I'm sitting at work right now waiting for 5 o'clock. emoticon When I leave here I'm goin to work out with my sparkbuddy AMELIA! I have exactly 17 min to go. I am just thinking about what I need to do when I get there. I hope that the trainer Anthony helps us today. He always makes me sweat, which is a good thing. I wish i could afford him as my personal trainer. It sucks being

I am also waiting on tomorrow to get here because I haven't had my dog in 3 weeks!! I am missing her dearly!! She has been with my mom for a chance to run free without her leash for 3 weeks. Stupid apartments. I wish I could afford her a house and a big yard! Dang maybe I just need to go buy a lottery ticket. I am needy! haha.'s only been three minutes. Everything is done. Hmmm....well I do plan on making a healthy dinner when I get home later from working out. Wow...I just have so much to look forward to....not.

My life is so lame.

It's official....I'm a nerd.

Okay so tonight I skipped out on the gym and I just decided I would take my dog for a long walk then I would do a work out dvd. Well I did take Chyna for a walk as I do every night. But instead of a dvd....I'm almost embarrassed to admit this but it's hilarious....I jogged around my apartment for 10 min. I am a dork! But at least I did a little something. And the funniest part was I was singing the whole time to my dog that was looking at me like I was some crazy person! THEN I started singing about me singing and how I should stop singing, but I couldn't!!! LOL emoticon

Sorry to those....

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I just want to say sorry to those that have sent me comment and goodies and anything on my page and never heard a thank you from me! I promise it's not because I am not thankful, it's because I never know when I receive anything. I still can't figure out how to get notifications sent to my email about activity on my sparkpage. So when I am on here I try to remember to check everything like my picture comments, blog comments, goodies, page comments and everything else I can think of just in case. So I am so sorry if you haven't heard back from me. I promise I'm not a mean person lol. So here's a big THANKS! to everyone that has sent me something!!! And here's a big THANKS to those who happen to in the future if I miss it. x

p.s. I know I'm prolly a nerd for writing this but I just don't want anyone to think I am hateful and have no manners lol. x

    Hey there, Ciara. I hope all is well with you. It's been quite a while since I checked in with ya. Things are going OK in my world. I'm working through a little "burn out" phase where I got out of my routine for about 6 weeks (but I still made good choices, just didn't exercise a whole lot) I'm ready to get back at it now, My goal is tooclose to not go for it whole-heartedly!!! I've got about 13 pounds to lose by Christmas. I can do it! If you haven't figured it out by now, go to your spark page and hit "edit my page" the there are some little boxes to check one of them is for email me when I get goodies or comments. Make sure you then click on "save changes". I am sure NO ONE thinks bad of you for not getting back to them. Take care and God Bless. Rick emoticon emoticon emoticon

20 Things you didn't know about obesity.

Monday, September 21, 2009

I came across this article this morning on MSN...first I read the one on skin, then found this one and I just had to share. Pretty crazy stuff.

1. Child-safety seat manufacturers are starting to make bigger models after a recent study showed that over 250,000 U.S. children age 6 and under are too fat to use them.

2. According to a study by the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity at Yale University, nearly half the 4,000 people responding to an online survey about obesity said they would give up a year of their life rather than be fat.

3. Between 15 percent and 30 percent also said they would rather walk away from their marriage, give up the possibility of having children, be depressed, or become alcoholic rather than be obese.

4. Five percent and 4 percent, respectively, said they would rather lose a limb or be blind than be overweight.

5. From 1991 to 2000, the average weight of Americans increased by 8.5 pounds.

6. In 2004, the Federal Aviation Administration increased its estimate of the weight of the average male from 170 to 184 pounds.

7. Airlines spent $275 million on 350 million additional gallons of fuel in 2000 to compensate for the additional weight of their passengers. Now we know why the peanuts are no longer free!

8. Stand by your man: More than a decade ago, Manuel Uribe, now weighing 1,200 pounds (the equivalent of five baby elephants) and bedridden for the past five years, was abandoned by his wife because she was frightened by his increasing size.

9. Virgin Atlantic paid Barbara Hewson from Wales the equivalent of US$24,100 in 2002 as compensation after she was squashed by an obese person sitting next to her on a transatlantic flight. Barbara suffered a blood clot in her chest, torn leg muscles, and acute sciatica and was bedridden for a month.

10. Duke University Medical Center found that women and men who lost 10 percent of their total body weight reported a significant improvement in their sexual quality of life.

11. Obesity ranks second among preventable causes of death. Tobacco use is number one.

12. According to the Department of Veteran Affairs, of the 7.5 million veterans who receive their health benefits from the agency, more than 70 percent are overweight and 20 percent have diabetes, which may lead to blindness, amputations, and kidney and heart problems.

13. Two years ago, the Hardee's fast-food chain introduced the 1,420-calorie 107-fat-gram "Monster Thickburger." It contains two 1/3-pound slabs of Angus beef, four strips of bacon, three slices of cheese, and mayonnaise on a buttered sesame-seed bun.

14. Mississippi is the home of the mud pie, Cajun fried pecans, sweet potato crunch, fried shrimp, and catfish. Mississippi is also home to the country's fattest peopleómore than 25 percent of adult Mississippians are obese. Coincidence?

15. Recent studies have shown that obesity can cause you to lose sleep.

16. On the other hand, a lack of sleep may result in obesity.

17. It's a vicious cycle.

18. Never forget your past: Aborigines and the Pima indians of Arizona developed obesity, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension after transitioning to a Western lifestyle.

19. If the entire morbidly obese population of the U.S. lived in one state, it would be the 12th highest-populated state, with more people than Virginia.

20. A 2003 study reported that 21 percent of all New York City elementary students from all income levels are obese.
