Humpin...

Wednesday, June 27, 2012



Good Wednesday Sparkfam!

What time is too late for coffee? I am really in need of some but I just don't want to be up all night. Don't even offend me with any ice coffee either! lol I want a cup of joe but I don't want to be jittery either.

Safe to say that today was not humpin but I was jumpin! I had to run around like a chicken with my head wobbling all over. I am so glad that this day has ended I am leaving a few minutes early. Tomorrow I might just take half a day or come in early so that I can leave early? Some how it will work itself out.

My workout is suffering this week so I hope that tomorrow it will pick up for me.

What do you do seem to have misplaced your hump?

If you see mine can you tell it I am looking for it. lol
God bless,

Dee

Happy Friday.....

Friday, June 22, 2012



Good Friday Sparkfam!! It's been a huge week for me. I forgot my big brother's bday & basically didn't want to do anything for Father's Day. Although my hubs is not my dad he still gets a kick out of gifts but my heart was with Trent. My brother was really upset about it. I will have to make it up to him probably with a visit to his home. lol

I haven't been keeping up with all my workout but hope to start a new tomorrow & hitt it hard!!'

How was this week for you? Did you eat healthy & get workouts in too?

God bless & Happy Friday!!

Dee

    He'll forgive you, it was an honest mistake. Yes, a visit sounds great!

You will get back on track. It was a great week for me, I just hope I can keep this up. I am trying to pace myself so that I don't burn out. My eating is getting better and for the most part I am staying on track.

Taking it one day at a time is how I keep my sanity!

Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend. emoticon ~ Dee

Rocks in the tree tops.......

Monday, June 18, 2012


Good Day Sparkfam!! It's been pretty warm here in Chicago but we are surviving. I know the pic above might be gross but this is my Sweet Little Trent. I found him on the ground outside of the mall in a nearby suburb. He was being fed upon by 6 thuggish ants! I mean seriously, he was being eaten alive by these black ants that were pushy & thought they could take me. A woman walked by & said the momma bird might come back & rescue the bird. I shewed the ants off the bird & went to do my shopping for Father's Day.

Well when I came back with my purchases in tow only to find the poor little thing was moving around to get the ants off of him. The bird above pictured is not my bird Trent but the pictures bares a strong resemblence to him though. Well, I had it! I shook the ants off & picked up the bird with an envelop that was in my purse. The ants still tried to get at me but I just stomped my foot. Apparently the ants in the suburbs are more gangsta than the ones in the city? Cause the black ants in the city move quickly in another direction if you stomp. Not these ants, they kept coming, like they were about to call back up. I was like do your thang as long as long as you back away from the bird.

I looked for the nest but couldn't see it. So I brought Trent home thinking that one of my neighbors would take him? She was terrified & didn't know how to help especially newborns? Me & oldest son took the bird home & got him into a tupperware bowl for him filled with paper towel. My daughter & youngest son came in not 20mins later. They were s in awe of the bird it was ridiculous! We got a lamp & looked for more details about the bird. He wouldn't eat but he pooped 3x so I think he had eaten.

We went to bed with the bird sleeping under the lamp & turned off the air too. Woke up this morning & my husband said something about the bird. I woke up & then ran downstairs, he was saying the bird was chirping with his mouth wide open to eat. He too the food in small quantities. He did alright but they said as long as I feed them when they wanted to eat. I then called the animal/wildlife rehab place for birds & they teld me where to take. My daughter wanted me to keep hm. Even my baby wanted me to keep him but it wasn't feasible & I thought his leg may have been broken. He was so cute even hairless he was beautiful!

I took him to the lakefront & found the place & dropped him off. I was saddened. I just wanted to take him home, I didn't know what to say. I haven't seen a robin in this area before. I did yesterday & my girlfriend says I am a hero. I don't thinks so? I was doing a small wonder but the people who help revive animals daily are the real heros! They have been in the renches & help the birs get healthy to fly away.

God bless,

Dee

    Dee, you made me cry. You are so good. We rescue animals over here too. Last month my husband found a Rooster in Bunker Hill Woods. We did rescue , my neighbor raises chicken two doors down. So now we are awakend by Rory (named after my husband) the Rooster!!! There is a place on the south side that takes in birds for a fifty dollar donation and restores them back to health , rescued a couple of pigeons last summer. Hugs Karen

Good Friday Sparkfam!!



I got up this morning and got a good 30min step aerobics workout. I wasn't really scheduled for that I was supposed to do 30mins of Zumba. I just didn't feel like rearranging the whole house to do it. Its much easier to just do step aerobics and be done.

I need to be doing another hour of cardio after the Wednesday that I had. I ate so much food, no let me rephrase, I ate TOO MUCH JUNK FOOD!

I mean, I did well with fruits & veggies throughout the day but when I got home....Oh boy!! I had a fish filet, fries & sips of coke. Then I moved on to ice cream because my son didn't make it back in time with the food. Then I had some red vines & then I thought you are ruining it for yourself! This is on top of the breakfast lunch & snacks. I had to STOP!! I got up the next day & did Boot Camp. I only intended to do 30mins but after the 3000+ calories, I need to even it out. I also, deducted food for Thursday which was unnecessary & just monitored myself. I mean, I am making progress, soon I will be able to go out in my tank tops without a cover up.

So I can't officially say that I have given up junk food for life but I am going to TRY to watch what I eat. It is a daunting task but I am so worth it.

God bless & TGIF!! That's on any day for me...

Dee

    The 3000+ calorie bombs really blow-up past victories. I am so impressed that you were able to not only return to your network, but also give a little extra of yourself at bootcamp.

    Oh lady, I'm proud of you for taking care of yourself so well! And I'm envious of being ready for tank tops. Two of my sisters & I inherited our mom's really big upper arms--it's nearly impossible to get that part of my body slimmed down! But I'm happy for you, despite my envy, heehee.

I'm off to Boston tomorrow for a week-long writers' workshop! I hope you have a really lovely weekend & good work week after that. I'm still keeping an eye out for something fun to do with you soon!
