Hump Day

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Good Day Sparkfam! Its Wednesday & these are the best days of the week, Weds, Thurs & Fri. To me the weekend flashes by so fast with errands, shopping & cleaning & trying to find rest & church Sunday & time with family. So this is like the cruise control day of the week for me. I am bouncy today or fidgety tonight will be upper body & kickboxing while I get up every so often & walk my body. I only get once & I try to take care of it but I know that I fall short or else *I would be at goal right now.

Today, was a big breakfast of grits, scrambled eggs (tsp for me) slice of bacon, sausage & toast w/butter & jelly. I got to work, someone brought donuts & I had one, then I had my apple, then we got a small snack size of jelly beans & I ate that. I brought chili for lunch with crackers but the sodium will put me over my 2300mgs. So I opted out of the chili after being snack happy & am eating a beautiful salad with red onions, tomatoes & cucumbers & a pepperchino. I think I spelled it right but its delicious & I was good & bypassed the pizza. Although I did have some of the chicken off the cesar salad. Tonight & baked chicken w/broccoli. Exercise to follow after I digest & am ready to jam!

What have you turned down lately to choose to your health?

God bless & dance like nobody is watching.....

    Sounds like you have done great! I haven't avoided anything to be honest, been eating my emotions a lot lately.

    Today I turned the snickers topped brownies and the rice krispie treats at work. Yesterday it was the super-chocolaty almond joy cake, again at work. Oh, and someone brought a coffee cake from Panera. Ugh! Not being able to quantify how much is in that stuff, how much one serving is, etc. is motivating me to not have it. I'd rather allow myself half of a twinkie if I really craved because at least I can count the calories, fat, etc.

I have also avoided Starbuck's, whose frappaccino's I love.

Happy Monday..

Monday, September 19, 2011

This is how my Monday started out Sparkfam but it actually went well. I made it through & I'm so glad about because I do have bp & still not at goal but I'm still in the land of the living. My friends that a blessing beyond measure especially when I think of the goodness of the Lord I am overwhelmed in the most excellent way. I am not as excited about my job as I used to be but if I lost it our household would suffer a great deal. So I am again blessed beyond measure & if I named all of the blessings that I receive on a daily basis I would overload Spark's systems. lol

So I celebrate the small things & I am humbled by the even bigger blessings. We are all going through right now but if you have most of your health & capabilities you need to say, "thank You Lord!"
I am eating decently, oatmeal for breakfast even though my pantry was lean due to not going to grocery store Saturday. I went today & I still forgot jelly. DUH! For lunch I campbell's roadhouse chili, spinach salad with golden italian dressing (YUMMY!!!) Tonight will be chicken breast or baked chicken thighs with rice & broccoli. I did have a banana & sunflower seeds for snacks but the 2chocolate chip cookies held me from overeating along with a serving of red vines. Tonight I am going to get my ab groove on & kickboxing.

So what are you grateful for?!!

God bless you all & enjoy everyday!

Mojo back....

Friday, September 16, 2011

Good Friday Sparkfam! Its a brisk day here in Chicago & I hopeful that we will have a few more days of summer in the next few months. I chickened out & turned on the heat last night. I was under2 comforters & pj's & I was still freezing. Maybe I was getting sick? Regardless of it all I am doing great today! I had a McDonald's Sausage Egg (scrambled) Egg McMuffin with coffee for breakfast. Thats okay cause I need that in order not make even worse decisions at lunch time today. The poached egg is supposed to be better for you healthwise but feels like I am egg chewing gum. YUK!!

So my motivation has been in & out the last few weeks. Especially since I am keeping my 4yr old grandson 3nights a week. I've been searching workouts to see if something would jolt me back into my 45-90mins of 5days a week workouts. I got nothing my old shoes have been killing me so I thought new shoes. Here are pictures of kicks:

I guess Kim Kardashan wears them too?! Whatever! I got them so that I could boost my output. I got the first shipment & the bottom of the shoes were dirty, I sent them back. They sent out another shipment & I love em!! I just want sprint into action!

As you can see from the picture I need some help in all those areas. lol This morning got up & did Gilad even though I wanted to just stay & lay in bed. So for now that are giving my mojo back. Or at least I think they are & some times thats all you need in this weight loss arena.

God bless & enjoy everyday Sparkfam!

    I feel a cold snap in the air also. My mojo is going strong but my eating is the pits. LOL. I am drinking green tea and I love poached eggs but I have to be careful of the cholesterol in them. Oatmeal should help with that. Stay warm!!

How was YOUR Sleep? emoticon Getting Good Sleep is Pro-active for our hearts too according to Health News I read yesterday. So if we don't get enough sleep it is counter productive. emoticon

Many Blessings to You!

Sending Flowers.....

Friday, September 09, 2011

Good Friday Sparkfam!! I made it! That's no biggie since I didn't work on Monday or Tuesday. lol Next week is going to be a beast! My son will take the bus a couple of days & I will pick him up one or two days & then return to work. It could work maybe? Well my oldest son won't be home til Thanksgiving & that's okay but I might be nice & send him a ticket in October if he wants to come home by then. My daughter gave me a beautiful plant & I had to bring it to work to share it with my co-workers. I wish I had a clearer picture cause its so beautiful it doesn't look real. Now how will keep it alive will be the lick?

Today's workout was Gilad, Jillian & Kickboxing 30mins each. I might have to throw in a few minutes of abs. I have been neglectful of that area lately.

God bless & give someone you love a hug or give them flowers TODAY!


Do the happy Friday gig!! WOOHOO!

    I think the orchid is pretty easy to keep alive. There is one at my hair salon and she says they 'water' it with 3 ice cubes each week...and that's all it takes. Any more than that and it will be too wet, less and it is too dry...nice tip. It's gorgeous! I hope it lives a long time for you. Karen

    Oooh, it's an orchid, isn't it?! Just gorgeous! My therapist has one sitting on her table & I admire it every week.

Yay, happy Friday dance! Have a lovely weekend!
