100 Happy Days

Saturday, April 19, 2014

100happydays.com Challenge as proposed by ONEKIDSMOM in her Tues Mar 25th blog. Everyday 'submit' a photo of something that made you happy. I don't do social media, so I didn't officially sign up through the site, but still decided to take on the challenge and post my photos on my Saturday blog here on SP.

Days 13-19


One of my favorite Body Pump instructors! It was 70s Disco day at the gym. She was the only one who dressed the part!


Yup, dat income tax return check. A day before Tax Day, too!


My running grounds; the beach. Even when it's cold and foggy.


My Spark Tracker! Glow baby, glow!


Polka dots. Yeah, some days it really is the little things.


My cycling gear; clip on shoes, gloves, and gel padded seat cover. (What, you don't have shoes with velcro?)


After a week of wearing my hair in styles only The Muppets would envy, finally a day of sleekness.

    Great blog Dee, love the Spark Tracker and the slide in shoes. If they are Velcro its so easy in my view! I love getting a tax refund even if the government does have the interest lol. They can put it toward the debt~

    I love this blog! So, I hope that this story makes you smile -- yesterday, we went to a memorial service (not the silly part). I wore a new dress that fit beautifully, and I looked great (not the silly part). I hooked Sparky onto my panties under my dress, and when I used the fancy schmancy ladies' room, Sparky jumped off and skidded a couple of stalls over -- it took me a couple of minutes, on my hands and knees in this fancy bathroom in my new dress and nylons before I found him (yes, the silly part. I give you the visual...) -- LOL!!

    Have I ever said I love your hair? Glad it makes you happy, too! Oh, and YES, my bike shoes have Velcro!

Oops... forgot to say your instructor looks like a fun one!

    Good reminders! I was thinking about your blog and I loooooooove your 100 happy days idea. I think I am going to give that a shot as well. Focusing on our mental health as well as our physical health is equally important. This is something I definitely need to do. Thanks for being a part of the team and your positivity. You rock, girl!

Recap of Weekly Goals

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Here's how the week went:



Sunday, I hopped on a spin bike before the Body Pump class.

Monday, I decided to make it a rest day. Yup, that's right: rest day. I didn't even hop on my mini cycle.

Tuesday, I made it to the Power Yoga class emoticon

Wednesday, after declaring it another rest day, I ended up hopping on my mini cycle after a nap and dinner.
[I read somewhere, ALICIA363s Weds blog to be exact, it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind. So I did!]

Thursday, I did the Crunch Time (all abs) and Turbo Kick classes.

Friday, I was up WAY too early to get my mom to her 0645am MRI appointment. By clock out time I just wanted to lay down and relax. Another rest day.

Saturday, I headed to the gym right after the laundry and errands were done. I did some intervals on the treadmill.

The tentative plan for next week:


We'll see how I end up filling the blanks.

April challenges:
- At Goal & Maintaining + Transition to Maintenance Team: Earth Day Maintenance Challenge- emoticon 1 lb over my goal weight
- 100happydays.com challenge (as proposed by ONEKIDSMOM in her Tues Mar 25th blog)- emoticon pictures posted on yesterdays blog
- Go to the gym 4 days a week- emoticon

100 Happy Days

Saturday, April 12, 2014

The 100happydays.com Challenge as proposed by ONEKIDSMOM in her Tues Mar 25th blog. Everyday 'submit' a photo of something that made you happy. I don't do social media, so I didn't officially sign up through the site, but still decided to take on the challenge and post my photos on my Saturday blog here on SP.

Days 6-12


Sunny Southern California weather. [Anything below 68 is cold around here. This was the temp at 10am]


Yup, that's bubble wrap, different colors and bubble sizes. [Who doesn't love popping bubble wrap?!]


My yoga mat, part of it, I was sitting on it emoticon


I wasn't sure how to take a picture of a nap, but I think this nailed it. The boyfriend and I, of course emoticon


Siblings Day, yup I only have one.


My nephew! He's in his Batman phase.


My door of hanging workout shoes. [No, it's not all of them. For a kid who grew up owning one pair of shoes at a time, this is a big deal emoticon ]

Terrific blog -- was that really you and your boyfriend? You've known each other like "all your life?"

Hugs, and have a good evening.
