Running out of food....

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Good Tuesday Sparkfam! It's a beautiful day here in Chicago. I would love to go for a walk on the lakefront but atlas I have to work. I have got to pay the bills or at least I think I do... I have been doing a lot better since I locked myself into doing my workouts which are FOR ME & ABOUT ME! If I want to see a change I do need to eat more fruits & veggies but I also need to workout cause the Spring/Summer has brought with it the crave for ice cream.. UGH!! So I did buy low fat but it's not sugar free. I am so not there yet guys... I admit I am a work in progress & always progress but with set backs. lol

The title today comes from my sons who are eating me out of house & home. No I do have food in the house but nothing prepared for dinner! On Sunday, I cooked 8pcs chicken thighs & a meatloaf. We had some spaghetti, greens, I made some sweet potatoes & warmed some grilled corn we had. Dinner for the past few days has been marvelous! Since my older son has been away for college, there has been more food to go around for the rest of us! Now Sunday dinner is almost gone except on piece of chicken a few slices of meatloaf 2pcs of sweet potatoes & some sweet corn I made yesterday. Now I have to think of dinner options? I have a headache & all I wanna do is catch up on my workout which I am behind in a little though. I need to do a session of both step aerobics & kickboxing for 45min & hit the treadmill. I did walk Sunday, yesterday & today for 30mins, this morning did step aerobics for 1hr & did a muscle endurance/boot camp mix for 1hr. Now I do need a nap but as my one workout instructor says, "You can sleep when you're dead." This I won't worry much but I try to get 6-7hours every night. Its tough cause my body is still moving & just doesn't want to rest some times but it catches up to me eventually. Then I am in the bed sleeping most of the day away to make up on a Saturday no less.

So since I need to expand my options for dinner once again in a short amount of time & I don't wanna do take out. Help me please Sparkfam!!

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

    headaches HBP will do that. It does not play fair. banana help for potassium. rest helps too. don't forget the purple potato helps with HBP. I am stepping on my own toes. Eat your colors. I start real soon practicing what I preach.

    I think Dede's idea is good--it IS healthful, & sounds delicious to me!

My eating is so different from your family's because my housemate & I are females in our 50s who love beans (which is fortunate since we both need to save $$) & hardly ever eat meat! But I did grill chicken thighs on Saturday & we're going to finish them off tonight. You might like this: I also grilled veggies (green, red, & yellow peppers; cherry tomatoes; mushrooms) on a grilling tray that has a rim all the way around so the little tomatoes don't roll off into the fire. Before putting them on the tray, I tossed them with extra virgin olive oil & some sprinkles of thyme & oregano, salt & pepper. They grill very quickly & are SO YUMMY!

Great way to get those emoticon emoticon emoticon in . . .

    Could you pickup a rotisserie chicken and cook peppers and onions for fajitas? Then avocado slices and grated light cheese, along with shredded lettuce & tomatoes? Might not be the most healthful, but it sounds pretty good right now!

Good hump day Sparkfam! It has been a minute but I did want to reach out & let you know I am around but my time is shorter. I pray you are all getting in some type of workout & adding a few fruits & veggies in the mix. I have bought 2 new DVDs on Amazon & Ebay Firm Kick Punch & Jab & Denise Austin Pilates For Everybody. I really like the Firm one cause it has some firming exercising in between the kickbox routine. The Pilates well, I don't think it gives me the most for my workout? I used to do a pilates workout that made me sweat & I was barely moving by the next day. I tried to read all the comments off of Collegiate website before my purchase but hey its decent.

My oldest son is home from college & my youngest gets out for the summer on Friday. Hopefully he has done all he needs to that he won't have summer school. He is so smart but he barely passes by the skin of his teeth. I don't know what to do? Any & all comments/suggestions are welcomed. I am going to try to hold downt the capitol punishment till I get some comments from you?! lol

My workout today was Cathe Imax 3 & she was fierce in this nonstop step routine with some pylo squats, jumps, hops I mean, she killed me. Then I tried to follow with Jillian but I just couldn't concentrate nor move. I will finish that one up following my workout tomorrow of legs & glutes & treadmill with Inhale Yoga.

Well its hump day & I am dancing like nobody/somebody is watching!!

    The brains of many young men don't develop a strong capacity for long-term thinking until they're in their mid-20s. So the awareness that doing the hard work of study now will open up great possibilities in the future is pretty dim, if not nonexistent. For some reason young women's brains develop more quickly.

Probably this is also why my car insurance agent once told me that for insurance purposes, girls are considered adults when they turn 21; but boys remain boys until they're 25 & married! If they stay unmarried, they're "boys" (with higher insurance premiums) till they're 30!! This is all based on accident statistics.

Parenting requires such patience!

You have emoticon exercise discipline! emoticon emoticon

  Good luck to you and your son. Don't ever give up on him. You have to let him know that you are behind him 100%. I know this from experience. I did'nt think my son would graduated. He joined a trade school , which was part of highschool and he found just what he needed. He went on to a college trade school on a full boat scholorship. He is now a machinist and loving every minute of it . Be proud of him and back him all the way . Good Luck emoticon

    Don't you LOVE it when your kids start becoming self-sufficient--& WANT TO? You have raised that boy right!

I am sorry for your friends' sad news. It's important to weep with those who weep but also to keep our eyes fixed on the One who loves them dearly, & us too. You maintain that healthy balance.

Hugs & happy Wednesday back to you!

Happy Mother's Day to all Moms!

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Good Day Sparkfam!! It's sunny then dreary then rainy Saturday but I have made my runs as I needed too. I got a few trinkets for a few friends who have held me steady & been great woman that are worthy of praise. It's difficult, to say the least, not having my mom around but I hear her all the time cause she repeated things, as moms do to make sure I heard her. Well, now I find myself doing exactly like her & it irrates my kids to no end but I find it rather useful. I hear people say all that time I wish I could hear this persons voice again but I have a tape recorder in my mind & I can hear her sing hymn after hymn after hymn. She had such a beautiful singing voice & it filled the sanctuary every Sunday. I am so glad for those times....I pray you all spend time with your mothers or women whom you will honor on Mother's Day. Also, don't wait for a particular day to honor or celebrate the ones you love.....give them their honor or flowers while they live.....EVERYDAY!!

Mother

M = Millions things that she gave me
O = That she's growing old
T = For the Tears she shed to save me
H = Her heart as pure as gold
E = Eyes with love light shining
R = Right & right she'll always be

Put them all together they spell Mother, a word that means the world to me....

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

May Day!!!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Happy May Day Sparkfam!

Got up early & did some quick cleaning before I went to work & then got here & planned my workout for tonight. I will be doing the treadmill, weights & kickboxing, will do treadmill while watching tv so I will make it a treat. Being on the treadmill is like watching paint dry but my body is definitely showing some of the benefits. I think I might be slimmed waist by June 15th if I can hang in there & not start relaxing...UGH!

God bless & enjoy everyday!!!!
