O My Guacamole. . . .

Sunday, February 12, 2012

Good Day Sparkfam! It warmed up very well today but yesterday was freezing! Well, I didn't get to church today. I did listen on the radio & listen to many uplifting songs on the radio. It is nothing like real service but I enjoy anytime I can spend in praise & worship.

I have been afraid to try to make guacamole but today I got up enough courage to do it. I mean, I tasted one from the catering company & it was so good that I want it all the time. Unfortunately, I think it is too expensive to that. I don't like the dip you buy from the stores cause it just doesn't taste right. So I felt like having some dip today & went ahead & made it. It was actually decent but got better once I followed a few tips from others on the site. I felt really good about it. I wanted to post a picture but my computer is not allowing me too.

I was watching grammy awards & glad to see some of the winners like Adele & Chris Brown. I think it was the best one since Michael Jackson did a performance on the show. I think it showed loads of promise until Nicki Minaj performed. What was that?! I didn't know much of the music as I don't listen to much secular music anymore. I love this one song I think its a country song but can't remember the title? Ditzy me...

Well, I will have to pay forward my weight work as I have been busy making breakfast, washing & making dinner. Hubs is still out of commission. Hopefully he will find something from today to eat while he is at home this week. I made baked chicken thighs, baked potatoes, shrimp fried rice & chili. I know its a weird mix but he got weird taste.

Time to get some sleep.....

God bless Sparkfam & enjoy this week.

    I love guacamole, but have never tried to make it. I did however buy an avocado and put it on my egg sandwich. Yum. Then I found a recipe on dr. oz that used avocado, tomato, swiss cheese with an egg on a whole wheat english muffin. It's supposed to be a belly blasting breakfast. I don't have any avocados, but I am going to try and eat the sandwiches this week. emoticon

    Guacamole is amazing. I'm glad you attempted homemade. It's worth it and much better than store bought!

    Homemade guacamole is yummy--yay you! I don't think I've ever tried making it.

You did a TON of cooking yesterday! If your hubby can't find something good to eat with all those foods in the fridge, he's got a problem. emoticon

Dang, this weekend was cold. I was in St. Louis & hadn't taken my warmest coat, because the forecast had said highs close to 40. It was WRONG! Because it was so chilly we ended up spending most of our time at my son's home instead of going out. Which was just fine--lots of fun with my little Bea.

Happy Monday! I'm sure you'll make up the lost exercise time--you exercise more than anyone I know!

    I love homemade guacamole. The stuff you buy in the store just doesn't taste quite right. Too bad you couldn't post a picture, as I like food photos. Best wishes to you on your journey!

Keep Humpin.....

Wednesday, February 08, 2012



Good Hump Day Sparkfam! I had a somewhat interesting day, I had a few dips in my day but I tried to keep my emotions on an evil kilt. It was tough but I am trying to live victoriously. Some times it works fine but then there are times when I am all over the place.

I did wake up & gave myself 50mins of fitness, I did 30mins of step blast & then cooled down. I was still sweaty but dressed appropriately to take Shadow on a walk. By the time I was cooling down he was whining a little. I knew it was time....

I am watching Royal Pains right now but about to get up & do the treadmill. I ate too much junk food this week. I had loads of guacamole, chips, honey buns & enchiladas.So tomorrow I am doing kickboxing trying to burn some of the fat from super bowl, can this be done? No, I need to focus & move on.... lol

What did you eat this week that has got you humpin?

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

    Hormones seem to be wreaking havoc with many of us this week! Yesterday's lunch was a personal size Pizza Hut cheese pizza from Target while baby shower shopping - rushing to get back to a meeting and not being in the mood for the healthy lunch I had back at the office. It tasted great going down, but did not agree with me the rest of the day! Was it punishing me?? Made sure I had a healthy vegetarian dinner! Too many extra glasses of wine this week....not enough sleep, not enough exercise....

Ouch - sound like I better get back on track as well!! Goodbye emoticon emoticon Hello emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Doesn't exercise help us deal with the ups & downs? What would we do without it?!! Maybe become violent!

On Sunday I went to a meeting with a bunch of Colombia women (I'm the token "gringa"), & we were each given a little bag of candies--chocolates & a couple of Colombian treats. I knew it was not a good idea but I did it anyway: I ate them ALL that same day! That's what has me humpin'.

Today I ate lunch at Grace African Restaurant in Uptown; it's Ghanaian food & was SO GOOD!! Fried fish, spicy beans, fried plantains, & a little tomato-green pepper-avocado chop salad. (I hardly ever have fried food, so I just thoroughly enjoyed it & didn't feel guilty.) A woman who was waiting to order came over to me & said, "It's so nice that you came here to try our food! Have you ever had African food before?" I said yes, a few times, & once I ate at a specifically Ghanaian restaurant in DC & loved it. She was so happy that she gave me a hug! I guess not very many non-African folks eat there--I'm going to recommend it to my friends so they get more diverse customers.

I have some leftovers for my lunch tomorrow, which makes me very happy. emoticon

Rotating.....

Monday, February 06, 2012

Good Monday Sparkfam! Its a brisk day here in Chicago but me & my family fun on Super bowl Sunday. We ate enchiladas, hot & chili lime wings, cheese pizza, cinnamon rolls & so on but we didn't eat it all at once. We ate dinner but then tasted a little of this & that. None of us had favorites in the game but I do like Ocho he is SUPER funny to me.

Anyhow, hubs is recuperating from rotator cuff surgery from last Thursday. He is such the baby but I have to be patient & help. I am going to need therapy after this cause he is the WORST patient EVER!!! I pray for patience & peace & also to be a more loving wife too. lol This man is total outrageous when he is sick & I get so upset & he says stuff that is supposed to funny but is quite offense. I have to remind of this all the time. My job is being quite understanding & giving me the time off I need. My boss is the BEST ever!! She told me that take all the time that I need. My manager of course is counting my vacations & whenever I leave early. All the while I make up any time I leave early often staying late to make up time. I have always been allowed but things can get pretty sticky when others come into power. I just pray for patience & the the Lord guide & my mouth. I can be rather slick with my tongue but I choose to stay in good spirits & laugh & smile, it keeps me wrinkle free. lol

So I am doing weights tomorrow & step aerobics for exercise tomorrow. What are you doing for you today?

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

    Oh girl I am sorry my is a rock his arm could be torn off and he would still try to move. I have to tie him at times. Hope your hubbie makes a full recovery! emoticonBook of james speaks of the tongue. I have to review it often.

    You do have amazing patience. Tell hubby if he keeps blurting out offensive things you're going to turn on an audio recorder & embarrass him with it later! emoticon When I consulted a surgeon about my rotator cuff injury, he said if he did surgery I'd be back to work in 3-4 days--is that what hubby is looking at? (I ended up doing PT instead of surgery, & it allowed surrounding muscles to make up for the little tear--I have good mobility & no pain.)

My main exercise today was a fast walk around the neighborhood first thing in the morning; on the way home I stopped at CVS to pick up some things. You're a saver so you'll appreciate this: what with a Groupon I bought, plus a coupon & some in-store specials, I ended up getting it all half off. emoticon

Have a great day, Dee! emoticon

    Hey there girl,
That must be very hard taking care of your husband, but that is so good of you to do so. I am sure that he appreciates it a lot, despite the offensive jokes. Is he knocked up on pain killers?? Maybe that is why, people do strange things on medication. When I had surgery a few years ago my friend told me after when she was taking me home I kept saying the nurse had stolen my health card hahah.

I hope you can still have a good week.

Get in Line.....

Wednesday, February 01, 2012


Good Hump Day Sparkfam!! I must make a confession: I went out to meet my brother at a party where he was the dj & fell in love with the new slide dances that they are doing. They remind me of the electric slide & shuffle line dances. They are a little bit more complicated to do so I am watching on youtube to get the foot work down so I can add them as exercise. Level of difficulty is HIGH! I love of all them but would I go to the club to do them probably not but the next summer bbq spring fling it's gone be on & poppin! lol Copy the link & place in browsing if you feel like pumpin it up or you have fancy footwork? With these I see to have 2 left feet that apparently meet somewhere in the middle. lol

j8&feature=endscreen

Today got up early, cleaned bathroom, fed dog, gave him fresh water then did my workout. Its the 1st of February so I am bringing it! I did step aerobics for cardio & did 30mins of legs & gluteus. I need to do some more cardio & extra upper body work, like dips & push ups. I really am trying to keep up with my exercising. I didn't do too bad on food today, I had 2TBSP guacamole dip with sour cream & 10chips with a small side of chicken enchiladas. It was so good especially since I didn't have breakfast. I wasn't that hungry so it was okay, I drank plenty of water to keep myself hydrated.

So its hump Wednesday & the dancers are ready so get in line & do the slide! Whichever one you like & don't forget to add it to your workout today. lol

God bless & make it happen!

Dee

    Thanks for the link--that looks like GREAT FUN! I would definitely demonstrate extra left feet on it, but I would love learning the steps in the privacy of my living room. emoticon

You are so amazing with exercise! I had a wonderful brisk walk today, taking advantage of the warmer weather.

    Yes I am having a great weekend, me and my hubby went on a awesome 2 hour walk to Lake Perris.

In the past I thought I had to impress everyone else, now I know I only have to impress myself and with every workout and every food choice i'm impressing me.

You and you hubby have a great weekend.

    All that exercise--good for you! I'm glad you & hubby are taking the evening for yourselves; way to nurture the relationship.

As for impressing? Probably nobody at the moment, as I'm just plugging away & not always making my goals. Dealing with hard stuff, I'm not expecting too much of myself. I know God understands & always loves me.

Glad to hear you have made up. My DH and I have had our spats over the years (almost 37) that we have been married.

In answer to your question "who are you impressing"? Me! I have been on many journeys to lose the weight and this is the longest I have perservered I find that impressive.
