DID I REALLY JUST SIGN UP FOR BOTH CHALLENGES????

Sunday, May 01, 2011

Yes, I did. Both sounded good and at this point in my SP journey I feel that I need all the help that I can get. Will be doing my very best to fullfil these challenges! emoticon

I CAN do this and I NEED to do this. (Hoping for a lot of encouragement from my fellow Sparkers.)

Good luck everyone!!

    YEAH! You CAN do this!!! There are probably a few things that overlap. Why not? I like Compucathy's comment about nothing to lose... but weight.

SPring Into Shape Bootcamp OR May Flowers Challenge (Leslie Sansone Spark Team)

Saturday, April 30, 2011

I am debating between these 2 challenges for the month of May and need to decide today. I enjoyed the April challenge (Leslie Team) as it kept me motivated to do the different parts.

I do not plan to wear a bathing suit this summer emoticon, but would like to do more strengthening exercises and something different in my workout time.

Any suggestions?

    I personally like to use oxygen magazine for my strength training and I also use work out dvd. I use kathy smith, jillian micheals and turbo jam. They really do work but you have to been eating right and doing cardio to balance everything out.

WOOHOO!! LIGHTS AND WATER BACK

Friday, April 29, 2011

Power and water came back on last night about 7:30 (48 hours after storm came through here). Now DH can use his breathing equipment properly and after I clean up around here and take a well needed shower :), I can get back to cooking something healthy and do some exercising.

Have a blessed day, fellow Sparkers!!

    Isn't it amazing what we take for granted daily? So glad you guys did okay.
Does he have a back -up inhaler or something like Spiriva when the nebulizer isn't working?
Have a better day!
Have a blessed week!

    Ours was only out for 9 hrs. and the whole time I was just thankful that I didn't have to weather the storms that the rest of the country did. Glad you are up and running. Have a great weekend.

NO POWER, NO WATER.....STILL

Thursday, April 28, 2011

We are fortunate that we were not injured and our home was not affected. Let's pray for all the other people affected by these terrible storms.

I am so tired (little sleep) and stressed. Nearly broke my right hand pulling on the pull handle (like on a lawnmower) of the generator this morning trying to start it. It is turning purple. Went to the store while ago to buy more gas (10 gallons) for the generator and more water. Sure would love a hot shower, but we do have lights with the generator so the refrigerator and freezers are okay.

The power went out Tuesday night and now it is almost 5 PM on Thursday. Hopefully soon.............

Bad storms and no electricity

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

We had some really bad storms and tornadoes come through Texas last night. We only had wind here, but lost our power about 7:30 PM. Now it is almost 4 PM the next day and still no power. Since we are on community water with a large well the water is gone too. We get so spoiled to what we think are "necessary" every day things. Currently, we have a generator going so cannot stay on here long. It is run by gas and only keeps on a few electrical items at one time.

We are doing fine but very tired. DH and I tried sleeping in our recliners last night (bedroom was too hot), but slept very little. Hope we get to sleep in our bed tonight.

We are thankful we did not have any tornado or bad wind.....it could have been a lot worse.

Signing off and wishing everyone a Spark-filled day.

    Maybe you will get your power on soon. I just heard that Alabama has a death toll of 136!!! I think we need to keep every state that was hit in prayers.

    It is so true that what used to be luxuries are now necessities. During an ice storm a few years back, our electricity was only off 2 days but dd and most were out for 14 days, by the time the rural lines were reconnected. Thank heavens we don't have that often and the tree limbs were really trimmed well afterwards by diligent electric coops. Hope it comes back soon and I know you'll appreciate it!! Brenda
