popsicles on hand. I can not do ice cream it makes my sugar go up. Even frozen yogurt affects it negatively. Ice water and iced green teas.

Happy Friday. . . .

Friday, May 27, 2011

So we have made it to Friday Sparkfam & what are we planning for the holiday weekend? Will you take a few moments out of our busy bbq or meet & greets to remember our fallen heroes of wars past & present? I received an awesome email from my bud & co-worker & thought I would share with you guys to convey what I am trying to say:





ETERNAL
REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON
THEM.


So happy Friday & remember the true reason for this great Memorial Day weekend!

God bless you all!

Dee

Be Grateful . . .

Monday, May 23, 2011

Good Monday Sparkfam! Its a beautiful day here in Chicago with threats of storms & cooler weather but I am thankful for this moment right now. There is so much going on right now with the flooding, tornadoes in the midwest. Also with the wars going across the ocean, people are hurting, feeling abandoned & alone. We can help them by donating to the American Red Cross, we can donate our time to local area Red Cross and be a blessing to others. I am feeling the pain of others but I am also grateful for the many blessings I have in my life & I ask you also to be grateful as well.

Me, I'm grateful hubby, sons & daughter, sil & grandson, healthier, my home my doggie Shadow, my family & friends, my sparkfamily & my job. I go up & down some times like other people but I prefer to be up.

God bless & what are you grateful for today?!
