New living room furniture :)

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

Hi..busy , busy day..I helped with chores ..too cold to be outside..had on gloves and mitts and still froze my fingers!! Cutting twine, etc..still no calves yet..thank goodness since it's so cold here and we went to Moose Jaw for new livingroom furniture this afternoon and got home after supper. All's fine, no calves yet...still any day now.

I love my new furniture..sofa, love seat, pillows and area rug :) I'll take a picture later and post it. It was quite a work out unloading it and taking off the legs and PUSHING it through the almost didn't fit. We brought the love seat in through the front and 4 tight doorways and corners and then we brought the sofa in around the back only one door but big snowbanks the whole way and I fell in the snow once!!

Well I was down a couple pounds this a.m. must have been all that dreaded salt in the meals from away from home...

Still working on March's goals..will post when I have more time..tonight this is just quick since I'm off to bed, and tomorrow I'm off to Weyburn to take the Dodge diesel one-ton in for an oil change..hubby's staying home since the cows are so close to calving....

Better run...thanks for stopping by, keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    Those calves just don't want to come out in this kind of weather, thank goodness!! Looks like your weather was just as nasty as ours today, about the only difference being the direction of the wind. Ours was E and ESE most of the day. I'm not sure I was as cold all winter as I was when I had to go outside today.

Spring is coming, spring is coming, repeat to myself spring is coming...

I WISH ! ! !


p.s. Congrats on the new furniture.

Hi..I've had a bit of a break and now I'm back..I missed blogging while I had my granddaughters here for 6 days, then brought them home on Sunday and then off to Weyburn I'm pooped!!

I had a great time with the little girls and made out okay while hubby was gone to Moose Jaw for his 2 days last week (taking care of 2 little girls and 140 cows) the only problem was the afternoon of the last day one of the water bowls froze up just a few hours before hubby came home..too bad it's so cold here still..and last night was a big blizzard again!! with very cold wind's record cold here for March 1st..hasn't been this cold since 1916 or something. March is in like a lion..hope it's out like a lamb then!!!

Too many days of not tracking or keeping close tabs on what I was eating and I'm up a few pounds so I'm ready to get back on track for March...first to recap February....

My theme was heart health/love/romance...

emoticonRefresh spark page..did that :)

emoticonEat red fruits and veggies..did that..lots of tomatoes, apples, red peppers and cranberry juice everyday :)

emoticonFocus on heart lots of articles, tried to eat healthy most days, got lots of exercise steps toward a healthy heart :)

emoticonFocus on love..gave goodies to spark friends, etc..connected with friends and family including grandkids, kids, sisters and hubby :) My life is very blessed with all the love in my life :)

emoticonFocus on romance...:)

emoticonFocus on exercise...rode bike or did chores or swam or chased kids and even used the gym at the spa..granddaughters even made me a weight exercise booklet with pictures and everything of stuff they made's fun to use..gotta love 6 and 9 year olds :)

emoticonMake a collage...not yet..I'll try for March...

emoticonTiny chocolate treat daily..well that one was so easy..a few days I had more than one little piece but I bought 2 huge bars of dark chocolate (one with almonds) shared with hubby and still have a few pieces left for special treats..:)

emoticonPamper me daily..well I'm sure I missed a few days of that but I include lots of different things in the pamper category so maybe I did quite well after all :)

emoticonMoose Jaw spa..a great weekend :)

emoticonlose 4 to 5 pounds ..well I might have lost 4 but gained 6 so all in all not too bad of a month..time to really get sparked and get serious about this!! I let getting busy, or going away make me go off track too easily but I'm not going to beat myself up over it..I gained all this extra weight..40 to 50 pounds over lots of years so I can't expect it to leave this quickly :) Slow and steady is best!!

Well that's my February recap..I'm very happy with my progress and all my healthy habits that are forming..

..look out I come....

Thanks for dropping by..for a chat and tea..I'm off to make some green tea while I think up some March goals..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    I just love what comes out of our grand-children! They're so in tune with us hahahaha. Thanks for the laugh! hahahaha

My moment came when my grandson asked "grand-maman why is your stomach so big now" He was the one that made me realize that I had to make changes!

On that day I promised him that I would start eating properly and exercise so that I could be healthy like they are....his big smile, huge hug, I love you so much grand-maman has been my inspiration!

Great Blog!!!!!

Holiday Monday...

Monday, February 21, 2011

Hi..I've been watching tv tonight and catching up on 4 days of food and exercise!! I went over my calories most days, but not too bad and I did get lots of exercise in shopping, walking, at the pool and we even checked out the gym..treadmill, elliptical and weight bench :)

Today I did laundry and got the rooms ready for the granddaughters and some other house work and did ride my bike for 30 minutes...I baked hubby some cookies..he was busy getting extra chores done for when he goes away Wednesday and Thursday. Daughter doesn't need the girls back until Sunday so I get to keep them for 6 days :)

I need to get back on track but it might take until March to get my Spark back..I did gain one pound over the weekend which I can live with but it's not helping me reach my February goals!!

Of course I'll get lots of extra exercise once the little girls get here..but it's harder to keep up with the tracking and point getting and blogging so if my blogs are short or not at all you'll know why.

Thanks for all the comments and for stopping by my blog for a chat..I'm so glad I was able to get to the spa weekend :) I really appreciate you all :)

Love Donna emoticon

Home from my fantastic spa weekend!!!!

Sunday, February 20, 2011

Hi..I'm so glad I got to get to Moose Jaw for the spa weekend :) Hubby drove me out to the main road Friday morning. The grid road had lots of snow banks but they all had tracks through them..but they were truck tracks so I had to take a run at them and the car dragged through them..made it to the highway though!! All the snow banks were cleared off the highways but I could tell why they were closed on Thursday since there were so many places the snowbanks had been across the highway. I just came across one upside down truck in the ditch.

We made it to Moose Jaw and had the most wonderful relaxing time!! We had special, light meals..a couple room service meals..more pool time..brought instant oatmeal for easy breakfasts , did a bit of shopping, used the hotel gym, and swam for hours and hours..the outdoor part was fun but steamy and cold on the head..was about -28 C so swimming outside was "cool" I had to do my usual swedish habit of climbing out of the outside pool and walk through the snow and make a snow ball.. We stayed up each night past 1 a.m. enjoying wine, beer and laughs!!

Home now and relaxing..made supper and I'm watching the outdoor classic hockey game.. Calgary is winning :) Son ended up staying at friends in Regina instead of coming home for the weekend..too cold to be out ski-dooing or coyote hunting. I have lots of tracking to do to catch up but will work on that tomorrow.

I have one day to rest up before I go get the granddaughters for almost a week :)

Better go for now..thanks so much for stopping by and all your comments :) Keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    That sounds like fun-We have a place to swim where you can pay by the day and it has tropical plants. I wanted to be "pool ready, in a one piece" by May, but I'm having a hard time with it. emoticon
