Enjoying Everyday....

Sunday, October 09, 2011

Good Sunday Sparkfam! Its an beautiful Sunday here in Chicago & Its a blessing to be in the land of the living. I am not feeling well but I still am filled with joy!

So since its been a long weekend filled with my son coming home from school this weekend, my hubby grilled, then I attended a wonderful funeral of my SIL's sister's husband. The homegoing ceremony was filled with tears & laughter, how can that be? He was a soul that brought joy into the lives of all he touched. He spoke on how he used to be & how he was transformed one day after coming into contact with Jesus. Oh how wonderous it was but even though it took all strength I had I went to the service. Then my husband and a group of men for Christ had a meeting at my office from 5-8pm, I was about to scream!!! I am glad that I could help them find a place to meet but at the same time, I just wanted to lie down. But then I remembered my day & all the joy I had felt & continued on enjoying every moment of everyday. Even when I don't feel a 100%.

So what are you doing to enjoy this day?!

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

He Helps In Everything. Your Brothernlaws Homegoing services sounds amazing. God is able to Give us ALL the comfort we need in times like these through the Comforter. emoticon

    Sounding like you had a time with the Lord. I love it when a funeral has Christ spirit abiding. That kinda sounds like my aunts funeral. Shoot that was not a funeral that was a holy ghost party. Folks were shouting all over the place. Now that is the kind of party I love!

When Do You Know?

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Good Hump Day Sparkfam! Its a gloomy & rainy day here in Chicago but you know what? Its still a blessed day! I've seen 2 rainbows this week & that's a promise from God that it won't be water but fire next time. I love this Spark motivational message!

You can sleep while you are dead! Life is for the living & if you believe this then go spend time with your family, friends or a co-worker who maybe in need of your support. Or you can get up & spend some time doing a good workout by walking, running, doing a class at the gym or a DVD at home. Life is for the living, so just do it!!

Did 30mins of endurance training this morning & wanted to do more but my day was calling me. Ate oatmeal, slice of toast, orange juice & milk for breakfast. Lunch pb&j on honey wheat w/milk with orange for lunch. For a snack had swedish fish & apple oh & a few rolos. lol Hey, I didn't say I was perfect. For dinner its baked chicken, broccoli & wild rice. I want to have a slice of bread with dinner but had enough starch already. Will focus on doing 30-50mins of cardio tonight. Too many treats & not enough tricks this week.

God bless you & take no offense to this blog! lol

Dee

  Dee, I agree so much that life is for the living and the active and the loving and the caring people.

You sound so full of life and love and that is just how we make our Lord happy because when we are walking in love we are imitating Him.

This life is an awesome life to be lived to the fullest till it over flows.

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.....

    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!

Dee

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!

Dee

    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!!
