I was bad BUT. . . .

Friday, January 06, 2012

Good Friday Sparkfam!

Its a gorgeous January day here in Chicago! I am liking that I don't have to let my car warm up but I am stocking up on water & canned goods for that 19inches of snow we gonna get. lol I have been doing my cardio & weight routine as schedule but I just can't stop being bad. Describe bad? Well last night we had a class & I ordered mexican food, this restaurant has the BOMB on guacamole dip!! It is so good that I had several tablespoons with a spoonful of sour cream & cheese with tortillas. It was so good but then I picked up Wendys for the boys & got me a small vanilla frosty. I don't have them often but I wanted ice cream & that's one of my soft serve favorites. So I didn't eat any real food after that & I didn't do my scheduled workout until this morning. I have been trying to eat healthy but save some room for snacks. This way I don't feel deprived. Its working out fine so far but if I start feeling chunky. Game over.

Tonight, I am doing 45mins of step aerobics & dance followed by 40mins of the treadmill. I have come to loathe that thing but once I put on a CD I start to enjoy it. I watched wife swaps the other night while I walked on the treadmill & was very entertaining. lol Those people do strange things for the $$$$. I guess my idea of strange & someone else's would differ greatly.

Dinosaur Dan with other exhibits & rides will be here this weekend & next, I want to take my grandson. He would go bananas!! Maybe I would too? We don't get out much & I used to take the kids to all the ice skating shows with Disney & circus. We used to have a great time. When my daughter was the only child we got invited to the circus & sat in boxed seats! That was such a great time for us.... That's when I knew people. Or should I say a different sort of people.... lol

So what was your downfall this week? Have you rebounded? Are you still feeling the effects? Then emoticon! Enjoy life everyday!

God bless,

Dee

    Great Blog Dee! I'm glad I don't like guacamole. But I'm a sweets eater but I'm doing much better since the holidays are gone for now. I normally cook a special dessert on MLK Day but I don't think I will. It last too long. But I'm working out strong and I WILL get 30lbs off! :) Or Else!
Happy Wed!

    That's one thing about hitting bottom.......there's only one way out and that's up. Glad you bounce back on track. Doing simple exercises and eating simple meals can lead us toward our goal of better health.

This was by far The BOMB BLOG!!!!!! I would say one of my favs! emoticon
WEll I hope you guys have Loads of fun this weekend, too!

So you had to go and ask those questions at the end huh Ms. Dee! And unfortunately I have done LOTS!
I don't know if it's because I'm starting a new weight loss class in about 2 weeks and the fact that food galore has been available to me this week, or what! But I have definately had several downfalls!
But I did get a good workout done at Physical Therapy!!! emoticonSo that's pretty good I think!

Okie-dokie! That's all. Love ya Ms. Dee & take care!
...so loved the flow of this blog! emoticon

    Hope you got in a walk today in our beautiful Chicago weather!! I rode the bike indoors this morning, but did get out for a 15 minute walk later this afternoon. It was so nice!

Don't loathe the treadmill! It is our saving grace during the winter months here! I can't live without mine, and I think it is so much better on the "old" joints (not that we are old - just realistic).

Have you tried Artic Zone ice milk? Not as good as ice cream, but you can eat the entire container and not feel guilty. And truly, you don't need to do that. My daughter brought over the chocolate and coffee flavors and it has helped satisfy some cravings this week! We found it at Sunset Foods in Lake Forest.

Have a good weekend - stay away from Wendy's!!! emoticon emoticon

    I'm loving this weather also! I just got back to Chicago from being in MI, and it was the perfect day to come back! emoticon on not being too restrictive on yourself. That usually doesn't work too well, anyway. emoticon

    Treadmill + iPod + plus a good movie is the perfect combo for me. I throw on my old school house music ( that only Chicago knows!) and hit it hard. I totally zone out in that mode.

Happy New Year Sparkfam!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Hey Fam! Its a beautiful day here in Chicago! This morning it was warmer but there is no rain & no snow, so party goers will enjoy the celebrations. Christians will enjoy watch services for those who have passed on & song & praise.... Which ever you choose be safe.

Today, I was busy finishing up the last of shopping for New Year's eve dinner celebration. Then I came home put the groceries away & began my workout All Star Workout's Kendall Body Sculpt workout. That was followed by Pilates Sculpt with 3-5lb weights & a good stretch. Oh back to the dinner this has become of the custom the kids & we really enjoy.

The menu was lobster tail, filet mignon steaks, twice baked potatoes, spinach & cucumber salad & asiago chicken with spinach. Of course we had a little libations but not tons of it. We also had garlic toast. Everyone is full & satisfied off doing their own thing.

They played chess & sorry (my favorite board game) and now they are playing computer generated games & with the tablet while they waited for dinner. My daughter, hubby & son came by as well & we really love it when we are all together celebrating together.

I don't really have a New Year's resolution but I did want to lose a few this year. So BAM there it is, I'm losing weight a few pounds this year. I also continue my daily resolution to be a better person at all times. It gets tough but as long as I keep that in my heart, it works most of the time. So what are you doing New Year's eve? Whatever you decide I pray you peace & joy.

God bless & keep you all. Happy New Year's Sparkfam!

Best Laid Plans....

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Good hump day Sparkfam! Everybody & their mothers knew I won these tickets to attend the aquarium but you wouldn't know from my kids. My youngest (14yrs) was sleepy & my oldest (18yrs) had a tummy ache so we couldn't attend. You know my internet has been down & I entered a trouble report, guess what? He called to say, I know we have an appointment tomorrow BUT I am right here so I'll take a look.

I am going to buy my own tickets & go with my hubby to the aquarium, he too was looking forward to it. This was really upsetting to me cause we kinda stick close to home during the Christmas holiday. I wanted us to do something different like being able to look behind the curtain at the Shedd. So goes the old adage, the best laid plans....

Thank you all for following me but I truly suck right now.

Today's workout was step blast 30mins, total body 30mins & walking 60mins. I might sneak on the treadmill tonight for 30mins. Trying not to take a break from my workouts.

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

    Well, shoot! Everything conspired against that outing to the Shedd. I hope you do get to go another day. We may run into each other there! One of my sisters is going to be visiting from California next week, & Wednesday or Thursday we'll probably go to the aquarium with our youngest (adopted) sister & her kids. So if you notice three tall Caucasian women with a short Latina with long dark hair & three rowdy little Latino kids, stop us & ask who is Ruth! Hopefully the staff won't be asking us to leave because we're noisy. Heehee.

I cannot believe how much you exercise!! Simply amazing.
