Spark Dreams

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Yesterday I was sick. I was finally able to nap a little. I couldn't beleive my dreams - I was collecting spark points!

Somehow I had figured out a way to get 10 for every entry. If that wasn't enough, I was tracking food. I had all kinds of tasty treat on my nutritional page. The games our minds play!

    emoticon Wouldn't it be nice if we had a dream where we were at goal weight and woke up to find out it was true? Oh, well. We'll just keep working on this together! J

    Never thought about going to sleep to get Spark Points! Would have been nice if they were still there when you woke up!

The Weekend Went So Quickly

Monday, February 06, 2012

Seems like the weekend was a blur. It sped by. That's what happens when I take things easy. Today I have a pile of dishes to take care of, tax forms to sort, and bills to pay. Life resumed!

    I notice that time goes much faster as I age, so I need to try to enjoy each minute. Good luck with those chores, then take some time to smell the roses (or the snow flakes in your part of the country!) emoticon

The Morning Of

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Superbowl Sunday is finally here. Since it all began it's been about the commercials and the food as far as I am concerned.

I sent my granddaughter (13) a recipe for a pizza pinwheel made in a whole grain tortilla. I think that will be a winner. I should also send her a recipe that includes fruit. What a great opportunity to pass along some of the things I've learned since becoming a sparker.

    Trust your recipe is a winner. Have a great day! I plan on being busy with knitting projects for my first grand daughter in May. So far a sweater almost done & then start a blanket. Enjoy the game and being a grand parent. Perahps some day I'll be sharing my recipes with my grand daughter!

    What a lucky girl to have you for a grandma! I watch the Puppy Bowl instead of the Super Bowl!

Where did my walkway go?

Saturday, February 04, 2012

Earlier this week I burned calories shoveling the sand off my walkway, This time fierce winds have blown snow across it. I'm talking drifts between 4 and 6 feet. Yesterday I shoveled a path but you'd never know to look at it now. It's still blowing, so I might get two workouts in today!

Funny thing, the roads are clear! If the wind stops blowing I'll get to take a short bike ride and learn how to use the gears. I just love living in Colorado!

    Amazing! We're not supposed to have that much, but I just looked out and it is snowing like mad! Take care out there!

February Heart Exercise - Shoveling Sand!

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

I live on the plains. Tumbleweeds, prairie grass and thorny plants thrive in the sand. It's a windy place too. There is so much sand covering my front walk from last night's wind that I will literally have to shovel it off. That ought to burn some calories and rev up my metabolism!

It would be great to be able to exercise barefoot in the sand, but it's much too cool for that. I am seriously considering putting a big deep box of sand in the house. I can set the laptop up on the bar and walk in place in the sand. There really is good in even the most annoying of life's little tricks! emoticon

    What a great idea - I'd love to do that, but fear the cats would cry out in joy - NEW LITTER BOX! emoticon
